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.

The staff that wotk the wedding are very friendly and do a great job;however, some of the other staff dont seem to appreciate the fact that though they may plan/book many weddings this is your wedding and is exciting and personal for you. They approach you with a cold business like behavior but overall do a good job.
