At Sonnenberg, we love every kind of love. At the very heart of Sonnenberg is a great love story between Mary Clark Thompson and Fredrick Ferris Thompson. This love permeates every garden, fountain, statuary, and bridge on the property. A ceremony in one of the formal gardens creates memories of such a magical day surrounded by those you love and who love you back. Booking a ceremony or a reception also allows for breathtaking photography of your best day ever.

Vendor Turned Family Friend

Our wedding experience at Sonnenberg Gardens was packed with fond memories even given that it unfolded during COVID. The event planners at Sonnenberg are the best! From being our champion during the scheduling and rescheduling gauntlet (due to COVID), to being so generous with their time to get to know us, they made the whole experience so wonderful. By the time of the wedding, they became close family friends. They knew us and our story so well, they were able to make a very personal sign that greeted our guests at the door. That definitely brought a tear to my eye when I saw it. They saw to every detail and were a warm, helpful and friendly presence during the event.

The venue was stunning – the gardens were so gorgeous and the mansion veranda was such a lovely location for drinks and appetizers. We had our reception in the mansion and it was so lovely. It was a wonderful mix of stately, impressive, warm and inviting. The gardens provide so many beautiful backdrops for jaw-dropping wedding photos. A delightful benefit of having the wedding at Sonnenberg is that our guests were able to tour the gardens at any point during the day. So many of our friends are using photos taken in the gardens at our wedding in their Christmas cards this year. We highly recommend Sonnenberg Gardens as an unforgettable and in-every-way wonderful wedding venue.

The venue went above and beyond during the planning, the event, and after the fact. We will forever be grateful to Kris and her amazing staff.

The venue went above and beyond to make our day as simple and amazing as possible. They found stuff to store our extra food in when the caterer fell short here. They took pictures and sent them after the fact as well as checked-in generally. They made sure everyone knew what was happening at rehearsal and were always professional and respectful. We could not have chosen a better place.

Dream come true

Had my wedding in August of 2020. Within all the chaos of covid 19 my husband and I were still able to have a beautiful wedding with a beautiful venue!! All the staff helped our dreams come true.
