The Garden House is a beautiful place for a wedding reception and ceremony. There are multiple options on the property depending on what type of ceremony you want. The best part was the built in rain contingency plan - which we took advantage of! We moved the ceremony the night before from The Pines Theater to the large tent outside the Garden House due to weather but it ended up being the best decision we made, the tent is beautiful and the courtyard surrounding was nicely landscaped. I cannot say enough great things about the staff from the first meeting through the end of the reception - Jil knows this place in and out and was very easy to work with. During the ceremony and reception, Jil and Beth kept us on schedule and were on hand getting the wedding party drinks and making sure everyone was comfortable. Every time I turned around they would be clearing tables or helping guests - it meant a lot to us and felt like they cared about making our wedding a success! A couple things to note: the bridal suite is a little small and does not have a bathroom. We had 15 round tables (with 8-10 ppl each) and a sweetheart table - the room felt full but not crowded and people were still able to move around. The initial floorplan included 19 tables for 175 ppl, I'm not sure how this would be possible without everyone being on top of each other so I feel it was the perfect space for our quantity of guests.

We used The Garden House at Look Park for our reception venue, after a church ceremony in Northampton. We selected this venue for our November wedding because of the beautiful exposed beams, huge fireplace, and reasonable price. However, their staff is what makes this venue truly special. Jilian was incredibly helpful and responsive as we planned our event; Jessica was wonderful the day-of making sure our reception went smoothly; and the bar tender was excellent as well. Plus, our pictures around the park were perfect. I highly recommend this venue!

Our wedding at the Garden House was a truly magical experience. The ceremony was in the woods at the back of the property, a true wedding in the woods fantasy. The rest of the property was large and beautiful and provided the perfect place for everything wedding related from photos and parking to the ceremony itself, I was incredibly impressed with the service as well.

Because of our Christian faith, my wife and I opted to have an alcohol free wedding where no alcohol would be served at any point. The staff at the Garden house were incredibly attentive to our desires and gave us the best possible wedding with all of our desires met.

It was an absolute pleasure having our wedding here and would suggest it to anyone considering it as an option.

Cheers and best of luck to all reading this!

The venue is very organized. Clean. The staff is courteous and very accommodating.
Our wedding was in the courtyard, we had the reception in Garden House. This made it simple for our out of town guests not familiar with the area; less driving from a church to the reception was a good thing for these guests.
The room on its own is beautiful and provided a great back drop to our evening wedding. Our cake vendor, caterer and flower person had an easy time getting in and setting up. Because there was no event prior to our evening wedding that day we were allowed to bring in stuff early. Our DJ was very happy because this made his set up much easier. Do not hesitate to ask if there is an event prior to your wedding, you may find it helpful to get things done early if there is a chance to do so. Again, this was only because there was NO event prior to ours. We were also allowed to go anywhere in the park with our photographer, as long as there was no event going on in other areas.
Communication was easy. We planned our wedding long distance. The response time to emails was fast. Contact person in the office at the Garden House asked that we have a conference call to go over everything detail by detail; this was very professional of them considering we were long distance it worked out well.

We absolutely loved the Garden House for our venue! Everyone was so helpful leading up to the day and on the day itself. We loved the different look to the room, especially the wooden beams for the ceiling. We would definitely recommend this venue!

My wedding at Look Park was absolutely beautiful - I couldn't have asked for a better setting. We had our ceremony outdoors at the Pines Theater, and countless wedding guests told me how unbelievably gorgeous the space was. The Garden House is great as well - with lots of parking and clean, nice facilities as well. I really couldn't be happier with my experience.

Loved this venue! A gorgeous 1930s room with a huge fireplace and large dance floor.
We had 147 people, and it felt tight. Not sure how another 23 people would fit in!

We worked with Jill to finalize all the plans and beverage service. She isn't incredibly responsive, but I think she also works part time. It would have been nice to have someone there the evening of the wedding who had gone through everything with us, but there were no issues, so it didn't matter.

Big Props to the grounds people, who helped set up chairs last minute at the Pines Theater, so we could have our ceremony outside. It was raining in the morning, then not, then rain, then there was a small window so we did it outside! Then it started to pour again!

We actually booked the venue before I saw it since we planned the wedding in less than 3 months. I was very relieved when I saw what a lovely space it is. The fireplace gave the room a great atmosphere particularly on a fall day. The service was great. They were really on top of all the little details, and because we got married on a Monday, Columbus day, we got a great deal.
