Absolutely beautiful & incredible!

My husband and I have been longtime members of the Garden, so when it was time for us to choose a venue there wasn鈥檛 a doubt in our mind where we would want to get married. I emailed the weddings department and within minutes I had a response answering all my questions and to schedule a venue tour. We were greeted by the lovely Giada and she gave us a wonderful tour of our options of where the ceremony could take place, as well as more to know about the English Lavender package we chose! Lena was so helpful and kind during our final detail appointment, even giving us a special ride on the golf cart to the ceremony site and we were so appreciative! Wedding day, the moment I stepped out of the car I was greeted by Chloe on a golf, she was so prepared and had me hidden in the trees within minutes!! All of the ladies I spoke with were absolutely incredible in every single email, and even more so the day of. I am so happy we chose NBG, now we can go back to visit our ceremony site whenever we would like. Thank you SO much to Lena, Chloe and Giada and any of you special ladies I didn鈥檛 mention by name.

September 30, 2023 Wedding at NBG

Our wedding at the Norfolk Botanical Garden was an absolute dream come true and it's all thanks to this breathtaking venue at the Butterfly Garden and Baker Hall. This is where my then fianc茅 and now husband proposed. Proposal happened during a Christmas Light display at NBG. We decided we had to have our wedding there. We were captivated by the natural beauty that surrounded us. And our guests were able to visit the butterfly house.

The Norfolk Botanical Garden served as the perfect backdrop for our special day. The meticulously manicured gardens, vibrant blooms created a picturesque setting that felt like something out of a fairy tale. Our guests were in awe of the atmosphere, and we were constantly showered with compliments about the venue.

What truly sets this venue apart, though, is the impeccable service and attention to detail. The staff at the Norfolk Botanical Garden went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day went off without a hitch. They were accommodating, responsive, and incredibly helpful throughout the planning process, ensuring that every aspect of our celebration was flawless.

The versatility of this venue is also worth noting. They offer a variety of stunning locations within the garden to suit your style and guest list.

Our wedding day at the Norfolk Botanical Garden was a day filled with beauty, love, and cherished memories. If you're looking for a venue that combines natural splendor with exceptional service, I wholeheartedly recommend this hidden gem. Our hearts are forever grateful to the Norfolk Botanical Garden for making our wedding day truly remarkable.
