The Gardens at Heather Farm is a beautiful indoor/outdoor wedding and event venue located in Walnut Creek, CA. With six acres of lushly landscaped gardens surrounding a two-level banquet and meeting facility and accommodating up to 150 guests, the venue has been a local favorite for wedding nuptials for over 35 years. Founded by a collective of local gardening enthusiasts and managed by a community-based nonprofit organization, The Gardens offers a venue support team that understands what it means to be "inspired by nature" and helps couples bring that passion to each wedding day. The venue's vibe? Rustic, natural and classic. The venue's philosophy? One wedding, one venue to celebrate love. Your outdoor ceremony takes place in a peaceful garden setting at the vine-covered Gazebo or the expansive Meadow Lawn. Romantic photo opportunities are plentiful, especially in the Cowden Rose Garden filled with thousands of colorful blooms from spring through fall. Guests love sharing appetizers and drinks while enjoying the garden views during cocktail hour at an outdoor Patio & Pavilion. Your festive wedding day tops off with dinner and dancing in the spacious Camellia Room banquet hall. Added venue amenities include ceremony and reception furniture, free on-site parking, caterer's warming kitchen, and private dressing rooms to make your special day convenient and comfortable. During the planning process, the venue's events team will help bring your wedding visions to life providing assistance with logistics, vendor selection and other details. And on wedding day, a venue staff member will be on site during the entire event to assist with facility needs. Through over three decades of success, this six-acre, garden-based property has become one of the most popular wedding locations in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2019, more couples inquired about hosting a wedding at The Gardens than in any prior year and the property now hosts over 100 weddings annually. In addition to serving as a premier event venue, this nonprofit community treasure is also home to a free public garden and nature education center advocating the importance of protecting our planet.
