Love this place!

I recently had the wedding of my dreams at Grounds For Sculpture, a stunning sculpture garden that provided the perfect backdrop for our special day. From the moment we arrived, I knew that we had made the right choice in selecting this venue. I have been coming here since I have been in High School for class trips so this place has a big spot in my heart.
The outdoor setting was absolutely breathtaking, with beautiful sculptures and lush greenery creating a magical atmosphere. The staff at GFS were incredibly helpful and accommodating, working closely with us to ensure that every detail was just right. They truly went above and beyond to make our day special. We worked with Nicole and many others who were very communicative and extremely helpful during this process.
One of the highlights of our wedding was the food at the Rats Restaurant! Our guests are still raving about the unique flavors and beautiful presentation of the dishes. The service was also impeccable, with the staff ensuring that everyone was comfortable and had everything they needed throughout the evening. We worked closely with Lindsey who helped us with creating the menu and set up!

Be transported to a serene and beautiful Shangri-La

Hosting our wedding at Grounds for Sculpture and Rats was an absolutely unforgettable experience. Lindsey, our event coordinator, was a dream to work with from start to finish. She went above and beyond, connecting us with amazing vendors, sharing creative ideas that had worked well in other weddings, and expertly guiding us through the tasting process. The entire venue is simply magical, transporting you to a serene and beautiful Shangri-La. When you add in all of the people you love, it becomes a truly special place. We cannot recommend this venue enough, and we are so grateful to the entire team for making our vision come to life, and for serving up such delicious meals that our guests are still talking about. Thank you for making our wedding day absolutely perfect!

Just a Wonderful Place

Like many of the other reviewers, we chose Grounds for Sculpture because it's a special place for us. Although event planning during the pandemic was challenging, with changing regulations and safety precautions, the grounds staff were flexible and helpful. Their recommendations for vendors were worth their weight in gold, their guidance for the rehearsal ceremony and on the day of the event was much appreciated, and the day turned out perfect.
