    Liz was such a pleasure to work with and despite the misty rain, our wedding was GORGEOUS. We held our ceremony at the Butterfly garden gazebo, our cocktail hour at the Perennial fountain garden and our reception at the Baker Hall Terrace and it was all so beautiful. The staff took the extra step of making sure the ceremony site was not soggy for us to walk through (as best as they could) and took special care of my father who is mostly wheelchair bound, to ensure he did not struggle with getting where he needed to be. The staff worked well with the other vendors to determine if a last minute change was needed due to the weather, but it held out and our guests had an amazing time. I would definitely recommend booking early, especially if you want a fall wedding.

    We had a great experience with the Botanical Gardens. From our first tour, until the end of the wedding night, they were very friendly, professional, responsive and helpful. We could not have imagined a more beautiful location to get married and the day was amazing! Liz, was perfect, from everything the day of, to golf carting us around to the first look, ceremony and couples portraits. This is a great place to get married!

    The Norfolk Botanical Garden is easily one of the prettiest wedding venues in Virginia. The grounds are not only gorgeous and unique, but also beautiful year-round, which makes the Gardens perfect for weddings and receptions no matter the season! The coordination team is wonderful, and their highly dedicated and professional staff really care about service and quality. All-in-all, whether you are planning an intimate elopement or extravagant wedding affair, I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Norfolk Botanical Garden and the photographic merits of this beautiful venue!

    I love working with NBG! The venue is naturally magical because its beauty is paramount. The team that orchestrates these weddings at NBG are stellar and focused on ensuring the best event possible. The neatest thing, I believe is that these pictures are some of the best pictures I've ever seen! Natural beauty perfected and led by a wonderful team of professionals. Consider this venue! :)
