The Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden The intimate perfection of the Japanese Garden in Long Beach creates a romantic setting for weddings, receptions and photo sessions. The site’s privacy and impeccably maintained grounds attract discerning couples seeking a unique outdoor setting for their wedding. Surrounded by tall trees, the elegant 1.3-acre garden features a lush green landscape, the perfect foil for a gracefully arched bridge, shimmering koi pond, and sparkling waterfalls. The garden’s natural beauty inspires dreams of love and provides the ideal backdrop for the wedding ceremony. After the ceremony, guests will enjoy strolling the garden paths, feeding the friendly koi fish and viewing the garden’s extensive bonsai collection. Receptions at the garden are elegant and carefree. The attentive staff take care of every detail so the bride and groom can relax and enjoy their special day. Weddings may be scheduled at various times and sunset weddings followed by an evening reception are a popular option. As evening falls dramatic lighting transforms the garden into a scene from a fairytale. In addition to wedding events, the Japanese Garden may be reserved for rehearsal dinners, afternoon teas, business receptions, dinner for two and dinner parties. On-site coordination services make it simple to plan a memorable event for up to 160 guests. For more information regarding the use of the Japanese Garden for private events, please call the Garden office at 562/985-8889 or visit our web site: www.csulb.edu/~jgarden. Read less

The staff we dealt with at the Earl Burns Japanese Garden were both super friendly and professional. If we ever had any questions they were answered very quickly.

As we live in Ireland it made it quite hard for us to organise and plan our day however they made our day so much easier and pain free.

For any couples looking for a venue which can cater for both large and small weddings (ours being 15 people total) with a very unique feel, the Earl Burns Japanese Garden is a perfect fit.

Words cannot describe how wonderful our wedding turned out at the the Japanese Gardens. Everything came out fabulous! The Japanese Gardens is a beautiful venue, with its lush landscaping, pretty waterfall, spectacular koi pond - a fairytale place for a wedding. And the staff at the JG is stellar too - everyone was so nice, professional and helpful. Whenever I had a question, they were quick to respond, always got back to my emails right away. On the day of our wedding, I didn't have to worry about a thing - they took care of everything, and it was so well gone. All of our guests were so impressed with the JG, everyone has told us how beautiful our wedding was. For everything that was included in our wedding, the JG is definitely worth 10 times the value. Thank you to everyone at the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Gardens - you made my wedding perfect.

This place is BEAUTIFUL. No questions about it. Everyone loved the place and once there everything is peaceful. The staff was very nice and explained everything. The only thing that I was not too thrilled with was the fact that the garden is schedule back to back. My vendors only had 30 minutes to set up. When I got there there was another wedding going on and after my wedding there was another wedding schedule so we had to hurry out of the garden as fast as possible

This was the most beautiful location to have a wedding. The gardens not only were meticulous, but the staff was very friendly and helpful. I had a huge list of items I wanted placed for my event, and the Gardesn took care of everything perfectly. I didn't have a single worry and everyone talked about how lovely and memorable my wedding was.

We had our wedding here, and this place by far was one of the nicest place I've ever seen. If you live around here, pick this place. I love it so much, and prices are good.

Pro's-
The venue is beautiful & made for awesome pictures!
The staff is super helpful.
Price is reasonable- there aren't many excess fees.
You're walking on the other side of the koi pond so if you're shy/nervous in front of people, you feel less pressure! (This could also be a con, I suppose.)
They put out umbrellas to help shield the sun.

Con's-
As a previous poster said, back to back weddings make you feel rushed.
My officiant's microphone was not correctly positioned so it was hard to hear us.

Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden is a very pretty place to have a wedding there. It is outdoor only so you are kind of at the mercy of the weather. But it is California, so not much problems there. Its wedding hour is pretty restrictive because of public hour. Initially I was going to have my rehearsal on Friday 4/13/12, but we had thunderstorm. My coordinator Judith was nice enough to postpone it to Saturday. (My wedding was on Sunday). Overall the coordinator is very professional and friendly. We kept changed the order of the procession and she did not have any problems with it. She is very patient. We were late for almost 1 and half hour for our first meeting due to the terrible LA traffic. Judith waited for us and when we met she still had a big smile on her face. Thanks, Judith. The garden is not large enough to hold a wedding with more than 230 guests though. But if you have a small wedding, then this is a perfect place. When I interviewed many photographers, every photogapher says it is a very pretty place.

The instructions say I'm supposed to provide comments and feedback for future brides, but I'm a groom. Sorry ladies, this ones from a guys point of view.

Grooms and brides, you can't bring your own kegs (which I understand why, but it still sucks) and they don't allow hard alcohol. Your choice in caterers is also very limited with only 2 different caterers and are both a little pricey...but I will admit worth the money. Other than that, the upfront consultations were more of a timeline breakdown and you go over what you're going to do at your wedding (you better have ideas upfront). We were given an hour with out "consultant" who really didn't offer many suggestions, but with the help of our DJ we were able to muddle through the details.

However, our coordinator for the rehearsal dinner and wedding day was AWESOME! She made sure everyone was on cue and on time. Also, the venue is absolutely breath taking (yes, this is still the groom talking), I was completely blown away by how beautiful everything looked and our wedding day coordinator was on it!

I would have loved to give them 5 stars on everything, but the initial consultations didn't really help us any and honestly at one of them I walked away more confused than focused. Also, their lack of flexibility does hurt them a bit because I couldn't have my Biergarten and aside from there list of approved vendors for catering, you don't really get to choose. The beauty of the location, the responsiveness of the staff, and the quality of staff make up for it. We had an awesome wedding and all of our guests were blown away.
