Whether planning a wedding, retirement party, birthday party, or a gathering for any occasion, let Olbrich Botanical Gardens be the backdrop. Olbrich has three rooms inside the botanical center that are available for rental year-round, each of which overlooks the stunning scenery of the Outdoor Gardens. The Bolz Conservatory is also available as an add-on for evening rentals and as a ceremony site for small, early evening weddings.

Our ceremony space, the Atrium features glass walls and a vaulted glass ceiling framed by oak beams. Potted plants draw the gardens into your event.
Our reception space, the Commons features a vaulted ceiling and a glass wall providing views of the gardens. Doors lead to the Lussier Terrace patio.
The carpeted Upstairs Meeting Room features windowed walls and beautiful views of the Gardens. All windows are fitted with room darkening mini-blinds.
The Bolz Conservatory is a unique site for a small wedding ceremony. The weather is always tropical and the setting always beautiful.
Food service is available through local caterers that are contracted to provide food service at Olbrich. You contract directly with the caterer of your choice from our approved caterer list. Bar service is also available upon request.
During peak wedding season, ceremony and reception spaces must be booked together as a package on Fridays and Saturdays only. In order to provide the best service possible, Olbrich hosts only one wedding event per day during this time of year.
The rest of the year, our wedding rental spaces may be booked à la carte - the Atrium or Conservatory for wedding ceremonies, and the Evjue Commons for wedding receptions.

For weddings during the Garden Season (May 26 - September 30, 2023 & May 24 - September 28, 2024), if there is good weather on the day of your wedding, you will have the option to move the ceremony outdoors to the Event Garden. Olbrich's Event Garden is beautifully landscaped with seasonal annuals and a dark wood pergola.
Please note that the Event Garden is a part of our outdoor public garden, so cannot be rented itself. It is not private and cannot be blocked off, but is an optional location to hold the ceremony on the day of the wedding. Other garden guests may pass by your wedding ceremony.
We encourage guests to take casual snapshots and videos of their visits for personal use. Our Photography Policy is in place to protect the gardens and minimize disruptions to other guests. Special rules apply when using the Gardens for things like formal, posed photography or commercial filming.
