The venue is beautiful. The service on the other hand.not so good. Months before the wedding the bride requested the arch be moved under the gazebo so the backdrop was the building not the water. This allowed the bride, groom, wedding party, and family to stand in the shade for the ceremony. Some of the people in that list have poor eyesight and the sun would affect there line of vision. The place failed to have the arch set up the day of the rehearsal and had to move it the day of the wedding. The ceremony was beautiful. I do not know anything about the officiant the place provides since the bride and groom had someone else officiate the wedding. The reception service was bad. Immediately after the food was served the cake was already laid out on the table for people to take. Being the MoH I got up and got my whole table and the head table a piece of cake. The head table was the sweetheart table and say just the bride and groom. When I sat back down someone took my food. My food wasnt even out for 10 minutes. I had two bites of my food and set my silverware back on the table symbolizing that I was not finished eating. When I asked someone about it they just said they didnt have any more and walked away. I later found out that night that they offered a second plate of food to the brother of the groom. Another issue I had was that servers kept taking our drinks. It was not only me but everyone there. I would set my drink down and turn away to talk to someone and reach for my drink that was no longer there. I had ordered maybe 12 drinks and drank only 2 full glasses combined through the whole night. I started to put my glass on the head table and the servers still took the drinks. The servers even cleared the head table before the bride and groom could eat their cake. The bride and groom got up to go table to table and the servers cleared their table. Around 45 minutes (10:45pm) left of the reception the centerpieces were cleared off including the add-ons that we brought. We never saw them again.A bridesmaid and myself was approached to clean out the bridal suite at this time. I refused to clean it out since we are supposed to have it the full duration of the reception. When the last song ended the chairs started to be stacked when there was still people in the room and we felt like we were rushed out. The party favors for the guests were pulled off the table and tossed out as well. The reception ended at 11:30 pm. When I went up to the bridal suite to clean it out the cleaning crew was just walking in there. I felt rushed to clean everything since they stood there watching us and waiting for us to leave. When I went out to the car to put things in my car the lights in the parking lot was shut off it was around 11:45. The bride and groom waited for the shuttle bus service they had paid for to run to the hotels for the night never came and got them. A worker had to use the companies van to shuttling them over to the hotel.
Overall the wedding and venue was beautiful but the staff was rude and pushy. From the two bites of food and the piece of cake I had the food was good. I wish I had more of it and wasnt taken away. I looked into having my own wedding here and got prices before the wedding. I can say I came home and tossed the information. I will not have my wedding at this place and do not recommend this place to others.

DO NOT RECOMMEND!

I had my sisters baby shower there three weeks ago. For such a small event, I had never seen so many people working so hard. I was told that this place had a bad reputation, but now I can see that they were just trying to hide it from me. Everything was outstanding for my sister and all of our family and friends. The owner or manager (I believe her name was Deb) gave the entire party free appetizers and offered everyone complimentary mimosas. My daughter was having a fit during the party so Deb actually took her hand and walked her around the gardens with a cup of ice cream just so we could carry on with the shower. I must say that I was impressed beyond belief. I hope that I get another chance to go back, because with food and service like that, and the price that we got, nothing is better.

I just got married there last weekend, and my new wife and I had the best time. Everything was perfect. We had our reception in the garden, and the pictures in front of the huge fountain look amazing. My family couldn't stop raving about the food and how great everything was. The bartenders are out of this world and can mix a mean drink. Deb, the owner, made sure everything went down perfectly. She was with us every step of the way and I could not thank her enough. Everything was much better than we had expected. Thank you Jennifer's Garden for making our day the best day of our lives.

Absolutely love this place. I have been here for four or five separate weddings and each time it seems to just get better and better. The owner Deb is one of the nicest people to work with and she helped me plan both of my daughter's weddings. I agree with the other reviews about how beautiful this place is, and it really is a hidden jewel that not many people know about. The way I break it down.
Food: A+
Drinks: A+
Service/ Cleanliness: A+
Overall time at Jennifer's Garden: A++

I cant wait for another wedding to go back and enjoy another great night.

THIS PLACE IS GORGEOUS! This is the closest thing that comes to a castle in North America. The reception was beautiful and the owner (Deb) went above and beyond for my daughter. When the night was over, Deb personally came over and gave us a hug and was still making sure that everything went smoothly. Loved my experience and whoever says otherwise must have this place confused with somewhere else.

We selected Jennifer's Garden for our daughter's wedding and reception and were completely satisfied. The staff was very helpful in making plans. Deb, the owner, may seem imposing to some, but she recognizes that someone needs to pay attention to details and she wants to relieve the bridal party from those responsibilities and enjoy their day. We were very specific in sharing what was important to us and Deb made sure that those things happened.
The venue is beautiful. We were able to set up place cards and the gift table the day before the wedding which was very helpful. The food - from appetizers to cake - was absolutely wonderful; guests raved about it for months afterward. They accommodated individual requests, even making sure that the bride got a glass of milk with her dinner.
We couldn't have been more pleased with the quality of service we received.

Jennifer's Garden and its staff did everything they could to make me and my wife's day special. From planning out the menu to the very last guest left I felt like I was treated not as a "guest" or "client," but as a part of their family. The service was top notch and the food was above and beyond. Our reception in the garden was a dream come true for my wife, everything was perfect for our day. I have told everyone I know that this place is great and the owner Deb was more than welcoming. It was a night to remember for sure. I have read a previous review about how awful their night was, we obviously did not have the same experience. This place is beautiful and everything about our night was special. It was definatley the perfect first step that my wife and I made to begin our lives together! 5 Stars, and 2 thumbs way up!

My fiance and I are getting married here in June of this year - and Deb and Anne (the event coordinators) have been nothing but polite, professional, and extremely helpful. We planned our wedding in a hurry (we didn't even look at Jennifer's until mid-February of this year), and they have done everything possible to make it a smooth and easy experience for us.

The owner is very rude. She hung up on my photographer/videographer. I ended up having to change my wedding date because I didn't want to give this place any more of my money. I was treated miserably.
