Over 7 years ago Marie and I found this amazing property in North Hollywood and we wanted to create a space for our friends and family to gather and to celebrate life's amazing moments. What you see here are the results that started out as weeds and dirt into our secret garden. Over time so many guests have asked if we would let them celebrate one of their special moments and we were happy to share, now maybe its your turn to create that special time with friends and family. Easy to find location with great parking. Separate dance and grass areas. Lots of shade, 400 festoon party lights, separate bathroom, 6 separate 20 amp dedicated circuits. Accommodates up to 90 cozy guests. Modern Chef kitchen available (additional cost). Perfect for intimate weddings and bridal showers, birthdays. Have held many weddings, baby showers and parties. 3000 gallon Koi pond with waterfall. Very green landscape. seasonal vegetable garden. (Update) Since January 2020 Marie and I have been working on converting part of the back space by adding a separate 1/2 bath and added a shower to the existing bath to make that a full bath for a final total of 1-full and 1-half bath with a new separate entrance. We have also added a very small kitchen and a private makeup or other space for the bridal party etc. Marie an I feel that this will provide piece of mind for our guest and will make the space more comfortable for everyone. Due to the Corona Virus pandemic booking and events are obviously on hold for now. We feel that once things slowly start to get back to normal, small event booking's may explode so we are trying to be prepared. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns and we will try and address them as best as we can. 5/13/20 Update Well its May 13th and the last day of our renovations, there are still some straightening up to do but we are extremely proud of what has been accomplished in a very short time. Feel free to contact us and schedule a tour as soon as you feel comfortable, Marie and I will gladly and safely show you around and answer any questions and address any concerns you may have. One added thing, during your search, if you don't feel comfortable with a space, if its not exactly what you are looking for, please don't settle. This is such an important day, don't compromise!! Hope to see you soon! Gary and Marie

Gary was amazing to work with. He gave us so much great advice and answered all our questions. He was quick to respond to any of our messages. The venue itself was spectacular. It was our dream wedding!!! We couldn’t get over how beautiful everything was. Our guests had the time of their lives. Seriously a perfect wedding.
Mercedes M. booked an event for 85 people
We had our wedding in Gary and Marie's back yard, and it was by far the best decision we made in terms of getting married. The grounds are meticulously maintained with ample shade and lush greenery to create the perfect backdrop for an intimate garden celebration. Gary and Marie went above and beyond in terms of working with us and our schedule, making time for us to iron out details beforehand, and lending their support and insight on the day of our wedding. From start to finish, it was an incredible experience. I would do it all again, just to have another couple of hours under their magical lights and trees.
Viridiana L. booked an outdoor wedding for 90 people
I booked this venue for my wedding reception on Sept. 14th. I have to say that it was the best decision I could've made. Gary was quick to respond to any of the questions I had. He allowed us to bring the tables and chairs the night before the event. On the day of, he was attentive to all of my needs and allowed us to borrow things that we forgot to bring to the reception. He also gifted us with a fireworks machine for our first dance, which was a beautiful surprise for us. He was kind to us throughout the whole process and at the end of the night, he even helped carry out some tables and chairs. I'm so thankful for Gary and Marie's hospitality and would definitely book again. My guests wouldn't stop gushing about how beautiful the place was.
Venkata Srikanth T. booked a gender reveal party for 60 people
At first, I would like to thanks Gary and his family. This is the place where everybody wants to host a party at least once. Every guest in our party gave compliments about the place. This gorgeous backyard is a place to rent for any kind of party. I have never seen such a wonderful host and he is very responsive. Our experience was lovely. We had beautiful moments and memories at this place. I would 100% recommend it.
Michael S. booked a wedding reception for 40 people
Great space, very clean, peaceful and just perfect for a wedding with a smaller guest list- we had about 60 and it was just right. It’s very personable and like having it in ur own backyard as opposed to some sterile hotel ballroom. The owners were very nice and helpful. Well recommended.
Taylor S. booked an outdoor wedding for 60 people
Where can I even begin? This venue is absolutely gorgeous. Gary & Marie’s attention to detail makes the space feel truly magical. The beautiful water feature, lush greenery, and string lights that lit up the venue made for such a fairytale garden wedding. We got compliments on the space all night, and our pictures turned out amazing! Beyond just the venue, the experience here is priceless. Gary and Marie are beyond kind and helpful! Gary was there every time we had a question or a need. The hosts are beyond accommodating, and really helped make our special day that much more special. If you are looking at this space I would 100% recommend it. It’s 10/10 for us, and for all of our guests!
