The Marin Art & Garden Center offers a picturesque backdrop for weddings both indoors and outside in the 11 acres of gardens. We have two well appointed indoor facilities for your recepetion.

The Livermore Pavilion which is ideal for weddings and special occasions, The Livermore Pavilion is spacious and airy with a wall of sliding glass doors that open out onto the Livermore Deck and Stratford Gardens. Inside accommodates up to 250 people, outside 350 people. Two gas-fired rustic stone fireplaces heighten the ambiance - one inside and the other on the deck. Clear sheets may be extended to enclose the outdoor deck in case of rain or chill, and hanging heaters further warm the area. A separate bride's dressing room, sound system, AV screens and commercial kitchen facilities are available as well.

The Garden Room has a beautifully appointed interior, lovely landscaped front and rear Garden Patio area, a brightening skylight, separate Bride's Room, outdoor built-in bar, and a fully equipped commercial kitchen. The Garden Room is elegant but maintains a relaxed atmosphere with French doors, a gas fireplace, Patio fountain, recessed lighting and lush garden setting. It's air-conditioned for the warmer months and centrally heated for the colder months. The Garden Room can accommodate up to 80 guests seated indoors and up to 120 guests if utilizing the outdoor patio as well. The Garden Room opens out to an expansive garden patio enclosed in ivy covered walls. Numerous flowers and flourishing shrubs surround the patio, heightening the natural garden feel. There is also an enclosed and similarly adorned rear garden patio, included with the rental of the Garden Room.

Once you choose your reception venue you may then choose from our several other breathtaking outdoor locations to hold your ceremony.

we had our wedding here Memorial Day weekend and can't say enough about the venue and the staff. We worked primarily with Stacey and she is a pleasure to work with. Really easy going, supportive throughout the process, and was responsive to all our emails! She was awesome the day of our wedding and helped take care of all the small details.

The venue was perfect for what we wanted - outdoors, spacious, and family friendly. We ended up buying out the entire space which allowed us to get ready in the garden room. You can rent one of two spaces - the garden room or the lawn pavilion if you don't do a buy out. We did our ceremony at the gazebo. Rental also included the chairs and tables among other things. They'll provide this information. We couldn't be happier with how well kept the grounds are.

Another note is that the space is wonderful if you're looking for a family/kid friendly venue. We had at least 30 kids under 6 at the wedding. The venue provided a lot of space for the kids to play. Would absolutely recommend this space!

lastly, the center is a non-profit so the rental fees supports the programs and upkeep of the space! This was a huge plus for us!

We had our wedding at the Marin Art & Garden Center and had an overall positive experience. They were very responsive, patient, and easy to work with. We had a beautiful wedding and all our guests commented on how lovely it was. They ask that you use vendors from their preferred list (those with experience at MAGC) however we decided to use our own florist, a family friend. The only drawback was that we could only start setting up 2 1/2 hours prior to the event time. It would have been nice to be able to set up from 9am onward, etc. though I'm not sure if this is due to staff availability/budget reasons.

Overall, beautiful venue and nice staff!

The Marin Art and Garden Center (MAGC) was a magical place to get married. The reception was in nature, while being convenient. The space is just beautiful and I cannot wait to see my pictures. Anna was a pleasure to work with and just so supportive! The day of the wedding, the team worked together to make everything run smoothly!

Marin Art & Garden Center is such a gorgeous setting, you really can't go wrong with them. They seem to have the perfect venue for any sized wedding/reception. They do have some rules regarding decorations, but you don't really need them as much as other venues because of the lovely grounds. I think it was very reasonably priced for what it is. They do have a preferred caterers list, but the caterer we used on there rocked.

They book up quickly. We visited them the same month we got engaged and we still didn't get our preferred date for a YEAR out! So if you like it, do it!
