Lorraine is the best wedding planner

I found out about the open house the garden ballroom has in the beginning of the year. Decided to check it out and it was a beautiful venue. Lorraine works with you and makes your vision happen. My experience was smooth, and she listens to your needs. She did such an amazing job with planning, decorating, etc. They even have an on site bridal suite big enough for the bride and family to get ready. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would. Definitely worth every penny!

Do not look any further!

The Garden Ballroom is perfect for the couple that is looking for less stress on their wedding planning. Lorraine is amazing and takes care of every little detail. Their team is so professional and know the answers to all of your questions! Their all inclusive package is perfect as you only need to worry for just a couple of things, everything else, they got you covered! We had a blast on our wedding day! Would not have chosen any other venue over them! Recommend 1000 times to any couple that is going to get married!

Genuinely Amazing Venue

This review is long overdue! I have some serious things to say about this venue!

Out of all the countless venues I visited, I did not find any other like them. I ended up deciding on going with the Garden Ballroom and I will never regret my decision. The whole staff and other vendors attached to the Garden Ballroom are fair and just genuine people.

Decor 10/10

The decor was way more than I would ever expect Lorraine to do. She really cares about your big day and for the price of decor this wonderful you can't beat it. I put photos in this review for your clarification. We had a day just on decor planning and she spoke on how through the day until she slept at night Lorraine researched to give us the best Tangled-themed wedding she could. She really did it. If you are looking for any theme type of wedding she is the person to see. I believe Lorraine is wanting to do more wedding planning outside of her venue too if your looking for a good wedding planner.

Staff 10/10

Everybody who works for Lorraine and her family really does their part in making your day special. The staff makes sure the Bride and Groom are not stressed and with all Lorraine's planning, you do not have to worry about a thing and just enjoy your wedding day. I had no problems and even talked up a storm with many of the staff at the wedding.

Planning 10/10

Lorraine always has a plan and will spend countless hours with you to make sure everything is to your liking. She gives your the layout and everything that will go down on your wedding day. Then she takes the mantle and handles everything planning-wise so the Bride and Groom don't have to touch a finger. I was thinking about helping with my wedding but after working with Lorraine I wouldn't have it any other way.

Dream Wedding 10/10

My wife and I had a dream wedding. It was a beautiful tangled-themed wedding and everything from the decor, the music, the food, and the ambiance of the venue itself, we got to experience that dream wedding. Every detail was perfectly planned, yes weddings have little hiccups here and there but those were at the fault of my family but any problem was quickly and surely dealt with without me having to worry as the Groom.

Vendors 10/10

All the Vendors recommended with the venue were also cheap and only cared about your special day than making a quick buck. From the Garden Ballroom to the Vendors they are very kind people who really do care and will put hours of their time and even extra meetings/visits to make sure your wedding was everything you dreamed. I will put a few below due to them being better than any I could find online. Deenice Productions: Dee is a great videographer and honestly loved the video. Gonzalez Lugo Photo: Maryel and Alfredo will always be remembered and Kim and I will definitely hang with them outside of the wedding. They are Grade A photographers and I do not thinking you can find many photographers like them that really know how to make your wedding day a whole lot of fun! They really know how to make you laugh! Next Level Entertainment LLC: Melvin was another amazing pick! Great DJ! He cares about your choices, he really knows his music, and he loves what he is doing! Highly recommend his business.

Overall Review 50/50

If you are looking to have a wedding book it here! I don't have anything else to say! Maybe look at our wedding photos and see just how amazing it looked. It was honestly as magical as it looks!

Thank you for reading!
