This was a perfect venue. Our guests loved the flow of the evening and how easy it was for them to go straight from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and into the reception. We were worried that the different rooms would make our guests feel separated or distant from the events, but it actually made everything feel super cozy and intimate. I would highly recommend this venue.Sent on 12/29/2016

I couldn't have asked for a better venue for my wedding. Everything came together beautifully. My husband actually found this venue and said he wanted to get married there so I went to check it out and fell in love. Highly recommend both Gardencourt and Caldwell Chapel!Sent on 02/02/2017

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.
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!
Gardencourt is not only gorgeous inside and out, but the staff is amazing to work with! We have done several events there, and Lisa and her team are always so helpful. Lisa takes each event personally and offers advice and insight that is unique to each client. You will not be disappointed when choosing Gardencourt as your venue!
