    The BEST Wedding Venue

    Our wedding was at the Garden City Hotel on 6.4.22. It was the most incredible day, and we were so impressed with the GCH each step of the way. We had the pleasure of working with Jerry, who was kind, always very responsive, and went above and beyond to ensure that we were supported from day 1 to the wedding day. The food was incredible. The service was beyond truly our expectations, especially my bridal attendant and our maitred. Looking back on our day, there is not a thing I would change . All made possible by Jerry and his staff at the Garden City Hotel. We are so grateful.

    Have your Dream Wedding here!!!

    All I can say is WOW!!! Best Day Everrrrrr!!! Paul De La Vega (our wedding coordinator) was AMAZING! He helped us plan our big day and kept us calm and confident every step of the way. His professionalism and ability to answer every question and clear up any doubts with such ease was very comforting. He made us feel very comfortable and helped execute exactly what we wanted.
    We could not have asked for a better planner. I highly recommend The Garden City Hotel. Our guests raved about the location, the property and the delicious food served. The food was above and beyond delishous and never ending!!! Our drinks were never empty! They were also loving our wedding cake selection. Our red velvet canoli wedding cake was a hit.
    If you are looking for a wedding venue that is high end and classy, we highly recommend The Garden City Hotel and ask for Paul De La Vega. He is the best. The entire staff is very hands on, all you have to do is show up. They do EVERYTHING!!! I even got a personal assistant, Nang
