AMAZING experience 🥰

My Husband and I live out of state in California. Looking for a venue for our wedding in slc was a bit difficult for us. But Rita & Joi exceeded our expectations for everything all around! They were so attentive and very responsive. We had the BEST experience working with them. Everyone in our Family had an amazing time as did we. If you're looking for a BEAUTIFUL outdoor venue Aoki Event Garden is the one for you! We'll definitely be planning my baby shower there 😉🥰🤞

Wonderful Event Venue

Aoki Event Garden was an absolutely perfect venue. The care and attention to detail on the property and from the owners provided the perfect canvas for my wife's 40th birthday celebration. And Joi and Rita were such a pleasure to work with in preparing for the event and on the day of. With it being such a new venue, even the vendors I hired (caterer, bartender, DJ, balloons, and a photo booth) were blown away. I'd recommend Aoki Event Garden for any event.
