Weddings

For your special day, plan a wedding made by nature. Set your wedding outdoors in one of our formal gardens or spaces, or indoors amid the lush tropical setting of the Conservatory. We offer seven distinct spaces, including a fragrant Herb Knot Garden, colorful Perennial Garden, the serene and intimate Willow Pond Island, or the summer-blooming Gateway Garden. See the chart below for more information on our rates and venues. All outdoor weddings include an indoor backup space in case of inclement weather.

We strive to offer a welcoming environment for all couples, including LGBTQIA2S+.  We embrace and value all couples who choose to make MBGNA a place to celebrate their commitments.
