Although this was a beautiful venue, I was abit disappointed at the lack of lighting for evening weddings. When I mentined this to the "coordinator", her response was:"Well, we only have to worry about it for a few months out of the year, so it is probably not worth having anything done about it" I was a bit shocked as they advertise year round weddings. We hired a lighting company.
We did have a gorgeous event and were very happy except with the ladies that were supposed to assist and guide us throughthe wedding. They were extrememly friendly and helpful the rehearsal evening, but very difficult to locate the night of the wedding. The garden is a maze of wonderful views, but unless you know where you are going, kind of difficult to maneuver. We were hoping the coordinators would be there to assist, again unable to locate them. We had an excellant DJ that helped pick up the slack. Overall it was a beautiful place, I would just make sure, to make it clear to whoever is there to assist, you expect their assistance.

First off the Sunken Gardens is a VERY nice venue to have your wedding, it is simply beautiful. My only complaint is with the associated cost and what you get for your money. Be sure you understand exactly what you are getting for your "package" and realize its not much. Also be prepared for the additional fee the caterer will have to charge you and that you have only one choice on bar service (no flexibility) The staff was very helpful the day of the event and after helping with breakdown.

Not only is Sunken Gardens absolutely gorgeous itself, the staff at this venue are absolutely amazing to work with. Sarah Carvalis, Natalie White, Stacey Faqua, and Barbara (so sorry, I don't know her last name) were just a few of the wonderful employees with whom we had the pleasure of sharing our wedding!

We got married in the Oak Pavilion; we had a smaller wedding (~80 people) and loved the backdrop of the gardens with the brick layout extending throughout. My husband and I got engaged under an oak tree, so it was important to us to carry the symbolism of an oak with us into our ceremony. The Sunken Gardens Oak Pavilion was perfect!!! The Garden Room, where we had our reception, was perfectly sized and was VERY easy to decorate and make our own. The rest of the gardens, where we took our pictures, were absolutely stunning - greens, oranges, reds, purples, yellows.. any color of nature you can possibly imagine. Such a gorgeous venue!

Sarah, Natalie, and Stacey were extremely attentive to all of my crazy questions throughout the process. They made planning this wedding (which I did on my own, I didn't have a coordinator) much easier and allowed me the freedom to do what I wanted with decorations, seating, etc. Barbara was our wedding day coordinator, who also worked with us at the rehearsal, and she was fantastic!! She was knowledgeable, professional, and knew exactly what she was doing - she made us feel super special and really adhered to our questions and needs. The rehearsal, ceremony, and reception were PERFECT, and we have the Sunken Gardens staff to thank for that!!

Sunken Gardens definitely delivered the whole package. :) It was an absolutely wonderful place for our daughter and our new son on their wedding day.
First, the garden was a beautiful back drop for the fairy tale wedding.
Second, The Sunken Garden staff were fantastic with our families as we transitioned into this new chapter of our lives. They were extremely professional and helpful to us from the start, throughout the planning process, and the wedding day. They created the magical atmosphere for the perfect wedding. They worked with the vendors to ensure the day was seamless which resulted in an awesome wedding day and created wonderful lasting memories. I would gladly recommend Sunken Gardens to others.

My wedding looked amazing but it isn't because of Sunken Gardens. I enjoyed using them for my cocktail hour and reception but I was a little disappointed. First off the garden room was extremely hot all night long, I had guests complaining along with myself. Second the sign they wrote for my guests to see was absolutely dreadful. Third the women helping weren't dressed in a manner appropriate for hosting a wedding. The venue was great for my reception just wish it would have been cooler.

The staff at Sunken Gardens is beyond professional, helpful and organized! From the very beginning, it was so easy to communicate with Sarah and her staff. They were very quick to respond to any question I had, no matter how small. Come rehearsal time, Barbara and Stephanie were so detail oriented that they kept me calm and sane. I knew everything would be perfect and it was. And the venue itself...you cannot find a more beautiful place to hold a romantic and intimate wedding. And having the gardens all to ourselves was so amazing and private!! Our guests were floored by the beauty of the Sunken Gardens.

I recently had my wedding here...and OMG! So gorgeous, perfect wedding. I have had so many compliments on how great the wedding was and how beautiful the gardens are. We had the entire park for a private event...so worth the money. They did a great job with set up and working with my vendors. They need more help with correspondence and at the rehearsal but that could have been because of my crazy wedding party (lots of kids) but otherwise not a single complaint. I would definitely recommend them. Great job to everyone at Sunken Gardens for making my wedding perfect!

We had our wedding ceremony at the Sunken Gardens. It was a beautiful day in the garden and that is what I try to focus on.....but I can't ignore what a let down it was that the Sunken Gardens messed up the most important part of our wedding... the ceremony. I would not recommend Sunken Gardens due to that. On the day of our wedding rehearsal we were told that someone would set up sound for us. They apparently did not do it correctly because during the ceremony there was no sound! We had our videographer sound synced up with it so then our wedding video ALSO had no sound because we were silly enough to depend on Sunken Gardens to do what they said they would do. This is the main reason why I would not recommend the gardens. There is another side point such as they called me while I was on my honeymoon to tell me they were going to charge me $100 for a chair in the ladies sitting room. They proceeded to say the flower girls must have had a pen and poked holes all in one of the chairs. The flower girls were 10 and 3 (who was obviously with her mother the whole time). I was the one who had sat on the chair for a few minutes before the ceremony. The only thing I could think of is my veil had crystals and must have scratched the chair. But if the chair is that fragile shouldn't you put a plastic cover on it to avoid it getting damaged so easily. Unless they want it to get damaged so they can nickel and dime you. Since I was on my honeymoon I was not going to waste my time arguing with them over $100 which is sure why they called when they did having no regard to send me an invoice in the mail so not to interrupt me on my honeymoon. I just thought the way it was handled was very inconsiderate. And I feel that they should make more effort to "scratch proof" their bridal "sitting room" because at the moment you can't sit down without fearing of damaging the furniture.... sitting down just may cost you $100.
