Our daughters wedding was hosted by Elmwood Gardens on June 4, 2021. Allow me to say, it had been a very long year for us due to Covid pushing dates back then followed by a venue cancellation due to excessive rain and flooding. It looked like my daughters wedding was not going to happen until I answered the phone and an angel on the other end said he could host my daughters wedding in 5 days. This is not a typo....5 days! We met with the owner, Michael, the next morning and we were amazed with his excitement and hospitality. He was so encouraging that my daughter would have the wedding of her dreams. The venue is amazingly beautiful and complimented my daughters boho style. Micheal went above and beyond to cater to our every need, and my daughters wedding was absolutely beautiful. He is a good man with an amazing talent in hospitality. If you are looking for a personal experience that reaches far beyond what today’s retail venues can offer, Elmwood Gardens will be your choice.Sent on 06/06/2021

Michael has been the absolute most amazing person in helping us get exactly what we want AND MORE for our perfect wedding day! He generally responds within just a couple of minutes when I have a question or even if I'm just saying hi and telling him something about my day. When I first received a message from him reguarding Elmwood Gardens, I immediately felt that he truly cared that we were able to achieve everything we dream of for the wedding. He was very understanding when we had to bring our son, Kye, to our tour of the venue and even included him in the conversation. Kye enjoyed acting like one of the adults and even started trying to take over for Michael, which he thought was adorable. Michael is extremely accommodating and caring. He checks on us to see how we are doing every week. He has simply been the most amazing person, without him, I would probably have to wait a couple of years for a ceremony or get married at a place I wasn't happy with. He has made the impossible, possible in our near future. A beautiful ceremony with a gorgeous reception and at a cost that doesn't have me hyperventilating. Thank you Michael for all you have done and continue to do to make my (our) dream wedding come to life.Sent on 07/10/2018
