Cape Fear Botanical Garden

The Orangery

Cape Fear Botanical Garden provides an impressive setting for weddings, receptions, showers, retreats, military functions, meetings and more. In addition to outdoor gardens, we also have indoor spaces.The octagonal 6,685 square foot Orangery includes an indoor fountain, a 52 foot high natural pine deck ceiling and cupola, tile floors, and arched glass doors opening onto a paved patio and overlooking the Garden. A catering kitchen as well as a bridal suite, are situated off the main room of the Orangery.

When you rent the Orangery for your event, you also have access to the Orangery Terrace – the optimal space for the addition of an outdoor tent for a cocktail hour – providing an indoor/outdoor event setting.

Our Event Coordinators will work with you to ensure your celebration is wonderful and memorable. For inspiration, view our Pinterest board.

We appreciate you considering Cape Fear Botanical Garden as your event venue. By hosting your special event at the Garden, you help support our cultural and educational programming and activities.
