Words can't describe how perfect the Stonemill is
As two brides, we were a bit apprehensive about choosing a venue/vendors, but we never felt anything other than welcome/celebrated with NYBG/Constellation. Literally everything was pure magic about the Stonemill. From the food, to the staff, to how stunningly gorgeous the scenery is, you couldn't pick a better place to get married. Our guests are still texting/calling us three months later to rave about what an incredible venue it was. Please put this venue at the top of your list.Sent on 01/11/2020

Beautiful Venue & Professional Staff
We are so happy we chose to have our wedding reception at The Garden Terrace Room at NYBG. Our primary contact was Laura, who was responsive to our questions months before the wedding day, and extremely helpful in the weeks and days leading up to the wedding to ensure that everything ran smoothly. She was professional and a pleasure to work with, and we trusted that everything would work out as planned with her oversight. The venue itself was absolutely beautiful, a dream come true -- we had our cocktail hour outside on the Hudson Garden Grill terrace overlooking the conservatory and the reception in the ballroom. The room was not only stunning, but spacious enough to accommodate 200 people dancing all night long. The food was also delicious, as our guests continued to remind us even days after the wedding. We had very high expectations for our wedding day, and the Gardens did not disappoint.Sent on 10/13/2019

Best venue in NYC!
We couldn’t have found a better place to celebrate our wedding! The venue, service, food, staff were outstanding. Our guests kept complimenting the wedding days after and we can’t recommend the Stone Mills at NYBG enough. Dream place for a dream wedding!Sent on 09/04/2019
