Just Stunning

Our wedding at LGBG was one for the books. Looking back at photos, everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) was beautiful. The rose garden at 6pm is so pretty it looks like a movie. Our friends and family loved the venue too. Lots of parking, great reception spaces, optional outdoor and indoor venues. One of our friends loved it so much that they asked if they could wed there as well!

Lovely Micro Wedding on the Lake!

We had the most perfect micro wedding at the Streb Gazebo right on the lake! The package was so reasonably priced and the setting was perfect. Jaclyn and her team were so easy to work with from our first inquiry to the wedding day. We had the opportunity after the ceremony to take pictures anywhere in the Garden. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
