    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.

    Excellent!

    Words cannot begin to describe how thankful and blessed we feel for Elmwood Gardens by Provence. We got married June 2, 2018 at this absolutely stunning venue. After our first visit, there was no doubt that this was the perfect place to start our forever with all our friends and family. They were so accommodating to our 380-count guest list (yes, you heard that right 380 people attended our wedding). Pam and Michael were the absolute best and their hospitality was undeniable from beginning to end. Anything we needed or had any questions about, they were there to help. Even though it was about 104 degree Texas weather, our wedding was a complete DREAM. We are still to this day getting compliments on how beautiful the venue was. Pam is a phenomenal chef and provided us with many and all options from cocktails & hors d’oeuvres to deserts and of course my requested mac & cheese bar. She took all suggestions and assured all expectations would be met. And they all definitely were. Everything from the decorations, dance floor, banquet hall to grooms/bridal cottage was so convenient and easy. They helped us check everything off our list. Helped with rentals and even picked them up and dropped them off for us. Every visit we had at the venue we felt at home.

    We were the first couple to get married at the brand new ceremony site, the Doors to Forever at the Trees of Faith. They showed us all the options available to have the ceremony at and even though this spot was in the beginning stages of being built, we knew this was the perfect spot. The two gorgeously large oak trees in the middle of the pasture was picture perfect. All of our visions came to life here. It was definitely an unforgettable night that our guests and especially us will never forget!

    That day was the most perfect, magical, best day yet and all thanks to Pam and Michael at Elmwood Gardens! We now have a lifelong friendship and will definitely stop by for a visit when can. If you are looking for the same experience as us then Elmwood Gardens is your place!
