I saved the very last review for you - Brownstone Gardens. Even as I type this review...my heart is filled with joy and my eyes with tears. You...Barbara DuMont...woman you are a rock star! You made our wedding the event of the year! My Facebook, email, instagram, Twitter hasn't stopped blowing up with comments about how wonderful our wedding was. Effortless. That's all I can say! If there were hiccups we didn't know about it. The food service was awesome. From you fanning out my gown before I took that walk to everything just everything! Thank you so much. It WAS my dream wedding! In my dream location!!!! Thank you! People if you're looking for a venue and you want romantic elegance please don't sleep on this place!!!! And don't let Barbara's strict demeanor scare you. You is like that because she is passionate about making your day special! And ours was just that just so special!

My husband and I got married at Brownstone Gardens on June 5th, 2010. We both knew we wanted to get married outside it was hard for us to find a venue that was not a golf course and was resonably priced, that was until we found Brownstone. From our first meeting at Brownstone I knew this was the perfect venue. Kay- Kay and her staff made planning my dream wedding so easy and stress free. From caterer tastings to picking our DJ, Brownstone gardens was a life saver. Like Stephanie, most of my guests state that our wedding was the most fun they had ever had at a wedding (they loved our food, our Dj Mike Vincent and of course the photobooth). All the staff at Brownstone were accomadating (we were able to get a jumpee for all the kids along with babysitters so all the parents could have a good time), hard working and were willing do do whatever they had needed to do to get the job done. It was so incredible to be able to enjoy my day with my freinds and family and not worry about what was going on in the background. Kay- Kay and her staff were able to handle everything that came their way so we were able to enjoy our day without any worries or stress. I recommend Brownstone Gardens to all my newly engaged friends because of the amazing expereince we had with them.

I just had my wedding at Brownstone Gardens and couldn't have picked a more amazing venue! My husband(!) and I knew immediately that we wanted to have our wedding at Brownstone Gardens. The beautiful and lush venue was just what we had been looking for. Our coordinator was Barbara and I do not know what I would've done without her! She went above and beyond for us. Thanks to Barbara and the entire Brownstone Gardens staff, they made our day the most special, amazing, and love filled day!

Brownstone Gardens... where do I begin? I am absolutely in love with this place. My husband and I were talking about how sad we are that we don't have a reason to go back there soon, and now we encourage everyone we know that's getting married to consider this place, just so we can go back and relax in this beautiful landscape one more night! I had been touring venues for about a month. I had found some that I liked, some more than others. However, each one wasn't perfect. I found something at each one that I felt could be improved. I honestly thought I had found a venue before I toured Brownstone. A friend of mine called me up and told me she had read some fantastic things about Brownstone and I should just check out one more... I'm glad she did. As soon as I walked in I knew, I KNEW this was the place. It was perfect. I couldn't find one single thing that I thought had room for improvement. From the ambience, the amazing staff (Barbara and Kay-Kay THANK YOU!!), the breathtaking scenery, everything was perfect. Before my wedding day I got the chance to go back a few times for events they set up for future couples, like caterer tastings, bridal faires etc and each time I set foot in that place it made me more and more excited for my wedding day. They provide a day of coordinator who works tirelessly to help you make decisions and offer suggestions along the way. They are highly experienced and help make the day flows so efficiently it's a blessing. They have a GREAT team of suggested vendors that you can't go wrong with. AND the landscaping is INCREDIBLE. Every single inch of Brownstone is peaceful, elegant, and beautiful. So many hidden gems that are perfect for picture taking. The prices of Brownstone are affordable and they offer payment plans leading up to your wedding day so you don't spend your first newlywed years in debt. I can't emphasize enough how fantastic this venue is. My wedding day went perfectly thanks to Brownstone! I will find a way to be back!

My wedding was actually yesterday 09/13 so i'm writing this while it's fresh on my mind. If you're looking for the complete package when it comes to an all-in-one ceremony and reception venue, Brownstone is the place to go. Nick and I were wowed from the moment we first walked into the venue. It is GORGEOUS. The lush green gardens, beautiful landscaping, and amazing koi ponds (the fish really sold us haha.) But along with the beautiful venue, the staffing made us truly want to book with Brownstone. Their staff is top notch. Every single person we have dealt with through this year long process has been kind, knowledgeable, super on top of things, and all around amazing. Our coordinator Barbara was always there to answer our questions, no matter how big or small they may have been. We never had to worry about something going wrong because when we were concerned, Barbara or Kay-Kay were always able to find an easy solution. When it came time for our final walk-through before the wedding, we went over every single detail so we knew what was happening, when it should happen, and whatnot. So let's get to the wedding. Yes I was a nervous bride. Of course I was worried things could go wrong but guess what...the night was perfect! Every single thing was thought of that you wouldn't normally think of. The kids didn't want normal wedding food so Brownstone got pizza's and capri suns...it was a super big hit! The bridal room was kept nice and cool so when I was getting overheated I could escape in there for a few minutes to cool down. It was the little things. Barbara, my DJ, and photographer were constantly in contact with each other so that everything would go smooth and happen on time, and guess what...every.single.thing. went smooth and happened on time. We were actually ahead of time by the end of the night. It was truly a magical night and one we will never forgot. So go ahead, book an appointment with Brownstone. I know you'll fall in love with it like we did.

My husband and I got married here at Brownstone Gardens this August, and it was everything we wanted! I purposely saved this venue to visit last, because I knew I would fall in love with it once I see it, and indeed I did. The venue is so pretty during the day, and oh my gosh, look just as gorgeous at night! They have 3 different areas that can be used to your liking, and each with its uniqueness. At first, I was worried that it's outdoor everything--it's going to be super hot in the summer, and there would be bugs. But since we started our wedding early evening, it started to cool so the heat was not a problem at all. I also didn't notice any mosquito or nasty bugs at all...just beautiful butterflies and dragonflies that add special touch the the venue! Also at the grand court, when the wind blow, the white flowers sprinkle down like snow--it's soooo pretty during the ceremony! Brownstone also has preferred vendors like caterers, photobooth, linens, etc, which made planning easier. The staffs here are AMAZING! They are all super responsive and are always there to help! I want to especially thanks Barbara for the initial consultation, Kay-Kay for all the logistics and last minute changes, and Diana for coordinating our wedding. They all had to dealt with my last minute-ness, and they were all quick to handle to my requests! I couldn't have done it without their patience! This venue has so much to offer. My husband and I had a great time and couldn't be happier with our wedding!

Our experience at Brownstone was exceptional from the beginning. They really work with their couples to make the whole process as easy and as flexible as possible. My wife and I were really stressed out considering the details of the ceremony, but once the rehearsal started, our event coordinator, Barbara put us at ease. She had already thought about what would work, as she knows the venue inside and out, and our rehearsal, ceremony, and reception went smoothly. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for an outdoor venue.

Brownstone Gardens is such an amazing and beautiful venue. It exceeded all of our expectations and really was more than I ever imagined for my wedding. When we first went looking for Brownstone, we were skeptical as we drove down Brentwood Blvd and then the gravel drive, but once we entered the property we immediately fell in love! Truly a hidden gem. During the day the gardens are beautiful - the foliage & waterfalls; but at night, the string lighting on the trees and in the grand courtyard made everything feel like a dream. The staff at the venue were absolutely wonderful. Barbara is amazing! She took a lot of the stress off of my shoulders during the planning stage and made sure our wedding ran smoothly. Barbara and the staff took such good care of us and made sure that the day of the wedding I had nothing to worry about so I could really enjoy our day - and with 200 guests, kids & a few special requests, that is saying a lot. Brownstone accomodated everyone from handling guests with mobility needs to a kid area with a jumpy so that the kids and parents could have a great time. We still have guests raving about how beautiful the venue was and how much fun they had. Brownstone Gardens has so much to offer and we would definitely recommend them to everyone! Thank you Brownstone Gardens for making my wedding more than I could have ever imagined.

An absolutely beautiful event space. We had our ceremony and reception at Brownstone Gardens on October 03, 2014. All of our guests had so many nice things to say about the venue. We wanted a place that was unique and magical. Kay Kay was our coordinator and made sure everything went smoothly she was great to work with and was able to help us with everything we needed and wanted, Our guests loved the garden feeling and all of the romantic lighting. Dinner was amazing Music was amazing. Our whole evening was a night to remember. We couldn't have been more happy with our wedding! Not only is the property absolutely beautiful, but Kay Kay and all the staff at Brownstone were so helpful and knowledgeable about everything. I would recommended this Venue to anyone looking for a night to remember.

Wow! That's the first thing that comes to my mind when i think about my amazing venue! My husband and i got married her on August 23, 2014 and we would never think of changing it if we could. The day was amazing and it was all thanks to brownstone gardens! We booked our wedding with brownstone 2.5 years in advance which gave us plenty of time to get to know the staff and how amazing everyone involved is. Brownstone worked with every question or request we had! The response time is AMAZING! Kay-Kay was soooo much help when trying to plan our day, every question answered, and amazing recommendations. On the day of brownstone went above and beyond to make our day run smooth. We had a start time of 5 o'clock and if i can guesstimate the time, i was walking down the aisle at 5! Not many weddings run on time and this was all because of them, everything was ready and perfect. Not only were we more than satisfied with brownstone, but so were our guests. We have received so many compliments about the venue and how gorgeous it was. This venue is amazing and if your looking for a world of your own to enjoy the day in this is your place. Nicely tucked away and absolutely gorgeous inside! We wouldn't trade anything about our day and would recommend brownstone to anyone! Thank you Brownstone for all you did to make our day amazing!
