Sarah and team were very responsive and quick. The location could not be any better and even though the rain put a damper on having cocktail hour outside in the Oak Garden, the accommodated us inside the location and still made it look beautiful. The Garden Room for the reception was absolutely stunning with the large windows and wood floors. I love the fact that as simple as it looks, it still makes it feel elegant. All our guests loved the location!

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!!

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.

My husband and I fell in love with Sunken Gardens the moment we arrived. Sunken Gardens was the first venue of many on our list. While touring the gardens, we both looked at each other and knew this would be the perfect place. We had a beautiful ceremony on the Wedding Lawn, followed by a cocktail hour under the Oak Pavilion, and finally our reception in the Garden Room. The entire day was magical! The staff were so friendly and accommodating all throughout the planning process. Sunken Gardens is definitely a little "gem" in the heart of St. Petersburg. We couldn't have picked a better place to spend our special day!

We were just married at the end of October and the weather was PERFECT! Our ceremony, cocktail reception and reception were all outdoors. What a beautiful setting.. all the flowers were in bloom! Everything looked beautiful. We also used the indoor classroom to make a kid’s party room.. We had food and games in there for them and they had a blast! It was great to have the extra space for the adults in the courtyard. The staff was wonderful in coordinating and guiding us through everything.. and I must give a very special and warm THANK YOU to Natalie as she is the one that we had our initial meeting with and was more than helpful throughout our months leading up to the wedding and answered all of my questions and was a tremendous support. It was truly a magical spot to have our wedding!
