Looking for a place to get married or renew your vows in these challenging times?
California Botanic Garden is here to help you book your Wedding Ceremony.
Weddings with strictly limited attendance can take place in compliance with the following restrictions:

• For a certificate of marriage to be appropriately executed, the couple being married, the officiant and a witness must be physically present and visible to each other during the exchange of vows.

• A wedding requires an in-person officiant and witness (the internet does not meet that requirement).

• Attendance for private outdoor gatherings may include up to 3 households and up to a total of 15 people with social distancing and the use of face coverings.

• Social (physical) distancing must be observed during the ceremony (except between the couple).

• If a member of the couple has symptoms of COVID-19 infection, the ceremony may not take place.

• If the officiant has symptoms of COVID-19, the ceremony may only take place if it is possible to find a substitute.

• If a guest has symptoms of COVID-19, they may not attend the ceremony.

• The service may be live streamed to permit virtual participation of others. It may also be taped for later viewing. In either case, the recording must be carried out without any additional attendees.

• Limit the use of objects, equipment, and supplies that may be difficult to disinfect or make it hard to ensure social (physical) distancing.
