    Absolutely Stunning

    We had such a beautiful wedding ceremony at Anderson Japanese Gardens. Their staff was top notch and helped us with everything from the rehearsal to the photos. Speaking of photos, ours are stunning thanks to the beautiful grounds.

    The Wedding Team Rocked!!

    Anderson Japanese Garden was the best place to get married!! The venue was gorgeous, the team we were with rocked and overall was just terrific!
    The team was responsive, great at communicating quickly and very informative. We got married in the pavilion and it was simply perfect. If you love the outdoors, enjoy nature and flowers you should definitely get married here!!
    XcitePhoto was my photographer out of Naperville by the way too!!

    Anderson Japanese Gardens's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words Julie! We are glad to have been a part of your big day and I am glad the team made it that much better! We hope to see you at the Gardens soon!

A stunning location for a wedding!

FotoEnvy Studios FotoEnvy Studios Wedding Photographers

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.
