Golden Gate Park - Fuchsia Dell

Established in 1940 and located by the Conservatory of Flowers, the Fuchsia Dell provides a delightful, peaceful space to hold a wedding ceremony or reception in Golden Gate Park. The best time to plan a wedding at the Fuchsia Garden is when the purple-red blooms are in season - starting in May and continuing on until November. In the area, other trees and shrubs are also in bloom, offering plenty of opportunities to take gorgeous wedding photos.
