About 6 months ago, my husband and I got married at The Atrium at Brooklyn Botanic Garden. If you're considering to get married at BBG with Patina Group (food caterers, and specifically Emily Piuggi), we highly recommend that you READ OUR FULL REVIEW (extended version is on Google, Facebook, and Yelp) as space is limited on this site. The garden of itself is a beautiful place; however, we DO NOT recommend a wedding hosted with Patina Group (their designated caterers). In a nutshell: Emily Piuggi, the point person of Patina Group, was impossible to reach unless she reached out for payments/barely responsive, she disappeared during our wedding, our ceremony was started late, some of our table decorations were not set up, they served the ENTIRELY WRONG ENTREE and blamed us for the confusion/mistake they've made, MY HUSBAND AND MY DINNER WAS THROWN OUT, there was no "captain" (for which they charged a fee to have) throughout the event and no point person for all the negligent mistakes they've made, and after much debating it took a whole two months for even the slight portion of refund. I have never written a review in my life, but this was by far the worst experience I've had. We don't ever wish for another husband/bride to go through an experience with Patina Group like we did in the future on their special day.

Wedding of my dreams! I've always wanted to get married at this venue and Victoria and her team made it possible. They were attentive to all the details. I had so many changes last minute and they accommodated to all of it. I can't stress how amazing the staff were, their service was impeccable. During that night, I forgot to bring a garter, Victoria and her team took the time to hand stitch one. I can't thank them enough. We had an awesome time at our wedding. The CAKE was delicious!!

We had an amazing wedding in large part thanks to the Patina team at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. They were communicative, prompt and easy to work with. We heard all night long that the food was great and people couldn't seem to stop telling us how delicious our cake was! We knew the day would be beautiful because of the setting but this team made it exceptional.

We had our wedding reception in the Palm House of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in June 2017. It was an incredibly beautiful venue. It offered everything you can think of. The garden area is exquisite and the Palm House itself is a breathtaking glass structure. We had to use their catering service, which worked out great because the food was excellent. We worked with Emily P. throughout the planning process who was easy to work with and extremely helpful. For example, we didn’t have a lot of time for pictures in the garden because our reception took place shortly after our church ceremony. Emily helped us plan accordingly, so we could get a golf cart to take us for a quick trip to the rose garden and some other areas for pictures before the cocktail hour ended. Additionally, all the wedding day staff was outstanding. They provided excellent service. We want to thank Emily P., everyone at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Patina Restaurant Group for their great work and for helping to make our wedding reception a truly wonderful experience.

The obvious: great food, beautiful venue. Not obvious: extremely professional staff; amazing communication skills; attention to detail (I really tested this one: I made changes so many times, coordinate made ZERO mistakes in updating her end); thorough. I cannot stress this enough, especially when it gets down to the wires, having a vendor that communicates well and has superb attention to detail makes a world of difference.

Our Brooklyn Botanic Garden Wedding (at the Palm House) was a fairytale come true! It was stunningly beautiful! The food was delicious. The service was great! Sometimes our communications during the planning period were slow, but it all worked out in the end. We did come many times prior to the wedding to look at the venue, which was very nice and convenient. They did everything they could to make our wedding beautiful and special and super fun! They were flexible with vendors and decor too. DREAM VENUE!

For a venue this expensive and where outdoor ceremonies are the norm, there is no excuse for generators to blow out in the middle of the ceremony with no backup plan. We had spent months and a lot of money preparing for this moment to share our vows in front of our closest family and friends. No one heard anything because there was no electricity to power our sound and the venue couldn't even pretend to try to remedy the situation or suggest a backup plan. The venue was rather unapologetic and has decided to ignore our request for an explanation and some form of courtesy compensation. I guess once you pay this place you no longer have any negotiation leverage. Furthermore, the banquet manager tried cutting off our party 2 hours prior to our contractual end time. Good thing we had a copy of the contract with us. While the venue is absolutely gorgeous and the food is decent, I caution any couple to think twice before booking with this vendor if you care for your vows to be heard.

We loved loved loved every moment of our wedding in the Atrium at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. We fell in love with the space as soon as we visited it and we made a point of returning to the gardens a few times in the run-up to our wedding; they are beautiful! We had a small wedding - only 50 guests - but the space was absolutely beautiful and perfect for that number. Everything was indoors (there was still snow on the ground!) and extremely well organized. They turned over the Atrium from 'Ceremony' to 'Party' without any of us having to lift a chair. It was such a relief not to have to organize linens or chairs or silverware ourselves; we left that all up to Patina and everything came out great. The caterers were top notch professionals - the servers were extremely well coordinated and the food was delicious - we even had an Asian street food cart during the Reception that was a hit with our Asian guests! Our only regret is that we can't get married at the BBG every week... but at least we have wedding cake in our freezer!

I had my wedding last weekend and it was absolutely beautiful. My guests loved the cocktail hour and food. Patina group is easy to work and professional. They made sure everything ran smoothly and every small detail was taken care of.

I knew from the first time we visited the Brooklyn Botanic Garden that it was where I wanted to get married. And while I could tell from that first visit that it would be a gorgeous, meaningful, and special place to get married, I didn't know at the time how professional and helpful Emily and her team would be. In the weeks leading up to the wedding and on the day of they seemed so on top of everything. There's so much to think about on the day of your wedding, so it was nice to know that everything would be taken care of and that I wouldn't have to worry about everything going smoothly.

Sarah and her team at BBG did a fantastic job creating the wedding of our dreams. David and I could not have been happier. Everyone kept remarking on how beautiful the venue was and how AMAZING the food was. They were incredibly accomodating with food allergies and special menu requests. Thank you Sarah!!! We could not have imagined a better venue or caterer.
