    Realize that if it rains there is a backup greenhouse that can be used but only up to 150 guests. Otherwise, the garden is beautiful.

    Leading up to the day we were able to get in and look at the area free of charge, our photographer was able to see exactly what she needed as well. It poured during our rehearsal so we used the indoor space to practice and it worked out great. The day of there is a small cubby in the main lobby that the bride and bridesmaids can stay in to "hide" while guests and groom go into the gardens. They were very helpful getting things set up and letting us use their tables and lacy tablecloths the day of!
