    I cannot praise this place and the staff enough- they were flexible, nice, organized, and overall made my special day less stressful. Everything ran smoothly. When I misunderstood something on the invoice, they were fast and understanding and we got it taken care of immediately. My wedding was perfect, and I can't imagine it being half as good anywhere else. Kristin and Mary Ann are the best!

    It just does not get any better. Mary Ann and her staff were very professional and just made the event go perfectly. Our wedding was Sept 24, 2016 and the weather was also perfect. Add to that, Gallery of Food, our caterer, provided a dinner that everyone thought was outstanding! My hat goes off to Kristine and Mary Ann! Thanks so much for making this a truly remarkable event!

    We had our wedding at this venue in January of 2016. The ceremony was at the Reception Garden and rehearsal at the Pavilion. Mary Ann, the coordinator of events, was extremely helpful with planning and executing the big day. We would suggest the Butterfly Magic exhibit to anyone considering a wedding here. Every single one of our guests enjoyed the exhibit and spent time in there between the wedding and the reception. Guests were also able to tour the gardens on their own. When we arrived for the big day the tables were all set. Mary Ann had ensured that there would be large banquet tables available for pies that the groom's mom made as well as a guest book station. The caterers associated with the gardens were also incredibly professional with delicious, one-of-a-kind food. We loved that we were able to bring in our own alcohol and cider, as well as ice cream and pies. We rented two outside space heaters for the reception, which occurred at 5 PM, and we would recommend at least 2 or more for January receptions that occur outdoors in the evenings. Some of the guests were cold.
