Pickwick Gardens is a beautiful wedding venue, and very affordable as well. Robbie was our event coordinator and I couldn't have asked for anyone better! She was so helpful right from the start, and her professionalism made me feel really confident that everything would go smoothly on our wedding day. There were a few minor glitches during the actual reception however. First, when we arrived after the cocktail hour, we found that the bridal suite was crammed with chairs. Like, literally, floor to ceiling stacks of chairs, to the point that I could hardly fit in. How was I supposed to get ready with 3 feet of space? Well the wait staff really couldn't have cared less. Their solution? "We'll take all the chairs out when dinner is served." I would've liked to have had my hair and makeup touched up before dinner, you know, when all the pictures are taken...but we survived. Second, there was some sort of drama with the party in the room next door to ours. I'm not really sure what even happened because I really wasn't trying to get involved in that on my wedding day, but what annoyed me was that a waiter came up to me and said "Could you please tell your guests not to go into the room next door?" Umm, first, the rooms have a shared bathroom, and second, I really think there are many better people to ask than the bride herself. Like say, anybody else. So I took some points off for their professionalism and quality of service for those two little things. But those were just 2 minor details of the night, and overall I had a fantastic experience with this venue. Not to mention the gardens are absolutely beautiful! Oh, and the food was delicious!

I absolutely loved my wedding experience with Pickwick Gardens, especially with Kristen Sagona. She was super sweet, fun, and exciting, and spent lots of time with me to understand my vision. She has tons of experience so could offer excellent advice on every topic. Every vendor that she recommended did such an amazing job. I had my ceremony and reception outside in the gardens and it was so beautiful-truly my dream wedding. The food was also delicious. Kristen was there the entire day of the wedding to help coordinate everything-and everything was completely seamless. I would recommend this venue to any bride!

Robbie Boatwright at Pickwick was one of the best and most professional event planners I have ever worked with! She was very responsive to our special requests and knew when to chime in without being pushy. Working together, we put on a fabulous ceremony and reception all outdoors in the gardens and it was truly memorable. A friend recommended this place to us for our wedding because the grounds are beautiful and their wedding packages are very affordable, and it turned out to be completely true! They throw a great wedding and reception and I would be happy to recommend them to anyone!!

The above business leases the facility for events such as weddings, etc.. On 3/17/2011, we contracted with them to hold our daughters wedding on 7/3/11 and paid a deposit of $1425. On May 17, 2011, we informed them that we had to
reschedule but did not have the final date. They immediately withdrew the balance of $4271.55 and asked us to sign a letter releasing the space. The letter asked us to confirm that entire deposit will be forfeited unless we held our ceremony prior to Jan 31, 2012. We did send them a letter just stating
that the space is released so that they could schedule another event on that date. Around March-2012, we asked them to reschedule the event for May 11. 2012 which they refused.

We strongly feel that above business employs unfair and deceptive tactics to get the customers to sign one-sided contracts when they are most vulnerable.
They. then deploy heavy-handed tactics to extract and forfeit the money from customers without providing any services.

Pickwick Gardens is the place to go for your ceremony site. The garden is absolutely beautiful - roses were in bloom, the fountain was running, the trees were in bloom, everything was perfect! We had our July 2nd wedding here, and though it was hot, the garden decreased the heat factor. The ceremony came with 2 alter arrangements, ceremony music, chair set-up under a canopy with fans, ice water for guests, an isle runner and a bridal room (of which we got 2). We couldn't have imagined having it anywhere else.

The people there are wonderful as well! Thank you Kristen for everything (including fixing my garter before I walked down the isle :) and for holding my train). Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to our wedding. It was absolutely wonderful, and we couldn't have imagined working with anyone else!

Kristen was my event coordinator and she was so awesome! She helped me stay calm when I got the pre wedding jitters and made sure everything ran smooth. We only had our ceremony here, but it was beautiful, the best value for our money. The package came with flower arrangements and they were exactly what I wanted. I would refer anyone here!

This venue was amazing across the board. Robbie Boatwright was our event planner and she was very helpful and accomodating. She was always quick to respond with any questions we have. The staff that worked our event was attentive and kept everything moving/on time. My husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing that day because they were so organized. I recommend Pickwich and know that you will have a great event there.

Kristin Stavert was my coordinator at this venue. I won the ceremony at their Bridal Show and was able to get them to work with my budget. They show packages to choose from, but if you let them know you need something less pricey per head, they can work with you. The venue was beautiful and they were flexible on the usage of the bridal suite. I was able to lock up my things in the suite until after my reception.

Robbie is the best she does such a great job of making you feel great but... the staff are not half as helpful as she and she was there only for the ceremony. They really were just unprofessional and really rude they have no idea how to handle common situations; which was a surprise to me since Robbie seemed so on top of things. But the venue is beautiful and the food is tasty I would recomend it if you were to host the bar or were 100% SURE no one is going to try to sneak in drinks otherwise they might shutdown your wedding early like mine was.

Robbie was great! She made me feel important and like my opinion really mattered. She went above and beyond her call of duty to make sure we were able to see/use the gardens/banquet room whenever we needed to, and was fantastic with running the rehearsal! I got nothing but fabulous feedback about the ceremony and reception. Everyone loved it!!!

Robi was *fabulous*! The venue was *beautiful*. Everyone was very pleased. The only snag was the cook put cheese on the vegan pasta dish. They remade pasta for my mother and the officiant who were the most strict vegans in attendance. Other than that, everything was beautiful.

The location is very beautiful - we didn't have our wedding here, just the reception. The food was very good, and they were flexible on the menu choices, and worked with us on the pricing. They were available ahead of time for the vendors (florist/cake/DJ) to get in and set up.
