"Meticulous!! That was how Maria the owner of these beautiful gardens was described to me and I was soon to discover how true this comment was. As a couple who had long awaited our big day, we gave Maria our dreams and plans and she made them into a reality. Maria was beyond helpful and supportive during the planning process and as we got closer to our big day we were sure we were in safe hands and that our day would be exactly what we wished it would be, making the whole process a lot easier. Maria and Terry, thank you for making our day so magical, your gardens are amazing and the love and work you put into them shines through.
I can not recommend this venue enough.”
