Great Space Great Staff
Shimeyka, the events manager at the gardens, was extremely helpful in getting our event planned and taken care of at the Botanical Garden. We used the Discovery Classrooms for our reception and the Space was the perfect size, very clean, and perfectly set up to accommodate our guests! The Event Staff on hand was very helpful and knowledgeable of the AV systems in the Room. I will definitely look forward to our next event with SABOTSent on 08/29/2019

My people loved this venue!!
I loved visiting SABOT already, so hosting my wedding reception in the conservatory there just made sense. I could not have picked a better venue!! They are so accommodating, and Shimeyka gave me resources that helped me plan the party myself (which I was so nervous to do)! Everyone loved it. All the vendors and all the guests. Even people who weren’t invited have been messaging me asking where we went! Our photos from that night are stunning. In mid June my Mom kept saying it would be too hot, but at night it was just fine. The space accommodated catering, an Airstream Bar, an LED Dance Floor, Photobooth, Video Presentation and all the works! This was in every way the most perfect venue- and will be even more fun for me to visit now!Sent on 06/30/2019

We've had the pleasure of creating stunning one of a kind invitations for several brides using this facility. We have heard nothing but great reviews about them...I would recommend calling them sooner than later to tour before your special day is all booked up!
Such a beautiful venue with many options to choose from is just one of many reasons I love this venue. Then add an amazing staff that will help and assist the couple, wedding party, family, and myself is a huge added bonus! Working with Shimeyka throughout every wedding makes my job easier and so much fun. She is wonderful! Day of I also had Pricella there helping in any way she could which is a huge help. Overall an amazing venue and Staff! Love them!
Beautiful place to get married, Love taking pictures there.
