Willow Glen's Sunken Yard has been a favorite location for outdoor wedding ceremonies for almost 30 years. The manicured lawn can accommodate up to 200 guests for a romantic outdoor wedding. The banks surrounding the lawn are covered with shrubs and flowers in season. Several species of mature trees top the banks and give a private, room-like feel to this popular outdoor venue.
Your guests park in Willow Glen's 2 acre main parking lot and enter through a vine covered arbor that marks the beginning of a romantic path through Willow Glen's side yard then around the tree lined bank, past the top of our main waterfall and into the sunken yard where they are typically greeted by one or more Bridesmaids. After signing your guest book guests are free to mingle while enjoying your selection of music and the naturally soothing sounds of Willow Glen's waterfall and wild birds in season until the call to be seated is given.
At the designated time, your procession proceeds from either of two possible entrances along a topiary lined path through the center of the audience to a wedding arch near the main waterfall. After completion of your ceremony, the sunken yard provides several vignettes suitable for small and large group photos. We have been told time and again, "Your sunken yard is just what I imagined my wedding would be."
Willow Glen's outdoor stage patterned after a building from America's Old West offers a unique venue that can accommodate up-to 300 guests dancing or 150 seated banquet style. If your family loves to dance, food service can be provided on the adjacent lawn area and/or in the Old Barn Restaurant. If your family is dance challenged, the space can be set up banquet style (as shown in the photo above) avoiding the "empty dance floor" syndrome. However, most of our wedding parties choose a combination setup that provides tables and chairs for guest seating while still allowing room for dancing. Our stage also provides performance space for a DJ, 5-piece rock band or even a small chamber orchestra.
Whether you are planning a cowboy wedding, a formal event with the traditional classical flare or a contemporary, informal party, Willow Glen's outdoor stage fills the bill.
Old Barn Restaurant
Willow Glen's Old Barn Restaurant located next to the outdoor stage (just visible on the left edge of the photo above) completes the wedding and reception facilities. It compliments the rustic western flavor of our stage, serves as an alternate venue in case of inclement weather and provides, food service facilities, brides dressing room and public restrooms for your guests. It also accommodates weddings and receptions through the winter months with its real wood fireplace, cast iron gas stove, high ceilings and separate ceremony and reception rooms.
The Old Barn Restaurant offers indoor wedding ceremony seating for up to 70 guests and banquet seating for up to 100 guests without dancing or up to 80 guests with dancing. However, larger parties can be accomodated with additional standing room for the ceremony.
