This space was every bit as beautiful as this image. I was blown away as soon as I stepped into the garden by how stunning every detail was. Melissa had set their beautiful wooden banquet tables with wine glasses and beautiful linens. Nothing else was needed to make this space feel both beautiful and inviting.

Everything was fantastic! Mel is amazingly organized and experienced in hosting at this incredible space. We were able to throw my wife's surprise birthday here with ease :) Highly recommended!
Allie R. booked a going away party for 30 people
Overall we had a lovely night at our event, however we were a bit frustrated with certain elements of the experience. PROS: -Beautiful, unique space with lots of plants -AWESOME service from the bartender, she was very personable and attentive throughout our event -Able to use outside catering -Blocked off part of the store for our event which was really nice -Whitney of @sugarandbite was so lovely, and made the coolest cake pops for dessert! CONS: -Event coordinator didn't show up to our first meeting (and didn't call/text to say she couldn't make it) -On the day of our event, we were told our event would not be private even though we had paid for private space and gone over the details with the coordinator beforehand. Be sure to confirm in writing exactly what you are booking and whether the space will be private or if shoppers will be able to come in. -Event coordinator was unavailable for periods of time during the event which was challenging when we needed her assistance. -Though beautiful, the dried flower arrangements attracted a lot of flies. Not anyone's fault, but something to be aware of if you're booking an event in this space. We had a great night, but were a bit underwhelmed by the organization of the event. Also, we felt the venue was very expensive for what is included in the booking so just be sure to clarify ahead of time.

This space worked really well for my event. There are a lot of nice little details that give the space some character, and the layout has been carefully considered, so things flow really easily. Everything was clean and in place when I arrived on the day of the event, so the set up was quick and painless. Melissa checked in throughout the night and was very helpful with re-stocking and clean up. I absolutely recommend this space if you're looking to host a casual event for 30-40 people.
Kyle A. booked an event for 60 people
This venue was absolutely beautiful! I had my surprise proposal here and it went beyond my expectations. I had about 60 guests and they all fit comfortably. Melissa is a wonderful host who listened to everything I wanted. She allowed me to use my band (with no amplification) and even participated in surprising my now fiance. I was able to bring my own food and alcohol in and I feel like everything went according to plan. If you're planning on using this place as a reception for a wedding, or anything romantic event, you've picked the right place. Melissa will take care of you. Thank you again!
Tymber V. booked an event for 35 people
I booked this space for a small “wedding”/ anniversary party. It was so beautiful and Melissa and her team made the night flow without a hitch! The in-house catering was DELICIOUS, bar tender was amazing and the space was incredible. Only things to note- this rental is only for part of the space, to rent the whole outside area is a separate fee. We didn’t know this until after we booked the venue. Not a problem, we just added it on after the fact but it maybe should have been mentioned in the rental description. Also, if your event is during business hours, it is open to the public. Again, wasn’t an issue for us but we didn’t know that until we went to visit in person and asked. Our event was so smooth and incredible. I only wish it didn’t come and go so quickly! Thank you guys for making it so great!
