The Oklahoma City area has many options for outdoor wedding ceremonies. The newest venue in 2014 is Arbor Gardens in Moore. Arbor Gardens has a gazebo type structure overlooking a pond, sidewalks wind from the parking area to the gazebo and throughout the wooded 10 acres. The gazebo will hold close to 30 seated guests. There are several bridges to cross, creating numerous photo opportunities.
There are plans for the park in the near future to become an arboretum. A large variety of plants have yet to be installed. In the meantime, most of the construction appears to be done. Restrooms were added near the parking area last fall.
Rental of the park is a minimum cost of $15. per hour for nonresidents of Moore. Residents can reserve for 2 free hours.
