    Nice and Professional

    We were contacted right away after reaching out, and we had an appointment on the books by the end of the call. They gave us a tour of their (beautiful) grounds, explained our options for each area, and walked us through the pricing plans. They are full service: from start to finish. They are not pricey, actually they are really well priced, especially for all they offer. Our budget is low but we are trying to figure out how to be able to work with them. We just felt really good about the whole experience.

    Beautiful Hidden Gem

    My husband and I held our reception at Brownstone Gardens and it could not have been an easier or more organized experience. From our very first meeting, Barbara wowed us with her professional take-charge attitude. But what really won us over was the venue itself. An absolutely gorgeous plot with several unique areas for events and pictures.

    The whole experience was wonderful and though I dont plan on getting married again, lol, it would be lovely to visit again for someone else's wedding!

    We have photographed many weddings at Brownstone Gardens and can't say enough good things about this venue. It is a family run business and they are very friendly, caring and knowledgeable. We love the lush settings this venue offers for photography backdrops. At night the reception area and dance floor are lit by an amazing canopy of lights strung above in trees. Brides looking for a fairy tail wedding should check out Brownstone Gardens.
