    Beautiful and Perfect for our Garden Wedding

    Norfolk Botanical Gardens was the most perfect wedding venue we could have imagined. They responded quickly when we contacted them for a tour, and were able to see us that coming weekend. We were taken on a golf cart ride through the gardens to see the different ceremony spots available in the package we were interested in. After we booked, we were given a year’s membership to the gardens, which we definitely took advantage of! This place is beyond gorgeous! The weeks leading up to the event, the garden staff was so helpful in ironing out the final details and answering any questions I could think of. On the day of our wedding, we were provided a classroom each for the bride and groom to get ready in. These rooms were very spacious and had a mirror and clothes rack so we could finish getting ready. With rain in the forecast, we had to make a rain call by 4pm, and when we decided we still wanted to be outside, they made sure there were mats put down on the aisle so I wouldn’t have to walk through mud. After the ceremony, Lena was super helpful in following us around with our photographer on the golf cart to make sure we had a ride back to cocktail hour when we were ready. The week after the event, when we went to open our cards, we saw there was even a congratulations card from the garden staff, which was such a sweet thing to do. Everyone commented on how beautiful everything was. If you are looking for a gorgeous garden wedding, NBG is definitely the perfect venue!

    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.
