Shooting Star Gardens is an amazing location. The house is a beautiful Victorian house with a wraparound porch that is perfect for taking a first look photo. Every direction you look are gorgeous gardens that Marylou (the owner) clearly spends hours upon hours on. There are several different areas that can host a wedding here so you will have options if the lighting isn't right in one area or the flowers are blooming better in another area.
Marylou makes everything easy. We did not have a wedding planner but Marylou was there to give her ideas and extra direction for anything we needed on our big day.

Venue was breathtaking and it was perfect. Highly recommend looking at this venue for your wedding. We got married in August 2017 and all my guests had high compliments.

This is the most beautiful venue. The garden is perfectly maintained, there are amazing flowers everywhere, and the corner we chose to have the ceremony was so picturesque. A lot of the photos our guests took look genuinely professional because the settings were so gorgeous.
Marylou was a huge help. In the months leading up the wedding, she promptly responded to my many questions via both text and email. She met with my caterer and my day-of coordinator and gave them tours of the venue. On the day of, she spent far longer than the time expected of her. In fact, she was up late the night before pressing linens and when I arrived an hour early (which she okayed even though it wasn't within the allotted) she and an assistant were already out setting up chairs and tables.
In general, I found that Marylou was extremely dedicated to seeing that my vision for the day happened. She had a lot of expertise on how to handle logistics and make sure everything was actually doable, and then she did so much to help execute it on the day of. I was actually upset about the other review that mentioned she was uptight. I did not find this at all - and I think it's great she is considerate of the neighbors. Moreover, her caution ensures that the police don't get called and completely stop the party altogether.
The only thing that upset me was that I didn't know upfront that I had to buy wedding insurance. It cost about $150 which wasn't terrible, but it was just one more thing to pay for and the bills really added up.
Lastly, the bridal room and the reception tent are top notch. The bridal room is equipped with great lighting, four giant full-length mirrors, a bathroom, curtains for changing, a mini-fridge, and glasses for drinks! The tent has a great dance floor, the cutest lighting, and even fans built in to the ceiling. Marylou also has furniture like a bar and cake table which were very handy.
I would recommend this venue to anyone that wants an outdoor wedding.
