Amazing fall wedding!

We were married in October and it could not have been more breathtaking than Tyler Gardens. Every guest could not stop talking about the beauty and perfection of Tyler Gardens. Additionally working with Rae on the day of our wedding was the icing on a perfect fall day. Rae took care of everything in the most professional manner and I am forever thankful to her.

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’re looking for a gorgeous, elegant, garden style venue look no further!
