Japanese Garden Weddings

To reserve a date and space in the Japanese Garden, a signed contract and the full rental fee is required. Contact Teal Delli Gatti, 817-392-5548 or fwbs3@aol.com

Small weddings (25 people or less) may be held at the Hill Arbor, Waterfall Overlook, Mikoshi Deck or Lake Arbor for $450.00 for two hours. This rate does NOT apply to weddings in the Pavilion or on the Moon Viewing Deck.

Hill Arbor – This elevated area overlooks Moon Bridge and the Upper and Middle Pools. The Japanese inspired shelter gives a sense of enclosure while being outdoors.

Waterfall Overlook – Perched above the upper pond, this location has a view of the pond's small island in the foreground and our largest waterfall in the background. A beautiful spot for your wedding photos.

Mikoshi Deck - Built in 2013, this deck is located next to the Mikoshi House, where it overlooks the upper pond and has a gorgeous view of our largest waterfall.

Lake Arbor - Being our smallest venue, the Lake Arbor is perfect for intimate wedding ceremonies with a view of the beautiful Japanese Maple Trees.

Weddings and receptions may also be held in the Japanese Garden Pavilion or on the Moon Viewing Deck.
