Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With its charming cottage and impressive gardens, this hidden treasure sits in historic Hamilton Square. Once the home of avid gardener Frederick Sayen, it offers a secluded oasis at the town’s vibrant center.
  • Outside ceremonies are held in the Temple Gardens, which are accented by ponds, fountains, and gazebos. Follow your vows with cocktails the lawn, then move indoors to celebrate in the home’s beautifully maintained rooms.
  • Your rental fee helps preserve the building and grounds, which feature plants and flowers collected from Sayen’s world travels that still bloom today…including over 1,000 azaleas and 500 rhododendrons!
