    Most perfect venue

    We could not have picked a better venue for our wedding. Megan was so wonderful through the whole process especially with all the changes due to covid. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day. Thank you for all that you did!

    Thank you for the review and for sticking with us through all the changes! It was so rewarding to see the plan come together. Congratulations again!

    Beautiful wedding space!

    The Gardens at HCP is absolutely beautiful! Perfect setting for a wedding! We had to cancel our big wedding due to Covid, and they were so kind to offer us a special deal for our small elopement. We had a short ceremony in the Zen Garden with a few close friends, and took photos around rest of the gardens afterwards. Megan, the event coordinator, was so kind and helpful. They really helped make our day perfect.

    Thank you and congratulations again! It was such a treat to see you and William beaming ear-to-ear despite the rain. I can't wait to see more pictures!

    Individual care and personalized treatment

    Took time and care to ensure that all of our needs were met, made suggestions from prior experiences, and even answered questions that we never considered.

    The gardens were beautiful, the venue provides a variety of resources, and the staff were very friendly and professional!

    The Gardens at HCP's reply:

    Thank you Erika! It was such a joy to celebrate our last wedding ceremony of the year alongside you, Brad, and your loved ones. I'm so glad the sun stayed out for you and I wish you many more shared sunny days.

    Beautiful venue. Standard setting service

    We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding venue. Coordinator Megan Stacey is professional and personable and a definite attribute to the HCP community. We went with a morning/daytime booking which was offered at a discounted rate.

    The garden is also a teaching space for students at the local landscaping school, and we were drawn to the idea of it being a space where people can learn about horticulture and nature.

    Added bonus - We met our wedding commissioner, David Peck, during our initial visit bc he volunteers there on Fridays.

    An abundance of accolades from us to Megan and the staff at HCP! Highly recommended!

    The Gardens at HCP's reply:

    If I had a way to review my own clients, you and Thomas would get five stars! Thank you so much for your kind review and for helping to kick off our wedding season with so much style. I'll be recommending surprise ice cream sandwiches to everyone. Congratulations again and all the best!

    HCP 5 Stars!!

    My husband and I got married at the HCP, and we are so glad we did! Our original plan was to have the ceremony outdoors, but Megan made sure we had multiple weather permitting options! It rained down cats and dogs, but no worries, Megan had us all set for a beautiful ceremony inside the pavilion! Once the rain had slowed down, the wedding party was able to roam the gardens for photos! And because we had an off-season wedding, we had the whole place to ourselves! Guests were "wowed" at the absolute natural beauty of the venue! Very minimal decorations needed!!! We would definitely recommend the HCP for anyone looking to get married!

    The Gardens at HCP's reply:

    Thank you so much for your quick review, Chelsea! It was such a pleasure to help you and your family plan and execute the day. Hopefully we can host you for some sunny day pictures in the future. :) Congratulations again and all the best to you and Richard!

    An excellent venue at a fair price!

    For an all-in-one location (wedding and reception) the Gardens at HCP was incredible.

    We went the do-it-yourself route with wedding planning and Megan was invaluable in ensuring that the wedding went smoothly.

    The Gardens were fabulous for our photos, and the reception building and patio for the ceremony were great. We even had a plan to use the reception building (in the event of poor weather) and I’m sure it would have been fantastic as well.

    The Gardens at HCP's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind review, Brad! It's always a treat when a DIY wedding comes together so beautifully. All the best!

    The most beautiful venue and exceptional service

    We had our wedding ceremony at The Gardens at HCP in May 2019 and it was absolutely incredible. The setting is so beautiful! The event manager Megan was so helpful and supportive of our ideas. She was always available to answer questions and provide advice. We were so happy with our experience and would absolutely recommend HCP to anyone planning a wedding.

    The Gardens at HCP's reply:

    Thank you so much, Emily! You and Shawn were so much fun to work with, and I can't wait to see you AND your little one the next time you visit the Gardens.

    Beautiful and versatile wedding location!

    We recently had our wedding here, and it was absolutely perfect. The gardens and pavilion are so lovely, and the Event Coordinator Megan was fantastic to work with. She was helpful and thoughtful in responding to our planning questions, and was present on our wedding day to ensure everything went smoothly. We had initially planned an outdoor ceremony, but made a last-minute switch to hold our ceremony indoors at the pavilion due to rainy weather. Megan was a lifesaver in making sure everything was in place for our new ceremony location, so that we didn't have to worry about a thing. We had an absolutely wonderful time!

    The Gardens at HCP's reply:

    All the rain in the world couldn't put a damper on your day! Thank you for your optimism, flexibility and trust. Congratulations again and best wishes for a lifetime of sunshine!

    Easily the most beautiful and versatile venue in town!

    Truly the only venue that left us stunned and confident that this is where we wanted to get married. It had everything we needed in one spot: a breathtaking and accessible ceremony space, photography options galore, and a beautiful indoor (and air conditioned!) reception area with an adjacent patio and pond. We hardly needed any décor because the space is so stunning. This space gave us the freedom to bring in our own food, alcohol, and décor, which gave us our perfect, no fuss garden wedding. Our guests loved it!!! There’s just so much to see and do that any down time is easily filled with a walk through the garden or drinks on the patio. The hidden gem of this space is the event manager, the lovely Megan Stacey. Working with Megan to book and plan the wedding was a breeze, as she answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly, leaving nothing on the day up to chance. On the actual day, she will be there to ensure all goes smoothly, including by helping with queuing in the wedding party at the ceremony, and the set up/take down of the ceremony and reception. I will be forever grateful for her calming presence just before I walked down the aisle

    Thank you so much, Gab! It was such a pleasure to be part of your and Sylvain's special day. Can every wedding be a pizza party?! All the best for the rest of your summer and marriage.

    Wedding 2018 Gardens at HCP

    Our experience with Megan and the Gardens at HCP was nothing but amazing. Not only was the venue stunning but Megan took care of absolutely every worry or need. It was effortless carrying out our wedding at the Gardens and would be my first recommendation to anyone looking for a wedding venue.

    The Gardens at HCP's reply:

    Thank you, Jennifer! Your wedding photos are still some of my favourites to share with other couples looking for inspiration. It was so much fun to work with you and Lucas and the rest of your loved ones.
