About Sherman Library and Gardens

Sherman Library & Gardens is a beautiful botanical setting for a picture perfect garden wedding. The 2.2 acre botanical wonderland, surrounded by early California architecture, is located in the heart of Corona del Mar, California.

Wide brick walkways wind throughout the grounds with bubbling tile fountains and flower beds abundant with seasonal color. The tropical conservatory, housing bromeliads, orchids, ferns, and a koi pond is a beautiful backdrop for photos.

Walk down the aisle in the enchanting Tea Garden with hanging baskets radiating seasonal color, or tie the knot underneath a stately 81-year old California pepper tree. The Pepper Tree Patio, shaded by a large and delicate leafed pepper tree, is an enchanting spot for serving beverages and appetizers after the ceremony. The pepper tree is adorned with market lights throughout its branches. After dark, it's just one of many magical spots throughout Sherman Gardens.

For indoor receptions, Sherman Gardens offers the Central Patio Room, a space reminiscent of early California architecture, with a cathedral ceiling, gray wood beams, and skylights. A large brick fireplace and terracotta tiled floors create a warm and cozy atmosphere. On a warm evening, the French doors that line the perimeter of the room can be opened, allowing the party to overflow onto the covered terrace, adjacent to the Central Garden.

Exclusive use of Sherman Gardens lets you create the wedding of your dreams.

    I had envisioned myself marrying my boyfriend at in these gardens for years, so I was so happy that we were able to get married here! Every garden is beautiful. They're well-maintained and show how personal the care is. The women who were in charge of booking the space and coordinating the event were nice, but very hands-off. I spoke to one on the phone, but didn't realize there would be two (or any) coordinators onsite until the rehearsal. I assumed we'd only deal with the catering manager and whichever staff was around. In the future, this should be made clear to people ahead of time. I took away 1 star because of the miscommunication. The venue is also expensive- you have to have a certain level of membership in order to book the venue. The catering (I'll review them separately) was sneakily expensive, but the food was great. It was all worth it, but having a wedding here requires a lot of money!!

    Sherman Gardens is a lovely place to get married in Orange County. My now-husband and I have lived in Newport Beach for a few years now, and because this area means so much to us, we knew we wanted to get married locally. We wanted something outdoors, but sill protected from the elements in case the weather didn't cooperate. Privacy was also an important element, as I did not want crowds of people overlooking our special moment. Sherman Gardens certainly allowed us the beauty of the outdoors, with protection from the elements, in a "secret garden" atmosphere. I loved that it was secluded and enclosed, making the entire gardens feel like ours for the evening. The guests really enjoyed the experience as well.

    Stefanie was very helpful during the planning process, and Christina was a big help on day-of.

    The gardens offers a very unique and beautiful backdrop to your special day, I highly recommend it - and you will always have a very lovely place for an "Anniversary Brunch!"
