Susie and David were lifesavers. After our original venue canceled six weeks before our wedding, they quickly came to our rescue and put together a glorious wedding for us and our guests. The venue was just perfect for our 80-guest wedding. I mean, just the photo of us lighting the fire pit made the entire thing worthwhile! But seriously, Sweet Lane Gardens had everything we needed. We used the rooms in the house to get ready and sign our official documents with our immediate family. We then had a ceremony in the round on the front lawn (complete with live music!) and cocktail hour and a reception on the back lawn. Our band was set up on the back deck, which we used as our dance floor. The kitchen and dining room were the perfect size for our caterer to prep the food and set up a buffet line. And the FLOWERS! Getting married in a plant nursery meant that we had access to all their live plants and flowers, and the landscaping was perfect for fairytale-like photos. But more than their amenities and their professionalism, I was blown away by Susie and David's compassion for our plight. They were so caring and generous with us that we completely forgot all our previous venue woes on the day of our wedding. Truly, they were a dream team.
Thank you so much for being amazing hosts and coordinators for our incredible day! Everyone was raving about how beautiful the venue is and how much they loved it! Once again, Emily and I appreciate everthing you gues did and we'll be sure to come visit you in the future.

I wish I could give David and Susie a 10 out of 5 stars, because 5 just isn`t enough. We got married at Sweet Lane Gardens last July, and it was absolutely perfect for what we wanted. We checked out numerous venues prior to meeting with David and Susie and where those venues (mostly wineries) made us feel like a business transaction, Sweet Lane Gardens felt like we were having our wedding at a family friends house. They were very accommodating and genuinely cared about our wedding and guests. They were flexible where needed, but also knew what worked best with their venue to optimize the overall experience. I am not one of those brides that had their wedding planned out to a tee, so having a pro like David give suggestions was extremely helpful and he took care of all the small details day of to make the day stress free. I cannot recommend having your wedding at Sweet Lane Gardens enough. In fact, during our wedding we had friends come up and ask us who to talk to so that they could have their wedding at Sweet Lane as well. Their pricing is extremely reasonable and unlike most other venues, they don`t nickel and dime you for every little thing. They were straight forward and very transparent. Thank you David, Susie, and all of your staff for making our day so perfect! Samantha
Words cannot express my feelings of gratitude. You took what could have been a disaster and made it beautiful. You went above and beyond to make Elizabeth and Gary's wedding awesome! Jennell
We want to thank you for helping to make Adam and Ann's wedding so fabulous. Sweet Lane Gardens looked as nice as I imagined, it was perfect. The ivy on the chuppah, the flowers at the base, all was just how we wanted it, Thank you, it looked so great. Your assistance to all of the wedding goings on, while getting the wedding party in the right places at the right times, was so helpful. The back lawn, all set with tables, flowers, people, it could not have been more perfect. It was a magical evening! The fire pit lighting was a highlight!
I am glad I rented the heaters, I rented through Grapevine Caterers for $70 per heater rather than $120 at the others. They kicked out the heat and people gathered around them, which was nice to see all of the mini-group conversations that were going on.
Thank you for all you did to make it a perfect evening- the sod and carpet, too.
Two months ago I received a voicemail from Anne asking me to give her a call. They were told that they needed to book a new venue; the one they had originally wanted was sold and no longer doing events. Can you imagine?! Naturally, they were a little stressed out (not nearly as stressed as I would’ve been!) but after some search, Ann’s now Mother-In-Law found this cute little place called Sweet Lane Gardens – and man, did they hit the jackpot! The grounds were stunning, the staff was perfect an as a bonus the newly weds got to light the bonfire with a hot air balloon torch!!! Yes!!!
