Beautiful venue that allows for pond side ceremony and dinning out under the stars. A magical venue that accommodated all of my handmade decorations. One stop shopping for catering and wedding planner. It's student run, but I couldn't tell per the level of professionalism that I received. I couldn't have been more happy. My only complaint was I wish the gardens were available for a longer period of time. They have strict closing times and I wish the fun could have continued for a few more hours.

I loved the garden. I recently had my ceremony here and it was perfect, everything was so beautiful and all my guests were amazed. Aside from the occasional low flying plane, at which time the staff was able to turn up the speaker volume so nothing was disrupted, it was a prefect venue. I will say I was a bit disappointed with the staff, I think it's a lot of college students working and some of them are not very responsive or professional. I had multiple appointments to drop off my deposit at their offices and when I would get there everyone would be gone. Luckily my "day of" coordinator was great. She kept us on schedule, in a nice way, and was very professional. I would highly recommend this venue for a ceremony.

My ceremony was beautiful there. We even had a dove ceremony as they inquired and suggested different visual elements to place in our ceremony. Everyone enjoyed it very much as it's an intimate place. Only thing is the guests are seated across the pond so they don't see a close up view of you however, they get a wonderful view of the entire ceremony and profile of the party versus the back of the bride and groom. You have to take a trip and visit it....and if you love gardens and nature, and a quite intimate area away from the world, ...this is a great place.

I had my wedding here in September 2014. Earl Burns Miller is probably the most beautiful setting to have a wedding in all of California. If you want amazing wedding pictures, this garden is unmatched by others. The garden looks so serene with the beautiful bridge, waterfall, pond, koi fish, etc. It truly is a hidden gem. I really just have to re-emphasize that your pics will turn out amazing! Now for the downsides, the the guests sit far back so they will have trouble seeing and hearing the actual ceremony. That was something I knew, but still thought the beauty of the garden was worth that one downside. The garden is also next to an airport so it gets pretty loud when the plane flies back maybe every 20-30 minutes. Luckily no planes flew during our ceremony, but its a risk you will have to take. Also if you hire a band, you will need to bring your own speaker equipment or else their music will not be heard at all. Other than that, I have no regrets over picking the garden for my ceremony. We looked at every garden within a 30 mile radius from our house and Earl Burns was by far the most breathtaking. Other gardens do not hold a candle to this beauty.

We booked the venue a year in advance, not because we had to, but because we loved it. It was beautiful and a little unconventional. They offer someone to help coordinate the event for you, but some times you're working with the full-time professional coordinator, other times a student employee. I was very concerned by the lack of communication as the even approached. In fact we showed up on the day of our consultation (both sets of parents in tow) and they rushed us through because they double booked! So come three days before the ceremony, we were assigned to a student coordinator (Diane I believe), and she was WONDERFUL. Very detail oriented, and really put my fears to rest. The whole event went off without a hitch and was perfect. It was the best wedding I've ever been to (even though I am biased). We did not opt to have a dance floor as it would have been small and awkward, but rather our reception turned out like an elegant and magical dinner party. I would hight recommend this place, and you really can't get a better deal for the money! I also recommend buying the extra time for photos-- otherwise it will be very rushed!

The venue is at CSULB and it is beautiful. The student workers changed many times over the year and a half that I dealt with the garden, between booking and actual wedding day. Yet, everything still went off without a hitch. I strongly suggest using this venue and using their preferred vendors.

This natural venue is absolutely gorgeous! The seating arrangements are non-traditional and provided an excellent view to our nuptials. Guests are arranged around a koi fish pound!! Bridal parties are lined on across a beautiful bridge. The staff was efficient and reliable. I would NOT recommend them for anyone else to use...only becasue I want this memory all to myself ;) Just kidding...they're exceptional. Please tell your freinds!

This venue was gorgeous!! We got so many compliments on the venue choice. The service had me scared though because the coordinators that day are students and the responses were were getting regarding rehearsals confirmations and day of details were not accurate. Everything worked out at the end and the pictures turned out beautiful!

It was indeed a BEAUTIFUL location and I am so happy I had my wedding there. The problem is it is run mainly by students, and the students change with the semester of school. We had problems with people getting back to us, and losing our rehearsal time. Also, our coordinator that we were eventually assigned, seemed a bit uninterested and rushed (especially at the rehearsal). Overall, for the price I felt a little let down by the service.
