Amazing Experience at The Garden Room

Saxon Manor was an absolute pleasure to work with for my wedding. We wanted something very particular and knew anyone we worked with would probably struggle to meet our expectations. Not only did Saxon Manor give us the Halloween wedding of our dreams, they exceeded our expectations! I would recommend the coordinator Jenn for anyone looking at this venue. She was so responsive and just as excited for the big day as we were. She went above and beyond for us- from buying us mini pumpkins, huge pumpkins, martini glasses, dealing with the florist when we had hiccups, to finding little Halloween decor. I cannot recommend her enough!!! The day wouldn’t have been the same without her.

The Best day of my Life!

Our wedding was on 10/14/2023 in the Garden room. We had about 80 guests and it was the most beautiful and wonderful time. All of the vendors I got through Saxon were absolutely amazing.
My Coordinator, Linda, worked so hard to make everything beautiful and even better than I had pictured. We had a bridesmaids dress disaster, and she had shout wipes for us. I left my bouquet in the brides suite and she sprinted to grab it for me before I walked down the aisle into the most elegant ceremony area.
Everything was set up and taken down for us. My family was able to relax and enjoy the entire wedding without worrying about doing any preparations. On top of it all, the food was phenomenal, my cake was so amazing, the DJ (DJ Beezy) was complimented by all of my guests all night long. All of the vendors I never would have had if I did not go through Saxon Manor. I could not recommend a place enough. All of my guests keep coming back to ask me “how in the world did you find this place?!?” And telling me how magical this venue was. I have to agree.

The Shabby Chic Wedding Barn is the best place for a wedding!

The Venue package was the easiest thing I could have done! The wedding coordinator that they assigned me was amazing and all of the vendors that they recommended were awesome as well. I would definitely recommend!
