What happens at a Dunn Micro Wedding?
The bride and groom may marry in a garden location of their choice throughout all 7.5 acres. Additionally, the wedding party is invited to share a “bubbly” toast provided by Dunn Gardens before heading out to celebrate further.
Why choose Dunn Gardens?
We offer an idyllic setting with the flexibility to really make the space unique to every bride and groom on their special day. These tranquil gardens make a picturesque setting to create beautiful memories.
Is Parking Available?
There is very limited parking space. We recommend all wedding couples have their guests use Lyft & Uber or other alternative forms of transportation.
May I have music?
Amplified music is not permitted on the Tennis Green or the use of microphones. Amplified music may be permitted in certain areas of the garden with Dunn Gardens approval. Amplified music includes DJ's and bands that require bass and speakers to perform. Non-amplified music includes string and wind instruments. Quiet hours begin every evening promptly at 9pm. All music and events must end at this time.
