Grayson Gardens , the Wedding Spot

Entrance to Grayson Gardens, the wedding spot.This private residence and garden is tucked into an old Los Angeles neighborhood and has an interesting history, and I did not hear much of it but Valentino was part of it.Look at this entry!
We arrived early so got to look around before things really got underway. My husband surveys the Tiki Bar....not shown are pictures of the pub, and various other beautiful garden spots.
And look at this fantastic outdoor cooking area, I am getting ideas here.
The trees have stone seats around them and many of the wedding guests sat around them as they ate and visited .
I like this simple, yet lovely idea of strewing blossoms and petals before the ceremony begins.
The fountain was turned on after the ceremony because the noise of the rushing water would have been loud. At dusk the trees were all alight. It was a lovely night and through the trees you could see starlight, that is when the dancing began~

What a lovely and magical spot for a wedding! I love the stone seats built around the trees.

I agree with Daisy; this is a magical place for a wedding. You and your husband would enjoy an outdoor kitchen as much as your family and friends get together. Dancing under the stars sounds magical as well.

Kathy - that is gorgeous! "magical" is definitely the right word for this lovely spot. A wonderful way to begin life together, then off to the honeymoon!

I'm wanting an outdoor kitchen, too. That would be so fun in nice weather to have friends/family over and cook! I'd like one with Mexican tile please!

hard to imagine a "magical" garden spot in LA but definitely wonderful - yes that outdoor kitchen could inspire those of us who love to entertain!
