My husband and I just got married at Celebration Gardens in January 2019. We visited the venue in May and had a tentative date in mind. Michael Thomas, the facility manager, put a courtesy hold on the date and said he would inform us if anyone else was interested in that date. We booked our date in June 2018.Sent on 02/18/2019
Throughout the entire planning process, Michael was extremely helpful. He replied very quickly to all my emails and offered many problem solving solutions along the way.
One of the added benefits of Celebration Gardens is the a la cart opinions with their services. You could plan everything (food, music, flowers, rentals, etc) through them or you can use outside vendors of your choice.
We outsourced a lot of our vendors but we did hire the bartender and helpers for the evening through the venue. All employees were professional and helpful throughout the evening.
The gardens are beautiful and very well kept. Even with a wedding in January, the flowers were in full bloom. The simple charm of the gardens is what won us over. You don't need many decorations of your own with the natural beauty.
It was an added bonus of having the fire pit accessible. The staff on premise for the evening handled everything related to the fire pit.
One of the added benefits of the garden are all the little areas that guests can choose to enjoy. Since the dance floor can be separate from the dinner area (we chose to use the ceremony lawn as the dinner space as well), the fire pit area, the inside space where we had our photo booth (mostly because it was cold) and coffee and tea. Each guest could find a place they felt comfortable.
The only headache I'd say is you have to hire your own lighting for the lawn area or bring in and put up your own. The gazebos are well lit but the lawn space will need some additional lighting.
We also used a helper/server who was employee through John Michael entertainment for our rehearsal dinner at our house and they were very helpful.
Our wedding was perfect and everything we had imagined it to be and it was mainly due to the helpfulness of Michael. He even allowed us to deliver a garden trellis a day early and keep it near the office building to help elevate the day of stress. Michael made the planning process less stressful for sure.
I would definitely hold another event here in the future!

Perfect garden venue!
This venue was absolutely perfect. Our wedding was a daytime, 50 guest, outdoor ceremony and reception, and while the area seemed small initially, there is much more to it than meets the eye. The staff was incredibly helpful and responsive to any questions I had. The space was gorgeous and versatile and the customization of packages was absolutely perfect! There are so many photo ops! I definitely recommend having your photographer walk through the WHOLE grounds with you to pick spots you absolutely can't miss before the day of, because there are some photos I didn't get to take and I wish I could! Highly recommend!
