The ultimate garden paradise can be found on Brownstone Road just outside of downtown Oakley, California. At Brownstone Gardens, every little detail is dedicated to creating an intimate garden experience that whispers of magic. From hidden resting spots to the bursts of twinkle lights, Brownstone has perfected the wedding scene—private, blissfully romantic, with plenty of room for dancing under the stars. With ten wedding seasons under their belt, the team is expert at crafting celebrations worth remembering.
No doubt, the magic of Brownstone Gardens stems from its vibrant pool of greenery. It drips from the curly vines clinging to their woodier neighbors just as it floats up from the sitting mix of shrubbery and roses. It’s almost as though the garden has a mind of its own, intertwining into a lovely, fragrant mess that falls beyond anything words can describe. A walk past the wisps of warm light along the winding path leads to the tranquil Koi Garden. A small bridge is draped across the calm water and its colorful residents, creating a picturesque scene for photos. Farther back, a charming butterfly chair invites two for seating. The garden expands into a large open area marked by dainty strings of light cast over the entire square—the perfect gathering place. For intimate dining and dancing, a tiered garden space boasts a lively waterfall. Here, the mix of extended vines, leafy arms, and bowing trees pull together to form a private paradise lit up with hanging lights. Yet the ultimate ceremony site waits at the pavilion, an elegant lawn framed by a trimmed collection of blooming trees. A marble arbor stands at the end of the walkway, commanding the space with its romantic, Grecian stature. Delicate drapery enhances the feel of the pavilion, topping it off with a sweet, idyllic glaze.
