Dream wedding at the Landmark!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Reviewed on 5/21/2014 Indira J
I am so grateful I got to do my wedding at Landmark. Everything came out beautiful. It included everything I wanted... the gardens, the hall, a groom and bride suite... everything is just amazing. Even the bathrooms are gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!! My fiance and I looked and searched everywhere for a venue, but once we visited the Landmark we knew the search was over. Jamie was a pleasure to work with from the very beginning. She was always so nice and answered all my questions. She made the whole experience very easy and calmed all my stress and fears. I would stress out over a small detail but once I'd talk to her all the stress was gone. She let me know that it wasn't a big problem, not in a way that she didn't care, but in a way that it was all under control because she did care and wanted us to have the best experience. The Landmark has everything a bride could ever dream of. They even include tables and chairs and tablecloths! The beauty of the Landmark really made me feel like a queen on my wedding day. I couldn't believe I was wedding married in such an amazing venue. I always thought it'd be too expensive for us to afford. But we were surprised of how affordable it was. Please visit the Landmark, once you are there I am sure you will not want your wedding anywhere else!
GREAT VENUE WITH GREAT STAFFReviewed on 9/30/2012 Anais G
Jamie and Erica and the rest of the team at the Landmark are awesome. Ms. jaime was a doll and such an easy person to work with. Jaime and her team have such a drive in them to make every wedding the best wedding regardless of the number of guest or the amount of money spent they just do what they do best to make it the best wedding ever. Ms Jaime is always available and really helped me when ever a question would pop in my head instead of writing it down and asking later I would just call her and get an answer right away. I would recommend this venue to any bride or even any one looking to do sweet sixteens or any other fairy tale like event because it really looks beautiful inside and out
Beautiful building. Horrible management. The Hall and Gardens lacked professionalism and common sense courtesy. The Hall and Gardens coordinator ruined the event for me, as the host for the wedding celebration. If you want details from the bride, groom, mother or father of the bride, just email me at [email protected] All the best for your event.
Amazing nightReviewed on 12/18/2014 Lauren P
We loved this venue! It made our reception so memorable!
Gorgeous Venue, Friendly StaffReviewed on 11/27/2012 Jennifer D
When looking for a Ceremony and Reception venue we had three top criteria that were "musts" - ability to accommodate 200+ people, indoors, affordable. The Landmark was one of the VERY few venues who met these criteria. It is also a breathtaking venue both indoors (in the Ballroom and throughout) and outdoors (in the Gardens). Jamie and the Landmark staff are very professional and a pleasure to work with. They were a large contributor to the success of our big day and we are very grateful for all of their efforts and hard work. They allowed our dreams for a fairytale wedding to come to fruition and I would certainly recommend them to any brides-to-be looking for a perfect venue.
FANTASTICReviewed on 6/04/2012 Tori L
My wedding was a dream! Its a beautiful garden with an elegant hall right next to each other. The owner is quick to get back to you with answers to your questions. The space is intimate and you feel royal.
Landmark Rocks!Reviewed on 5/16/2012 Sarah B
We got married in the beautiful gardens at Landmark on April 28, 2012 then held our reception in their hall. Everything about the Landmark is absolutely beautiful. We picked the Landmark because we wanted to be able to bring in our own alcohol and pick our own caterer. Your price is dependent upon your rental time. Everyone on the staff is willing to help you in any way, and Jamie is just wonderful. Hire Kathy Moore as your director and you won't have to worry about a thing on your wedding day.

I am excited to meet you and work with you on creating a special wedding day here at the Landmark! My favorite part of working with brides and grooms is their excitement about the details they dream up as we plan and execute a flawless event. I help my brides stay organized and feel confident that their wedding will be all that they have imagined!
