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.Sent on 10/17/2019

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.Sent on 08/25/2019

Best day ever!
We could not be more thrilled that we chose to go with a Zilli venue for our wedding. We held our reception at the Boerner Botanical Gardens and cannot say enough positive things about Amber and Yvette as our coordinators! Leading up to our wedding, Amber and Yvette communicated regularly, keeping us on a very organized timeline for planning. They followed up regularly and answered questions immediately. We could not be more grateful for how the wedding day turned out! The whole day was truly magical and came to life exactly how we had envisioned. The venue is fabulous because you can really decorate it according to your style. The timeline of the day was executed beautifully and smooth, thanks to all the magic going on behind the scenes. Not only is the venue stunning, but the food was beyond amazing. People are still raving about the food, that we had the best wedding buffet food they'd ever had. Thank you, Amber and Yvette, for helping us create the best day of our lives; one that we will always cherish and remember!Sent on 09/19/2019
