My husband and I tied the knot at Rockledge Gardens in November and it was a genuine dream come true! The space is absolutely divine and the staff is incredible. We found out about this wonderfully vibrant and inviting venue at a bridal show after speaking with Liz. From that moment forward she was instrumental in helping us achieve our perfect day. Through her partnership with Rent Your Events we were able to secure tables, seating, and linens which made planning tremendously more easy. She also helped us find affordable special event insurance which gave us peace of mind so that we could relax and enjoy our celebration. Her support and involvement throughout the whole process was superb.Sent on 01/13/2018
With respect to the space, in a word, the grounds were enchanting. Our wedding felt truly surreal and our guests were in awe of the striking beauty at every turn. For our intimate gathering of about 40 guests, the layout of the grounds played a huge role in the success of our evening. After having our ceremony under the archway on the lawn, our guests were able to be seated immediately for the reception in the pavilion. Having the kitchen and bar space made things seamless for our caterers. One of my favorite things, though, was having the fire pit.
Before our wedding I had admired pictures of other couples' at the Gardens and was always impressed to see how different each appeared. The space is so well designed; it truly becomes the canvas for any couple's theme.

Backyard wedding vibes
We love the feel of a backyard wedding that Rockledge Gardens has! The staff is amazing and will work with you every step of the way. They are very flexible about vendors and so much is included in the package that it's extremely affordable. Would 100% still book here if I did it all over again. There are so many beautiful features all over the place and the relaxed vibe of the venue makes for a beautiful wedding.Sent on 12/26/2018
The only thing to be aware of, this is not a super private venue. The bridal get ready area is also the dedicated office and there were customers walking around during our first look and until about an hour into our wedding. It's nothing that bothered us and they made that all clear when we booked, just be aware that you should have some people with you to shoo away nosy customers (one almost walked into the middle of our first look lol, awkward)

A Dream Come True Venue!
From our first tour, into our planning, and throughout our wedding – our experience with Rockledge Gardens, Liz, and her staff was pleasant, professional, and straightforward! I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone! Liz has outstanding communication, organization skills, and planning techniques that gave us much needed comfort as we planned our special day. In many ways, she went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be – and it truly was! The venue itself is AMAZING! The venue is well kept, GORGEOUS, and extremely functional and convenient! There honestly is not one thing I would have changed with our Rockledge Garden experience!Sent on 01/11/2019

We highly recommend Rockledge garden to our brides, it is the perfect setting for a romantic, under the stars wedding!
Rockledge Gardens has been a special place in our area for as long as I can remember! It is made even more special now that they have added the event pavilion named for the founders of this wonderful place. When we had an opportunity to have our first styled shoot that expressed our personal style, we went to Rockledge Gardens. The location is breath taking! There is nothing else like it in our area. You owe it to yourselves to check out this lovely place.
We had the pleasure of working with Liz and the Rockledge Gardens staff during a beautiful wedding in the garden. The staff was helpful and accommodating, and the venue was exquisite! If you are truly looking for a unique venue this one has it all.
