The well manicured grand lawn provides a natural canvas surrounded by live oaks and is perfect for accommodating grand scale ceremonies for up to 300 guests.

This crafsman-style building brings the outside in with its natural and rustic architecture, concrete floors and vaulted ceilings. The hall is located near the entrance of the gardens with an outdoor courtyard style patio.

Perched high above the Descanso Gardens landscape on the crest of a hill, the regency style two-story, 22 room mansion, creates an ideal setting for smaller intimate gatherings.

Gazebo & Pavillion
Couples can wed at the Victorian-style gazebo, and continue their outdoor celebration in a timber and stone pavilion bordered by the bloom’s of rose bushes from around the world.

This airy and divine forest has trails off the beaten path, shade and a central location ideal for exchanging vows underneath live oaks.
