We had our wedding at Lantern Court, the mansion that is part of Holden. We are so happy that we did! Great prices, extremely flexible and an extremely nice staff. We had such a great experience working with them. And it is a great place, it's beautiful, someone secluded and intimate and an interesting place for guests to explore. The set up is fantastic, I definitely suggest renting the whole property so guest can explore freely. The volunteers make jam in the kitchen there to sell in the gift shop in the main property - we decided to purchase them for favors. Our guests loved them, and they come in a pretty jar. I am so happy we went with this venue. Highly recommend!!!

My daughter was married at Lantern Court at Holden Aboretum. The venue holds about 80 people. It is a beautiful setting with an amazing event planner. Everyone worked really hard to make the event successful.

I cannot say enough about Carri-an and her staff at the Holden Arboretum. We had our reception in the Butterfly Garden/Visitors Center, and she was terrific to work with from the beginning. Carri-an genuinely enjoys planning and assisting in weddings, and it shows in the quality of her work and service.

Compared to other venues, the Holden is not only the most beautiful, but also a great value. I'd highly recommend it, and wish I still lived nearby to visit regularly!

Carri-an was extremely helpful in booking our time for our wedding photos. She met with my husband and I and was very professional, gave us the different gardens that were available and answered all of our questions. When the day of our wedding came and we went to take some photos, the flowers were in full bloom and everything was just as I pictured it (we met with her in October).

We had a great experience with Holden. Our wedding was held behind the visitor center, and the garden was beautiful. Reception inside was fantastic as well. The event coordinator was replaced while we were planning our wedding, and OH MY GOSH what a wonderful difference it made! The previous coordinator took way too long to respond to calls and emails. The current coordinator is awesome - she is on top of things and able to get back to the families quickly with any question at all. The venue was beautiful, the service was great - I'm very glad we chose Holden!

Our ceremony and reception were at Lantern Court/Holden Arboretum and I can't imagine having our wedding anywhere else. Gorgeous venue, wonderful personnel. You do have to rent everything but if you want your day to be your own - this is the way to go!

This venue is absolutely beautiful and magical. They were very easy to work with. If you join as a member for $40, you get 20 percent off of the venue rental so we saved $200. I thought the value was good for the cost. The staff was friendly and accommodating. At times, it may take the event coordinator a few days to return your call or e-mails as they have many events taking place. If you can be patient, I assure you she will get back to you and all details will be handled.

I loved the venue more than words can say. We had everything at Lantern Court that is within the Arboretum, it's tucked away from everything as it was the summer home of the Corning family (wealthy banker from before the 1950's). The venue itself is gorgeous, I felt like a princess!! The staff were all very helpful and the planning process was pretty seamless. the only issue we had was that the rental was a set number of hours and in order to use the onsite bridal salon I had already booked, we had to move up the time frame and therefore had to leave by 9pm, which was a little earlier than I would have liked. Also, the coordinator that we had for the wedding day and rehearsal seemed a bit frazzled and even came a few minutes late on the wedding day. I believe she was a replacement for a previous coordinator that we had spoken with but had since moved to a different position. Other than that everything went perfect!

They were so helpful and so flexible. I had an outdoor reception under a tent, but it was raining so they provided umbrellas and golf carts to shuttle guests from their cars. I only had to book it so far in advance to make sure their benefit didn't fall on the same weekend as my wedding (it's always in July). Even with the rain it was beautiful site. It was the perfect backdrop for our photos!

Beautiful location and setting. The only reason I didn't rate service and professionalism higher was due to the wedding coordinator. I felt she was rude. But overall a great venue!
