Embracing a rolling hillside in Walnut Creek’s Ygnacio Valley, The Gardens at Heather Farm resides on six acres of natural garden landscape with sweeping views of majestic Mt. Diablo and the fountains of our neighboring park’s lagoon. Bride and groom exchange vows beneath the climbing roses and slate-tiled roof of our Gazebo, surrounded by thousands more blooming roses in the Cowden Rose Garden.

Following the ceremony, guests will enjoy strolling through the gardens on their way to the Patio and Pavilion, an ideal spot for a pre-dinner gathering or cocktail hour. Bordered by a raised sensory garden, this large, terraced area features a caterer-friendly pavilion bar with granite counter, sink and electrical outlets – perfect for serving appetizers and drinks.

Receptions are held in the stately Camellia Room, a bright and airy banquet space, with high-beamed ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows bathing the room in sunlight. Thanks to neutral walls and classic hardwood floors, this elegant room is easy to decorate with additional lights, draperies, lanterns or flowers. Adjacent to the main hall, there is a caterer's warming kitchen and a spacious wrap-around deck that gives guests access to the outdoors to explore.

The nearby Meadow Lawn, with its expansive grass area and decorative gate, is also available for outdoor receptions.

Our rentals team can customize wedding packages to fit a variety of needs and budgets.

We looking forward to hosting you on your special day! For more information or to book your wedding, call us at (925) 947-1678. Last-minute dates still available for summer and fall of 2015 -- call now! Read less

The Garden was beautiful! The venue was amazingly convenient in that the ceremony took place right outside the area we were holding the reception. People could walk the grounds while we got beautiful pictures taken. Best part is that we didn't have a need to pay for flowers since it was such a well maintained garden and in bloom in October!

We searched high and low for our perfect venue and we found it at Heather Farms. If you are looking here and have a date in mind during the wedding season, GO EARLY! We were there a year out and got the very last Saturday in October, and we almost missed it!! The staff were very responsive and accommodating, they allowed us to visit and scout the place out many times after booking, and were always on top of responding to my questions. The venue is beautiful and the gazebo is an excellent place for the ceremony. There is a rain option to move the ceremony into the reception hall at no cost (very important for someone looking in October/November). There was potential for rain on our day, but Kelly didn't stress me out about it by waiting to call until the day before to ask how we wanted to proceed. Luckily, we had no rain and were able to enjoy all of the beautiful expanse of the gardens.

We loved our venue. We had our ceremony at the garden gazebo area and reception a short walk away. Tons of greenery and beautiful flowers. Our guest constantly complimented our wedding venue. We wanted a venue where our guest didn't have to drive around. The Marriott Hotel gave free shuttle rides to and from the venue to the hotel for our guest. This was important since we had an open bar. No complaints :)

My November wedding was beautiful and amazing. After looking at several outdoor venues and being displeased with the sites my husband and I knew this was the place for us the second we parked the car. Its so romantic and fun and gorgeous. Our wedding guests were so impressed with this venue. The staff are very professional and accomidating. If you are looking for an amazing venue then this would be it.

I got married here on May 3 2015. It was absolutely the perfect venue for us: gorgeous, affordable, great amenities, and they were fine with my dog being in the ceremony. We really lucked out in the timing of our wedding; it was a beautiful sunny day and all the flowers were just amazing....even the roses on the gazebo were in full bloom. That said, we visited the venue at several times of year while planning our wedding and it was always gorgeous, so even if you can't do spring it would still be a great venue. We had our ceremony at the gazebo, our cocktail hour at the pavilion, and our reception in the Camellia room. The Camellia room is set up with absolutely everything you could ever need for a wedding reception (yes the reception chairs are not exactly gorgeous, but we didn't care about that--the ceremony chairs were very nice, though). In addition to the gorgeous setting and fabulous facilities, the people that work in the office there are amazing. I would e-mail them with the most inane and random questions and they always got back to me immediately and they were always super friendly and professional. They do have a list that you have to choose from for caterers, but we didn't find that to be a negative, that means your caterer (we chose Elegant Occasions, highly recommended) will be familiar with the venue which is a great bonus. I highly recommend this venue, I can't think of a single negative thing to say!

I loved this venue! The ceremony needed no extra flowers because it was gorgeous all on its own! We walked through a rose garden into a gazebo. It was perfect. The cocktail area was shaded and had a big bar area. The reception area had gorgeous windows and high ceilings. It easily fit our 109 guests and had enough dance floor space for EVERYONE to dance! It was a perfect place to get married :)

Choosing a wedding venue is the first and one of the hardest things to do when you start planning a wedding. After viewing a few other venues within similar price ranges, we checked out the Gardens at Heather Farms as it is near where both my husband and I grew up. We signed up for a tour that was very informative! They do have some rules (as any venue will have) like no throwing rice and choosing a caterer off a preferred vendor list. But, the beauty of the garden and reception hall completely make you forget about that! We were able to plan and have the wedding of our dreams!! I had an easy time working with the staff and when I lost my wedding bag, they opened their arms and hearts to me and helped look everywhere for it. I would definitely recommend using this facility for a wedding or any large event!!
