    Brielle and the whole team at TRU are amazing! I knew how gorgeous the gardens are from my time on campus as a student so when it came time to pick a venue for our ceremony I knew that's where it had to be. I will say the only downside is there is no shelter if it rains. Which it did pour rain through our whole ceremony but it was still beautiful.

    TRU deserves a 10 star rating! From the first moment we sat down with them, until after the event they were amazing to work with. They made my fiancé and I feel very comfortable and stress free, every step of the way. Their packages are the best in town, and they will do ... View more everything is takes to accommodate your needs. We got married on New Years Eve, so we purchased their best package, along with a few extra's. The venue was absolutely stunning, We said "I do" in the Rotunda and our reception was in the Mountain Room. Their staff during the event was spectacular, I even had guest comment on how professional they were. The food was probably the best wedding food I have ever had, and my guest agreed! Their catering staff is creative and so accommodating. It truly was perfect, I can't say enough good things about them!

    We truly enjoyed our experience with TRU. We were married in the Horticulture gardens in September. It made for a beautiful setting and the photographs were amazing! Leading up to the event our wedding coordinator was very helpful with prompt responses to all of our inquiries. Even making last minute adjustments to seating plans to avoid added costs.

    Working with TRU Conference services for our wedding was an absolute dream! They were very creative and accommodating with all our dietary restrictions, and worked within our budget to give us a great meal. They also take care of all the set-up/take-down of the event (excluding ... View more the decorations your bring in) which was a huge load off. One of the things I really enjoyed was the fact that with one signature we were able to check multiple major items off our list, such as set-up/take-down, catering, ceremony & reception venue, alcohol, as well as all the extras (linen, tables, chairs, tableware, etc). Being in school it was a huge relief to be able to get all the big pieces in one place. The garden is absolutely beautiful and provides amazing backdrop for photos, and the reception venue is just across the way so you don't have to worry about your guests relocating. Alcohol can be a bit pricey but the staff were great at working with us on this issue and came up with some creative solutions that worked within our budget. 1) their packages already include table wine; 2) we decided to provide our guests with sangria which worked out to be $3 a glass instead of $5.50 for a drink from the bar; 3) we were able to provide drinks tickets to our guests and only those turned in were counted; also the bride and groom were able to run a tab that would be invoiced after the event. These options allowed for us to provide for our guests without breaking our own bank. Our reception was held in the Mountain Room which we loved. The back wall is glass and it opens up onto a patio which overlooks the campus and has views of the mountains and valley.

    We got married in the Horticulture Garden and had our reception in the Mountain room. The garden is so gorgeous on its own that we really didn't need to decorate. Great for pictures and nice and shady for the guests. The Mountain room is a beautiful bright space, with the option ... View more to open up the back wall out onto a deck. Great option for warm summer nights. The food was fantastic. Everyone raved about it. I had more then one person tell me they have never been to a wedding where everything was on time, but ours was, a big part of that is thanks for TRU. The staff were all great to deal with. Answered my million email questions right away, met with us more than once and made sure they were there to help when we were setting up. We took all of our photos on campus because it is so beautiful, why travel? Overall, highly recommend.
