The Dawes Arboretum is not currently scheduling weddings.

 

 

Japanese Garden – The Arboretum’s premiere garden offers guests a serene and beautiful view. Ceremonies are held on the island with the guests standing around the water’s edge. This ceremony site can accommodate up to 50 guests. To preserve the serenity of the Japanese garden, only a dozen chairs are permitted.

Bertie’s Garden – Enjoy our charming historical flower garden inspired by the diaries of our co-founder Bertie Dawes. Walk down the aisle of our striking manicured lawn surrounded by beautiful floral display beds on both sides. Reach the stone circle path and exchange vows overlooking the pond. This ceremony site can accommodate up to 100 guests.
