    Having our wedding at The Wedding Garden was one of the best choice we made throughout the entire process. Everyone was so wonderful and professional, but yet so caring. Our day couldn’t have been anymore perfect. I would absolutely recommend anyone to get married here.

    Melissa and the staff at The Wedding Garden were truly a blesssing for me and my husband in the months leading up to our wedding and especially on our wedding day! She helped me all the way through with planning and deciding on tiny details and made sure I was never stressed. I was so impressed with all the services conveniently offered through them. And the food.... the food was AMAZING! You hear all the time how terrible some wedding food is, but this is definitely not the case here! It was so delicious! You really can't ask for more in a wedding venue. It's gorgeous inside and out. I could go on about everything the staff did for me but simply put... best place to have a wedding hands down!!

    My husband and I got married October 15, 2016. I had the wedding of my dreams at the Wedding Garden. It was perfect! They did everything for us and made the day completely stress free. It was beautiful and everything flowed so smoothly. The staff at the Wedding Garden were wonderful to work with! Highly recommend it to anyone for any kind of event! They do it all!!

    Thank you The Wedding Garden!!

    I have delivered wedding cakes to a lot of different reception venues in the Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois area... but I'll never forget the first time I delivered to the Wedding Garden! "This is the most beautiful venue I've ever seen," I believe were my exact words! And I still feel that way today! From the beautiful fountain and sculpture, to the archway where they have the wedding ceremony, to the clean lines inside the reception hall, to the colored lights they use to match the reception decorations, to the rustic bar, to the beautiful glass sinks in the bathrooms (that's right... even the bathrooms are beautiful)... modern and romantic, The Wedding Garden has it all! And the people that work there are great... helpful and friendly, courteous and professional!
