Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions

Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding!

Sun and Shade

The Rutgers Gardens are a series of enchanting gardens tucked away on the campus of Rutgers University. We are delighted that you are considering us as a site for your wedding ceremony.

From early Spring to early Fall, the Rutgers Gardens provides a beautiful oasis of trees and flowers, making it the perfect place for your wedding ceremony and photographs.

The Roy DeBoer Evergreen Garden and the Art Rudolph Sun and Shade Garden are currently the only gardens where ceremonies are allowed. The Evergreen Garden can accommodate up to 200 people while the Sun and Shade Garden is perfect for 130 people. The Lillian Koelsch Gazebo ( donated by the Garden Club of New Jersey in association with Rutgers gardens) has recently been completed in the Sun and Shade Garden making it the perfect spot for your ceremony.

Celebrate your wedding at the Rutgers Gardens and create memories that will last a lifetime! For more information please contact Nancy Herbert.
