Decor for your Ceremony
Although nature provides the most striking décor at the Devonian Botanic Garden, we also have items for rent to make your ceremony even more special. Archways and flower urns are available. Prices include setup and takedown by staff. Since items are stored on-site, there are no pick-up or delivery charges. Two arch styles to choose from: a Roman or White Garden arch. Arch rental: $150, Flower urns $50/pair. Not available for Kurimoto Japanese Garden.
You may also choose to bring decorative items of your own. All décor items must be approved in advance by the Wedding & Special Event Coordinator.
Live Music for your Ceremony
The beauty of the concert harp goes hand in hand with the remarkable setting of the Devonian Botanic Garden. We can arrange for live music at your wedding, provided by renowned musician Terry McDade. You can customize your musical offerings by adding extra musicians or vocalists. Or, you may prefer to bring your own musicians. Because of the special outdoor nature of our facility, be sure to consult with the Wedding & Special Event Coordinator prior to making arrangements.
2013 Bookings with Terry McDade start at $445
A convenient portable PA system to amplify music from your iPod or CD player. Comes with wireless lapel or hand-held mic. $50+tax. Call for details.

Getting Ready at the Ozawa Pavilion
If you would like a beautiful, serene spot to prepare for your wedding, or to freshen up before your photographs, the Ozawa Pavilion can be booked on your wedding day (subject to availability).
