Lora is an amazing human being as well as a fantastic wedding planner. Lora was always an email or phone call away. Very easy to reach. She helped me make my wedding day completely stress free. She also helped me create my wedding vision and made my reception exactly how I envisioned it. She truly just wants to help the bride have the wedding of her dreams. She also was my florist and was reasonably priced. Lora is GREAT!!!

Lora is absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!

My husbands best friend and wife got married at English Gardens and she was also there wedding planner. They recommended her and the Venue to us. It was the very first one we looked at and I absolutely fell in love with the Venue and Lora!!!! She was so helpful and would do absolutely anything to make your wedding everything you dreamed it would be she actually made mine better than I could ever imagine on the budget we had!!!! Any phone call I made to her she would get right back to me if I left a message and she would help me with everything I asked her about! On my wedding night she did the set up of everything. When I was stuck on picking out songs she played hundreds for me until I found that perfect one to walk do the aisle too!!! : ) She made sure everything was perfect just how I would like it. She also even helped with my gown. She went above and beyond for my husband I and I couldn't imagine my wedding being as spectacular as it was without her. I'm still to this day in touch with her. She is like another part of my family!! Without her I wouldn't have had my fairy tale wedding!!! Thank You Lora!!!

I loved this place. I was a bride on a strict budget and this was the only place that I got my bang for my buck. Everything lookes so elegant and classy. Lori made me feel like I was special and calmed my nerves. The garden is beautiful. She helped us with the wedding lineup. She was always very personable. You will NOT regret it. Hopefully I'll be able to do my vow renewal here as well.

There isn't much to say except that if you want to have the perfect wedding, have it at English Gardens. The only things stressed over in the wedding planning process were things that Lora wasn't there to help with. She went above and beyond what was expected, and felt more like a friend than a business owner. We can not stop saying "everything was perfect!" and thats because it was! Our night was absolutely amazing thanks to Lora and English Gardens. Thank you!!!

This is a gorgeous site. I just had my wedding there, and it was absolutely perfect. It was in the evening, and the coordinator was perfect. She was on the ball, and she was incredibly accommodating. The site was the perfect size for my 100-guest wedding. I couldn't have asked for a better site. My wedding dreams came true.

Lora was easy to work with and she had everything perfect for my wedding day. It was all DIY, which can be stressful, but she made it much easier than I could ever imagine. Thank you, Lora!!!

I had my wedding and reception at English Gardens. Everything was wonderful. I was so happy when my wedding planner found this place for us. We wanted to have our wedding and reception in one location and this was the perfect place. I just feel in love with the bridal cottage. The whole place is breath taking you have to go there web site and see for yourself. You will be pleased with everything that you see.

We were pleased with the owners and the staff. Although we felt some of the servers were maybe inexperienced they still showed professionalism and were very friendly. The owner Lora did a wonderful job, kept things organized, great communication, and was always willing to help. She kept the ceremony in flow and gave me as the bride confidence to trust it all over to her lead. The garden itself was beautiful in August. The temperature was manageable outside and English Gardens provided a comfortable temperature for the inside. It was very cozy and gave a warm close friend/family feeling throughout our time there. Pricing was more than comparable and although we did not take advantage of all that English Gardens offers, we were impressed by the amount they did have to offer. You can get an all in one package for a great price.
English Gardens does give the appearance (gardens well kept) and communication (relationships with staff) an overall authentic sincerity of joint happiness with their customers on their new marriage. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat for anyone who is wanting to get married in a garden. Especially a garden that provides a home like feeling.

Unfortunately, through my wedding coordinator I understood, that this venue was not very flexible in allowing little accents such as rose petals on the ground down the asle. Although vendor Lora is really nice, she is hard to reach and somewhat opposite of helpfulness.
Lora Ritzie Wardman responded with the following comments:
We have been in business for 17 years and are very flexible. The couples that I work with reserve their weddings with us for this reason. I have always allowed petals in our garden and encourage Brides to cover the walkway with them. It is absolutely beautiful. It appears that the coordinator they hired for this event gave them false information.
