I just want to say that Deb and her staff went above and beyond to make our day perfect. Julie who married us was amazing and all of our guests and ourselves loved the food and our cake. She even gave some people seconds. It was hot and fresh and their hospitality was outstanding. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. It was worth every dollar and Deb really did go above and beyond with the decor. I made some new friends and for that I am blessed.

Deb and staff were absolutely wonderful and helped us every step of the way! Even the recommendations for photographer, DJ, and flowers from Deb were phenomenal. They do everything they can to make sure your day is perfect, and especially since we planned the wedding in 6 months. We were even given ideas and honest opinions about cake, decorations, etc. I could not say enough great things in reguards to everyone there and everything! Our day was perfect!

Great experience! Good staff who were very helpful. The interior and exterior were beautiful and we had lots of positive feedback from guests. I would recommend Jennifer’s Garden to family and friends.

Awesome wedding reception experience. Deb is an amazing planner and always answered I questions in a timely nice manor. Lynn was also great to, she helped me decorate my room and pick out the right colors. The food, drinks and cake was all amazing. I don't think anyone left hungry. The entrance from the upstairs made some awesome photos.
Thank you Jennifer's Gardens. 100% happy!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Jennifer’s Garden! Deb & her staff are fabulous. They exceeded all my expectations! Elegant, Romantic, Glamorous! Everything I wanted in a wedding/reception venue! Stress free planning with Deb!

Deb and her team at Jennifers Garden are amazing. The hall was beautiful, our day was perfect. Hotels are super close, shuttles run all night and easy access to the highway. Best wedding ever.
Amy · Married on 07/22/2017
Jennifer's Garden went above and beyond our expectations. They have a system and it works. Deb was always there to make our wedding perfect and did whatever it was that she could. Julie was the perfect officiator for us and made our ceremony so personal but fun. Our flowers didnt show up and in 10 mins they ran and put stuff together for bouquets! It was incredible how they did everything in their power to make the day great. I would recommend them to everyone who gets married.
Valerie · Married on 07/08/2017
Our daughter and her new husband chose Jennifer's Garden as the venue for both their ceremony and reception, and we are so pleased with their choice! Deb and her staff were so organized, flexible, and helpful throughout and made the day absolutely perfect. The officiant, Julie, was wonderful and made the ceremony very personal and meaningful. Reception hall was beautiful and food was excellent! Service was maybe a little "too" efficient, as they were a little too quick to take plates away at dinner in order to keep the timing in check. Also, be aware that bar closes for only 1/2 hour during dinner (not an hour as contract says) and then bar closes 1/2 hour before end of evening - so still 5 hour reception with 4 hr open bar as contract says - not a problem, but just something to be aware of. Several hotels 2 minutes away, and they offer shuttle service to and from hotels all night - wonderful! Overall a perfect day, wonderful venue at great value, and we would absolutely recommend!
Kallan · Married on 07/08/2017
Jennifer's Garden was OUTSTANDING!! No stone was left unturned and Deb was extremely fast and efficient at responding to any and all questions throughout the process! Prices are extremely reasonable, you get SO much for what you pay for, and the service is top notch. Food is great, the reception rooms are big and very accommodating.., I really can't say enough great things about this venue from beginning to end!!!
Rebecca · Married on 07/01/2017
I loved everything about this place. It was like home and family working with deb, lynn, and julie. It was a stressfree and perfect day and they way exceeded any expectations.
Amanda · Married on 06/24/2017
Deb and her staff did an amazing job with our wedding. It was everything we dreamed of and more! They were very accommodating to all of our requests and anything we needed for our big day. The food was to die for! We could not have asked for a better day and we highly recommend them to everyone!
Andrea · Married on 06/10/2017
My daughter's wedding reception was even more than we imagined! Deb and her team were amazing. Deb took such good care of us from the very first meeting to the very end. She went out of her way to make everything extra special and even more than we had discussed. She personally checked on everything during our event and made sure my husband got his specialty diet challenges met. The food was excellent and the portion sizes were very generous. The cake was beautiful and exactly what my daughter and son in law wanted. Our guests commented on how wonderful everything was and how much they enjoyed the venue. I can't imagine going anywhere else for this event. It was a dream come true for my daughter. Deb took all the stress away so we could enjoy the day. We are truly thankful for Deb and the entire staff. Deb was a blessing!

Planning a wedding can be stressful, but let me tell you working with Jennifer's Garden and Jennifer's Garden, and especially Deb, made my experience nothing but a pleasure. In the first email I sent Deb at 9 PM at night asking about more information about the venue, we received nothing but prompt responses. (I remember telling my fiancé, so shocked, that Jennifer's Garden already emailed back with info--the same night!) Deb made anything I wanted, possible, including a light wall display the week of the wedding. Deb and her team made it happen! I had my wedding on site as well and the reception was very well organized and helped set family members' minds at ease with a better idea of what would happen the actual day of the wedding. At the reception, the food was delicious (people were telling me how great it was days later) and I don't recall of there ever being a real line at the bar (we had about 170 guests). Deb and her team literally take care of anything you need and made my entire wedding experience so easy! It is easy for a bride to get stressed during wedding planning, but not when you're working with Jennifer's Garden!
Gabrielle · Married on 04/22/2017
They are fantastic!! We had such a great wedding. They kept making sure we were happy and didn't need anything all night! Everyone loved the food and it all came out so timely, and hot. Would recommend them to anyone! Deb and her team are fantastic!!
Blair · Married on 08/13/2016
Anything and everything I dreamed of (and some things I didn't) were all taken care of beautifully at Jennifer's Garden. Deb, Lynn, and the staff took great care to make sure our wedding was nothing short of perfection. The food was phenomenal (that people are still raving about) and the sense of ease it gave me and my new husband was unparalleled. We didn't have to deal with set-up or clean-up and we were accommodated on every level we expected to be. The shuttle service was fabulous and without any snags. The cake was gorgeous and delicious. We could go on and on. But we must not forget how beautiful the venue and gardens are - our photos are stunning. If I could do it all over, I wouldn't change a thing.

Jennifer's Garden was beautiful and well-priced. The location was good for me since my family is close to the area. Some of my vendors and bridal party members did not care for Deb, but i did not have any problems with her. The day went perfectly and i got everything that i wanted.
Mary · Married on 07/14/2012
I would recommend Jennifer Garden to anyone. Deb is very awesome and making sure the you day is about the bride and groom. She made sure we had everything and also got to eat before dinner. Thank for making our day special DEb.
jennifer · Married on 06/23/2012
There are truely not enough words for me to describe how Deb and her staff were.Just amazing,polite,aware of everything.The bartenders knew every drink every person would order and they were fast,and when the bar closed for an hour for dinner he was right at our head table.The food tasted more amazing than I remember from the tasting.Deb and her staff also do everything for you,all you need to do is relax and enjoy your day.Everyone from my wedding raved for a week about how nice it was.I was stuck on what to give my guests for there favor and Deb suggest I do a candy bar(a table full of assorted sweets)that was a huge hit,everyone loved it.thanks again to Deb and there staff. jennifer's garden is affordable,and they do everything there,your cake,food,bar,ceremony's,table's decorated.AMAZING
Amanda · Married on 08/14/2010
Jennifer's Garden was absolutely fantastic in every way! Deb, the event coordinator, put me at ease from the first time we walked in the door. We were able to communicate over the phone and through email on occasions when I could not make the drive out to Morris. She was always very organized and pleasant to speak with about anything. Her staff was also very helpful and very organized, making sure that every detail was to our liking. The service, the food, the cake, and the location are worth much more than the extremely affordable price. We are so happy that we were able to have our reception at Jennifer's Garden. Thank you for everything!
Lisa · Married on 06/14/2008
The ladies were incredibly helpful. They were always willing to answer my questions quickly, work with anything special I wanted, and even fixed a decoration that I was working on and couldn't get right. The food was spectacular and everyone raved about it. Everyone also pointed out that they barely even noticed the wait staff, they were so discreet.
Christina · Married on 08/04/2018
Deb is really on top of everything, and the price is great for how much is included! Everything ran smoothly for the most part. My only advice is that you make sure you communicate well with Deb. One thing wasn't mentioned to her about my plans and it was a pretty big bump for me. We got it taken care of, but she has a schedule (based off of your wants and needs, just tell her) and you better stick to it. I would definitely recommend and book them again.
Amanda · Married on 12/08/2007
Anne was wonderful to work with. She worked very hard to make sure my dreams came true within my budget. The food was wonderful, the room and tables were beautiful, and the guests felt like they were in a palace. It really was exceptional.
