  • Sunken Gardens was our dream venue. It does book up fast so if you want to have your wedding there try not to wait too long. We ended up having ours on a Sunday which was really nice and actually qualified us for a discount. Cocktail hour in the Oak Pavilion is dreamy with their strung lights and having the reception outside was pretty magical, too!

  • We were very happy with our choice to get married at Sunken Gardens. We had a morning ceremony underneath the live oak tree which was an amazing place to gather our family and backdrop for our ceremony. Everyone there was great to work with and we had no problems during the process at all. Its also great that everyone gets to wander around before/after because its built in entertainment!

  • We loved working with Sarah and Stacey for our Sunday morning brunch wedding at Sunken Gardens. The value was great, and the venue was beautiful. We got married outside in the Oak Pavilion, then our guests got to explore the gardens before heading to the Garden Room for our reception. Everything ran so smoothly and we got so many compliments on the venue.

  • Stacey and Barbara on the Sunken Gardens team are absolutely amazing! The venue speaks for itself in how gorgeous it is. We had our ceremony in the North Lawn, our cocktail hour was under the Oak Pavilion, and our reception was inside in the Garden Room. We were going for that "secret garden/fairytale garden" look-and-feel and that is exactly how it turned out. Once we signed with Sunken Gardens, we were able to visit the venue multiple times before our wedding day so we could truly plan and picture where things would go, how we would want things set-up, and all of those details. Stacey helped with all of the planning and she was beyond helpful. I had so many questions, just trying to ensure I had everything in place, and she was super responsive and so accommodating with everything! Barbara helped for the rehearsal and the day-of and she was so sweet and helpful, as well. They had a staff of six that helped the day-of and though I didn't get to meet them all individually they all help... Read more

  • My husband and I were recently married at the Gardens. The staff here is incredible! They were there to answer all of my questions and made me feel comfortable in my choice to wed here. I must also say, the day of coordinators were AWESOME! They made sure we knew what we were doing and truly ensured our day went according to plans. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone who is interested.

  • Sunken Gardens is the venue for the wedding of your dreams! The over 100 year old garden creates a magical atmosphere that your guests will absolutely love!! We had our ceremony on the north lawn, the cocktail reception under the 250 year old live oaks in the Oak Pavillion, and the dinner inside the spacious garden room. The staff at the gardens are wonderful to work with and will make your day easy and fun.

  • Sunken Gardens is such a great venue. Not only did the day of coordinator, Barbara and Stephanie, work well with the other vendors, but they helped us along the way. They made sure we had our ceremony outside even though it rained literally 3 minutes after the ceremony ended. haha. They were super understanding, patient and were there to support us every step of the way. Everything looked so beautiful and we were so happy how it all turned out! The pictures below are the outside portion,were we got married which was the north lawn, but the reception was indoors. The first picture is also the cocktail hour area but because of the rain our guests could only stay out for like 10 minutes, but still beautiful.

  • We loved our venue so much, I wouldn't change a thing about it. The women that work here were very kind, and answered our questions timely and professionally. We gave 4 stars for quality of service ONLY because the woman who helped us with the rehearsal seemed very confused. I had never met her before that day, so that was also slightly off-putting. Nonetheless, it didn't lessen our experience. We had a wedding coordinator who stepped in to make sure things went smoothly. If you go with SG, I would just make sure you hire a wedding coordinator to help - otherwise you may find yourself overwhelmed on your rehearsal/wedding day. :)

  • We had a vision to do an intimate garden ceremony for our Feb. 24 wedding and Sunken Gardens was the ideal venue! The lush flora and immaculate greens of the North Lawn were the perfect backdrop for our special day - and Stacey's help coordinating our rehearsal and day-of was wonderful! We didn't need any extra flowers or decor - Sunken Gardens natural beauty was amazing! On a gorgeous sunny day, we walked down a cobblestone aisle that wound around the full garden and then said "I do" under a canopy of exquisitely draped flowers -- it was beyond magical! We cannot wait to see our photos from that day - our photographer was able to capture so many amazing shots throughout the entire gardens :) We also had access to a bridal changing room and private banquet room for the groom, so that our entries were planned seamlessly. Stacey was also super responsive and helpful throughout the entire process -- even when we decided last minute that we wanted to bring a fan to hide behind the alter (i... Read more

  • The setting is beautiful. Everything was spot on. Our "day of" coordinator was Alan and he is wonderful! Sarah and Stacey are very informative and responsive. There are two things that cause the lower rating. One of the gentlemen who works on the grounds who helps with chair and table tear down activities was abrupt. I experienced his lack of tact at the end of the night during tear down of the reception. I later learned my daughter, the bride, also had an experience with him while photographs were being taken in the ceremony area ... he apparently was getting impatient with the amount of time they were taking. The second item is an issue with the bar contract. While I appreciate not wanting to finalize this until the very end given the bar expense and the need to have a true final count, in our case it was very last minute and received at a point where things had been talked and re-talked and came through on my last day at the office before I departed for St. Petersburg fo...

  • Our morning ceremony at the Sunken Gardens was breathtaking! (taken place at the Wedding Lawn) Our guests also enjoyed the gardens and it was a beautiful day for the event. Alan was very personable, well experienced, and thorough. He was very reassuring as he helped guide myself, my husband, and my bridal party during our rehearsals. The bridal room was nice but I can't see it accommodating 5 or more people comfortably. I am a little disappointed that the groom/groomsmen dressing room was basically the restrooms upstairs in the Garden Room. The biggest downfall of the venue is its parking. Many of our guests had to park elsewhere and walk from down the street. Unfortunately, the restaurants around the venue were busy and took up a lot of parking spaces. Other than that, the Sunken Gardens itself is beautiful and the shots you'll get for your photos will not disappoint! They also provide reception areas for either indoor/outdoor and morning/evening events. If you're looking for a garden... Read more

  • Loved having our wedding at the Sunken Gardens, and our guests loved it too. A couple things that stand out in particular - - Obviously the property is awesome. Many guests were very impressed with the property and of course it lightens the burden on decorating when the place itself is so beautiful - The planning/assistance exceeded our expectations. Having the staff there to lean on for logistics, timing, etc was HUGE - Very responsive and professional Gave a 4.5 on flexibility because they do only allow you to choose from a list of approved caterers (although its several dozen) and the alcohol must be provided them (although again they were very accommodating and picked up some special requests for us) but since we loved and had NO issues with caterer/alcohol it wasn't a concern for us :) Loved this place and would highly recommend stopping by!
