Weddings at Leu Gardens

Call us for prices & availability

Overview

Welcome to the beautiful Leu Gardens, a 50-acre botanical oasis flourishing with gorgeous blossoms and luscious Floridian greenery. By far our most popular wedding location, this venue is incredibly romantic, intimate and breath-taking.

Weddings here are simple, classic and elegant. Your ceremony will be set in a stunning white wedding gazebo nestled into the stunning island flora; following your blissful ceremony, take a stroll with your personal photographer to capture some incredibly picturesque pictures around the property, from the gazebos, rose gardens, fountains and more.

Our Classic Wedding entails a personal wedding coordinator for the day, as well as one hour of professional photography. If you choose to celebrate with our Premier Wedding, you’ll be treated to a bunch of fresh roses, a luxury white stretch limo, professional hair & makeup services for the bride, wedding cake, non-alcoholic wine to toast and more.

Ceremony will take place in the Courtyard/Home Demonstration Garden Gazebo.  Up to 25 guests can attend a wedding at Leu Gardens. If you go over this number of guests, there will be a further charge for a bigger area with seating.  Leu Gardens only allows bio-degradable confetti or bubbles. Chairs are not provided for weddings under 25 people.

The Marriage Licence

The marriage licence is valid for 60 days from the day of issue. The Marriage licence has to be shown to the Notary or Minister prior to the ceremony, to ensure all legal requirements have been fulfilled. The Notary or Minister will then be responsible for posting the Marriage licence back to the courthouse to have it validated. This will become the official Marriage Certificate. This process should take between 4 – 6 weeks and will be posted directly back to the couple’s home address.
