Wedding of my Dreams

I had my 150 person wedding at the conservatory, and I couldn't have asked for a more magical wedding. The staff at the conservatory was absolutely wonderful. I felt so secure knowing I had such an amazing team working with me. Lily was excellent! It was literally the best place to have a wedding in my opinion and I feel lucky that I had the wedding that I did. By the way, that negative review below is not what my experience was. Their responsiveness over email was excellent.

Simply Stunning!

I recently coordinated a wedding hosted at the Conservatory of Flowers. Of course, the venue is a total SF icon. The beauty indoors is a great backdrop for photos. The couple chose to have dinner on the Lawn and dessert and dancing inside their Orchid Pavilion. It all turned out beautifully. The venue team was so responsive and helpful, before, during, and after the wedding. I was great to have such a large team onsite during the event. I can鈥檛 wait to wor another wedding at the Conservatory of Flowers!

The team at the Conservatory of Flowers is the best events team we have ever worked with. Hands down. No other venue has been as kind, thoughtful or accommodating. After doing one set of events with them, we decided we wanted to be working with them several times a year.

Seriously, we have so much gratitude for this team. They are really responsive, empathetic and totally on top of their game.

With love,
