A Beautiful Wedding Venue with Charm
Rockledge Gardens was the perfect venue for me and my husband to get married! Our wedding was in early March and all the flowers were blooming, it was gorgeous. There are a hundred beautiful backdrops for photos. When the sun went down, the string lights came on and the fire started and it just turns the whole venue into a magical place. All of our guests commented on how beautiful it was. The staff is continuously improving and beautifying the venue. Liz was great to work with and Jessica helped me so much on the day-of with last minute decisions and helping me with my dress. Thank you to all the staff, we had a wonderful day.Sent on 03/17/2019
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you so much, Jen! You and Eric were absolutely a pleasure to work with and we wish you so much happiness in your marriage!

Wonderful place to have a wedding!
Rockledge Gardens made our wedding unique and special. Liz and Jessica were very kind, helpful, and accommodating throughout the entire process. They always answered our questions promptly. We were in between two venues and ended up choosing Rockledge Gardens because of their down to earth attitude and customer service. It was also a meaningful venue for us as it is an educational and nature-focused space. We heard many compliments from guests about our unique wedding and venue.Sent on 06/08/2019
Rockledge Gardens allows you to customize your wedding in many ways. We did not want a DJ but they have a great sound system that you can plug and AUX cord into and be your own DJ. They are flexible with catering and other vendors, allowing us to bring in a Syrian food caterer from Jacksonville who grilled kebabs for us on the property. We also had 6 rescue dogs walk down the aisle with our wedding party and attend the wedding. Our theme was very colorful and international and they allowed us to hang garlands over the cocktail space. I also wanted a non-traditional floor plan and Jessica helped me map it out and make it happen. We had a huge wedding party and Jessica and other staff helped keep everyone on track. Sustainability is important to us and they helped us with compostable and recyclable containers for waste. Guests enjoyed playing the yard games they have including giant jenga and cornhole. They also have great options like live plant centerpieces and favors. Liz and Jessica can also offer vendor recommendations if you need a starting point! We ended up using several of their recommendations including The Lemons Photography and Kimberley Tucker wedding coordinator.
Evenings are beautiful at the gardens, and you really don't need much decor as the plants and flowers speak for themselves. Highly recommend Rockledge Gardens for your wedding or event! Thank you to Liz, Jessica, and all the Rockledge Gardens staff!

Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you so much, Gage! We loved your commitment sustainability and causes that matter to you and how you made that a part of your wedding vision from the start. Wishing you and Doruk a lifetime of laughter and happiness!

Rockledge Gardens, words cannot describe the magic at this venue.Sent on 05/23/2019
My new husband and I didn’t do things like a normal couple, since he’s in the military, we planned a wedding in a month. With that being said it was so intensely difficult to not only find a venue but that venue to be available in a months time.
When I first heard about the possibility of having a small reception at this dream location I started crossing my fingers and praying. When I found that they were available for my wedding date, all the bridezilla stress and anxiety went away. Not only because this location is something out of a fairy talk but because the staff of the gardens were; in every sense of the word; amazing. Not to mention military family friendly!
They tended to every request and gave several solutions to each problem that accrued. I’m still amazed at how each of the staff members genuinely wanted to make our wedding day the greatest day of our life!
I will always be so incredibly thankful for Liz and the rest of the event team. For always being two steps ahead 24/7.
Also for Shells Event Planning and Mimosas & Moonshine for all they’re hard work and small detailed touches. I’m still in awe of how spectacular the day and planning process was.
I will always recommend this venue for any event.
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Kelsea we loved being part of your day and seeing your incredible vision come to life! Wishing you so much joy in your marriage!

Helpful, family environment, clean and specific to our needs
Liz and her staff were beyond helpful for my wife and I's wedding 12/15/19. We chose this venue because of excellent review and they are accurate to the t. We were so impressed by the aesthetics of the venue which really for us became the focal point of all of our decorations. The place is simply beautiful and the staff were helpful the whole way through. Initially we were concerned about 2 things: having the wedding while the facility was still open and the noise of US 1 interfering with the ceremony. Neither of those things were an issue and we were amazed at how secluded and special we felt. The venue just does an amazing job of coordinating the event. Couldn't recommend higher!Sent on 04/29/2019
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you so much, Jeff! You and Leah were wonderful to work with and we wish you a lifetime of joy, laughter, and happiness! We're so happy you chose to celebrate with us!

My husband and I were married there on March 1st and we could not have asked for a more beautiful location. Liz was with me every step of the way made the whole process completely stress free. Jessica came in the day of and along with the other amazing event staff they made our day perfect. If you are looking for a one of a kind amazing wedding venue come here!Sent on 03/14/2019
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you so much, Deanna! You created so many beautiful touches and we loved working with you! Wishing you and Matt a million years of happiness!

Absoultely gorgeous venue and outstanding staff to assist!
My husband and I got married at Rockledge Gardens in February and we had the best time! The venue is absolutely beautiful. I love how everything is all right next to each other (ceremony space and reception/cocktail space). I highly recommend getting a food truck for cocktail hour and dinner, people LOVED it. The lights at night make this place truly magical and we are so thrilled we chose this place. Planning with Liz and Jessica was a breeze, highly recommend for your wedding!Sent on 03/15/2019
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you so much, Michelle! That photo is pure magic! We'd love to see the rest from your wedding! Wishing you two a lifetime of happiness, laughter, and joy in marriage.

Best Choice Ever!
Liz, Jessica, and the rest of the Rockledge Gardens team were absolutely the most helpful, patient, and accommodating staff anyone can ask for! They went above and beyond for our special day.Sent on 05/12/2019
They are extremely responsive, with tons of connections and recommendations for all the other pieces of your wedding. They are willing to work with just about anyone. Their terms and conditions are straightforward and easy to understand.
The Gardens were absolutely gorgeous for our March wedding. Everything was in bloom! The fire pit, pavilion space, courtyard, and even the commercial areas are just perfect for your garden party-style wedding. It's so much fun for you and your guests to be able to visit and view the entire space during your event.
We knew it was love at first site and we are so happy we decided to host our wedding here.
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you so much, Cody! We loved working with you and Mel and your Winnie-the-Pooh theme came out soooooo beautifully! Thank you so much for celebrating with us. We wish you a lifetime of laughter and joy!

Best Location Ever!
I really wanted to have an outside wedding that wasn't too expensive. This really was the perfect place! Many of the vendors had already worked there so they knew each other, the flowers were all beautiful and they helped us each step of the way. I can't imagine a better venue! I highly recommend it. PS splurge a little for the horse drawn carriage!Sent on 02/16/2019
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you so much, Lonna! We loved working with you guys! And Ryan in the top hat was the best ever!

Backyard wedding vibes
We love the feel of a backyard wedding that Rockledge Gardens has! The staff is amazing and will work with you every step of the way. They are very flexible about vendors and so much is included in the package that it's extremely affordable. Would 100% still book here if I did it all over again. There are so many beautiful features all over the place and the relaxed vibe of the venue makes for a beautiful wedding.Sent on 12/25/2018
The only thing to be aware of, this is not a super private venue. The bridal get ready area is also the dedicated office and there were customers walking around during our first look and until about an hour into our wedding. It's nothing that bothered us and they made that all clear when we booked, just be aware that you should have some people with you to shoo away nosy customers (one almost walked into the middle of our first look lol, awkward)
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you so much Samantha! And thank you for the feedback. We’ll work on making sure there is someone to run interference during first look, etc.!

A Dream Come True Venue!
From our first tour, into our planning, and throughout our wedding – our experience with Rockledge Gardens, Liz, and her staff was pleasant, professional, and straightforward! I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone! Liz has outstanding communication, organization skills, and planning techniques that gave us much needed comfort as we planned our special day. In many ways, she went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be – and it truly was! The venue itself is AMAZING! The venue is well kept, GORGEOUS, and extremely functional and convenient! There honestly is not one thing I would have changed with our Rockledge Garden experience!Sent on 01/11/2019
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you SO MUCH, Brooke! You were truly a delight to work with from start to finish as well! We're so happy you and Justin chose to start your forever with us!

Ryan Abell · Married on 11/03/2018
I could not have imagined a more perfect venue for our wedding than Rockledge Gardens. Firstly, the venue itself is beautiful, especially when coupled with the optional pavilion interior plant decor service. We were blown away on our wedding day. Also, Liz and her entire staff were more than accommodating and always striving to help make our day as amazing as possible. We were even able to include our pup in our day! We were thrilled with the entire process of planning our wedding at Rockledge Gardens, especially on our wedding day. We truly couldn't have asked for a better experience. I have and do recommend Rockledge Gardens Weddings to anyone who will listen.Sent on 01/02/2019

Rockledge Gardens was the PERFECT venue for our wedding! Every detail was perfect! When we found Rockledge we had no idea how truly amazing this place was.

lupe · Married on 04/21/2018
My then fiance and I went to see a hall for our first tour of venues. It wasnt what either of us wanted and was almost our entire budget. Then we visited Rockledge Gardens. In awe from the first sight and as the tour went on we knew it was it. The gardens are gorgeous. The pavillion can be anything you make it. Plenty of places to take gorgeous pictures. The staff was so nice and accomodating. We had a smores table at the firepit and it was a smash with the kids and adults. I cant say enough of Rockledge Gardens. I pestered with a million questions as we approached the day and pestered more the week of. They were very patient and caring. The cost was affordable and it was all a dream.Sent on 06/05/2018
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you so much, Lupe! I loved all your touches, especially the unbelievably adorable ring bearer! We wish you and Godfrey so much happiness!

I wish I could give Rockledge Gardens 100 stars! Liz and her team made our planning stress-free and so easy! They recommended some amazing vendors for us, and they all worked together to make our day perfect! The team helped with day of the wedding coordination also, which was amazing. I cannot stress enough how seamless the wedding planning and event day went, and not to mention the gardens are gorgeous. The setting has something for every style of bride and our photos are gorgeous. If I ever have another wedding, I would seriously do it at Rockledge Gardens again. Best experience ever!!!!!!Sent on 05/11/2018

We couldn't have found a better spot for our December wedding! With a location close to the cruise port (where some of our guests joined us for a weekend extended reception), gorgeous venue, and a fantastic staff, we really couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day!

Liz, in particular, was such a joy to work with. She's extremely responsive and goes above and beyond for her couples. We are so, so happy we chose Rockledge Gardens as our wedding venue!

We had our intimate wedding here. It’s the perfect place for a ceremony. The garden creates a wonderful place for such a special day. The reception is right next to the ceremony so it’s very beneficial. I love the lights and the little tiles area; made night time so beautiful.Sent on 12/30/2017

Julie · Married on 11/17/2017
My husband and I tied the knot at Rockledge Gardens in November and it was a genuine dream come true! The space is absolutely divine and the staff is incredible. We found out about this wonderfully vibrant and inviting venue at a bridal show after speaking with Liz. From that moment forward she was instrumental in helping us achieve our perfect day. Through her partnership with Rent Your Events we were able to secure tables, seating, and linens which made planning tremendously more easy. She also helped us find affordable special event insurance which gave us peace of mind so that we could relax and enjoy our celebration. Her support and involvement throughout the whole process was superb.Sent on 01/13/2018
With respect to the space, in a word, the grounds were enchanting. Our wedding felt truly surreal and our guests were in awe of the striking beauty at every turn. For our intimate gathering of about 40 guests, the layout of the grounds played a huge role in the success of our evening. After having our ceremony under the archway on the lawn, our guests were able to be seated immediately for the reception in the pavilion. Having the kitchen and bar space made things seamless for our caterers. One of my favorite things, though, was having the fire pit.
Before our wedding I had admired pictures of other couples' at the Gardens and was always impressed to see how different each appeared. The space is so well designed; it truly becomes the canvas for any couple's theme.
Shout out: All photos of our event featured with this post were taken by Oak& Iron Photography.
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you so much, Julie! I will always remember you and Mike. Your love for each other and the sparkle of fun in everything you do just shines so bright! We are thrilled to have been a part of your celebration! XOXO Liz

Liz and her staff at the garden made us feel like part of the family. The venue is amazing, with the whole garden at your dispossal for pictures before or after the ceremony. The covered pavillion was perfect for the caterer to set up and serve. The gazebo was perfect for the band that we had. After the sun set, the provided lighting transformed the space into a magical spot. We could not have asked for more.Sent on 04/18/2017
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you so much, Jeff! You and Tiffany are such a beautiful couple. We are so thrilled that you started your marriage here!
Benjamin · Married on 11/12/2016
Ours was an LGBTQ wedding. You could not ask for a more open hearted and inviting staff than those at Rockledge Gardens. On top of the 100% support they have for all couples, that immediately set our minds at ease, "The Harry and Mary Witte Learning Center" pavilion where they host events is one of the most beautiful settings for a wedding that you can find in Brevard County. It was such a magical night that we are thinking of booking our One Year Anniversary party at the same location.Sent on 06/29/2017
Rockledge Gardens's reply:Thank you so much, Ben! We are so honored that you and Dwight chose to celebrate your marriage with us! Can't wait for the anniversary party!
