About Us

“There is a time for everything”, King Solomon

After years of contemplation I came to rest on the decision to close my retail gift shop & to utilize the beauty in front of me for greater purposes.

I wanted to create beautiful scenery elegant, in a natural setting amidst courtyards, pathways, water features & gardens.  The goal was to implement different outdoor rooms for wonder & exploration.  That is entirely what we accomplished when my husband gave me a plot of ground on his 20-acre nursery in the lush sky valley tucked between 3 rivers in Monroe.

In your quest for the perfect venue Gala Events & Venue at Sky Valley Gardens offers you a delightful setting in all seasons: Summer, Fall, Winter or Spring.  Weddings, company gatherings, birthday’s or corporate events.  Gala offers celebrations to remember.

Hallmark, is our beautiful 1,500 sf. paved floor greenhouse; the perfect picturesque botanical setting for large gatherings.

Our 1,400 sf. Elegantly decorated shop can fluidly be anything you desire, whether an intimate affair, a gathering area, bridal or baby shower.  Food preparation area for caterers, refrigerator, sink & restrooms located here.  A contemporary styled glass garage door leads you out into a covered courtyard.

Impressive cobble and brick pathways, an alley lined with flowering plums and lofty Italian cypress mingle alongside four stunning courtyards, each with their own attributes to offer create breathtaking photo opportunities.  An outstanding Stack Stone infinity water feature is one of many on the grounds along with several fountains, arbors and gazebos.

The fragrant gardens entertain their own panache.  Colorful roses, white hydrangeas, pots precisely placed all casually overflow in visual hues.  Additionally, a formal green island Ilex maze showcases crushed granite pathways underfoot.

Two separate and private picturesque greenhouses for bride and groom nestle against towering emerald greens.

Our vision became a stunningly beautiful reality.  Our hope and prayer is for you to experience the same
