Beth is so easy to work with. She's very thorough in answering any questions. She cares about each client and wants to make sure we have a wonderful wedding day! The building itself is phenomenal and unique!

We were able to rent out the hall for friday and saturday which allowed us plenty of time to set up and have our rehearsal dinner there. The place itself is beautiful inside and out! Summer is the best, the garden is perfect for an outdoor ceremony. You can bring your own food, drinks, etc or chose any caterer which is very helpful if you're on a budget.

We loved Horticultural Hall so much that we had our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and reception there! It is an absolutely stunning venue with TONS of natural beauty and character for a small-medium indoor/outdoor wedding. Beth was fantastic to work with and we were really free to do a lot of what we wanted in terms of catering, bar service, decorating, etc. The price is great…so much so that we even had our rehearsal dinner here and grilled out/had salads etc. catered. They supply plenty of tables and chairs for both ceremony and reception which saved a lot of money in terms of renting that stuff from an outside vendor. Oh, and have I mentioned how beautiful the venue is?! Ivy, rose bushes, plants, flowers, mature trees, all in an historic building with wood floors, natural light, beautifully simple wood beams and lighting with wrap-around screened areas surrounding the courtyard and providing space for guests to gather and mingle…as well as room for child guests to play…seriously, what more could you ask for. We absolutely LOVED this place and received glowing remarks from our guests as well!

Planning a wedding from across the country is difficult, but the second I saw photos of Horticultural Hall online I knew it was the venue for us. I flew into Lake Geneva one weekend to book the hall, but all the details/planning were all done via email. Beth was great to work with, which made things go very smoothly. They had a variety of chairs, tables, a bar, and other rental items for us to use. They also work with many vendors throughout the area so it was easy to plan. Not to mention how incredibly GEORGOUS the venue is!!! The courtyard was in bloom, so many flowers, green vines growing along the brick, and a few fountain which was a surprise when I got there to set up. The two days before the wedding I was in and out, and I was blown away by the upkeep they put into keeping the place beautiful. From upkeeping of the flowers, to painting, cleaning (which was emaculate), taking care of the lawn. It was just beautiful. All of our guests gushed about how intimate the venue was. I set up 6 cocktail tables outside, with a cigar bar, and the bar, and guests loved hanging out in the courtyard. We propped upon the french doors so that people hanging out in the courtyard throughout the night could hear our band. Another great thing about this venue is that we had the option to rent it for the entire weekend. I picked up the keys on a Thursday, set up Friday, and did not have to have things out until Sunday. Would recommend to anyone with a wedding guest list of 120 or less, who is looking for a romantic and intimate venue!

From the moment we stepped into the hall we knew right away that is where we wanted to be married. Not only is it an amazing place with the beautiful gardens, but the staff is also amazing. Another reviewer said that there are not enough chairs for the outside, this has been taken care of and now they offer plenty of seating for both indoors and out. They have a nice sized kitchen with a huge refrigerator and stove and you can use any caterer you wish. The Hall is perfect for dinner and just move some tables later for the dancing. The back has 4 booths that we utilized for a "candy shop" pictures and so on. This is a day I will never forget and it's in large part to this amazing venue. The only 2 things I can say that I wish they had was some signs to tell your guests to be careful in the courtyard and leave the plants alone, while we had our own signs I sometimes still felt like I had to police the area, out of respect for the beautiful plants in the yard. The other thing is the flexibility is a 4.5 ONLY because we felt rushed on Saturday to finish setting up, I wish we could have come in about 2 hours earlier to work out some small issues but in the end they were minor and everyone had a great time, and loved the place. If you're having trouble deciding on a venue book this place fast, find a caterer (I recommend Augies Elite Catering), a DJ(I know a good one as well)Photographer and have a blast on your big day!!

Beautiful venue, great price, amazing staff!!! B.G. O'Reilly was an amazing help at the hall. Any questions were answered within 2 days.

The only downfall, there were not enough chairs for the ceremony in the courtyard. Had to rent at last minute - it all work out though.

Beautiful gardens with enough space to hold the ceremony indoors if it rains. We loved having so many nooks and crannies to set up different 'stations' like a photo booth, bar, lounge, etc. B.G. is a wonderful man to work with and does his best to accommodate your wishes. Just remember that this is a historical building so you are restricted in decorating - no candles, nails or tape!

This is such a beautifal place. They have a hall and an enclosed garden which is so beautifal. B. G. O'Reiley was very easy to work with. He will even let you in the day before and the day after your event if there are no other events schedualed there, for you to decorate and or clean up from your event. I would recommend this facility to anyone who wants to get married in a garden but also have a backup plan right there on site.
