About The Camellia Gardens Wedding Venue

Camellia Gardens was purchased in 1987, originally designed to be a family home and farmstead. It served as a nursery and garden center for a while but eventually found its purpose as an event venue instead. After hosting weddings, parties, and events on their property for years, the owners decided to reimagine Camellia Gardens so that other couples could utilize the beautiful grounds for their own weddings full of happy memories.

Today, Camellia Gardens offers a variety of outdoor spaces for romantic ceremonies and elegant but lively celebrations. Their events team helps you bring your dream wedding to life with the stunning grounds and features of Camellia Gardens as your venue.

Details of the Grounds

There are several ways to envision your wedding at Camellia Gardens, though all their spaces are outdoors. 

The Pergola Lawn and the Lake are perfect for a ceremony for up to 150 guests, with views overlooking the property’s serene lake. A stately white pergola creates the perfect focal point for a romantic vow exchange, surrounded by rolling green lawns and beautiful trees. 

The Tent provides shelter for guests in case of rain, harsh sun, or other unexpected weather. Spanning over 3100 square feet, there is room for up to 150 guests for a seated reception, your dance floor, and DJ! Don’t let weather concerns keep you from the garden wedding of your dreams. 

Fragrant tea olive shrubs and rose bushes surround the Arbor, creating a sweet, intimate space ideal for a ceremony. It does have a roof, making it an ideal backup plan in case rain threatens to dampen your day. With ceiling fans and lovely architecture, it’s an ideal space for up to 150 people for a cozy ceremony.

Even More Ceremony Locations!

If you’re looking for a slightly more rustic venue space, the Barn is a stable-turned-elegant reception hall with modern chandeliers, high ceilings, and a covered patio. The space can adapt to any design, whether rustic or elegant and has room for 80 guests indoors and another 50 on the covered patio. 

The Terrace provides an open-air reception area surrounded by roses, shrubs, and trees. Tall pillars, bistro lighting, and a copper-topped cupola make this a unique space for your wedding. It’s also ideal for cocktail hour or as a dance floor in conjunction with a reception held in the Tent! 

Lastly, the trees surround the garden, focusing on a smaller pergola, creating an intimate ceremony space. With room for up to 100 people, your guests will appreciate the shady setting and picturesque space!
