    Vendor Turned Family Friend

    Our wedding experience at Sonnenberg Gardens was packed with fond memories even given that it unfolded during COVID. The event planners at Sonnenberg are the best! From being our champion during the scheduling and rescheduling gauntlet (due to COVID), to being so generous with their time to get to know us, they made the whole experience so wonderful. By the time of the wedding, they became close family friends. They knew us and our story so well, they were able to make a very personal sign that greeted our guests at the door. That definitely brought a tear to my eye when I saw it. They saw to every detail and were a warm, helpful and friendly presence during the event.
    The venue was stunning - the gardens were so gorgeous and the mansion veranda was such a lovely location for drinks and appetizers. We had our reception in the mansion and it was so lovely. It was a wonderful mix of stately, impressive, warm and inviting. The gardens provide so many beautiful backdrops for jaw-dropping wedding photos. A delightful benefit of having the wedding at Sonnenberg is that our guests were able to tour the gardens at any point during the day. So many of our friends are using photos taken in the gardens at our wedding in their Christmas cards this year.
    We highly recommend Sonnenberg Gardens as an unforgettable and in-every-way wonderful wedding venue.

    Highly recommend

    If you are looking for a unique venue close to home…look no further! Sonnenberg Gardens was exactly what we were looking for in a wedding venue! The staff made our special day go so smoothly and kept us all on track! Kris was so helpful during every important minute. I wish had more time to take more pictures of all of us on our big day but everyone was truly great with keep everything together and on time. Never did I feel rushed or pressured to do anything. I was so pressed and plan to visit every year moving forward to celebrate our special day. Another super cute touch they did was give us complimentary wine with wine glasses which I thought was such a cute touch :) highly recommend this venue to anyone! Big or small wedding day!
