The Elizabeth Gamble Gardens sits on two and a half acres about forty miles outside San Francisco, in the university town of Palo Alto, offering a wedding venue that will take you back decades, if not centuries. The gardens are operated by a nonprofit horticultural foundation that is volunteer-driven. If your event will have fewer than 100 guests, and you want the ambiance of a garden, then the Elizabeth Gamble Gardens could be an ideal choice.
There are several structures throughout the property that would help you entertain guests, including the Carriage House and the Tea House. The demonstration and formal gardens also stand ready as potential staging areas. The foundation also offers classes in horticulture when events are not taking place.
The main house has three main areas: the library, the dining room and the living room, and can hold as many as fifty guests all by itself. Extra guests can move to the Carriage House, which has a patio and complete kitchen. The Tea House is ideal for smaller groups. All of the staging areas have Victorian décor, and despite the fact that volunteers are in charge of all areas of operation, the grounds, buildings and furnishings all stay in tip-top condition.
