McGuirk/Parker wedding 9-24-22

We had our wedding on Saturday, September 24th at Gardencourt. This venue was absolutely beautiful. We had the ceremony outside and the reception inside. Trish at Gardencourt was very helpful along the way. We did several walkthroughs with her and she even suggested our wonderful wedding coordinator, Debbie, at Weekend Wedding Warriors. Trish was always prompt in replying to emails. The venue is at a great location with plenty of parking. We were able to pay for extra hours to be able to get our hair and makeup done at this location.

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!
