Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • The famous flowers: Nestled away in Elizabeth Park, America’s oldest public rose garden, this site is a cozy oasis perfect for a relaxed wedding. The natural surroundings are a delight no matter what the season and provide a lovely backdrop for your photographs.
  • The beautiful ballroom: Cathedral windows in the Garden Room offer a stunning view of the treelined pond outside. The high wooden ceiling, stone fireplace, and seasonal foliage arranged indoors turn the space into a hidden paradise.
  • The special services: Their dinner package includes a five-hour block of time, gold Chiavari chairs, butler-passed hors d’oeuvres, and a wedding cake. The professional wait staff will ensure that everything goes off without a hitch.
