A Dream Garden Wedding

Van Dusen holds a special place in our hearts, as my husband's grandfather has a poetry rock in the Korean pavilion. The garden is so magical and beautiful on it's own, that we didn't have to bring in ... Read more a ton of decor. We held our ceremony in The Great Lawn, and hosted our reception inside the hall. The Great Lawn was perfect, set against the west cost mountains, and tucked away into a quiet spot away from the garden foot-traffic -- it was everything we wanted and more. The team at VanDusen had great insight, having done so many weddings and events in the past. This is definitely a space for an outdoor garden wedding!

The Perfect Wedding

My husband and I had our wedding at Van Dusen Garden in Sept 2018. We had an outdoor wedding at the Great Lawn. The Lawn was nothing short of amazing. As the Lawn is VERY large, we had no issues ... Read more fitting out guest count of 450 people. We were having some issues with the weather the week of the wedding (it was predicted there was a 90% chance of rain) and the Van Dusen team was incredibly helpful and made it so easy for my husband and I to enjoy our wedding week instead of stressing about the weather. They made sure that the lawn was set up the best way possible to ensure that our guests would still enjoy the gardens (even with the rain). The day ended up being a beautiful Fall day and everything was absolutely perfect. I would 100% recommend Van Dusen and the Team for a wedding or event!

Pretty gardens

We used the BMO great Hall and Peggy Gunn Woodland halls for our wedding ceremony. Initially we were concerned that the space would be warm but being a green building, the ventilation was just fine ... Read more and guests were happy. Guests enjoyed the beautiful gardens right outside after the ceremony.
