Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Park

Congratulations on your engagement!
Thank you for considering Sonnenberg for your wedding ceremony, wedding reception, or wedding photo shoot. Our Garden Season runs from mid-May through mid-October, providing a beautiful outdoor venue while our flowers are in bloom. Our unique gardens offer many varieties of annuals and picturesque landscaping, and our staff is ready to help you create treasured memories of your wedding day. We invite you to explore the many services Sonnenberg offers.

Garden Ceremonies
Sonnenberg offers ceremonies of varying sizes to accommodate as few as a dozen guests up to several hundred to witness you taking your vows.
All couples are welcome to choose our primary ceremony site with its formal, traditional ambience for ceremonies of any size. When planning a small ceremony, for 40 guests or fewer, some of our outlying gardens may be used as an alternate location in which to create an intimate, cozy feel.

Large ceremonies, accommodating 50 – 250+ guests, can be located at either the primary Pergola site for a ceremony with a traditional, formal style, or the Beech Tree Plateau site, where a simple grass plateau, with a large, red-leaf Copper Beech Tree stands behind and other trees grace the sides creating a natural “stage” with impressive views for up to 400 guests.

Receptions & Dinner Events
Sonnenberg offers two primary venues for wedding receptions and dinner events: an indoor facility (our Carriage House) that can seat approximately 75 or fewer guests when you plan to include dancing at your dinner event, or outdoor receptions staged under a beautiful white pole tent for larger groups with 70 - 250 or more guests. (Tent sizes and pricing varies depends on your guest count and event needs.) With Sonnenberg’s inclusive site/service packages, you are free from much of the stress of planning, so you can concentrate on enjoying every minute. All receptions include an optional evening (usually 5 p.m.) ceremony, allowing up to six hours before your reception concludes at 11 p.m. Sonnenberg reserves the evening time slot for ceremonies with receptions following in order to offer dedicated use of the park venues throughout the evening when the park is closed to public guests.

Photo Shoots at Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion
Capture the romantic images you’ve dreamed of on your special day with an independent wedding or engagement photo shoot. Select beautiful backdrops for up to 20 people with your advance reservation for a 1.5-hour photo session on the estate during Garden Season (mid-May to early October). Choose 3 of the following areas with your paid reservation: Japanese Garden, Rock Garden, Italian Garden, Old-Fashioned Garden, Rose Garden, Blue & White Garden, Sub-Rosa Garden, Pansy & Moonlight Gardens, or South Lawn (below Mansion). A Sonnenberg representative will meet you at the entrance nearest the gardens and escort your party to your chosen locales.
