Spring, summer, and fall invite weddings and receptions outdoors to explore and delight in the possibilities of our expansive south conifer garden and lawn.  Alive with thousands of colorful blossoms, these gardens are the perfect site for your romantic wedding ceremony and delight guests both day and night throughout your event.  Glorious throughout the grounds are well established perennial plants that bloom in spring, summer, and fall respectively. In spring there are dazzling grape hyacinths, allium, and daffodils.  Summer boasts coneflower, rudbeckia, and Monarda, and in the fall, late and long blooming mums grace the gardens. These and a variety of ornamental grasses, vines, shrubbery and trees artfully comprise the outdoor gardens of the Quad City Botanical Center and compliment all styles of weddings and receptions.  The outdoor pond, divided from the interior only by the glass atrium wall provides even more photo opportunities than can be imagined.  And for winter brides, rest assured that the wide variety of unique and rare conifer trees also provide texture, color, and life over the winter months!  The gardens are available all year long.

Our year round 70-foot glass garden conservatory expands the horizon of weddings and receptions to a tropical garden paradise.   Your experience includes a 14-foot waterfall, reflecting pools and gorgeous islands flourishing with tropical plants and flowers. Brick walkways throughout often host stations of delectable hors d’oeuvres or champagne for toasting.  Your eyes take in lustrous green leaves and brightly colored flowers.  Your lungs delight in the oxygen-rich air.  To look at the glowing leaves & blooms with sunlight passing through is reminiscent of majestic stained glass and the night time splendor in white lighted ambience is remarkable.  The stunning display of your special day brings cheer and well being to all who share in your celebration!

Hundreds of satisfied couples have already chosen the Quad City Botanical Center for their weddings and receptions. We offer the most stunning setting, unrivaled in the Quad City area.  Step inside our spacious and welcoming lobby situated just a short distance from ample and well lighted parking. The tastefully decorated 3,080 square foot banquet room with dance floor awaits your creative transformation into the reception space of your dreams.
