  • Lena and her team were honestly the best to work with. Planning a wedding during covid had its challenges. Everything from the beginning of the planning process all the way to our wedding day was smooth. We looked at a few venues and Lena was the only one who really took the time to answer our questions and helped us narrow down what we needed versus what we wanted. It was super convenient to have a location where we could have both the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. The location is absolutely beautiful and made for wonderful photos. My husband and I had to do most of the planning and financing of the wedding and Lena really helped in every way possible to make sure our wedding vision came true within our budget. I would 100 percent recommend this venue to anyone and their families. This was such a positive experience. I’m so grateful for everything for this team!

  • The Burroughs Home and garden is the most beautiful place for any event! The river views are gorgeous. GEM, the catering company, is a joy to work with and makes planning easy. We had our wedding here and it was absolutely perfect!

  • We are so happy with the way our wedding at the Burroughs Home turned out. It is an absolutely beautiful home, with such a peaceful outdoor space too. The location downtown was perfect for us, with convenient parking offered. We booked the house and grounds, which I really recommend because getting ready in the house was such a cool experience for my bridesmaids and me. We were worried it might rain on our day, so it was such a relief to have flexibility with outdoor spots and covered options. The large pavilion was sooo big and such a perfect option for these times when people are more comfortable gathering in open-air spaces. We were also always impressed with how friendly and helpful Lena was. We definitely recommend the Burroughs Home for all kinds of events!

  • Beautiful place! The grounds are gorgeous and the inside of the home is very beautiful and classy. What an outstanding location to get married at. You can get ready in the home. Then you can have your ceremony at several areas in the grounds. Then have your reception in the outdoor building. Hands down the best location for a wedding. Ask for Lena she will take care of everything you will possibly need.

    You made it so easy to take care of you and your beautiful family! I am so happy that through all of the cancellations you experienced with other venues that you ended with us!!

  • When we started this wedding planning process we had a few venues in mind. We stopped at The Burroughs Home first and we didnt look any further! After meeting with Christine and her staff and viewing this unbelievably beautiful home we were stunned and fell in love! The detail and care that Christine takes in organizing your wedding and bringing it to life with this beautiful home are unmatched! The home is gorgeous and has the most beautiful, photogenic scenery i have ever seen. We were blown away by every elegant detail this home provides. Christine is a professional, she knows what she is doing and guides you through every little detail with ease. The home is simply breathtaking and we absolutely love being a Burroughs bride and groom. Thank you Christine and staff, you made our dream come true!!

  • Even through changing of event coordinators, the communication never failed. Gina was always there to guide and answer any of the questions I had. There is a suggestion for any vendor you may need. I can’t express enough words how breath taking this venue is. The historical home, the the oak trees on the property, to the river bank views, to the pavilion. Everything is so beautiful and there are multiple places to choose from for a backdrop for your ceremony. My wedding was absolutely perfect and I could not have picked a better venue for it. Thank you for everything Burroughs Home & Gardens.

  • I cannot say enough good things about the Burroughs Home. Not only is it a beautiful venue, but the coordinators who work there are very professional and very efficient. All of the preferred vendors were professional as well and were great with communication. But, we really couldn't get over how beautiful the venue was and how easy everything was for us on the day of the event. Getting married here was the best decision we made!

  • The Burroughs home is such a beautiful venue with the most amazing view!!! There’s nothing better than being on the water but still being surrounded by so many trees! Cindy (director of special events) was so quick to reply with all of my questions and very flexible with us. She was wonderful to work with and helped tremendously with the flow of our special day!

  • Burroughs Home & Garden was a wonderful location for our outdoor wedding. The home and grounds have countless options for great backdrops and atmosphere. We also loved being able to have everything at one location allowing our guests to flow from the ceremony, over to the cocktail hour and into the pavilion for the reception. We highly recommend this venue for your wedding.

    We are so happy you loved the location. We are doing everything we can to make guests feel as safe as possible. Please be sure to send pictures!!

  • The venue is beautiful. You have the historical beauty of the home, and the elegant garden feel in the back of the property by the river. The pavilion was perfect for our 125 guest wedding. We had plenty of room for the tables and most importantly the dance floor! We got so many amazing pictures, and I especially love the group photo they do in the front of the home. The only thing I was disappointed with was I originally thought we had the house until 10:30pm with the rest of the venue. They informed me the day of the wedding that we had to have our things out of the house by 6pm so it could be locked, and then we were being locked out immediately following the ceremony which ended at 5pm. It was a little frustrating when we wanted to get photos and video inside the home. I wasn’t able to get photos by their beautiful stair case because we were being kicked out. So, just make sure these times are clear with the staff before the wedding day comes. I still highly recommend the venue... Read more

    Kelsey we are so sorry for any confusion on the day of your wedding. The Burroughs Home is a Historic museum and it is locked once the ceremony begins to protect the home from people coming inside off of the street as well as the protection of personal items of the bridal party left in the home from theft. The home is only closed after the ceremony to the guest again for these same reasons but the Bridal party is always welcomed to come back in and take pictures if the wedding planner communicates that needs to happen. We ask that the wedding planner choose then chooses the best time to move the personal items of the wedding party from inside the Home that is most convenient so that the wedding party has access to all of their personal belongings because the house is locked for protection for the rest of the evening. Again,we are so sorry if there was miscommunication and that was your experience, but we are so happy to hear you loved the grounds and had a beautiful wedding and thank you for the review!

  • Burroughs Home was a beautiful place to have our wedding- the venue is stunning and Cindy, the events coordinator, could not be more lovely and accommodating. A day after a tropical storm we had to shift our ceremony plans from the lawn to the side porch, and it went extremely seamlessly. Additionally, they are flexible with end-times, which was great for us, since other homes we looked at were far more restrictive. The only (very minor) complaint would be the approved vendor list, which limited us to very few caterers. Beyond this, we were thrilled with the venue and the team, and would highly recommend!
