The Marin Art & Garden Center offers a picturesque backdrop for weddings both indoors and outside in the 11 acres of gardens.


We have two well appointed indoor facilities for your reception:  The Livermore Pavilion, ideal for weddings and special occasions, is spacious and airy with a wall of sliding glass doors that open out onto the Livermore deck and Stratford Gardens. The inside accommodates up to 250 people, outside 350 people. Two gas-fired rustic stone fireplaces heighten the ambiance - one inside and the other on the deck. Clear sheets may be extended to enclose the outdoor deck in case of rain or chill, and hanging heaters further warm the area. A separate bride's dressing room, sound system, AV screens and commercial kitchen facilities are available as well. The Garden Room has a beautifully appointed interior, lovely landscaped front and rear Garden Patio area, a brightening skylight, separate Bride's Room, outdoor built-in bar, and a fully equipped commercial kitchen. The Garden Room is elegant but maintains a relaxed atmosphere with French doors, a gas fireplace, recessed lighting and lush garden setting. It's air-conditioned for the warmer months and centrally heated for the colder months. The Garden Room can accommodate up to 80 guests seated indoors and up to 120 guests if utilizing the outdoor patio as well. The Garden Room opens out to an expansive garden patio enclosed in ivy covered walls. Numerous flowers and flourishing shrubs surround the patio, heightening the natural garden feel. There is also an enclosed and similarly adorned rear garden patio, included with the rental of the Garden Room.

Once you choose your reception venue you may then choose from our several other breathtaking outdoor locations to hold your ceremony. The Stratford Garden,Gazebo Lawn and Fountain Pond are the most popular ceremony sites. We also offer a buyout of the grounds.

All weddings booked include a day-of house manager to tend to any facilities' needs, plus use of our well stocked event equipment.
