    Fell in Love with Garden Court on the first visit. Trisha Barr was a godsend. Her expertise and recommendations made our special date a great success.

    Wonderful Experience!

    We had a wonderful experience at Gardencourt! Trish gave us excellent advice and went well beyond what we expected as far as accommodating our wishes and needs. Most of our crowd were out of towners and found it so convenient to walk to Caldwell Chapel for the ceremony and then to Gardencourt for the reception. The caterers provided excellent food, drinks, and service. Our group filled Laws Lodge and enjoyed the open areas for visiting and playing board games. We were thrilled with everything and found the staff very helpful, friendly, and concerned that things went well for us. Thank you to all! Glenn Ridley

Classical Choice loves playing for weddings at Gardencourt. Lovely Victorian mansion and beautiful garden for ceremonies. This venue is so great, that it was the location for my daughters wedding.

Highland Chamber Players String Quartet Highland Chamber Players String Quartet Wedding Musicians

Gardencourt is probably the most classic wedding venue over the last four three decades in the entire area. It has beautiful outdoor settings for both large and small weddings, a grand porch area for after wedding cocktails, and then four ground level rooms of various sizes, but all elegant. We love the chance to perform here!
