My husband and I were married at the Natural Gardens in June of 2016, and we could not have been happier with the entire experience. From our first visit to the venue to the day after our wedding, Steve and Cathy ensured we were completely at ease. The landscape is incredibly... Read More serene with beautiful gardens, hops orchard, ponds and pathways. Bordered by lush ferns and forests, the venue feels like a magical oasis. During the planning process Steve met our numerous questions with prompt and thoughtful responses. He and Cathy seemed personally invested in our comfort, and that mentality extended to their entire staff. All friendly, down-to-earth professionals, they worked seamlessly with our array of vendors, and collaborated to make the event run smoothly and assist our guests when needed. Whether it was something as small as an unsolicited cool glass of water at the right time, or as big as stepping in to help receive rentals when our wedding coordinator failed to show up, the entire Natural Gardens staff played a key role in the success of our wedding weekend. Their attention to detail also blew us away. From clearing low-hanging branches around our ceremony site, to purchasing an A/C unit for the cottage to keep us comfortable, to furnishing lanterns along the entrance with locally made candles, to building us a beautiful campfire Steve, Cathy and the entire staff couldn’t have been more thoughtful. The size of the Natural Gardens allowed us to utilize completely unique sites for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We held our ceremony toward the back of the property where the wedding party was hidden from guests by large evergreens. Steve provided a pop-up tent to help keep us cool, and once guests arrived, the NG crew used golf carts to transport those who had difficulty walking to the site. The cocktail hour was held outside toward the front of the property, and the guests took in the scenery while relaxing in Steve and Cathy’s newly built Adirondack chairs. There were no shortage of gorgeous photo opportunities, and our guests mingled freely throughout the property. For the reception, we moved to the pavilion and had a large bar and photo booth just inside the front entrance, a full buffet on the far end, plus a 10 piece band on the broad side of the barn. 160 guests fit comfortably inside leaving the dance floor clear for guests. I should note that with a full catering kitchen running out behind the barn with refrigerators, freezers, ovens etc. on top of the band, the generator Steve has was more than sufficient. The band went until 12am but could have played later as the venue is doesn't have any close neighbors. At the end of the evening we exited the barn under cover of stars and sparklers to see mist rising from the ponds and hear the music of bullfrogs. As we walked down to the campfire, we felt an overwhelming sense of appreciation for Steve and Cathy who cultivated this amazing property. My husband and I couldn't be more grateful for the perfection The Natural Gardens helped us to achieve on our wedding day. Steve and Cathy’s warmth and positive attitude, along with their ability to anticipate our every need made for a wonderful, unforgettable experience for us and all of our guests. We look forward to visiting The NG for years to come, both to remember our wedding day, and spend time with Steve and Cathy, who we now consider part of our extended family. - Dara & Joel Freimark (Married June, 2016)
