Beloved by brides, the Garden’s Stephen T. Mather Redwood Grove provides an enchanting setting for weddings. Coast redwoods, (Sequoia sempervirens), planted in the 1930s, tower above a lush forest floor of companion native California plantings.

The centerpiece of the Grove is the intimate Townsend Amphitheater, the setting for fantasy forest weddings. The bridal party walks under the towering redwood canopy to meet the gathered guests at the amphitheater and solemnize their union in this magnificent cathedral of redwoods.


Capacity is 200 guests.
