Loved DJing at Jennifers Garden!
Recently DJed a fantastic wedding at Jennifers Garden. Well maintained outdoor grounds for ceremony and spacious inside...even in these Covid times! As a vendor I usually find 1 or 2 drawbacks, but everything was perfect from start to finish, no issues whatsoever...such a relief! Dedicated/hardworking/kind staff, and managers around whenever I had questions. They also did a great job with adhering to guidelines and being conscious of state regulations. Cant forget great food too! 5 of 5 stars!!! Hope to be back soon! -TimSent on 09/02/2020

Jennifer’s Garden was the perfect venue for our wedding! Deb is amazing to work with! She made sure to have everything perfect for us, and made planning a wedding super easy as she had an answer for every question I had. The organization of Jennifer’s Garden took away a lot of the stress I thought I would have. Also, our guests are still raving on how good the food was! I highly recommend Jennifer’s Garden for any event!Sent on 09/02/2020

Jennifer's Garden is an excellent venue!!!
Jennifer's Garden went above and beyond our expectations! We were planning a 90th birthday celebration from out of state and it was easier than if we had been in the same town. The food was excellent and presented with style. The staff was friendly and always asking if we needed something. They were very flexible and really listened to what we wanted for our mother. The staff even provided extra touches that we hadn't asked for to make our party complete. We can't thank them enough for a FANTASTIC job!!Sent on 05/30/2019
