    Absolutely wonderful.

    Zilli helped us put together a picture-perfect wedding at Boerner. The food was the best we'd ever had at a wedding (no joke -- we wondered if part of it was the benefit of having the kitchen right next to the venue), especially the smoked gouda orzo and the pork. I don't even like pork! The staff was helpful and responsive every step of the way, and helped us customize what we wanted to customize, and make quick decisions on the stuff we didn't care so much about. We only had one proverbial fire to put out the day-of, and our Zilli coordinator just jumped in and fixed everything, no questions asked. Did I mention the orzo? Our flowers, our decor, our food, even the craft beers at the bar were custom for us and worth the price. The only thing that got a little $$ was the things they had to order from outside vendors (those adorbs bistro lights in the ballroom!) sigh.
    My only mistake -- which would've happened at any venue -- was pitching my original wedding budget to the venue as what my TOTAL wedding budget was (like, dress and photographer and music and other non-venue things included), rather than my VENUE budget. So for anyone reading this looking for venues, remember this when you're asking for estimates. (Seems obvious in retrospect, oops. Ha!)
    Anyway, Zilli was great, and the botanical gardens were great. 10/10 would get married there again.

    Gorgeous Venue, forever in love!

    I cannot begin to express, how much we loved our wedding at the Boerner Botanical Gardens. We worked with Yvette and Cheyenne, and they were so professional, amazing, wonderful and all around the best people to work with. From the start in meeting with Yvette, she incredibly thorough; any questions I had during the entire process she got back to us in a timely manner. She and Cheyenne were lifesavers during planning with Covid. (They were the calming presence I needed during the uncertainty of our venue, and any restrictions that were coming our way.) You definitely fall in love with the venue, but the support and people make it. The entire staff was so professional and kind during the actual wedding (from the Bar Staff, to the servers for dinner, top notch all the way through. I cannot be more grateful to them) Would highly recommend The Boerner Botanical Gardens for your wedding, it will not disappoint.

    **Yvette and Cheyenne, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you two are incredible humans! **

    Boerner Botanical Gardens's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind review, Becky! We are so glad that Yvette, Cheyenne, and the rest of our staff were able to help with your special day. Best wishes!

    Our wedding was perfect!!!

    Zilli's catered our wedding at the Boerner Botanical Gardens, and everything was fantastic. From start to finish, everything was flawless. We loved all the food and received many compliments from our guests. The staff was friendly and professional. Amber and Yvette worked with us throughout the planning process and helped us customize a menu that fit our needs. We are so happy with our choice. We will never forgot how perfect our wedding turned to be, and we are so thankful for Zilli's great food and service.
