River Garden Wedding & Event Venue is an outdoor garden located in Vista, CA that was built in 2019 meant to serve the community by hosting weddings and other community events. Owners Matt and Amy began their journey by imagining a space where the community could gather. Read Matt and Amy's Venue story here. The venue space was carefully designed to fit couples need with a beautiful blank space so that they could create their own wedding dreams.
River Garden features 36,000 sq feet of beautiful space with a glass conservatory and amazing water features. At River Garden the covered lawns and 3 gate access points allow couples to design a ceremony space that is unique to their style. Allowing the wedding processional to have a direct walkway to the altar. One of the processional access points guides you across a beautiful cascading water feature where you can walk across the bridge to access the ceremony location.
