Perfect! Great garden wedding location

My ceremony at the gardens was EVERYTHING I could have ever hoped for. It does cost more than your typical church wedding, but the service and pictures you can get out of booking this location makes it worth the money for sure.

Lauren is great, so kind, and so eager to make your day special. I highly recommend Friendahip Botanic Gardens for your wedding!!

The location was beautiful, however the people there were not very professional. I understand they do a lot of weddings, but they couldn't remember our (the groom and myself) names. It was raining and our pastor and his wife are disabled and were allowed to drive down to the ceremony area because they couldn't walk. They left ruts in the grass because it was slippery and they couldn't get the tires to grab and after the ceremony my new husband and I were confronted by one of the employees at the gardens that the pastor left ruts in the grass and she would get fired for letting him drive down there. Not exactly something that we should have been dealing with on our wedding day, because we had NOTHING to do with that. It was her that let him drive down there.

After the ceremony we were taking pictures. The guys were taking shots so the girls were staying under the tent to stay out of the rain. One of the employees said there was another wedding and asked us to leave the tent.

I (the bride) had to walk up the muddy hill in my wedding shoes because no one came to drive me up. Did I mention it rained on my wedding?

The cite was beautiful, the people very unprofessional.
