The best wedding experience we could have ever asked for!

We had our wedding here in August 2022 with about 160 guests. Jardines de San Juan is an absolute hidden GEM! From start to finish, Bly made the entire process fun and seamless! She gave us great advice/recommendations throughout and all of the recommended vendors the venue works with are top notch. Incredibly professional and we were able to relax knowing everything was covered. We can't rave enough about how gorgeous the venue is and how great Bly and her team were! THANK YOU!!

Stunning Setting

Having our wedding at Jardines de San Juan was the best decision ever! When my now wife and I went to tour the venue for the first time with Bly we knew that it was a definite yes! I love Spanish style architecture and cacti while Brittany loves roses and flowers. It was amazing to find a place that encompasses all of the things that we love. Another huge factor was the fact that we got to say 'I Do’ with Mexican food which is our absolute favorite thing. Our guests loved the food and thought the venue was stunning. Working with Bly was wonderful as she is extremely knowledgeable in the wedding industry and had so many helpful recommendations to share. We met with her several times to discuss and fine tune the details of our special day. On more than one occasion we would come to her with several pages of questions about various things and she would have answers to all of them! Her team was also really detailed and provided exceptional service. If you are looking for a venue for your wedding we cannot recommend Jardines de San Juan highly enough! For one fee you get the venue, coordination, DJ and catering! Reasonable prices, incredible food, phenomenal service are what you will get if you have your wedding here. You will not be sorry!

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!!
