Wedding and Event Information

We are now accepting reservations for Weddings & Events

Garden Valley Ranch is a unique rose garden, home to thousands of field grown rose bushes cultivated for the sale of their blossoms to both individual cut rose lovers as well as the floral trade.  These garden roses are more fragrant than their greenhouse grown counterparts.  Plan your Sonoma Wine Country outdoor rose garden wedding or event at Garden Valley Ranch by contacting us at 707-795-0919 or Email our resident floral designer Fallon at fallon@gardenvalley.com.

Garden Valley Ranch features an outdoor wedding site next to row upon row of many varieties of beautiful garden roses, which are in full bloom May through October.  A Victorian Belvedere sets the stage for the ceremony.  A brick dancefloor set into a lucious lawn fans out from the Belvedere and is adjacent to a formal-style garden devoted to fragrant plants.  The bride's dressing room is closely nestled against hydrangeas with a direct view of the rows of roses and is just a few steps away from the ceremony site.  A fully equiped catering kitchen is just behind the altar.  We also feature a wonderful pond with koi and a 200-foot flower border.

Garden Valley Ranch is located just north of historic downtown Petaluma, a town known for its Victorian architecture, restaurants and antiquing.  Our perfect location is close to many wineries in Sonoma County and is less than an hour drive to the Napa wine country, the stunning Sonoma coastline and San Francisco, with easy access to the airports of San Francisco, Oakland and Santa Rosa.  The fragrant garden roses make this a beautiful, graceful and timeless venue for outdoor weddings and celebrations.
