Thank you to Kaitlin and her team for a beautiful day!! I planned the entire wedding remotely from a different state, and Kaitlin's replies to emails were timely and thorough enough that it was as easy as being there. I wish I could relive the day over and over again- the venue, the coordination and the food were all excellent, and we received compliments galore on all of the above. I went to the Science Museum often as a child, and it was so special to enjoy the best day of my life there with family and friends. Mahalo from Hawaii!!

The sunken garden is a breathtaking place to get married. The Conservatory is a jaw dropping crystal palace to begin with, but once you get into the sunken garden ... it's like a European fairytale garden from a dream. Our guests could hardly believe their eyes and I honestly couldn't have picked a more beautiful ceremony venue in Minnesota. I also couldn't believe that the entire place is kept operational by donations and event rentals. During regular business hours, there's no admissions to these lovely gardens for the public, and only a $2-3 suggested donation to get in. I loved the idea that my wedding ceremony helped pay to keep these gardens so accessible to the public. I do want to mention that this place is not very flexible. This is because it's a public garden that's open 7 days a week during the day to the public first, and a private wedding venue in the evenings second. Once you understand that, it's easy to understand why there are certain limitations - their priority is (and should be) to preserve the gardens first. Consequently, it's a perfect place for a small elegant wedding for a mostly adult guestlist.
