We’ve recently visited Filoli and recorded a short into movie. It was a bit gloomy day but nevertheless Filoli looked amazing!
Why You’ll Fall in Love with Filoli
Planted more than a century ago, Filoli are brimming with color and fragrance of its gracious roses, petunias, dahlias, gladioli, foliage plants, California Poppies and other beautiful plants thoughtfully tied together into gorgeous and eye-catching themes. But because there are so many adorable garden venues in and around San Francisco, maybe you’ll ask why THIS property of all places? Because it is HUGE, INTIMATE, SECLUDED & BEAUTIFUL, and it is now available for small weddings!
Filoli is also a place steeped in history. The property was established by Mr and Mrs William Bowers Bourn II who hired Bruce Porter, a talented artist and landscape
designer to create an extensive flower garden which we are still admiring today. But its contemporary beauty and enormous popularity should also be credited to Mr and Mrs William P. Roth, who purchased the property in 1937. Thanks to its second owners, the garden has become recognizable and admired worldwide. They donated 125 acres of land to the non-profit organization National Trust for Historic Preservation and sold the remaining land to the Filoli Centre.
