We are so much more than just a children's garden!
Facilities rental, along with classes for children and adults, memberships, tours, special events, meetings, weddings and a gift shop, are some of the ways the garden and museum will remain self-sustaining.
Look for a small garden cafe in the future!
The Carriage House
We are pleased you will be considering The Children's Storybook Garden as your wedding ceremony site. Whether you are planning an outdoor or winter wedding, we will have a site to fit your needs. The Children's Garden will provide a breathtaking setting for your ceremony and receiving line.
There will be up to three time frames to choose from for your ceremony on Tuesdays through Saturdays, or Sunday mornings or early evenings. No matter which time is selected, your wedding will always be the only wedding happening at the Garden during that time, though other types of events may also be scheduled in other parts of the garden and museum.
The Carriage House will feature lovely leaded glass windows, beautiful hardwood floor and feature Victorian decor. It will be awash in natural light coming from its many hand crafted wooden windows. Indoor weddings in our beautiful Carriage House will be available year-round once it is completed. Our selected caterers will be looking forward to discussing your wedding menu.
