Guests are STILL talking about the beautiful venue

I am so happy that we chose the Gardens of Woodstock for our wedding. Everything is done thoughtfully and with great organization so that I (the bride) could have a smooth, easy day. We had the space from 10am-11pm, a 5pm-ish ceremony, and 7-ish dinner.

I highly recommend touring and booking early. We knew we wanted a Saturday event when we started looking in Aug 2022, and there were only 2 or 3 available for all of the 2023 season.

I loved that there are a variety of spaces to use. The gardens are amazing for pictures and guests to walk through for fresh air. The tent was comfortable all evening for dinner and dancing (in July heat). Guests have indoor and outdoor seating options during cocktail hour. The Bridal suite had space for lounging, hair and make-up, as well as drinks and food.

The owner, Mike, is also incredibly responsive. He helped us remember billing dates and contract information while promptly responding to questions that came up during planning.

Beverage package prices were comparable to other venues we had toured. The catering was from Noteable Events. It included many options to fit various budgets and our dinner was DELICIOUS.

The biggest difficulty we had was organizing our DJ set ups. He had 1 stand inside the tent for the reception and a second one for the ceremony and cocktail hour. We did have a small gap in music because his gear had to move after our ceremony to be heard clearly for cocktail hour.

A final thing to consider is that the venue requires driving to anything. Closest hotels are a few miles away, and there wasn't really late night options like bars for an after party, or late night fast food without driving 10-15 minutes into Woodstock or Crystal Lake.

Amazing, gorgeous venue!

The Gardens were absolutely gorgeous for our October wedding! So much color! The owner, Mike, is wonderful to work with. Very flexible, accommodating, and super nice. It’s also very convenient having the ceremony and reception at the same location. I would highly recommend this venue for anyone wanting a stunning outdoor wedding.

The estimated cost I spent includes open bar for 150 guests.

Dream venue for a dream wedding!

We had our wedding at the Gardens of Woodstock on 9/15/23, and I can't even begin to describe how amazingly perfect this venue was for our big day! If you are looking for an all in one venue space with absolutely everything to offer, this is it! From the beautiful ceremony space that will require little to no decorations of your own, to the cocktail hour space where guests can enjoy themselves both inside and outside, and finally to the spacious reception tent that you can make your own, this place has it all. And not to mention the gorgeous landscaped area with trees, a pond, and bridges that provide the perfect backdrop for pictures and an additional space for your guests to roam. From the beginning, Mike was friendly and so easy to work with answering all of our questions quickly and was accommodating to the details we wanted to make the day and space our own. The venue uses one designated caterer, Noteable Event Productions, which provides any type of food option you wish to have. We ended up doing three stations which had all the types and variety of food you can imagine. I can't even begin to count how many of our guests told us how absolutely amazing the venue and food were! My only disappointment was that I wished the hours from the start of the ceremony to the end of the reception were longer so we could soak more of the day in! And brides, please note that the bridal suite does not open until 10am, so if you have a larger bridal party and want pictures done before the ceremony you will have to do hair and makeup at a different space since there will not be enough time. Thank you so much again to Mike and the Gardens of Woodstock for making our wedding day one to remember between both us and all our guests!
