Amazing, Beautiful, Professional
We loved working with Johan and his family at the Gardens. Everything was professional and easy to do. He answered any questions I had very quickly and efficiently. They also offered a catering option to have our rehearsal and dinner right at the Gardens and the food was amazing! We would recommend them to anyone!Sent on 02/07/2019

The Garden's Wedding Center is the best kept secret tucked away in Allenton, WI. With that said..The Garden's Wedding Center should no longer be a secret to brides who wish to have their wedding in a traditional, rustic and BEAUTIFUL Church. You will fall in love with the vintage church that has been brought back to life, with stain glass windows, a bell tower and a true church bell, beautiful alter, bridal suite and a groomsmen suite, a bar for before AND after beverages and has enough room to fit 200+ people. The most amazing part of this church and what made me fall in love with it is the Garden's that are attached. Johan takes such great care and has a passion for the Garden on the Church property; it has a swing, a bridge, a koi pond-along with many, many different types of flowers, shrubs and beautiful backgrounds for Pinterest perfect pictures! The Gardens Wedding Center no longer has a church congregation, there is no need to be "member" to have your wedding ceremony at The Gardens. You can bring your own officiant! Its a beautiful church where you can truly customize your own wedding and reception from start to finish!Sent on 08/27/2018
I had my wedding at The Garden's Wedding Center and it was everything I could have dreamed of! While I know the comments below state about the time constraint but I was able to have the venue for the whole day. Johan and his team are COMPLETELY accommodating and will work with you to help you bring your wedding dreams to life! You are also able to have your reception at The Gardens Wedding Center -truly an all inclusive kind of venue. I would have had my reception here had I not booked my reception already prior to finding a church.
Thank you to all at The Gardens Wedding Center for making our special day so perfect, so magic and unique!

We recently had our ceremony here and could not be happier!! As a couple, we wanted a chapel to be married in, but did not want to become a member of a church. This is the perfect alternative. Yes, they have a rental fee and rules, but this place is so beautiful, it is worth it.Sent on 08/29/2011
Karen and her family were so responsive to any questions that I had. Yes, as in the other reviews, there is a coordinator fee. I too, thought it was a little steep. However, the night of our rehearsal and the day of our wedding, it was worth the money. Karen took care of all the little details to make our wedding great!! I have never heard of any other facility providing this service.
They have 2 hour time slots for the ceremonies. Luckily (and not so) we found out on our rehearsal day that the wedding before us had cancelled. They let us come in a half an hour earlier and that was plenty of time. I belive if they had 2 1/2- 3 hour increments for each ceremony time slot, it would make things run a lot smoother.

The Gardens is an AMAZING venue. Whether you use the beautiful chapel on the grounds or the beautiful garden, you will be thrilled with the atmosphere & setting. The staff is the friendliest & they only want your Special Day to be perfect in every way! It's always a treat to preside over a ceremony at The Gardens!
A lovely garden setting for weddings with a helpful and knowledgable staff. I always enjoys performing ceremonies here.
