About The Gardens at Heather Farm

Beneath the peaks of majestic Mount Diablo, in the picturesque and thriving city of Walnut Creek, rests The Gardens at Heather Farm. With six acres of beautiful terrain, natural landscapes, and a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces, this serene and stylish venue is one of the most popular wedding locations in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The rose-covered Gazebo, with its imported slate tile roof, is a perfect spot to say "I do." Adjacent to thousands of blooming flowers in the rose garden, the Gazebo provides a unique and classic backdrop for wedding ceremonies. An open, grassy area with panoramic garden views and a variety of pretty trees and shrubs, the Meadow Lawn is also a lovely natural setting for outdoor ceremonies. After the nuptials, wedding couples will enjoy prime photo opportunities in various landscapes around the six acre property, while guests stroll through the gardens on their way to the Patio and Pavilion for cocktail hour. The Patio and Pavilion is a vibrant and versatile terrace bordered by a garden of raised flower beds and features a caterer-friendly, granite-topped bar perfect for serving appetizers and drinks while guests mingle and enjoy the sights. Receptions are held in the elegant Camellia Room, a bright and airy banquet space, with high-beamed ceilings, skylights and large windows bathing the room in natural light. With neutral walls and classic hardwood-style floors (perfect for dancing), this elegant room is easy to decorate using additional lighting, draperies, lanterns or flowers. Adjacent to the main room, there is a bridal dressing area, a caterer's warming kitchen and a spacious wrap-around deck that gives guests access to the outdoors.

In addition to being a top-rated Bay Area wedding venue, The Gardens at Heather Farm is also a nonprofit public garden and nature education center helping to spread community-wide appreciation for our natural world, and your wedding fees help support this mission.

    Beautiful and elegant location.

    When it’s time to decide for our wedding venue, I tried browsing online to see pictures of possible places that we might like. The Gardens at Heather Farms was the first thing that we saw and to be honest, we didn’t really looked somewhere else anymore because the pictures of this place online were all pretty. Me and my fiancé immediately went there the next day and we knew from that very moment that this is going to be the place our wedding will take place. The ambiance was very romantic and serene which are perfect for our wedding. Rebecca helped us and toured us around the place and she was very helpful and knowledgeable. She was suggesting a lot of things which gave us ideas on what we should do on our wedding day. We Did our ceremony at the gazebo and the reception at the Camella hall. Our guests were all saying that our venue was so beautiful which proves that we made the right choice. We love the Gardens and we highly recommend it!

    Elegant and Affordable: A dream venue

    This place is a fairy tale and the absolute best venue to have your wedding. From their incredible staff (Rebecca is amazing) to the stunning garden full of every flower imagable, to the stunning backdrop, this is the perfect place to start the rest of your lives together. We didn’t live in Walnut Creek when we booked the venue and Rebecca spoke to us on the phone for about an hour easing any concern and answering every question we had with kindness and care. She was so on top of communication and every detail we hadn’t considered. She even recommended a phenomenal florist for us (Sweetness and Light), based on my personality, who we simply adored.. The Gardens at Heather Farms is one of the most stunning places I have ever seen, with an exceptional staff, and a gorgeous venue, this is hands down one of the best affordable and elegant Bay Area finds. Book now, while there is still space available.

    Such a beautiful venue and the staff was very accommodating (allowing us to use the library and classroom downstairs as prep areas). They were communicative throughout the planning process, especially when discussing a rain option given my wedding was in November. I was so pleased with the gazebo and surrounding foliage. It was the perfect wedding venue!

    The Gardens at Heather Farms is sooooo beautiful! We love to work events there. The outdoor gardens are just perfect for any event. So many areas to take pictures , tons of beautiful and colorful flowers. The indoor reception room views the gardens from its huge windows and upper patio. The onsite staff is so friendly and helpful. We cater many wedding events at this location and by far a favorite.
