    10/10 recommend!

    I cannot say enough good things about having a wedding at the botanical gardens. From the moment we met AmyRae, she walked us through everything from start to finish. During covid, she was honest about how everything would be and kept it real with us the entire time. That was incredibly important since we were hearing horror stories about other venues during the year. They were continuously accommodating and very understanding with everything happening, and wanted whatever we wanted while giving us multiple options of how to keep our wedding day as normal as possible. And it was everything we could have asked for and more. I will endlessly recommend the gardens for any event, they are so genuine with their customers and strive to ensure any event is above and beyond of what is asked. Any questions I had, AmyRae was there to answer them right away! And the pictures you鈥檒l get at the gardens are absolutely breathtaking!!! Thank you for being a part of our day and being a huge help with making our wedding day perfect!

    The gardens were beautiful for a wedding ceremony!

    The Botanical Gardens was a beautiful place to have our wedding ceremony. We decorated with flower petals going down the aisle and flowers on the structure. We were originally supposed to have our ceremony in June 2020, but it was rescheduled to October 2020. Amy Rae was easy to work with and helped us with our changes. Our wedding was originally supposed to be on a Saturday and when it was moved to a Sunday (due to vendor availability) they had me sign a new contract where I paid a lesser amount due to having the ceremony on Sunday. They did a good job with the rehearsal the day before, and it was nice knowing that if weather did not cooperate, we could have our ceremony indoors. It was cool that guests had the opportunity to go inside to the gardens after our ceremony. We got beautiful pictures on the grounds of the Botanical Garden and inside.

We recently had the privilege to work at the Buffalo and Erie Country Botanical Gardens for a wedding, and we have to share a couple things about our experiences working there. Firstly, what a beautiful venue to have a wedding at, so much character in the building and so beautiful, it's definitely not your typical banquet hall. Aside from that, not only was their staff accommodating before our event, ensuring the coordination and timing of everything with us in the weeks prior to the wedding, but also throughout the entire night they were world class! We hope to be be able to do more events at the Botanical Gardens as they really made us feel welcome and ensured a spectacular night for the Bride and Groom!
