We had such an amazing New Year’s Eve wedding at the Boerner Botanical Gardens, couldn’t recommend it enough! The space was perfect it was great having the garden room for our cocktail hour, and then a big reveal of the ballroom for our dinner. The staff was wonderful and the food was delicious. Even though we were married a month ago, we are still hearing complements on the dinner! If I had the chance to do it all again, I would do it the exact same way at Boerner’s!
I found Boerner Botanical Gardens in one of my searches. I contacted the events manager from Zilli Hospitality. From the very beginning, they were more than helpful, friendly, and so supportive. They made the planning so easy for me especially being 900 miles away. The moment I drove up the drive to the gardens, I knew I had made a wise decision. The atmosphere, the food and service were excellent. Thank you, Jan and thank you Zilli Hospitality!
This is an absolutely stunning venue. We booked their banquet room and couldn’t be happier. Lori and Margret were fantastic to work with throughout the whole process. Working with the gardens and with Lori made the whole wedding process stress free. Their in house caterer, Zilli, was also excellent. Their food was absolutely fantastic. I received many compliments from my guests on how beautiful the venue was, how excellent the food was, and even how fast the bartenders were! Zilli’s and the Gardens are a top notch venue and I would use them over and over again!
What is it that makes a good event?
Having clowns is always what makes an event a hit. Get lots of clowns!
How can I get food to my event?
Make it yourself…there’s no other way.
