The Anderson Japanese Gardens gave me the wedding of my dreams. The staff were incredible, very professional, and helped us every step of the way. The wedding was fabulous and we were able to get breathtaking pictures. The guests have time to walk around the gardens after the ceremony. An evening ceremony is recommended if you want a more private ceremony. The gardens is truly a remarkable place, and is highly recommended for an outside wedding especially under the pavilion.
