    Best day ever thanks to Team Jardines

    My husband and I had a great experience working with Bly and the Jardines team. We had a July wedding and the venue was gorgeous! Our guests all told us they loved the food and continued to comment on how beautiful the space was. Bly was organized and did a great job keeping things moving according to plan on the wedding day. I did not have to worry about anything on my wedding day which was a huge relief. I highly recommend Jardines for your wedding!!

    PERFECT is all the words I have left

    We hosted our wedding here October 26th this year and all I can say is that the day was perfect!!!! Bly and her team killed it 100%!!!!! The attention to details, the amount of love that goes into making sure our day went perfect was...I have no words!! The staff was very professional, the food was delicious, and our guests said "they've never been to a wedding like this, it was beautiful" the jardin does seem to have the dinner area and dancing area a bit separate but our guests LOVED the fact that they could come and chill away from the dancing and get back to it when they wanted to. We loved our perfect day thanks to this amazing team! We love you guys & I hope that we will see you guys again (I have three sisters still ;) )

    My Dream Wedding

    Our wedding was on 9/15/19. Sorry this is so late!
    From start to finish we enjoyed working with Bly & team. They were so flexible and worked with all of our desires and preferences for our wedding. It was very helpful that Bly has everything under control and was an expert in planning our event and executing it with her team. We had the continental menu for food and it was excellent, even our guests were talking about how good it was for weeks after our wedding.
    One of the things we appreciated most was how much Bly and her team did for us. They fully set everything up and did all the teardown, and everything in between. We had no worries except to enjoy our day. Bly was super chill but had everything under control and was well organized. Our wedding day went fantastic, and we owe a large portion of that to the venue and the team that helped. If we can go back in time we would not change a thing! Thank you so much Bly and Jardines de San Juan
