The beauty of the botanical gardens made for a great location for our wedding and reception. The gardens were in full bloom and absolutely gorgeous so we didn't have to do much in the way of flowers. If I was only rating the location I would give it "5 stars", however the primary event manager, Robyn, was not easy to work with. She was sometimes difficult, unresponsive (even a week out from the wedding), and not very friendly. Fortunately for the day of the wedding, you are assigned a different event manager that handles the logistics of the event itself. Our wedding day event manager, Nicole, was wonderful and ran the event beautifully.
One thing to note, if you have an outdoor wedding at this location and choose a tent as your "rain plan" make sure you understand the policy upfront. We were told there were 2 "approved" tent vendors we could choose from, but when we asked for their contact information a month out from the event (to reserve a tent as a backup) we were only provided with one "option" - needless to say the price of the tent was ridiculous and the overall service was terrible. You can hold your wedding indoors at the botanical garden as well so that's perhaps a better option.
