The Conservatory of Flowers has captivated guests for more than a century. This gem of Victorian architecture has a long and storied history, and is the oldest wood and glass conservatory in North America. As a city, state, and national historic landmark, the Conservatory remains one of the most beloved attractions in Golden Gate Park.

The Conservatory is available to rent for ceremonies, cocktail hours, seated dinners and dancing receptions. Host it all or scale it down.

Wedding guests move through the landmark facility throughout the evening, and appreciate the ease of ceremony and reception all in one place.

In 2008, a new event space adjacent to the Aquatic Plants gallery was added for larger, sit-down dinner functions, events or meetings. Outdoor ceremonies and tented events for up to 300+ people can be held on the Conservatory’s lawn or platform. Flower lovers will find no better place for a celebration than this Conservatory. It’s a uniquely beautiful San Francisco landmark.

Should you decide against tenting, the Orchid Gallery can seat up to 199 guests for a ceremony. The space can be flipped for your reception while guests enjoy cocktails in the botanical galleries.

If you’re looking for a symbolic place to begin your marriage, you can’t beat the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. This seemingly fragile, multi-faceted gem of a building with a thriving, ever-growing, organic heart, has suffered fire, earthquakes and windstorms—and yet, it’s still standing after 130 years.

The Vestibule is the entry to the Conservatory and a lovely entrée to your event. While you’re serving cocktails in this peaked roof section, take a look at the surrounding glass: It’s not all white or clear, but punctuated by jewel-like insets of green, tiger lily orange, ruby and delphinium blue.

Guests enjoy reserved parking (a rare perk for drivers in San Francisco) in the Dahlia Garden, where the city’s official flower is at its magnificent peak July through October.

Just past Potted Plants is Special Exhibits, a large open gallery dominated by the ethereal, spun-sugar look of the Conservatory’s structure. Depending on the availability of this space, ceremonies take place here among changing exhibits that always include a variety of plants.

“Our guests loved the setting, and enjoyed the dynamic effect of starting outdoors in Golden Gate Park, then walking through the exhibits and mingling during cocktail hour… The history, architecture, nature, flowers…it’s ideal.” 
– Lillian, 2012 Bride
