Gorgeous, Elegant, Garden Venue
Tyler Gardens was the first and last venue we looked for our wedding reception. The gardens and tent are absolutely gorgeous! Open Aire Affairs, especially Amanda, were wonderful to work with. Amanda answered all of my (many) questions throughout the planning process and made me feel at ease leading up to our big day. Two days before our wedding there were tornados that touched down nearby. The next day Amanda drove to Tyler Gardens herself to assure me that the tent was perfectly fine and no trees had damaged the gardens for our day. The tent is enormous and easily fit our 120 guests, food stations, additional tables, and dance floor. The patio and fire pit were an awesome perk as well! Keep in mind that if you do choose to have your reception at Tyler Gardens, consider having a day of coordinator to help since Open Aire Affairs is only responsible for the venue and any upgrades you choose; NOT for day of coordination. Open Aire Affairs does provide a wonderful list of preferred vendors (caterers, wedding planners, photographers, etc.). The venue itself is truly breathtaking and if you’re looking for a gorgeous, elegant, garden style venue look no further!Sent on 11/10/2019

Best Wedding Ever
This venue and staff are amazing. My wife and I got married there over the past weekend and it was the most perfect day ever. We had such an amazing team that helped us throughout the whole process. Rae and Amanda are the best and this day wouldn’t have been what it was without them. We booked with them back in June of 2017 and they were there for us every step of the way. If you are looking for an outdoor garden wedding then this is the perfect spot to pick. They will do everything that they can to make sure you dream comes true.Sent on 05/28/2019

We booked Tyler Gardens an Open Aire Affairs venue in the dead winter with nothing growing or the tented area even up. We were skeptical at first but seeing all the photos we decided to go with our gut & book this venue. Very fortunate for us a date in September opened up for us to book & Amanda was so accommodating. She was very helpful & answered all my bride to be questions. Our event is all our family can talk about over the holiday!Sent on 11/29/2018
I had the pleasure of photographing a styled editorial shoot here earlier this year and absolutely love this venue! The light, the grounds, and variety of spaces to work with is amazing. I hope to work here again soon!
I absolutely love photographing at Tyler Gardens. The architecture and formal gardens are gorgeous and perfect for timeless, wedding photos. The team at Open Aire Affairs is great as well. I highly recommend!
