Wedding hosts If you haven't volunteered with us before, rest assured there is training and we will assign a Committee member to volunteer with you. The easiest way to volunteer is as a wedding host! We'll loan you a Japanese Happi coat and you'll simply accompany one of the Committee members as they welcome the wedding guests to the garden or greet members of the public to let them know when the garden will next be open again.
We accept reservations for weddings, events and photo sessions. Once someone secures the reservation with a payment of $200 per hour and a contract, we place the reservation online. http://www.normandale.edu/jgweddings Then we put out a large signboard to let everyone know that the garden is reserved. Here is a link to a wedding held at the Normandale Japanese Garden. https://youtu.be/-t-CYRYEnuY
