Micro Wedding at Dunn Gardens

What is a micro wedding?: You don’t want to elope exactly but you don’t want a big fuss either; just family and a few close friends to celebrate the tying of your knot.

How many people make up a micro wedding? Twenty or fewer. Includes the wedding party, officiant and guests. 

What happens at a Dunn micro wedding? The bride and groom marry in a garden location of their choice, and are invited to share a “bubbly” toast provided by Dunn Gardens before heading out to celebrate further.

Why would you choose Dunn Gardens?: Privacy, personalized service, and your choice of location for the ceremony that provides a variety of scenic and natural opportunities for photographs.

Is Parking Available?: A small parking lot is available on site for the bride and groom, their parents and anyone with disabilities. Convenient street parking is also available.

May I have music? Feel free to bring in a single musician (or two) who will add atmosphere to the occasion but no amplified music is permitted.

What is the fee and what does it cover?: The fee covers the use of the garden for 2 hours, toilet facilities, a gracious set up for the after ceremony toast on the lawn, seating as needed, a Dunn Gardens family membership valued at $100, and opportunity for photographs in a spectacular setting. Dunn Gardens does not provide food but the party is permitted to bring in finger food by prior arrangement. No set up facilities are available for the wedding party.
