A hidden gem!

I dreamed of a romantic outdoor wedding that is both accessible and close to nature, we surveyed many popular locations in SoCal, nothing came even close to what the LA Arboretum can offer! The grounds are meticulously well kept and there are endless beautiful spots for photos, as well as an assortment of locations to choose from for the event. For our July wedding of 150, we chose the Rose Garden for the ceremony and Aryes Hall for reception. The Arboretum foundation provides the venue, the on-site caterer The Fresh Gourmet provides the catering, rentals, and service. Carlos and the team at Fresh Gourmet are extremely capable and showed genuine care and dedication to make sure our special day was everything we had dreamed of. The food was delicious, our guests had a blast! We couldn't thank them enough. Highly recommend!

Beautiful Garden Wedding at the LA County Arboretum

We had our wedding here on 7/9/23 and we couldn't have asked for a better experience and a more beautiful venue. We had our ceremony in the gazebo on the Event Lawn, and the reception at the Peacock Cafe. We were able to take beautiful photos all around the arboretum.

Carlos and Nicole who run the on-site Peacock Cafe also take care of weddings, and they were AMAZING! Carlos helped us set up all the logistics and made sure everything we wanted was able to happen. Nicole made us a completely vegan menu (dumpling-based buffet( that was DELICIOUS! She was lovely to work with and we couldn't believe this was her 2nd-ever vegan wedding. Everyone raved about the food!

Altogether we were so happy with our experience here. Carlos and Nicole are incredibly kind and are excellent at their jobs. They also helped us secure a wonderful DJ and helped us plan a beautiful wedding while staying in budget. The whole staff at the Arboretum made the night go amazingly smoothly. I couldn't recommend them enough!

I've been going to the LA Arboretum since I was a child, and it was so special for me to have our wedding and reception there. Lucky for me, the Arboretum is also one of the most cost effective places to get married in LA County. The staff was very professional, and always answered promptly by phone. The Rose Garden was a gorgeous location for the ceremony. We had a flyover of two geese during our vows that everyone talked about afterwards. We loved having so many options for beautiful backgrounds for photos, especially the grand old oak trees. The Peacock Cafe was incredibly accommodating, allowing us to use the existing tables, chairs, and lighting, and to save on renting a dance floor by using the interior of the cafe. The photos of The Peacock Cafe at dusk are stunning, too. One of the best parts about getting married at the Arboretum is that we can go back whenever we like. I'm looking forward to bringing our children there one day, too.
