  • Beautiful Gardens

    The Gardens are so beautiful! It was the perfect setting for a wonderful day! There were so many unique and special places for our guests to spend their time: playing lawn games, gathering under the hand-carved structures, walking through the forest by the grape vines. And at night, the whole place twinkled with beautiful exterior lighting. The staff was great and we had a fabulous time. It was lovely.

    As soon as we toured the Gardens of Castle Rock, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. The grounds are gorgeous, extensive, and you get them all to yourself all day! The bridal suit is huge and perfect for photos as well as comfy for hanging out. Kris and Berit and Glenn and the whole staff were incredibly easy to work with and so helpful and responsive. They also provide a really useful blog and flickr account full of photo ideas. Everything is so customizable; our wedding was so personal. Even when the weather didn't cooperate and it stormed after the ceremony, everyone pivoted to the tent and the sides went up in a blink of an eye! I didn't have to lift a finger all day and everything was perfect. More beautiful photo locations than we could use all day and such a smooth experience. I can't recommend them enough.

    Choosing the Gardens of Castle Rock for our venue was one of the best decisions we made during the planning process; Kris and Heidi were very communicative and accommodating to requests and questions throughout the whole process; from our first tour to the wedding day itself. We had really been looking for a location that merged my style and my husband's and the variety of ceremony locations and natural picturesque locations was a major plus. we also wanted flexibility in who we brought in for the rest of our vendors - not only were we not restricted in our choice in caterer/florists/decor etc but the Gardens also provided a list of tried and tested vendors that knew the location. We felt fully supported during our vendor journey without feeling pressured to pick from a restricted list. We did end up using many vendors from the recommended list because they matched our style and our price point. While we did have a full-service planner to help us during our planning process I would still highly recommend the Gardens to anyone whos planning their wedding on their own. I was also the first wedding they hosted for 2023; during the 2022 winter storm the lathe house had decided it needed a break a took a tumble - the team alerted us right away as we wanted that for our ceremony and in no time they had the lathe house fixed and ready for us to use on our day. They also helped us navigate and plan for potential rain, which thankfully we didn't have to use, but it was such a comfort to know that rain or shine my wedding was going to go off without a hitch. I can't thank the Gardens of Castle Rock enough for ensuring my perfect day and I wholeheartedly recommend them! As a bonus, we had a few opportunities to speak with the owner, Glenn, and we'll be purchasing a wood slab my Husband will turn into a coffee table so we can commemorate the day - that way we'll always have a little piece of the Garden's with us.

  • The Fairytale Garden Wedding of My Dreams

    Kris and Glen were absolutely amazing to work with! I originally planned a winter wedding, but due to the pandemic we canceled the wedding and rebooked at the Gardens of Castle Rock so we could move up the wedding date and do everything outdoors. I had 2 months to plan an entire wedding. To say I was stressed and overwhelmed would be an understatement. I called and emailed Kris an absurd amount of times DAILY asking questions, voicing concerns with how to handle a wedding during a pandemic, and asking for vendor recommendations. My calls and emails were met with nothing but kindness, patience, and compassion. A level of customer service I didn't even know existed anymore. My calls were 99% time answered immediately by Kris and if I did leave a voicemail my call was returned within 2 hours. All my emails were answered within hours. I will for ever be grateful for all the help and kindness I received during my wedding planning from the team at The Gardens of Castle Rock. The day of the wedding everything looked amazing and was set up exactly as discussed. You MUST tour this venue in person. The pictures online do not do it justice! If you are even the tiniest bit interest schedule a tour! The day of the wedding all the guests could talk about was how amazing the venue was and were still hearing about it weeks after. The venue is gorgeous during the day but it's especially magical once it gets dark and the whole venue including the parking lot is lit up with garden lights. There is absolutely nothing I would change about this venue.
