For decades, the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden has been a popular place to get married. But it DOES REQUIRE a permit. There are two locations that are available for Weddings – The Rose Garden Stage, and the Fountain/Arbor.
The ROSE GARDEN STAGE is perfect for the larger wedding and can accommodate up to 200 guests. Chairs are allowed in this area BUT NO AMPLIFIED SOUND/SPEAKERS – the weddings are “au naturale”. Your guests will be surrounded by a cathederal of redwood trees overlookinng the thousands of roses. It is a magical setting. It is suggested to use Williams Party Rentals, located just down the street for your chair rentals and wedding decoration needs.
The FOUNTAIN/ARBOR area is a more intimate location, with up to 75 standing guests. A heavy timer arbor covered with “the sweetheart rose” Cécile Brünner, is a perfect entrance for the lovely bride as she approaches the wedding party. The art deco fountain provides a beautiful backdrop to your ceremony.
To reserve your date, you MUST go to LEININGER COMMUNITY CENTER located at 1300 Senter Road, San Jose, 95112. For information you can call 408-794-7275 or visit the web page HERE.
