    Excellent venue

    I recently had my wedding at Tyler Gardens through Open Aire and it was better then I could have imagined. We were originally scheduled for last spring but due to Covid, it could not happen last year. The staffing was so accommodating with working to figure out a new date, while keeping up with all of the new covid regulations. I was able to stop into their show room at Newtown Party Rental and they showed me all the items that we were offered for the wedding. After last year I was not expecting the wedding to actually work out as perfect as it did.

    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鈥檙e looking for a gorgeous, elegant, garden style venue look no further!

    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鈥檛 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.
