One of New York City's most romantic places, QBG's Wedding Garden is a stunning location for your ceremony.

An intimate setting framed by flowering plants, wood bridges and gazebo, and enclosed by a white picket fence, the Wedding Garden gracefully blends elements of Eastern and Western garden design while evoking the refined elegance of the Victorian era.

Expertly tended by QBG's horticulturalists, the Wedding Garden's beds and borders burst with the brilliant palette of changing seasons, making it a picturesque setting throughout the year. The visual splendor is stunning, matched in beauty only by you and your bridal party!
