Norfolk Botanical Gardens was everything we could have dreamed of and more for our wedding! Liz was great; she was responsive to emails and very helpful with the millions of little questions we had. We chose the Butterfly Garden for our ceremony, Baker Hall Terrace for cocktail hour and Baker Hall for our reception. Everything was laid our exactly as we set up. Liz was there the day of and drove us around, made sure we had everything we needed and suggested some amazing locations for our photos, pointing out the places that were in bloom that weekend! If we were to do it all over again, we'd still pick Liz at NBG!

Liz, a wedding coordinator with the garden is wonderful. We had our reception in Baker Hall. While it looks small during visiting hours, it works very well as a reception space. If I had to do the day over, I would pick the Botanical gardens again.

My husband and I had our wedding at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens on October 8th. They were fantastic! They just got an entire new team for weddings, and we worked with Liz. Liz was wonderful! Before the wedding she was always available via email for any questions or concerns I had (I'm sure she would have been available via phone as well, I just don't like talking on the phone much). There were several times when I wanted to stop in to take a measurement of something for decorations or try to figure out layouts for the reception and ceremony or come show our parents/bridal party the venue, and as long as there wasn't another event happening at the time, Liz would let us come in. She was very flexible and understanding with us! One day when we came to try to figure out the layout for the ceremony, there were two men at our site setting up chairs for a ceremony later that day. They were WONDERFUL! They let us move the chairs around to figure out how we wanted them and they gave us some GREAT advice on setups!

On the actual wedding day, Liz drove us in the golf cart to the ceremony site and back to the reception site after our pictures. She even spread and straightened my dress for me right before I walked down the aisle!! Our wedding coordinator (who we brought in separate from the gardens) was not the best. She was somewhat rude and really stressed us out rather than help us, but Liz was there and totally calmed everyone down and she helped out a LOT! The Gardens themselves were as beautiful as anyone could hope for for their wedding. The one downside to our wedding was the coordinator we brought in, but Liz and the other staff we had completely made up for that. They went above and beyond what I expected and they helped to make our wedding truly memorable! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Baker Hall and it was absolutely beautiful. We worked with Liz who was very attentive and professional throughout our planning process. We were unable to have our rehearsal at the venue due to inclement weather causing the entrance to the garden to flood and Liz was quick to relay this information so we could plan accordingly. Liz played a vital part in our wedding going smoothly despite the weather. We were very pleased with the venue and how it was presented to our guests.

I can't express how wonderful the Norfolk Botanical Garden is for a wedding! It's absolutely gorgeous and the wedding department is wonderful to work with. Liz Le made sure we had everything we needed before the big day and was always an email or call away if I had a question. We were so glad we picked this location for our wedding because of the beauty in itself we felt as if we didn't have to decorate a lot for it would seem to over done if we did.

Norfolk Botanical Garden was perfect for us. There are many different sites to pick from, all of them beautiful and varying in size. The Bristow Butterfly Gardens was smaller and more secluded, which was just what we wanted. All of the staff we encountered was friendly, and the wedding coordinators were fabulous.

Amanda Hupp and Kristina Avera coordinated with me and were eager to help and answer all of my questions. The entire ceremony ran smoothly. There was a small miscommunication about transportation that was very easily and quickly resolved.

Norfolk Botanical Garden was wonderful to work with! They were so easy to set meetings up with, and were always organized and professional during all communication and scheduled meetings. They would even meet with us if we happened to be at the Garden and had a question. Amanda Hupp, our wedding coordinator, was extremely prompt during all communication, and was a pleasure to work with. The day of our wedding we didn't worry about anything, because we knew all the details would be taken care of. I recommend their services to anyone planning an event and looking for a quality, professional vendor!
