Harmony Gardens is an exquisite destination for your special day. Nestled under an oak hammock, the gardens provide a multitude of beautiful picture locations: a fish pond, fountain, rose garden, marble dance floor, 15 foot jasmine arbor and a continual supply of blooming shrubs and tropical plants throughout the wedding season. Night turns Harmony Gardens into a fairytale kingdom of towering trees and lighted, winding pathways. Add to this the shadows created by artisan made torches, and nighttime is the best time to be at Harmony Gardens. With a number of pavilions and portable tents, the gardens are usable in any weather (within reason). Up to 200 guests can be hosted for seated ceremonies and receptions. Catering is available, but not required. An event planners is on staff if requested. Please contact us to make your wedding the event that you and your guests will remember for a lifetime.
Harmony Gardens is located in beautiful, sub-tropical Central Florida on the 35 acre Aragon Ranch in Deleon Springs - home of Ponce De Leon's fountain of youth. We are just north of Deland and west of Daytona Beach. Years of providing exotic tropical plants to customers all over the United States have left us with an incredible collection of exotic gingers, heliconias, elephant ears and other tropical and sub-tropical plants artistically planted in a multi themed outdoor venue. A thick canopy of oak trees provides relief from the Florida sun in a comfortable yet elegant environment.
