We held our 8/5/11 wedding reception at Columbus Gardens and couldn't have been more pleased! The price was the best we found, and you really can't beat the bang you get for your buck. Most of the reception venues we looked at had lots of hidden fees (mainly renting things you'd think would be included but weren't). Not Columbus Gardens! Here the hall, food, cake, cake cutter, champagne flutes, linens, tables, chairs, silverware, napkins, centerpieces, maitre de, open bar, etc etc were ALL included in the price (a price that was lower than most we found for just the food and bar at other places!). The cake was unbelievably beautiful and delicious, and so was the food. We had the option to have whatever meal we wanted as the bride and groom, and we asked to have what we chose for our guests because it was just too good to be passed up on. Pat was a huge help throughout the planning process. Everything went off without a hitch. I really can't emphasize enough how pleased we were with the entire event - from planning to their flexibility and responsiveness, the service we and our guests received at the reception (they were so on the ball!), the food, the way they treated our vendors, etc. Columbus Gardens comes HIGHLY recommended by us! My brother is getting married in the next 2 years and after seeing how well our reception went they plan to have their reception here also!

Diane and the entire staff at Columbus Gardens were wonderful and such a pleasure to work with. Not only is this hall on the more affordable side (you only pay for the food/alcohol per head), but it is the perfect size for a wedding under 150 guests. They supplied the catering (you get tons of DELICIOUS food!!) cake (they work with the local Fenwick bakery), all linens, centerpieces (if you don’t want to bring/make them), tables, chairs, arch, and dishware. We had our ceremony there and it didn’t cost anything extra. Diane was my event coordinator and maitre de, and she couldn’t have been more polite, helpful, patient, and supportive! Planning a wedding yourself is stressful but having someone that experienced help you plan out your day and control the flow of events was an absolute blessing! If you are in doubt, schedule a tour! The hall doesn’t look like much from the outside but once you get inside it’s humungous! You have your choice of 3 different sized halls depending on your number of guests, a huge waiting area with big bathrooms, and a small bridal suite to get ready in. You also have the option of having your ceremony outside in a small field next to the building that is surrounded by trees and fenced off (we were going to have our ceremony outside but it had been raining ALLLLLLL week!), you would just be in charge of renting chairs and setting them up with a different company since they don’t usually perform outdoor ceremonies. That being said, I HIGHLY recommend this venue, especially for a budgeting bride. I couldn’t have been more happier with the turnout. Thank you guys for all of your hard work!!! ❤️
