My wedding at The Inn at Hudson Gardens on Feb. 23 was wonderful. I loved the space and loved how everything came together. Karen was our contact, and she was responsive and helpful. Since Hudson Gardens does not have coordinators at the event, I definitely recommend having a day of event coordinator to help get everything in place since the space is raw. But it was beautiful with the fireplaces and the chandeliers, and is a wonderful venue for a wedding!

Hudson Gardens was such a beautiful place to get married. We got married in the lawn outside of The Inn (the log cabin) and our reception was inside The Inn. When I was looking for locations, I kept coming back to Hudson Gardens and I am so glad I did because it turned out the way I always dreamed. The staff at Hudson Gardens were flexible the whole year as I called several times to bring my family by and were helpful with their advice before the wedding. Very flexible with the rehearsal, we weren't pushed out at a certain time. The sceneray is just beautiful and we got amazing pictures!!! It was a fairy tale dream come true!! If you have never been to Hudson Gardens, I highly recommend just walking through and seeing the Gardens!

As a wedding and event coordinator, I know how hard and stressful it can be to book your events and work with vendors and location managers. The staff at the Hudson Gardens were some of the best and most accomidating. I was blessed to have my wedding there and would definitley recommend it to other people for both summer and winter events!

We rented the Inn at Hudson Gardens for our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception. Our event coordinator Denise was extremely helpful and responsive to our needs. We chose the Inn because it was an indoor setting with the availability of having the ceremony outdoors in the adjacent garden patio area. We were hoping to have the ceremony outdoors and then the reception, which was in the evening hours, indoors. However, true to Colorado weather, in mid-May we had snow, sleet and rain, so we had the ceremony indoors (which we had alternatively planned for in advance just in case). That was the nice thing about having the ceremony and reception at the Inn, because we did not have to worry about weather and that brought peace of mind for my daughter's important event. The Inn and surrounding garden areas are very lovely settings for weddings and we were extremely pleased Hudson Gardens.

Amazing venue! Our wedding was at the Inn. A little log cabin with beautiful lighting and homey feel. The staff is some of the nicest people and helped out very much with everything we needed. Ours was out of season so the cost was very small (which helped us out A LOT). I did not have to raise a finger that day except for me to get ready and take pictures. The whole place looked amazing for the wedding and i was blown away.

Hudson Gardens is located 12 miles southwest of downtown Denver in Littleton, Colorado. During the summer, the gardens are bustling with activity from weddings, concerts and 5k runs to reunions and corporate events.
The beautiful gardens encompass over 30 acres of land nestled up against the South Platte River and offer up a host of photo opportunities. The bridges, ponds, fountains and much more give the bridge and groom endless possibilities for memorable photos.

There are multiple locations on the property to host a wedding. The Inn, Garden Center and Welcome Garden are the three possible reception locations. In addition to these facilities, there are multiple locations for outdoor ceremonies. The two most popular are the Rose Garden and Monet's Place. Hudson Gardens is most proud of the newly developed Monet's Place. It is set far away from the parking lot and nearby busy Santa Fe. The ceremony takes place steps away from a meandering pond under grand trees. It is impossible to take bad pictures here. The nearby Welcome Garden Pavilion is closest to this ceremony location...cont'd READ THE REST OF THE REVIEW ON OUR BLOG HERE http://tinyurl.com/2685owj

Hudson Gardens is a localy little spot. We were fortuante enough to use the Monet's Place for our ceremony and the new Welcome Tent for the reception. It's a really gorgeous spot, clean, organized and with a great staff. The tents are heated/air conditioned, but also have great doors that you can open up if you get a great Colorado day. There's a lovely lawn outside the tent that's perfect for a cocktail hour. The gardens are so lush that you really don't need additional decor out there and the tent is a fabulous blank canvass that allows you to create exactly what is in your mind. For us, that was wall graffiti, LOTS of paper lanterns and flowers. They're very flexible and by using it, you're supporting the Gardens, a great culurtal place that's open to everyone! They also let you bring in your choice of caterers and bar, which is fantastic. Denise is great, very flexible and warm! WE LOVED HUDSON GARDENS!!

This review is provided by the mother of the bride.

Hudson Gardens is a lovely venue with several options for weddings. I found the staff to be very helpful and responsive, and their pricing to be quite competitive relative to other venues in the area.

If you decide to use Hudson Gardens, take their written rules seriously. They have very specific guidelines, they communicate them clearly, and they hold you to them. If you feel that you have to be able to do shots in the dressing area or parking lot prior to the ceremony, this is not the place for you. They are stringent in enforcement of their alcohol guidelines. That being said, you are allowed to provide your own alcohol (a huge $$ savings) as long as you have a qualified bartender who serves all of the alcohol within their guidelines.

I was a little concerned that we had to use their approved vendors for anything we didn't provide ourselves. However, I found all of the vendors I worked with to be excellent, and I think Hudson Gardens has done a good job of vetting the vendors in advance.

The other issue is that if you are marrying at a popular time of year, you may not be able to have a rehearsal. The venues are booked solid a lot of the time and it is sometimes difficult to find a time slot that works. This is also something that they tell you before you sign the contract. The did work with us to find a time slot for our rehearsal, and we were able to do a quick walk through the day before the wedding.

I had no problem with any of their guidelines, we found them to be reasonable and we were easily able to work within them. We had our ceremony and reception at the Inn and absolutely loved it.

I recommend them for a lovely indoor or outdoor wedding.

Hudson Gardens was fantastic to work with. Venue was beautiful. The money we gave them went right back to maintaining the gardens, so we felt great about hosting our wedding ceremony and reception there. The staff was easy to work with, knowledgeable, and pleasant. Because it is a garden, there are a few rules, such as no open flames, but that policy was easy to work around. This was a perfect place for our wedding and we would recommend it to others, hands down.

This venue is Awesome. While looking around at venues, we constantly heard that this was THE PLACE, and for our 200 guests, it was perfect. In addition to use of the gardens for photos, there was a staging area where we could meet, distribute flowers and etc. While there are no cooking facilities, there is a nice walk-in fridge and large work space.(The caterers have on-site facilities they can bring) Part of the rental includes tables and chairs, A/C and gas fireplace, bride room (which we didn't even use), small groom room (again, unused by our party). We had a really fun night and found Hudson Gardens to be part of a memory we will forever cherish.

Hudson Gardens is a beautiful venue with an amazing feel of Colorado. My wedding was at the Inn and in March. My plan was for an outdoor ceremony but the weather did not melt all the snow and ice so we had the most amazing wedding ceremony and reception at the Inn. The log cabin was the exact feel of Colorado we desired and all of our out of town guest loved the venue. I highly recommend Hudson Gardens for a Wedding the staff know what they are doing and added great value to my event.

Hudson Gardens was an absolutely beautiful location for our summer wedding! Everyone was super helpful (especially Denise!) We had our wedding on a Thursday night because it was way to expensive for us on a weekend, but I guess it was probably comparable to other locations. They returned our deposit in full about exactly a month after our wedding date- that was nice! We really have no complaints... I would recommend this venue to anyone. They are highly specialized in weddings and are able to cater to any need. Thank you Hudson Gardens for providing a beautiful location for our special day!

I was very pleased with my wedding ceremony at Hudson Gardens(we were married in the Rose Garden). I have recieved many compliments on the beauty and simplicity of the ceremony and location. The Rose Garden has a fountain in the background, so I do recommend using a microphone so your guests can hear what is being said. Although it was a little pricier than some locations, Denise (the wedding coordinator) was amazing to work with. She was prompt with her responses, and willing to help out in any way!
I have already recommended Hudson Gardens to my friends- and my videographer!

We used Hudson Gardens for our reception. I hired a wedding coordinator, so I didn't do much of the communication. However, the INN is a PERFECT reception venue if you have a smaller wedding guest count. I had around 90 people, and it was cozy and intimate. Everyone had room to dance, and there was plently of room had I had more guests. You can set up the room to make it spacious, cozy or make room for 150 plus if needed. The fire place is super cute, and there is a separate room just for food and drinks! IT was AMAZING! The price is decent, however you have to pay $750.00 for an extra hour :-( But it is worth it!

We had a ceremony only at Hudson Gardens. We did not have a place for the bride & bridemaids to get dressed. They offered the public restroom. We got completely ready at home and then put our dresses on there. It would have been nice if they had a bride's room to get dressed in.

Another wedding was starting immediately after our 2 hour time slot and we had to be out of the way, so do your photos before and after to get them all in.

Hudson Gardens provided a beautiful backdrop for our summer afternoon wedding. We chose a Friday daytime slot, which made the cost to book the venue very affordable compared to all other venues we considered. The Inn was an ideal place to do an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. The air conditioning in the Inn was a huge relief for our guests on a hot July day. The Inn is also a great choice if you want an outdoor wedding with a little privacy -- it is set apart from the rest of the gardens and feels more intimate.

The on-site event coordinator, Penny, was great. She talked us through all the details of the event and answered all our questions.

We could not have asked for a better setting -- the photos look amazing with the mountains in the background, and the flowers, trees and fountains all around the gardens.

The Gardens were beautiful!!! I had my small (30ppl)family ceremony at Monnet's Place and it was absolutely perfect. The addition of the pulpit, astroturff and stone walkway ensured that come rain or shine the location would be accessible and dry. I would highly reccomend this site for anyone hosting 100ppl or less. We then moved our guests to the Welcom Garden for our reception. It was just lovely having all the roses and flowers as our backdrop. If I may make a suggestion, use a rickshaw, like we did. It added an extra special touch for all of our guests to get from location to location. As bride and groom we also got a special ride around the whole garden. It was great!

We loved the Hudson Gardens. It was a lovely place to take wedding photos. The Inn was so adorable with plenty of space, a nice ambiance, and good air conditioning. The outdoor ceremony spot was perfect. All of the chairs and equipment they provide are of good quality. There is ample dressing room space, although we ended up getting dressed at the hotel because the venue was not available early enough. While we felt good about spending money on a community garden, the rates for adding an extra hour or two were very steep; hence our wedding felt a little rushed.

I LOVED the beautiful grounds and how this location is really set to accommodate wedding parties. They have chairs and tables so you don't have to rent those separate which is nice. Also, their tents have the string lights which are so fun! Be aware that you MUST choose one of their vendors for things like food and sound systems but they really make sure to have a wide variety of choices - from the budget conscious bride to the extravaganza bride.

Denise was very helpful and so willing to work my fiancee, me and my family as we figured out schedules and finances. Be aware that you don't get to choose your 30 minute rehearsal time slot - Denise lets you know when they have availability and you choose from there. But she was generous in the days and time frames so it really wasn't that difficult.

Our guests enjoyed the location and commented on how gorgeous it was. You really can't mess up wedding photos here!

I also had a summer wedding and Foreigner played at the opposite end of the Gardens. I was SUPER concerned about their concert overpowering my wedding but you couldn't hear them at all - especially if you have your own music playing in the tent. It was great and I am SO happy that I got married here!

This is a beautiful venue - breathtaking views at any angle, with flowers all around. I saved lots of money on flowers during the ceremony! However they did say that the wooden arch would have white roses and it didn't, but it wasn't a big deal. Although it is a little pricey compared with other venues, and they have quite a few restrictions on decorations, all in all it was a beautiful place and I wouldn't have wanted our wedding anywhere else. The staff was wonderful, very courteous and responsive.

We had our wedding outside of the Inn and the reception at the Inn. I would really recommend that location. It was beautiful! The whole setting felt magical. They weren't super flexible, but I'm guessing that they really can't be since they do so many weddings.

They were great to work with. The only thing that was irritating was that you are required to use Event Rents (very pricey) for all of your linens, china, etc. We had to cut corners with that (non floor length linens, plastic bar cups, etc), but it still was around $1000 in rentals from them. All of the other vendor options were open except that. It was really nice to be able to choice all of the other vendors and to bring in your own alcohol. It saved us a lot of money.

I can't begin to relate how pleased my wife and I were with the service we received from Hudson Gardens. The ladies there were very friendly and helpful, and provided some great advise and recommendations throughout the entire planning process. Not only that, but the venue was beautiful and by far the best value we could find for the area and time we needed. In the end, if you're looking for an outdoor venue, this one should not be overlooked. Many thanks to Hudson for a wonderful and memorable day!

I loved the Hudson Gardens venue. Our wedding was in the Rose Garden with the reception in the Garden Canopy. I have received SO many compliments about how pretty everything was. Yu don't have to add much decoration because the scenery is already incredible. However, we added uplighting to the tent for some evening ambiance, and it was beautifully blue. This is definitely worth it if your DJ or somebody offers it. The only issue that I had with HG is that you can't schedule your Rehearsal until 2-3 weeks from the wedding. If you have out of town members of your bridal party, this presents a problem. We held our rehearsal off site so that we could plan and make sure our bridal party had time to book flights and so forth. Everything worked out, but it would have been nice to have the rehearsal at the venue with more time in advance. Denise is a pleasure to work with. She was very helpful and gave us many suggestions on how to improve our ideas. Thanks Denise!

Hudson Gardens is beautiful and was perfect for our wedding. We had the ceremony in the yard of the Inn and the reception in the Inn. The brides room was spacious and provided a great setting for me and my 7 bridesmaids t prepare. It did get a little hot in the room for a 5pm wedding. The Inn has lights on the ceiling that look like stars when the main lights are out. It has a great set up for buffet and food in one room with large banquet and dance area in the other room.

The overall price it a bit high and the venue really provides no other services. You have to use their preferred vendors and they are on the high end of price when looking for catering. The caterers do all the set up, food, bartending, and most of all clean up - but you are at their honor to do the right clean up according to Hudson Gardens requirements unless you stay and watch them clean up. Your deposit return rests on them and their staff. Being able to bring in your own liquor is a big money saver, and your caterer has the liquor license to dispense and card your guests.

Over all we loved Hudson Gardens and would recommend it highly. We will treasure our memories and pictures from the day - very little in decorating needs to be done - you can't top mother nature AND the groundkeepers at Hudson Gardens.

My husband and I absolutely loved the Hudson Gardens and we received SO MANY compliments from our guests. We chose the Conifer Knoll and the Inn as our ceremony and reception site. It was spectacular! The Inn was awesome for the hot summer day because it is air conditioned and gave everyone a break from the sun. The only thing I was unhappy with was the communication between our DJ and the Hudson Gardens rep at the event. I guess the DJ was required to stop playing 15 minutes prior to the "end time" of our wedding per the rep that was there and we were never told that, so we thought the DJ had shorted us when it was the other way around! But other than that we couldn't be happier. It's perfect for those couples who want an outdoor wedding near the mountains but don't want to pay Aspen, Vail, Estes Park, etc. prices! I would definitely reccommend to others.

The best thing about the Hudson Gardens is that they're BEAUTIFUL! And very, very shaded which is fabulous if you're getting married in June, July or August. We got married at Monet's Place (which they have recently revamped, beautifully) and our reception was in the Welcome Garden. The only thing I didn't like with the Welcome Garden is that the lighting is weird. You are allowed to hire a company to hang lights, but the bid I received was around $5,500. But we made due, and I'm not sure anyone really cared. Although the Hudson Gardens is on the more expensive side, it really is a beautiful venue that I highly recommend.

We had our ceremony at "Monet's Place". We could not have been happier. It was a beautiful setting and provided the most fantastic backdrop for our pictures. If you are looking for a garden wedding, this is the perfect spot. My only concern was the "back-up" plan in case of rain was not ideal (a covered stage where they have concerts)....luckily we never had to go to plan B.

Had a beautiful wedding at Hudson Gardens! I really enjoyed working with Denise, who was my contact for the contract etc. I ended up planning the reception at the Inn, and since it was a Thursday and no one else had contracted the Rose Garden, I had my ceremony there! The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because they are very strict on their rules and regulations. For example, the contract states that if even ONE rose petal is not picked up after the ceremony, you could forfeit your entire deposit. No sparklers at the venue. Also, the music must end 15 minutes before your contracted time is finished. So if guests are there till midnight, bar must close at 11:30 and music must end at 11:45. Times there are exceptionally strict. I would not hesitate to have another event there, and I would gladly work with Denise again - but be sure you read the ENTIRE contract so you're not surprised or frustrated with expectations. If you're clear with the rules, it's truly a beautiful location!

The venue is beautiful. I had a wonderful experience with Denise. They don't do anything for you, so keep that in mind before booking. They are a venue only and it is your caterer's sole responsibility to do all coordinating. Make sure you hire a knowledgeable caterer who has worked at the venue before. They take great care of the grounds and their staff is friendly. I had a hard time getting over the multiple events at once, which is why I rented it for 12 hours so I wouldn't have to run into another event. It was a big concern of mine, but we were done with the ceremony and cocktail hour before the next event even started and were still able to stay until Midnight. It costs more money, but is totally worth it. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a venue.

The venue is absolutely gorgeous and is perfect for photography. The person who gave us a tour was rude, but we didn't have to deal with her on our wedding day since we got married on Sunday. While giving us a tour, she got in the way of a wedding group having their photos taken, and she didn't even care. She was asked to move out of the way. Then she was rude to the DJ that was setting up his equipment. All in all, we loved the venue based on it's beauty. We were just glad they don't provide tours on Sundays.

As stated in another review, I was also excited to get married outside in a beautiful garden, the Rose Garden to be exact. However 4 months before our wedding they decided to rip out the whole rose garden and replant it! I showed up one day after doing a test drive, and saw all the construction. I had no idea what was going on. They didn't call and tell us they would be doing this or give us an option to change sites on their property either, and I was just told that it would be complete before our wedding day. It all turned out OK in the end though. The lesson I learned: ask the site you are considering for your wedding if they have any renovations planned before your big day!

Hudson Gardens is such a beautiful wedding venue!! Our particular wedding night was perfect, the weather was beautiful and since it was August everything was in full bloom and stunning! We got married in the Rose Garden with the reception in the Garden Canopy, which I highly recommend. We booked a Saturday night, which costs quite a bit more, we do wish we could have gotten more hours for the money (it costs quite a bit to add on hours). We ended the reception at 10:30 and went to a bar in downtown Littleton so we could spend more time with wedding guests. Hudson Gardens are very strict with their polices, including not having alcohol in the dressing rooms and the flower girl couldn't throw flower petals during the processional. Regardless of my minor complaints I would recommend Hudson Gardens, it's just good to know what to expect.

The Gardens are beautiful! The only issue we had is that they don't provide linens (we just wanted basic white) or have tables other than 5' rounds and 6' banquets. So if you want cabaret tables outside or a sweetheart table, you're on your own. They also host over 300 weddings a year. Because of this I felt like I was responsible for initiating contact on things like a walk through, even though they told me that they would take charge of that with the caterer. Also, our contact at the venue went on a week-long vacation right before our wedding and we didn't even get a heads up.

Positives: Hudson Gardens has beautiful scenery for your big day. We were married in Monet's Place and had our reception at the Welcome Garden Pavilion. I received many compliments on our site and, combined with the weather, we had a beautiful wedding. It was also a huge plus to have our ceremony and reception at the same location. I highly recommend this, as guests appreciate not having to drive around town and it gave us more time for pictures.
Negatives: The scenery, unfortunately, was the only thing I didn't have trouble with at Hudson. While they allow you to bring in your own caterer and alcohol, they have a list from you to choose from regarding these vendors- you are not able to choose any caterer you want. The caterer we choose lived up to the food expectations, but service was another story. When I asked Hudson to bring in a caterer not on the list, I was treated rudely and told absolutely not. Also, Hudson has very strict decorating rules and makes you pay for extra time to decorate. We wanted Tiki Torches (it is an outside wedding), but you cannot have any flame exposed whatsoever. This includes candles on the tables. Once we paid for the extra time to decorate, in the middle of our paid time, the event coordinator at Hudson had a rehearsal in the middle of our wedding ceremony site, while it was being decorated! We can't set up alter pieces, chairs and flowers when people are standing in the middle of it. I couldn't believe that I had to stress about this detail an hour before my wedding.
Overall: Beautiful background, but prepare to have to battle along the way.

Once we paid for the extra time to decorate, in the middle of our paid time, the event coordinator at Hudson had a rehearsal in the middle of our wedding ceremony site, while it was being decorated! We can't set up alter pieces, chairs and flowers when people are standing in the middle of it. I couldn't believe that I had to stress about this detail an hour before my wedding.
Overall: Beautiful background, but prepare to have to battle along the way. Read less

They were great - and it's a beautiful spot, but they weren't super flexible. Also, the traffic on Santa Fe can be a little loud.

It was a beautiful place for a wedding! We had our wedding in December at The Inn, it was gorgeous. You can take so many beautiful pictures on the grounds. It is a little bit pricey but you get what you pay for. Hudson Gardens is not very hands on, you basically sign the contract with them and then you have to figure out everything else. But I would recommend it, it is a beautiful place!

This was one of the only areas that I thought kind of fell through in all our vendors and planning of our whole wedding. I was so excited to get married outside in a beautiful garden, under a rose arbor and pictured Hudson Gardens as the perfect place. However 5 months before our wedding they decided to rip out the whole rose garden and replant it! I understand that they needed to do this, but they didn't even call and tell us they would be doing this or give us an option to change sites on their property. I was heartbroken when I saw how bare the arbor was. They only way they made up for it was by giving us an extra hour ahead of time to decorate and how charge us for an extra hour on the other end. But then the lady we'd been dealing with didn't even show up on the day of the wedding! She was nowhere to be found when our rental company couldn't find the chairs and nowhere to be found when our florist needed a ladder. The rest of the gardens looked great and we still had great pictures but she could have handled the whole situation much more professional.

The Venue was very beautiful! We really enjoyed the Inn and had a wonderful time. It was slightly difficult to book and we had some difficulty scheduling meetings with the event coordinators. They were manning the gift shop during our meeting which seemed very unprofessional. They were also very negative about past situations that had occurred at their venue, making us feel uneasy. The booking process felt more like a business transaction rather than the relaxing and reassuring experience it should have been. Overall, the venue itself was amazing and we would recommend it to anyone, just be prepared for the booking process.

In general, Hudson Gardens was a very good venue, especially once my original contact left and a new person was brought in. However, it was extremely expensive. We very much enjoyed having our wedding and reception there, but I felt the costs were higher than they should be considering they include nothing but the space.

This is a beautiful venue to get married in. We chose the Rose Garden and the Garden canopy. The venue itself was gorgeous, but there were a few things that made me mark this place down a bit. It was somewhat difficult to get timely responses back from the venue rental office. I had paid off the venue in full about a month before the final amount was due, and they sent me a reminder to pay the remaining balance about a week or so before the final amount was due. I had to contact them to prove that I had already paid off the final amount. Also, when we looked at the venue, I specifically asked if there were going to be any renovations done to the Rose Garden or Garden Canopy. I was told no, because they had done a few renovations to that garden a couple years ago. Then, about a month before the wedding, we had our walkthrough, and low and behold, they had torn out half of the Oval Garden that helped disguise the wedding party from view as they come down the wedding walkway, they put in an ugly line of trees, and they added a new water pond feature nearby (which is fine, but unexpected). My fiance and I were pretty upset about it because we had specifically asked if there were going to be any changes to that area, and we were lied to prior to signing our contract. Furthermore, Hudson didn't contact us to tell us that there were any changes to that area, we only found out at the walkthrough when they really couldn't hide the fact that they had done some major changes over there. If you are going to run an event center, then you should have the professional courtesy to let people know when you are doing some major changes to the venue they have chosen. On the good side, the dressing rooms, Rose Garden, and Garden Canopy were immediately accessible upon our arrival. Hudson has a list of approved caterers that you can work with, and while many of them are pricey, there are a few good ones for the budget-minded couple. Also, it was really nice to have a place where you could have the wedding ceremony and reception in the same spot. They also have very reasonable weekday pricing.

Let us say this first: Hudson Gardens is BEAUTIFUL. We loved the grounds; everything was so picturesque and just as we had always dreamed of for our wedding.

BUT if you are looking for anything more, this is not your place. The customer service was nonexistent. The only times we were able to correspond with the staff were when they need us to sign a contract or pay money. We never even saw any of them on the day of our wedding except when they told us we needed to leave 15 minutes earlier than scheduled. I suppose unobtrusive is a good quality, but we expected maybe a small congratulations or something. We payed all that money for them to simply unlock a door and allow us in. And even that happens late in the afternoon for an evening wedding. They would not let us set up before 5pm despite there not being an event before our wedding. I couldn't get ready in the bridal suite because they opened the doors to us so late (you can purchase an extra hour for hefty fee). We were having such a great time at our reception and we had everyone dancing but that only lasted for an hour because of the time restrictions. There are some seemingly absurd rules such as no kegs and no tossing flower petals. We had a wonderful wedding, but very little credit for that is due to Hudson Gardens and the staff there.

Book with caution. If we could do it over again, we would definitely look for someplace where we could have the venue for the whole day, and have staff who were willing to help make our day great. Or at least show some interest in us beyond just being another wedding to them and another $5000.

The Hudson Gardens was beautiful, but the day before we notice there was goose poop ALL over our ceremony site. We asked them to clean it up which they said they would, but there idea of cleaning it up was hosing it down so there was just wet goose poop everywhere the morning of my wedding. We ended up having to clean it up ourselves before the ceremony.

Hudson Gardens was my number one choice for my venue when we began our wedding planning. I had attended weddings and events before, and I thought it was one of the most beautiful places. The venue and gardens definitely lived up to everything that I had hoped for.

However, the flexibility and customer service was not to expected when paying as much as I did. While the coordinators were there for questions when I was planning, the day of my wedding I felt rushed and like I was an inconvenience.

We signed a contract about only serving alcohol through our caterer, i.e. no self-service. However, when the Hudson Gardens staff found out that my father had a bottle of whiskey in the dressing room, he was threatened to be asked to leave if he did not dispose of it. The whiskey was a present from him to my husband, and the only way that would've been found is if a staff member was going through our things in the dressing room. My father gladly removed it, but the attitude that he received was completely uncalled for.

I also had the venue until 11pm. While I was informed that the last hour was scheduled for clean up, I did not realize that my guests and I would be shooed out during that hour. No one told me (until my DJ informed me) that our music must be over 9:30, which then made myself along with all my guests feel like we were in the way. There were a few other little things through-out the wedding that just made me feel like I was putting any Hudson Gardens staff out.

While I absolutely loved the gardens themselves, I don't think that the price is worth feeling rushed on a day that is so important to my husband, family and I, which is just sad. It's unfortunate that the beauty of the venue is over-shadowed by the customer service of the staff.

My Fiance and I were super excited to have our wedding there! Karen one of the event coordinators was amazing we loved her. The day we went to put our deposit down we met Dennise. Horrible woman, rude to all the customers in the shop, rude to me, my mother and fiance. When we got to her office to fill out a contract a young female pastor came in and asked a few simple questions about where to meet her wedding party at. Dennise jumped down her throat and as soon as the pastor was out of the room began bad mouthing her and all these other people to me. Disgusted I called the head of the facility Rich Meridith. I asked that I not work with Dennise ever again and only Karen from there on out. 5 days later I get a message where all he does is defend her over my voicemail for 6 minutes, then in the last 30 seconds gives a quick I don't care style apology and asks us to continue buisness with them. After taking a week to think it over we said fine lets deal with these rude people and have a beautiful wedding. (the gardens are very beautiful) I sent the contract in only to get an email back saying that due to our lack of communication they believe "thier" gardens are not a good choice for us and good luck in searching else where. Never been treated so rudely! The place is beautiful but be careful of the staff!!!
