Weddings at Morris Arboretum

Weddings at Morris Arboretum

Morris Arboretum is the perfect setting for a truly memorable wedding. Imagine saying "I do" among towering trees and lovely vistas. The grounds will be exclusively yours - all 92 acres of lush, romantic gardens, bubbling fountains, and historic features. Mother Nature provides the backdrop for a beautiful outdoor ceremony, while we provide a historic Carriage House with tented area for reception and friendly, knowledgeable staff.

Our extensive tree and plant collections ensure that the Morris Arboretum looks spectacular at any time of year, from the flowering magnolia and cherry trees in spring to breathtaking roses and wildflowers in summer. If you like cooler weather, our fall foliage can't be beat and, in winter, our variety of witchhazels, hollies, and large conifers really stand out in the cold.

Whether your party is small or large, your dream wedding is waiting for you at Morris Arboretum.

Receptions

The Widener Visitors Center, an attractive former carriage house, serves as the base for your reception. (In case of inclement weather, the carriage house provides an indoor alternative for your ceremony. Your caterer is prepared to make the necessary transition flawlessly should the need arise).
