We had our ceremony at the Conservatory in the Sunken Garden, and it was absolutely beautiful. The staff was SO helpful leading up to the event, even the last minute questions were answered extremely quickly and graciously. As an example, we wanted to do communion as part of our ceremony, so they set up a table (that blended into the background pretty well, actually) and a tiny receptacle for the cups before we got there. We also had a few seats near the front for elder family members, as well as for our string trio at the back of the garden. Everything was perfect. It is such a gorgeous space with all of the flowers and plants, and it smells heavenly. They are pretty strict with their policies (timing and photography), but we were let into the space early (both for the rehearsal and the wedding) and ended up having more than enough time for photos, and were never bothered. What a stunning backdrop for photos!

We could not have had a better experience - it felt tropical, looked beautiful, smelled wonderful, and overall, it was definitely the perfect venue for our winter wedding!!
