Edith J. Carrier Arboretum at JMU Weddings & Social Events

We handle bridal dreams with care... and deliver garden weddings with flair!

No more beautiful Virginia and Shenandoah Valley setting for a garden wedding could be found! We offer an array of options where a landscaped, lush backdrop enhances moments of nuptial beauty. The arboretum staff offers tent rental, full setup, catering with bar-tending, and an indoor facility for rehearsal dinners or small receptions and more.

Even if not for weddings, the Arboretum has a scenically-placed small conference facility for garden clubs, educator groups, and private receptions and parties in its relaxing garden setting and an on-site event coordinator to help plan your conference or event. Wedding dates are available 365 days a year for brides seeking a lovely and reasonably priced garden venue. Weddings for nature lovers to birdwatchers, or for brides who are selective and want scenic backdrops from every direction for beautiful wedding portraits, visit the arboretum website to reserve now.
