    Our family would totally recommend the Chicago Botanic Gardens for any reception. The evening was flawless from start to finish. Our guests were welcomed to the English Garden for cocktails and then lead to the pavilion for a scrumptious dinner. The service was impeccable because the waiters were efficient and not intrusive to the wedding celebration. In addition we were thrilled with the high quality of all of the hard goods Culinary Landscape provided. Everyone fully enjoyed their meals and loved the beauty of the lighted gardens as the sun set. We did not receive one complaint the entire event

    We had our wedding at the Chicago Botanic Garden in May 2015. Connie and her staff were absolutely wonderful to work with. The gardens attention to every last detail, made the day the wedding of our dreams. I couldn't have imagined a more beautiful venue in the Chicago area.
