    Perfect wedding venue!

    I cannot speak highly enough of CJ's!! It was seriously the best decision we made during our wedding planning process. They just took care of EVERYTHING. Our planner, Sidney, was a dream to work with and made sure we had the most perfect day. She was quick to respond and answered all my annoying questions. She was amazing!! I cannot thank CJ's enough for giving us the PERFECT wedding day. I know picking a venue can be so scary and overwhelming but CJ's is truly worth every single penny. Forever grateful!!

    Incredible

    My husband and I could not be more grateful that we found CJ's. Every single detail was taken care of and thought of for us. Our planner Sidney Darby was absolutely incredible. We can not speak highly enough of Sidney. She made sure everything was taken care of leading up to the big day as well as the day of. We had our wedding 2 weeks ago and everyone is still talking about how it was the best wedding they had been to. The team at CJ's makes the garden venue magical.

    10 stars for service and knowledge

    I would give 10 stars if I could!!! It is overwhelming to reflect on what a perfect process and wedding day we had with CJ's Off the Square. We had the honor of working with both Allison and Brette who care so much professionally, but most importantly, personally. CJ's is without a doubt a very well oiled machine- their planning process is streamlined and organized. We always felt like we knew exactly what step we were on and what to-dos were coming up. This made the entire planning process stress free and easy! Brette and Allison are true experts in everything weddings! They were true consultants with us and made several amazing recommendations that elevated our whole wedding. They are timely and knowledgable in answering *all* of my emails with random questions that would pop in my head. The day of our wedding was genuinely perfect. They thought of every single detail and the vision we dreamed of only came to life because of them. Every vendor we used spoke so highly of CJ's and it became clear how respected and admired they are in the wedding world. We are forever grateful for the experience we had with CJ's and it is a day we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
