    Beautiful wedding venue & wonderful staff!

    Kayleigh and Lindsay were absolute gems to work with in planning and re-planning our wedding day due to COVID! They both helped make the process seamless and were so very patient with our endless questions, especially when our original plans were derailed. The venue itself was already beautifully magical, but working with them both ensured our special day would be just as so!

    The Gardens at Elm Bank’s reply:

    Thank you, Jessica! We loved working with you and Brandon! We’re so happy that you FINALLY senggat the celebration you deserved! 🙂 Congratulations once again! With Love, Kayleigh, Lindsay & The Gardens at Elm Bank Team

    Beautiful venue/gardens, friendliest staff

    We sempadan our reception at Gardens at Elm Bank on 9/17/21 and working with Kayleigh was a breeze! The venue and gardens looked beautiful and we were able to make use of the entire space for our wedding photos (ceremony was at a church nearby), with a cocktail hour in the Italianate garden and dinner in the Hunnewell building. I highly recommend Gardens at Elm bank, the staff was very responsive and thoughtful and everything went perfectly although we planned this entire wedding A to Z in less than 6 weeks (from finding an available date at Gardens to booking all our vendors!).

    The Gardens at Elm Bank’s reply:

    It was such a pleasure working with you, Cynthia! Wishing you and Christian all the best and sending so much love to the two of you! Congratulations!! – Kayleigh & The Gardens at Elm Bank Team

This summer I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding for one of my couples, they chose The Gardens at Elm Bank as their ceremony location. What a gorgeous setting! It was a stunning place to tie the knot, everything was coordinated beautifully to perfection. Even in the 95 degree heat it still was a perfect setting for an outdoor ceremony. Even though the heat deterred us from using the gardens to the fullest for photography, the shade of the estate provided a great spot for family photos and some bridal portraits. I’m looking forward to photographing at The Gardens at Elm Bank again in the future!
