    we went with the gardens for our ceremony only my biggest problem was that on top of the fee to rent just the particular garden you had to go out and rent your own chairs because they don't have any to rent. Also making sure the fences were unlocked at the right time was also a little stressful seeing as there was another wedding scheduled in a neighboring garden to the one we got married in an hour after the start of our ceremony so parking was hectic as well

    McCrory Gardens offers something that no other venue in Brookings does -- multiple options in a beautiful garden to have your wedding ceremony! The gardens, the reception hall and the staff are all top-notch and a gorgeous option for your wedding or event. Even the patio surrounding the event hall glows at night with candles, guests and love. It's one of the most perfect indoor/outdoor venues in the state! Brookings is lucky to have an all-inclusive venue like McCrory Gardens for catering, tables & chairs, linens, staffing, and the gardens.
