My fiance and I decided to elope for a more intimate ceremony before the big one, and we found the Choral Gardens online the day before we made the big plunge. Despite the last-minute reservation, Carolyn and Ralph beautifully arranged everything and made our big day magical. We didn't find any other venues that would arrange a bouquet, reception, wedding officiant, and wedding cake in less than 24 hours, but Carolyn and Ralph did all of this graciously. We didn't stay after the ceremony, but we viewed a portion of the upstairs which was clean and cozy. The gardens were lovely. We look forward to staying here in the near future. We definitely recommend this location for couples interested in a small wedding or elopement.
