The Amarillo Botanical Gardens is full of exotic plant life from spiky cacti to brightly-colored tropical flowers. Weddings are given a special and unique flair with these plants as part of the scenery. For outdoor weddings the back lawn has a spacious layout and a view of a nearby lake. The Event Lawn is lined with shade trees to protect guests from the Texas heat. The Amphitheater has a spacious patio and is located at the base of the tropical conservatory. If couples choose to take the festivities indoors the Gardens offers the Gallery for more intimate weddings or the Auditorium that can hold between 175-250 people depending on the layout for the room.
