    My husband and I chose the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden as our final venue for our wedding ceremony after looking at least 5 other venues. The Japanese garden is so beautiful and serene complete with ducks and koi fish; all of my guests complimented how gorgeous it is and thought that we paid a fortune for booking this venue when really the pricing is very reasonable. Janette is the director of the garden and her staff were super helpful on the day of our wedding and did an excellent job with calming my nerves down and coordinating the event as well as working well with my vendors. Even though it rained on the day of my wedding, our wedding pictures were so beautiful and I love how it captured the beauty of the garden. I highly recommend every future couple who loves nature and scenery to get married here.

    The staff we dealt with at the Earl Burns Japanese Garden were both super friendly and professional. If we ever had any questions they were answered very quickly.

    As we live in Ireland it made it quite hard for us to organise and plan our day however they made our day so much easier and pain free.

    For any couples looking for a venue which can cater for both large and small weddings (ours being 15 people total) with a very unique feel, the Earl Burns Japanese Garden is a perfect fit.

    Words cannot describe how wonderful our wedding turned out at the the Japanese Gardens. Everything came out fabulous! The Japanese Gardens is a beautiful venue, with its lush landscaping, pretty waterfall, spectacular koi pond - a fairytale place for a wedding. And the staff at the JG is stellar too - everyone was so nice, professional and helpful. Whenever I had a question, they were quick to respond, always got back to my emails right away. On the day of our wedding, I didn't have to worry about a thing - they took care of everything, and it was so well gone. All of our guests were so impressed with the JG, everyone has told us how beautiful our wedding was. For everything that was included in our wedding, the JG is definitely worth 10 times the value. Thank you to everyone at the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Gardens - you made my wedding perfect.
