Situated high on the east slope of the Garden with dramatic views of the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge, the Garden of Old Roses is a storybook ceremony venue. Glorious rose cultivars from the 19th and early 20th centuries, and modern roses, are under-planted with many complementary flowering annuals and perennials.

Arrive at the site under a canopy of seasonal roses cascading over the beams of a quaint wooden pergola. Rough-hewn steps climb up a terraced knoll, resplendent with a mix of lavender, dahlias, and antique roses. The steps arrive at a terrace where family and friends gather for intimate wedding nuptials in an unforgettable rose bower.
