  • On the day of our tour it was raining off and on AND we got stuck in traffic and we were running late. They were so friendly and accommodating. The facilities themselves are beautiful. They answered every question we could think of while we were there and never took more than a few hours to respond to emailed questions after that. They have been fantastic so far!

  • We planned our wedding from out of town, with the help of our son. Jessica had a meeting with our son and drove him around the Gardens. Between the both of them, the wedding was arranged before we even made it to Norfolk to visit the Gardens. Jessica took us to the Baker Overlook, to confirm that was where we wanted to get married. Contract terms and payment and visiting the site was all extremely easy, due to Jessica’s experience. Jessica was extremely organized and covered all aspects of the ceremony, including seating, what would happen in the event of rain, and transportation of us and all guests to and from the Baker Overlook. She was happy to be a significant part of our day. We could not have chosen a better site to get married. We recommend Norfolk Botanical Gardens for anyone wishing to have a memorable wedding in a beautiful setting.

  • The Norfolk Botanical Gardens is such a beautiful place, and our wedding was absolutely breathtaking. The staff is so incredibly friendly--I have a ginormous email chain with them of me asking questions every other day, and they were incredibly sweet and fast in response every single time! I had so many compliments on how beautiful our ceremony and reception were, and really I hardly had any decoration at all. The beautiful grounds themselves needed no decoration, really--we just added some small decor to make it our own. Admittedly being restricted to work with some of their required vendors worried me in the beginning, but all of these vendors were so amazing and helped make our wedding day so smooth and memorable! We love being able to go back to the Gardens and remember our special day, I can't begin to recommend them enough!

  • We had a small wedding part of the "English Lavender" collection. All I can say Jasmine was amazing! I feel as Jasmine could have stepped on as MOH (we did not have attendants) she was just that comfortable to work with. We only had the pleasure of working with Jasmine, and I do not know all of the typical requests they get but she definitely went above and beyond... Fixing my dress, making sure I was happy and got what I wanted. The venue goes without saying was gorgeous!

  • Norfolk Botanical Gardens was the most perfect wedding venue we could have imagined. They responded quickly when we contacted them for a tour, and were able to see us that coming weekend. We were taken on a golf cart ride through the gardens to see the different ceremony spots available in the package we were interested in. After we booked, we were given a year’s membership to the gardens, which we definitely took advantage of! This place is beyond gorgeous! The weeks leading up to the event, the garden staff was so helpful in ironing out the final details and answering any questions I could think of. On the day of our wedding, we were provided a classroom each for the bride and groom to get ready in. These rooms were very spacious and had a mirror and clothes rack so we could finish getting ready. With rain in the forecast, we had to make a rain call by 4pm, and when we decided we still wanted to be outside, they made sure there were mats put down on the aisle so I wouldn’t have t...

  • We went with the elopement package because we had a small budget and a short guest list. We chose Bakers Outlook for the ceremony. Ashley and Lena were FANTASTIC! They were so helpful and kind even as we incountered a few hiccups. I would recommend Norfolk Botanical Gardens to anyone! They went out of their way to help us create the perfect day. I truly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

  • Liz was such a pleasure to work with and despite the misty rain, our wedding was GORGEOUS. We held our ceremony at the Butterfly garden gazebo, our cocktail hour at the Perennial fountain garden and our reception at the Baker Hall Terrace and it was all so beautiful. The staff took the extra step of making sure the ceremony site was not soggy for us to walk through (as best as they could) and took special care of my father who is mostly wheelchair bound, to ensure he did not struggle with getting where he needed to be. The staff worked well with the other vendors to determine if a last minute change was needed due to the weather, but it held out and our guests had an amazing time. I would definitely recommend booking early, especially if you want a fall wedding.

  • We had a great experience with the Botanical Gardens. From our first tour, until the end of the wedding night, they were very friendly, professional, responsive and helpful. We could not have imagined a more beautiful location to get married and the day was amazing! Liz, was perfect, from everything the day of, to golf carting us around to the first look, ceremony and couples portraits. This is a great place to get married!

  • My husband and I planned (for almost a year) a beach wedding with a tent lawn reception. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and 3 days before our wedding we had to find a new venue. Needless to say, I was SHOCKED that 3 days before the Botanical Gardens Rose Garden Hall was still available. Everything was absolutely stunning. The vendors, caterer, alcohol and rentals were easily transitioned to the site. A flexibility that every bride needs. The rain held off all morning, and we were able to get married outside in the gardens. But just after the first kiss during the ceremony, it really started coming down. The NBG staff quickly passed out umbrellas to all of the guests and once we were married, they swiftly scurried our guests into the trams to head back to the gazebo for cocktail hour. Everything about this wedding, from the change of location, to the timing of the rain, was just perfect. Liz Le, our staff coordinator went above and beyond to make sure all our needs were me...

  • I am a newly engaged future bride, and Botanical Gardens was one of my first choices to look at. I am still currently looking, but Botanical Gardens gave me a great tour with what I was interested in. I was helped and all my questions were answered. They were kind and patient and had all answers ready and prepared. Botanical Gardens is a beautiful places and I would gladly take this as one of my options.

  • My wife and I only looked at one venue in Norfolk, and we knew this was the spot for us. We liked that they had a range of packages and locations, so each wedding is a little different, and their pricing is exactly the same every day of the year. The 1-year membership that comes with each wedding package was a nice perk, as was their list of exclusive and preferred vendors that helped us narrow down local vendors. It was such a beautiful venue, and we had such an amazing time. Although they do have a few simple rules, the NBG is definitely willing to work with you. Lena was our venue coordinator and she was extremely efficient, helpful, and sweet. It was a wonderful place for a wonderful day. Thanks NBG!

  • The lady who toured us around was awesome. We had only an hour appointment, so it's expected that you know more about what you want before you start your tour around the park. We'll definitely be booking our venue here.
