    A night we will remember forever

    Brownstone, where do I begin?

    Thank you for giving us the wedding of our absolute dreams, and a night that we will remember for the rest of our lives.

    My wife and I chose Brownstone to host our wedding early in 2020 after visiting the grounds and speaking with Barbara, Brownstone's manager. Even though it was quite out of the way, the venue itself was beautiful, and Barbara gave us confidence that she could take care of business.

    Then the pandemic hit--and our wedding was delayed for a year. But we stuck with Brownstone, and boy, are we glad we did.

    Prior to our wedding night, we had never seen Brownstone at night (only in photos)... but actually seeing it at night, it was absolutely magical, and more beautiful than we could have imagined.

    The night went flawlessly--from the ceremony in the courtyard, to the sunset shots, to dinner under the lights, to desserts and dancing at Bridal Falls. We had guests with kids, so we ordered the Kids Package, which included a bouncy castle, face painting, and pizza for the little ones, and they loved it. Barbara made sure everything was taken care of, and it absolutely was.

    Thank you Brownstone, and Barbara, for a magical night that we will remember forever.

    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.

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.
