    Beautiful location with an incredible price

    We had our wedding ceremony here and it was perfect! Not only was it like 70% cheaper than using a wedding venue, but it was so beautiful. There were already beautiful flowers and greenery everywhere so I did not have to worry about a florist, and we had so many gorgeous built in photo spots between the outdoor spaces and the greenhouses. The event staff were so kind and helpful and made the process painless for us. They even had a event coordinator on site for the event to help with set-up and directions so that we did not have to worry about it day-of. If you are a thrifty bride and are looking for a way to save money without sacrificing location, this is such a great spot!
