About

Up to 100 guests

The Garden Weddings & Events is an outdoor wedding venue located in Escondido, California, just half an hour away from San Diego. Situated within the city鈥檚 historic district, the property was initially built in 1910 for Sallie and A.W. Wohlford. Throughout the century, the impressive home was well known for its picturesque gardens and charming ambiance for social gatherings. Today, couples can enjoy the same atmosphere when celebrating their milestone moments here more than 100 years later.

Facilities and Capacity

The Garden Weddings & Events offers a beautiful, private setting for once-in-a-lifetime celebrations. Towering evergreens and strands of market lighting create a canopy over the lush grounds, providing a romantic atmosphere for any occasion. On the lawn, couples can exchange vows under dappled sunlight and The Golden State鈥檚 expansive skies. Celebratory drinks, dining, and dancing can also take place in this area. At one side of the lawn is a charming brick pathway, leading those celebrating to a gazebo surrounded by foliage at the back of the yard. The structure invites newlyweds and their loved ones to enjoy its refreshing vantage point set away from the festivities. Complete with a chandelier, it provides a charming, intimate setting for those celebrating to create lifelong memories and share loving conversations. The open-air space鈥檚 focal point is the main house鈥檚 raised, crescent deck. The platform can be used as a stage for engaging live music or DJ sets. Ceremonies can also be held here. To witness the venue鈥檚 beauty for themselves, the staff welcomes couples to take a tour of the grounds. The venue鈥檚 event staff welcomes to-be-weds planning weekend celebrations only at this time.

Services Offered

To create as seamless a planning experience as possible, The Garden Weddings & Events team has curated two wedding packages. The Wedding Package features a six-hour rental for up to 75 guests, and the Elopement Package is for a three-hour celebration with 30 loved ones. Both include an array of services and amenities. Tables and chairs will be provided for every occasion. To help ensure that the big day runs smoothly, the venue鈥檚 staff and a security team will be on the property. They are there to assist the venue coordinator throughout the event for a truly unforgettable experience. Adding to the space鈥檚 ambiance is a surround sound system, allowing couples to create their ideal ceremony and reception settings.

    The absolutely perfect venue. Highly recommend for any event.

    Incredible venue! Everything about this venue was perfect. True to its name, the garden is just that. A beautiful and luscious garden that provides serenity for guests. The staff are attentive and ready to assist in any way. I was very impressed by all the venue had to offer. I would absolutely host another event here in the future.

    Beautiful & Intimate Venue

    I did not have a wedding at The Garden but I definitely would. I did have my baby shower here and it was the absolute perfect venue for the theme "A Baby Boy is Brewing Tea Party." It was such a dreamy day from start to finish and every little detail was perfect. The mimosa bar in the gazebo was a huge hit among the ladies, the historical home is absolutely gorgeous and all the lush trees and plants give it that secret garden feel. It is definitely a hidden little gem in the heart of Downtown Escondido and I highly recommend to anyone looking for something that is intimate and outdoors.
