My niece had her wedding here and it was just beautiful. the roses were in bloom and were spectacular. There's an indoor area used for catering and it's just perfect.

A beautiful garden to visit. I would suggest in spring when blooms are so wonderful. There are benches where you can relax. Great for photo opportunities as well. The fragrance of roses is in the air.

My cousin had her wedding here this past weekend and it was just beautiful! The garden was breath taking especially the cherry blossoms. The blue sky made the pictures just perfect! It was the perfect wedding!
