Beautiful Venue and wonderful staff!
My daughter had her wedding and reception at Sonnenberg Gardens on May 25, 2019. My daughter was dealing with side effects from cancer treatment and so some special accommodations were made in the tent to provide her with an area where she could sit and receive guests. Their wedding was out by the pond and grotto. I cannot say enough about the job that Deb and her staff did. They bent over backward to allow us in early to decorate the day before, helped coordinate with the caterer, baker, florist and DJ. The wedding, as 1 guest said, was epic. I would recommend this venue over and over again.
Thank you to the Sonnenberg staff for making that day something they will always treasure.Sent on 10/11/2019

Beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony!
My husband and I booked our wedding ceremony at Sonnenberg Gardens on pretty short notice, when our original wedding venue closed in light of the pandemic. Kris, the event manager, was so incredibly helpful, kind, and flexible in working with us to plan our wedding! We had a small ceremony and cocktail hour at Sonnenberg and it was absolutely beautiful. It was the perfect setting for our ceremony, and the grounds are gorgeous for taking photos. We were lucky to have great weather, but also appreciated that there was a backup tented location in case of rain. I'm so glad that we had our wedding here.Sent on 10/08/2020

Beautiful & Easy Ceremony
We worked with Deb and Jennifer on a small, intimate wedding during August. We had a very unconventional and simple ceremony and they both were more than accommodating. They were responsible, helpful & enthusiastic from our first discussion to the final details on our special day. The weather was back & forth between thunderstorms and hot, sunny weather all day on our wedding, and Deb made us feel completely relaxed as we evaluated options. Our guests loved the gardens and the mansion as well. It's a beautiful place that everyone can enjoy & I would recommend it to anyone for any size wedding.Sent on 11/08/2019

Beautiful venue for Nolan's to cater at!
Sonnenberg Gardens is one of our favorite wedding photographic locations for ceremonies, receptions or just the pictures of the bride and groom. There are so many photographic locations in the different gardens and mansion, it makes each wedding unique.
Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion - what a fabulous place for a wedding or an "out of the box" corporate event! Beautiful surroundings, gracious staff - they understand the true meaning of "hospitality." I recommend this site very highly!
