Brownstone Gardens is such an amazing and beautiful venue. It exceeded all of our expectations and really was more than I ever imagined for my wedding.
When we first went looking for Brownstone, we were skeptical as we drove down Brentwood Blvd and then the gravel drive, but once we entered the property we immediately fell in love! Truly a hidden gem. During the day the gardens are beautiful - the foliage & waterfalls; but at night, the string lighting on the trees and in the grand courtyard made everything feel like a dream.
The staff at the venue were absolutely wonderful. Barbara is amazing! She took a lot of the stress off of my shoulders during the planning stage and made sure our wedding ran smoothly. Barbara and the staff took such good care of us and made sure that the day of the wedding I had nothing to worry about so I could really enjoy our day - and with 200 guests, kids & a few special requests, that is saying a lot.
Brownstone accomodated everyone from handling guests with mobility needs to a kid area with a jumpy so that the kids and parents could have a great time. We still have guests raving about how beautiful the venue was and how much fun they had.
Brownstone Gardens has so much to offer and we would definitely recommend them to everyone!

Wow! That's the first thing that comes to my mind when i think about my amazing venue! My husband and i got married her on August 23, 2014 and we would never think of changing it if we could. The day was amazing and it was all thanks to brownstone gardens! We booked our wedding with brownstone 2.5 years in advance which gave us plenty of time to get to know the staff and how amazing everyone involved is. Brownstone worked with every question or request we had! The response time is AMAZING! Kay-Kay was soooo much help when trying to plan our day, every question answered, and amazing recommendations. On the day of brownstone went above and beyond to make our day run smooth. We had a start time of 5 o'clock and if i can guesstimate the time, i was walking down the aisle at 5! Not many weddings run on time and this was all because of them, everything was ready and perfect. Not only were we more than satisfied with brownstone, but so were our guests. We have received so many compliments about the venue and how gorgeous it was. This venue is amazing and if your looking for a world of your own to enjoy the day in this is your place. Nicely tucked away and absolutely gorgeous inside! We wouldn't trade anything about our day and would recommend brownstone to anyone! Thank you Brownstone for all you did to make our day amazing!

My husband I got married here in July 2014. We had been shopping around for our wedding venue when we came across Brownstone Gardens and we immediately knew this was the place. My husband always says he never dreamed of being married in such a beautiful place. I really wanted and outdoor venue with twinkly lights....and man they have a bunch of twinkly lights. You would never expect such a magical place when you drive up to it. Everything about it is beautiful. All the staff were very helpful and especially Kay Kay, Diana and Barbara. These ladies worked with me through the planning up until the very end of the wedding day. They have so many great resources for different vendors and ideas to make your wedding amazing. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't of had the "A-Team" working my wedding. (photographers, Dj, Florist, Cakes, etc.) Not only were they very helpful during the planning process, but when it came to the wedding day, they were awesome. If something needed to be moved or this was a last min stressor or change, they were on top of it. They were quick, efficient, and professional. I will definitely recommend this venue to anyone I know getting married. It is simply gorgeous, and they are constantly updating their grounds (not like they need it because it is beautiful already) but they really strive to make every couple happy. I dont know how many compliments we got saying how beautiful the venue was. Great venue, great people, great resources. So happy we got married at Brownstone. They do other events there too... I may just have to think of another event to have just to go back.

Brownstone Gardens is an incredible venue! When we were looking for our venue, Brownstone was our first and only stop. As soon as I saw the lights in the trees, the waterfall, the koi pond, and all of the gorgeous greenery, I knew this was it. Since I was a little girl, I knew exactly where I saw myself getting married, and when I saw Brownstone Gardens, it was the perfect picture. Diana, our wedding coordinator, was so great to work with as well! From our first visit, to the catering tastings, to the walk-through and the wedding itself, she was there every step of the way. They really make sure to take care of everything so when the big day finally arrived, we had nothing to worry about. We are both so happy we chose to have our wedding at Brownstone, and our guests loved it as well. I definitely recommend this gorgeous venue to anyone looking for the perfect wedding.

We spent at least a month straight looking for a venue for our wedding that just passed on June 7th. When we saw photos online, especially the night photos taken by Discovery Bay Studios Photography (who we chose as well!) we were hooked. The venue itself is beyond gorgeous, and the staff makes it even better. Barbara, KayKay, Diana, everyone was so incredible to work with. I HIGHLY recommend Brownstone and their "A Team" of vendors to anyone who wants the perfect wedding day. From
planning, to organizing payment, to touring the grounds, food tastings, rehearsal day, to the big day itself- you will be pleased with Brownstone every step of the way! They are truly amazing!

My daughter had her fairytale princess wedding at Brownstone. It was a breathtaking evening. Every employee was helpful and happy. The grounds were lovely. I cannot say enough great things about this venue. It really is as beautiful as the pictures show. They took care of every detail. I cannot think of anything left undone. I may just have to do a vow renewal just so I can have another party there!

Brownstone Gardens is an absolutely wonderful venue! When you first pull up, you may think to yourself 'what is this place?!' But once you step into the gardens, you are transported to the most magical and beautiful place! From the first visit, even until after our wedding, Brownstone's staff has been nothing short amazing. Kay Kay is quick to answer any and all questions you may have, and she makes planning your wedding so easy. Diana, our amazing day of coordinator, gave us a stress free night and was helpful in every aspect of the wedding day! Many of our guests have expressed that our wedding was the most beautiful one they have ever attended, and it is because of the beauty that is Brownstone Gardens. I highly recommend this venue, you will not regret it!

My husband and I were married at Brownstone Gardens on 9/13/13. We knew from the beginning we wanted a small(75 people) and intimate wedding of our closes family and friends. We also wanted a magical setting. We found all of this at BG.

When we began looking initially, we knew we wanted to get married outside and have our receiption outside as well. A huge deal breaker was whether or not the venue would allow us to have our Golden Retriever in the wedding and on site. We had looked at a few places before coming to BG, however, the second we saw BG we fell in love and knew this was the special place where we wanted to begin our life together.

From the second we came in for our tour the entire staff was nothing but friendly and accomodating. We signed our contract shortly afterwards and anticipated our big day. Kay-Kay & staff were always very on top of things and always kept me in the "know" and let me know what my options were and when they needed certain decisions made by. I never felt like I was rushed or not heard which led to a beautiful wedding.

My husband and I made all of the centerpieces, did all of the tables, and he even made our wedding cake. Kay-Kay had no objections and truly supported that we wanted to DIY certain things with our wedding. This was really special to us because we wanted to create such an intimate and personalized wedding.

The day of our wedding was chaotic (which I expected), but Kay-Kay was there early to assist with whatever we needed. I remember asking her for water, champagne flutes for the bridal suite, a dog bowl, scissors, a shot of vodka(all before the wedding)..and the list goes on. She was always right there to accomodate and get whatever I wanted.

All of our guests could not stop raving about how amazing our wedding was and how beautiful the venue was. When my husband and I think back on our night, we absolutely just smile and feel so good knowing we had the perfect wedding at the perfect venue.
