Oh my goodness, we could not have chosen a better venue to have our wedding at!  The owners were wonderful, they were there every step of the way, from allowing us to come visit the property as often as we wanted to making sure we started the wedding on time.  If you want an outdoor wedding, and would like the ceremony at the same location as your reception this is the place to celebrate your day!

This venue was BEAUTIFUL!  My friends and family were completely blown away by how beautifully landscaped this garden is.  Lanora is so wonderful to work with and is quick to respond back any time I sent her an email or gave her a call.  She really helps you figure out how you want the venue set up for your big day and has a great place that caterers and DJ's love to be at.  There is a groom's getting ready room and a Bridal room, both have AC which was great for our very hot August wedding.  I definitely did not have to buy any flowers because this place is just filled with gorgeous arrangements.

Hi Lanora,

Thank you so much for letting us use your beautiful garden for the wedding!  Thank you so much for all your help organizing the vendors and making the garden look just how we wanted it.  Our wedding was perfect!  How many people can say there was a thunder and lightning storm in the middle of their wedding.  :)

Thanks again!

We would like to thank Lanora and John at the Log House Gardens for making our son and our new daughter-in-law, Christopher & Ashley's  wedding reception absolutely breathtaking!  You both were so fabulous and attentive to our familiesí needs and desire for the reception to reflect our wishes!

Log House Gardens is a true reflection of the warmth and goodness in your hearts!  Just the first few steps into your amazing gardens, we were encompassed by a beauty of peace and love.

She is so knowledgeable and accommodating, we knew the moment we met and saw the many beautiful flowers, manicured landscaping, this indeed would be the place for a dream come true wedding!  Her suggestions on catering, reception, etc., made the wedding so much less stressful for us!

The countless compliments we received regarding the stunning beauty and comfort of the garden are easily captured in the amazing photographs.  These are priceless memories, we will cherish forever!

The Log House Gardens is absolutely beautiful!   A definite PARADISE for garden ceremonies!

I did not want to waste any time and
 wanted to get this letter to you right away to let you know how grateful I am that I chose you and your beautiful venue for my daughter's wedding.  You are extremely helpful, flexible, and accommodating.  I can't thank you enough for your help in planning and with little emergencies that came up.  Your venue is gorgeous  and I will recommend you to anyone who is looking for a stunningly beautiful location for their wedding and reception

My only regret is that you did not have the reception area at the time I booked my daughter's wedding.  I surely would have had the ceremony and reception there if I could have.  Thanks again for all your help and wonderful advice.  After I get photos, I will send you some so that you can post them if you wish to show people how beautiful their wedding could be.  Also, feel free to post my letter.  I want everyone to know about your wonderful place and you and your wonderful family.

Thanks again for a uniquely memorable experience,

I absolutely loved my experience with Log House Gardens and the entire staff. From the very first time we visited the grounds to our wedding day send-off, they were the most knowledgeable, genuine, and all around helpful people we could have asked for to help us with our big day. They were such a help in planning out the day itself, but they also helped us choose some of our vendors, accommodated planning sessions at the venue, and even helped with last minute details and emergencies the day before and day of our wedding. They just made the whole situation, which could have been extremely stressful, such a joy to experience. I would highly recommend Log House Gardens, as well a every member of their staff, to anyone planning a special occasion. They are fantastic people!!

Dear Lenora,

     First off, I could not say enough thank you's to you, your family, and your staff. It's hard to figure out how to thank someone for being such a big part in what Kyle and I would say was one of the best days of our lives. From the very first time we saw Log House Gardens we knew it was where we wanted to get married. You made it so easy to feel comfortable and confident that our day would be all we imagined and more. It was so nice to have just our event there that day and took a lot of the stress away.
     The gardens looked so beautiful and all our guests and vendors couldn't get over how amazing everything looked. Thank you for making our day so memorable and so perfect. I would tell anyone looking at your venue that they won't find a better family and staff to help them, or a more beautiful place to get married.
     Thank you for everything!!

     I am writing to express our sincere gratitude to Log House Gardens for a job well done.  My daughter was married there last Summer (2009) in a beautiful ceremony.
     My daughter, Liz, knew from the moment we arrived at Log House Gardens that this was her special place.  I think she fell in love with it because it is simple, but truly beautiful and elegant.  Our first meeting with Lanora Blake went well.  She went over everything with us in detail, showed us the gardens, but most of all made us feel welcome.
     As the big day grew closer, I talked with Lanora about details of the wedding and was always greeted with a willing and helpful approach.  Liz and I stopped by Log House Gardens occasionally with friends and family that wanted to view it, as we had been told we could come by anytime to look around.  As Spring and finally Summer approached, everything at the Gardens was in bloom and beautifully manicured.
     Liz's wedding day was wonderful.  We did not have a wedding coordinator, so for wedding day, Lanora graciously filled that job.  She and her husband were with us all day.  Helping out with whatever they could, and making our day go smoothly.  We ended up having the perfect day!  What a beautiful site Log House Gardens was for the first of our four children (and only daughter) to get married.  My husband and I even stayed and chatted with the Blake's after everyone had left and the cleanup was finished.  Log House Gardens, as Liz knew it would be, was the perfect place for her wedding!
                                                                                              With warm regards,
                                                                                                                Melissa Liechty

...We'd just like to thank you for meeting with us yesterday. You were so warm and friendly, and we really enjoyed meeting you. We're excited to have locked in the date for our Big Day, but even more for knowing that we're choosing such a great location where we're seen as a real couple, not just a dollar sign. You were wonderful and we all think the world of you! Thank you for everything and we'll be in touch!

...Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your hard work and help, we couldn't have done it without you and your husband! We thought everything was just beautiful and worked out perfectly. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding and place to get married.
Thanks again,
Nate and Elise
