Facilities and Capacity

Phipps Conservatory has several fine indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception spaces. The four-tiered outdoor garden comprises nearly an acre of lush lawns and gardens, and at its center stands a large, picturesque fountain. The garden can be used as a ceremony or reception space, and seasonal tents, capable of covering up to 200 guests and a dance floor, are available. The multi-level Tropical Forest is the facility’s largest display area. Covering 12,000 square feet, it teems with lush tropical flora and features a treetop lookout, a fish pond, waterfalls, and gently-meandering paths. The Special Events Hall features lovely bamboo floors and floor-to-ceiling glass walls that offer stunning views of the adjacent Tropical Forest and distant city landmarks. The room also has state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment. The enchanting Broderie Room is modeled on landscaping styles popular among the French nobility during the reign of the Sun King, Louis XIV. It is embellished with formal hedged gardens, bronze Edmond Amateis maiden statues, and an Italian wishing well. The Broderie Room, along with the East Room, the Victoria Room, and the Sunken Garden, make up the conservatory’s East Wing, which can accommodate 60 guests for a cocktail-style reception or 36 for a seated buffet. The entire Phipps facility, a total of 14 rooms, is also available for rental.

  • We had a small wedding (just six people) in the Broderie Room at night and it was simply magical. It was incredibly beautiful and romantic! Lovely Sahara was our coordinator and she did an absolute remarkable job making our day smooth. Anytime I needed anything through out the night, she was ON IT. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. As soon as I met her, I felt comfortable and at ease. Everyone at Phipps, especially Sahara, was responsive to all our questions and concerns. She was understanding and willing to make us happy on our big day... Phipps has so much history, as my husband's family is proudly a part of (history of the bonsai), and to make the Phipps' Broderie room our gorgeous back drop for our ceremony, we were really humbled honestly. Phipps is absolutely stunning at night. If you're looking for a beautiful venue for a small wedding like mine, consider the Broderie Room or any of the gorgeous rooms at Phipps!
