    Perfect Fall Wedding

    This was the first and only venue that Tom and I visited to plan our dream wedding. Anna and her team made every dream of ours come true. From the big things, like choosing a food vendor, to the small details, they were there with us every step of the way. Anna even went out of her way to make sure our cider donut vision came to life, and for that we are eternally grateful.

    First Class Experience

    A magical night at an amazing place! Anna and her team was on top of everything making sure that the night flowed and the Bride and Groom did not have a worry in the world. At times it felt like there were 4 or 5 of her there, :)
    From the rehearsal, to the ceremony, to the First Dances, to the dinner and a night of dancing and celebration, Anna and The Garden at the Hopps made it happen!
