Intimate, open air wedding with the help of an incredible crew
Kate Conaway with Jamie Hollander Catering made our wedding at Bartram's Garden incredibly special and beautiful. Because of COVID, we postponed, significantly downsized (250 to 24 guests), moved the reception outdoors, and created a layout that allowed for strict social distancing (each couple or family had their own small table.) Kate and Jamie Hollander were with us at every step. Kate understood my vision and ran with it. The intimate, open air wedding was a dream come true especially in such lush, vibrant surroundings. The food was the best of any wedding I've attended. The staff were amazing and very professional. My husband and I want to give a special shout out to Alfonso and Costello, two of our incredible servers, who treated us like royalty! Not only did this wedding celebrate my love for my husband and our marriage but was also such a beautiful memory in a tough year for all our guests. I think small weddings should stay in style. And you won't regret getting married at the beautiful Bartram's Garden with the help of Kate and the rest of the Jamie Hollander staff. Thank you, all!

We booked Bartram's Garden for our wedding during the dead of winter when the new pavilion wasn't even installed yet (we literally booked a blank space on top of a hill). We just knew that the pavilion was going to be amazing and we trusted the Jaime Hollander Catering team that they would produce a space that was beautiful. They did not let us down. Bartram's Garden is a hidden gem in the city....peaceful and lush with both city views and river views....you seriously can't ask for more.Sent on 06/07/2018

We are so happy that we chose to have our wedding at Bartram's Garden! It is a beautiful outdoor venue with a great barn and plenty of space for a reception rent and areas for guests to hang out. The staff were easy to contact, the prices were fair, and the gardens were gorgeous. Highly recommend if you want a simple but lovely outdoor space and flexibility with decor and vendors.Sent on 12/29/2016
