    The Stone Mill is perfection

    We (finally) had our wedding at the Stone Mill at New York Botanical Garden in May 2021, after postponing from April 2020 to Sept 2020 to finally May 2021 due to covid. Through it all, the Constellation team, and specifically Laura Bass, were incredibly accommodating and flexible. Beyond the support planning and replanning our event (through all sorts of changing covid guidelines) -- the venue itself is incredible. We were looking for a smaller, intimate venue that also was near enough to the heart of NYC that allowed our out of state guests lots of flexibility and convenient airports and lodging. Stone Mill was perfect. We hosted our ceremony outside behind the building, then dinner upstairs in the dining room, then back outside for dancing under the stars. The staff during the event was incredible. I had multiple people tell me how impressed they were with the service. Our bridal attendant was there exactly when we needed a refresh of drink, offered to get us custom plates of food from cocktail hour and ensured we had everything we could possibly need in the bridal suite. If you're looking to book a picture-perfect venue with a partner team that will make the planning process easy and stress free, book at NYBG. I wish I could do it all over just to be able to enjoy our wedding day again

    Unbelievably Perfect

    I have no words to accurately describe how amazing and perfect everything was for our wedding at the NYBG. The entire team put so much focus and thought into every detail of our wedding. The entire night ran so smoothly - it’s hard to believe there was not even one issue. I can’t get over how perfect everything was.

    Stonemill at nybg was perfect

    We knew from the minute we toured that we had to get married there. It’s STUNNING, beautiful and truly an escape from the hustle and bustle of NYC. It’s such a romantic venue. It’s also great because it has indoor and outdoor space.
    Estee, the coordinator was very helpful. She was great at communicating / keeping us updated with everything from changes due to COVID to general menu inquires.
    The day of the wedding was so great, the catering staff was so nice. The food was AMAZING, the guest could not stop raving about it. Overall we couldn’t be happier, it was the best decision we made for our wedding.
