Perfect! Amazing! Beautiful!
I can’t say enough wonderful things about the staff and the grounds! The ceremony was beautiful and that in large part is due to the attentiveness of the staff! They took care of details that I hadn’t thought of and were very supportive. They had golf carts to help our family that were handicapped down to the site and made me overall feel so at ease! I would HIGHLY recommend them!!Sent on 09/17/2019

We absolutely love working at this place. It is beautiful and the staff is always great to work with. We can't say enough good things about this place.
A stunning location for a wedding!
Just a gorgeous location! For an outdoor location it's hard to beat Anderson Gardens in the Rockford area. From a huge waterfall, to the ponds and unique bridges and buildings as a photographic backdrop it's amazing. We've shot weddings here before and the staff has always been on top of it and never missing the smaller details. Check them out if you're looking for an amazing outdoor location with a beautiful indoor reception hall.
