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.

    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!

    This was the perfect venue for our wedding and is such a beautiful spot. We first visited in February and even though all the rose bushes were trimmed back, we liked the layout of the gardens, and could tell that it would be really stunning when everything was in bloom. We worked with Kelly from the start, and she was super helpful answering our questions, showing us photos from different seasons, and suggesting vendors. Both she and Rebecca were extremely prompt answering emails and made the whole process much easier. We picked a lot of vendors from their suggested list and I'd definitely recommend doing the same; the caterer, DJ, and decoration company knew the venue so well and worked seamlessly together.

    The gazebo and rose garden are really lovely for the ceremony and photos, and it was wonderful having a cocktail hour on the patio before moving up to dinner in the reception room. The room looks a little bland on it's own, but I couldn't believe how it transformed once all the tables and decorations were set up. It's sort of like a blank canvas, so you can dress the room up however you like.

    Planning a wedding can be stressful, but I feel like ours was much easier than it could have been, in large part thanks to the venue we chose.

    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.
