    such a dream

    The RBG was our dream venue! The gardens speak for themselves. But the staff - they are one in a million. Emily and Brookelyn did everything they could to make us feel special and well taken care of on our day and everyday leading up to it. They took all the uncertainty with covid in stride and made us feel secure in all the decisions being made. We didn't need to think about one detail, they did all of that for us. The day was nothing short of perfect.

    Perfect wedding in paradise

    Robin and her team went above and beyond to ensure our day went well. They were always there to answer any questions and put our minds at ease. The catering staff was very friendly and worked very hard. We are so thankful and happy we chose such a stunning venue as RBG for our big day.

    Wonderful Experience

    Robin, Deanna and their teams were absolutely wonderful to work with. We had a specific vision for our wedding to be a celebration of both of our cultures and they were able to make that happen. Our friends and family are still talking about how much they enjoyed the food!

    Hi Katie, on behalf of RBG, it was my pleasure to help you plan your special day!
    I wish you and Robb many years of happiness, maybe we will see you around in the gardens now that you have a membership.
    Don't forget, we do baby showers too! LOL
    Take care

    Beautiful venue. Amazing staff

    I have to start by saying Brooklyn and Robin played a big part in making our wedding wonderful. Brookly’s energy is just what I needed to ease any jitters I had that day.

    The gardens are absolutely beautiful and with the renovations they recently have made it picture perfect.
