While visitors will get the convenience of being near these cities, they will also be able to enjoy a taste of nature during their stay.

Not only are wedding ceremonies and receptions welcome on the property, but also bridal showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners.

Facilities and Capacity
The highlight of this venue is truly the gardens. Many decades and tens of thousands of dollars went into creating the gardens, which are filled with flowers ranging from lilacs to roses to azaleas. In fact, there are nearly 2,000 different perennials found throughout the gardens that you will be able to enjoy. Surrounding the garden are 160 acres made up of a two-acre lake and a forest. For the actual ceremony or reception, there is a wedding pergola surrounded by annuals and hanging baskets that you can use or you can host your wedding on the half-acre lawn site. If you plan on using the garden site and inclement weather occurs, you are more than welcome to move your wedding inside to the ballroom. This indoor site can comfortably accommodate up to 200 guests. It is air-conditioned and heated so it can be used all year long. The wedding party will be able to celebrate and create memories on the spacious dance floor. If you need a private place to prepare, there is an elegant dressing room available on the property. Additionally, for the convenience of you and your guests, there is a total of one acre of parking space available.
To ensure you have everything you need to host the wedding of your dreams, the Gardens of Sunshine Hollow will provide you with items such as tables, chairs, and linens. The team can also provide you with items like a bubble machine to add a whimsical touch to your wedding. To ensure everything runs smoothly, the team does offer both setup and cleanup services. Shuttle services can also be arranged for you and your guests.

Very reasonable price and great people. You wont find a better place unless you spend a lot of money. The gardens make the place beautiful and minimal decorating, if any, is required.Sent on 05/10/2015
