Weddings in the Garden

When your relationship is ready to bloom, there is no better place to celebrate than Green Bay Botanical Garden. The Garden is the most beautiful venue in northeastern Wisconsin and a wedding here will be one your guests are sure to remember for years to come. The Garden’s 47 acres of display gardens and natural areas capture the beauty of northeastern Wisconsin’s continually changing seasons. Explore the array of versatile settings, each unique in its atmosphere.

Kress Oval Garden

Kress Oval Garden is a contemporary rose garden that is the definition of beauty and the most popular ceremony site at the Garden. This garden is enveloped with vibrant perennials and a lush green lawn surrounded by two brilliant white arbors, a peaceful water fountain and the Stumpf Belvedere -- an exquisite Grecian Gazebo. Peak bloom is June through August. However, this garden is stunning May through October.

Capacity: Approximately 150 seated. Kress Oval Garden can be tented.

Woodland Garden

This intimate garden has a naturalized style which contrasts beautifully with the more formal gardens that overlook it. Native trees, shrubs and wildflowers surround a bluegrass lawn that is the perfect atmosphere for a timeless wedding ceremony. Peak bloom is early May, but Woodland Garden flourishes May through October.

Capacity: Approximately 150 seated. Woodland Garden can be tented.

Jenquine Pavilion & Overlook Garden

Perched at the highest point in the Garden, the Jenquine Pavilion & Overlook Garden is a delightful choice for a ceremony. To reach the site, guests will stroll through the beautiful King Shade Garden featuring a springhouse ruin and a tranquil stream. The Pavilion is made of salvaged barn timbers and is situated atop a hill with a breathtaking view of the Garden. The Overlook Garden is shaded by stately mature trees and features native plantings including many new cultivars of coneflowers, false indigos and grasses that complement the rustic structures. Peak bloom for the Overlook Garden is June through August, but it is beautiful May through October.

Capacity: Approximately 100 seated. The Jenquine Pavilion & Overlook Garden can be tented.

Kaftan Lusthaus

Kaftan Lusthaus is an exquisite three-season gazebo with a Scandinavian design. It features an elegant entrance, impressive hand-painted rosemaling and charming chandeliers. Kaftan Lusthaus is surrounded by the beauty of the formal gardens.

Capacity: Approximately 50 seated.

Stumpf Belvedere

The Stumpf Belvedere is an illustration of an early Grecian Gazebo. The stars, clouds, and moon engraved into its crown capture the poetry of the view as much as the quote from Wisconsin Poet Laureate, Ellen Kort - "Circle the light...talk to stars...bless the seasons...let peace bloom like a rose...like the small sure lift of wings." This gorgeous structure enhances the spectacular view overlooking the Garden.

Capacity: Maximum of 10 standing.

Cornerstone Foundation Hall

The Garden has the ability to accommodate elegant indoor receptions. Envision filling the Cornerstone Foundation Hall with family and friends for a lavish reception. The space features stunning high-ceilings with organic tones that complement exposed wood beams, large windows overlooking the Garden, and a rich colored floor. The hall will accommodate 212 guests for exquisite receptions situated within the Garden’s timeless natural setting. Guests may spill out into the adjacent K.C. Stock Foundation lobby or onto the L.G. Wood Foundation deck as music and laughter waft throughout the Garden.

Capacity: Maximum of 212 seated. Read less

We had both our ceremony and our reception at the Gardens and could not have asked for a more perfect day. Both Amber and Hailey, the Garden staff that worked with us from the first inquiring phone call right through the end of the evening were amazing. They were always flexible and willing to answer our questions, to offer advice or suggestions, to share their experience and ideas with us, and they never once made me feel like "bridezilla" or a nasty, pesty, demanding lady..... They worked directly with www.Superiorsoundent.com, our entertainment and wedding officiate, to facilitate their set up and answer any questions they had. They communicated with Biebel's Catering and Rental, our food and bar service provider for the evening, as well as providing the season access pass to Lance Photography, so they could enter the Garden at any time in preparation for the event. Greg and I had our first date in the winter of 2011 at the annual Garden of Lights display, and there is no other place we even considered for our special day. The Gardens themselves provide the most beautiful backdrop you could ever imagine for a wedding, but add in the assistance and expertise of the staff and expect nothing less than perfect. Thank you Green Bay Botanical Gardens for being our first memory created as Mr. and Mrs Gregory Davis Jr. This one will be hard to top!

I loved getting married at GBBG. The setting was gorgeous for both the ceremony and photos, and my guests loved exploring the gardens. The biggest thing that bothered me about my experience is that they really cram in the weddings. It was a Sunday and I was still the second of three back-to-back weddings. We weren't able to get into the bridal dressing room until the previous party cleared out, and then we had to really rush and everyone had to haul their stuff out to the cars before we walked up the aisle. It was absolute mayhem, and with as much as we paid, it would have been nice to not have such stressful conditions before one of the most important moments of my life.

Green Bay Botanical Garden responded with the following comments:

Hello Katie,
We sincerely apologize for any additional stress the day of your wedding! Although we do have many ceremony sites, we do only have one dressing area which can be in very high demand. As a non-profit our resources are limited as far as being able to add an additional space, but we'll certainly look into ways to improve our services in the future and hope the rest of your wedding day was spectacular!

The Green Bay Botanical Gardens were a dream come true. We had a destination wedding in Green Bay and chose the gardens for our ceremony space. It was the most magical, surreal experience I have ever had. Our guests and family raved about the beauty of the gardens. It literally felt like we stepped into a fairy-tale. We had our ceremony in the Woodland Garden site. It is the most secluded of the gardens and was perfect for our 100 person wedding. We were able to have our live musicians play and DJ set up. They were very helpful with all of our requests.

The Green Bay Botanical Garden is absolutely beautiful! We had our reception indoors in the Cornerstone Foundation Hall and the view of the gardens was great. We wanted an indoor venue, just in case it rained, and we are so happy with our decision to have our reception at the Green Bay Botanical Garden! They were great to work with and we would definitely recommend having your wedding reception at this venue!

The Green Bay Botanical Gardens is absolutely beautiful as a ceremony and reception space. I was extremely satisfied with the end result. The process of planning our wedding day with the Lead Coordinator Amber Crisp was quite easy and straightforward. However, on our actually wedding weekend we were forced to work with alternative "weekend girls" on staff. The young girls who were present for our rehearsal and actual wedding day were unaware of the detailed plans we had previously discussed with Amber. They seemed unknowledgable as to how things should go, were a little pushy, and frankly unprofessional.

This review is for wedding CEREMONY ONLY.

I want to give major accolades to the team at GBBG. My wife and I were married there on July 10th and although things could have been quite problematic because of the weather, the people working there went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure everything went off without a hitch.

Amber A., who had just taken a position there, stepped in and was on top of everything as far as planning and coordination. When it started to rain at the ceremony, Chrissy made a golf cart available so people wouldn't have to walk up the hill in the Woodland Garden.

They were responsive and easy to work with and I really have no complaints. Tremendous value...tremendous service and a really nice place to have a wedding. Even if it rains. :)

(PS- They do rent tents for rain if you want but the one negative is that it must be ordered several days in advance when the weather would be generally unknown.) We went without the tent and were happy with that decision despite some rain.

We loved our wedding ceremony! The wedding coordinator was responsive and easy to get along with. On our day of rehearsal, she was present and willing to accomodate. She listened to our requests and followed through with them. The wedding ceremony went smoothly without any problems. The only disadvatage I had about them is that they started taking apart the tent while we were taking pictures so we felt like were in the way. Otherwise, it was great!
