    Finding a venue for a destination wedding was a bit challenging. We wanted an outdoor wedding and we had never been to Kauai. Not seeing a venue in person was a bit worrisome. But once we saw pictures of Ntbg Allerton garden, we fell in love. Gwen was great, friendly and responsive. She took the time to tell us as much information as possible. She respondeed back via email within a day whenever we had questions. She also sent us more pictures and videos to let us get a better idea of the venue. We are very happy to have picked this beautiful place. There's so much space and you get the whole place to yourself. Our guests complimented how beautiful and perfect it was. You see the water in the background and you have a lot of greenery and flowers. This venue describes Kauai very well. You'll have to book all the vendors, but it makes the wedding more personal. Everything went smoothly!

    We definitely recommend having your wedding at NTBG.

    We had such a wonderful experience with Gwen and the NTBG throughout the entire planning experience and event itself, we truly couldn’t be happier. We had to change our venue from the big valley to the visitors center 2 days before the wedding due to earlier flooding, something that could’ve been very stressful, but it was so smooth and Gwen so accommodating and helpful. Our wedding was gorgeous, the grounds were gorgeous, and Gwen is great. This venue was so perfect for us and helped make our dream an even better than we could have ever imagined reality. We can’t wait to visit NTBG for years to come as our special, happy place <3

    This was such a hidden gem of a wedding location that the first time I saw it, I knew it was where my sister should have her wedding. It provided an intimate yet open venue for our friends and family to come together and celebrate her beautiful day. Gwen was nothing short of amazing and answered our questions from beginning to end. She went above and beyond her duties to ensure my sisters day was special. Happy to say we were the very first wedding on the lanai and I am sure we will not be the last. Thank you NTBG and Gwen for providing such an unforgettable memory.

    The National Tropical Botanical Garden is a photographer's dream come true. The foliage is lush and secluded with a gorgeous private waterfall just a short walk away. Everything is beautiful and makes you feel like you're on the set of Jurassic Park. Gwen is sweet, professional, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend for both weddings and private portrait sessions.
