I've been going to the LA Arboretum since I was a child, and it was so special for me to have our wedding and reception there. Lucky for me, the Arboretum is also one of the most cost effective places to get married in LA County. The staff was very professional, and always answered promptly by phone. The Rose Garden was a gorgeous location for the ceremony. We had a flyover of two geese during our vows that everyone talked about afterwards. We loved having so many options for beautiful backgrounds for photos, especially the grand old oak trees. The Peacock Cafe was incredibly accommodating, allowing us to use the existing tables, chairs, and lighting, and to save on renting a dance floor by using the interior of the cafe. The photos of The Peacock Cafe at dusk are stunning, too. One of the best parts about getting married at the Arboretum is that we can go back whenever we like. I'm looking forward to bringing our children there one day, too.

The sites at the Arboretum speak for themselves. All were equally breathtaking making it difficult to choose one. Planning and working with the coordinator Veda was easy and straightforward. The vendors they recommended were equally accommodating and professional. It was a wonderful experience and made our event so special in so many ways. We will be back to visit the gardens as guests for years to come.

My fiance and I were not very pleased with the Arboretum. There are many hidden fees, restrictions, and rules that made planning our wedding and staying within our budget difficult. The cost for use of the location ended up being quite a bit higher ($700 more) than what is originally listed on their website. On top of this we had to get liability insurance for an extra $150. We decided not to have our reception here because of costs such as lighting generator, security, extra staffing, etc. Also, the response time of the wedding coordinator is very slow. Sometimes I would go several days or a week without a response to an important email or phone call. If we would have known beforehand we would have gone elsewhere. Their organization and timing was also a nightmare, and the coordinator would often forget that we scheduled a meeting, and even forgot we had scheduled our rehearsal. They had someone else scheduled at that time and we had to wait for them to finish up. The only positive is the location is beautiful and we could not have found a more visually perfect location for us.

We had our wedding at The Rose Garden. It was beautiful. Weather was perfect. Our florist did a wonderful job in decorating the garden. I loved the fact that they shuttled our guests in with golf carts. It was a bit rushed though since we only have a certain amount of time to set up and take pictures. We also had to clean everything ourselves, which was a bit of a hassle. But in the end it was worth it for our perfect wedding. The staff was very professional and helped out as much as they can. Overall, I would recommend this venue because it is very beautiful. A bit pricey, I think, but well worth it in the end. I just wished we had more time to hang out at the garden to take pictures afterwards. We did walk around the entire park to take pictures and it was absolutely beautiful. Totally worth the price just to get some beautiful pictures afterwards!

Our wedding was very much a "secret garden" experience. We had both our ceremony and reception in the Rose Garden. It was idyllic. We appreciated how professional and helpful all of the arboretum staff was. Veda, the event coordinator at the arboretum, went out of her way to help us get our wedding together.

This venue is beautiful. I had my wedding on the meadow across from the waterfall, and held my reception on the patio of the Peacock Cafe. It was so nice to have both at the same place, and everyone still comments on how lovely it all turned out.
