    Amazing from start to finish

    The Gardens was an amazing place to get married and thanks to the coordinator, Deric, it was a smooth and organized planning experience! We loved how the wedding offered the beautiful grounds, with multiple locations to host the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception! Deric is laid back, flexible, organized and simply a pleasure to work with! The food was incredible, with a wide variety of options, plentiful portions, and tasteful presentation. The best part is how flexible and accommodating the venue was, especially with COVID rescheduling. They allow for BYOB (and wine) which is a huge plus, both for the pocketbook and to be able to choose what you really like. They allowed us to bring in fun lawn games, bring in a variety of decorations (to add to all of the ones they offer, free of additional charge). Day of was seamless yet relaxed, and the servers and staff were friendly and discreet! Absolutely perfect day. Cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Magical day at the Gardens!!

    Amazing follow up from the event coordinator Deric. We had to reschedule our wedding twice due to the pandemic and the venue was very accommodating to any changes that we needed. The food was amazing and our wedding day was magical. I would definitely recommend this venue. Amazing space for couple and bridal party to get dressed and hang out before the wedding. Staff was very helpful and attentive to our needs on the day of. Loved everything about this location!
    Thanks to Deric and his staff again!

    Beautiful Venue!

    Planning a wedding during COVID is not an easy task, but thanks to Deric at the gardens, he made the process so easy for me! After my husband and I decided to elope due to the pandemic, we approached Deric with an idea to host a big reception in 2021 when (hopefully) there’s a vaccine for COVID. And, they had no issues with us doing this! So, this past October, we had an intimate ceremony with immediate family at the gardens, and next year, we’re hosting a big reception for all of our original guests! I can’t thank Deric and the rest of the gardens’ staff enough for being so laid back and letting us elope. Also, we had a small reception off-location after our ceremony, and the gardens catered this, and all of my family members are still raving about how amazing the food was! Melissa was our server and she was so kind and made sure my husband and I were completely taken care of during the reception! I HIGHLY recommend this venue — they will do everything in their power to ensure your wedding day is perfect. :)
