“It was love at first sight when I went to Ruth Bancroft. The garden is beautiful and unique, with wonderful scenery and natural beauty that it needs little decor. I could have the California boho wedding of my dreams without trekking to the mountains or desert! I loved that the garden allows you freedom to choose your vendors unlike a winery or typical event space.”

‘As they set out on their wedding planning adventure, the overall design was a focus for this artful couple. “One of the most important aspects of our wedding was the setting,” Maggie shares. “We both love plants and flowers, so we started with inspiration from our venue, Ruth Bancroft Garden, which already had beautiful, natural colors, plants, hidden corners and more. We wanted our colors to add pop to the muted tones of the garden, and it all built out from there!” With the natural textures and tones shining as an idyllic backdrop, Maggie and Mario elected to decorate their space minimally.’theknot.com

“Ruth Bancroft is simply stunning – full of photogenic greenery and winding paths that make for a magical setting and great photo ops. The venue also allowed us to use different areas around the garden of our choosing to hold our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.”

“Getting married at the Ruth Bancroft Garden was a dream come true!! Not only is the setting itself absolutely gorgeous, but the staff was incredible! They were always responsive to our questions and very supportive with our requests. Every meeting with them felt productive, and when it came to the actual wedding day everything came together and unfolded just as we had hoped it would!! We can’t thank the staff enough for all their help and encouragement. It was the most incredible day and we are so grateful to everyone at the Ruth Brancroft Garden for all their amazing work!”
