From rehearsal to reception, a Garden Grove wedding is a magical event. The scent of cedar and pine needles underfoot, a tendril of smoke from a bonfire, hearty food prepared by a local caterer, and joyous sounds of celebration all make for an enchanted wedding in our private forested grounds.
The best way to make your enchanted forest wedding an amazing destination event is to rent the entirety of Garden Grove Retreat & Lodging for one to two nights. Spend a day on set-up and decorating, then host the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner on-site. Perhaps burgers and brats on the grill and a yummy pasta salad from Garden Mini Mart. Get around in the Garden Grove transport.
Then relax around the bonfire the night before the big day. Tell stories about how you met and what you'll do next. Enjoy friends and family around the campfire ring.
Then it's up early in the Garden Grove Apartment where the bride and her maids start getting ready. Local hair and makeup professionals add their finishing touches before they put on their gowns and head to the ceremony site.
The ladies get a ride to the ceremony site in the six-seater golf cart and then make a grand entrance through a shimmering curtain and walk down the aisle lined with ivy toward the stone backdrop of Mary's Grove. An arbor draped with roses makes a picture-perfect setting.
Set up for background music, such as a keyboard, guitar, or vocals.
