Full Access to Glenward Gates
Guests are allowed access to the entire estate grounds regardless of which area the event takes place, with the exception of swimming pool admittance. This includes the gardens, courtyard, fish ponds,  patios and waterfall.  A large paved area is available for dancing.

Privacy and Convenience
We will only schedule one event per weekend, giving you the opportunity to prepare the site on the day prior and the ability to leave items such as wedding dresses, tuxedos and favors so that the day of the event is as relaxing as possible. For your convenience, arrival can be as early as 8 a.m. on the day of the event and there is no departure deadline for your guests at the end of the evening.  

Vendor Flexibility
You have complete freedom when coordinating your wedding as we have no restrictions on your selection of outside vendors. Preferred vendor usage can, however, be coordinated for you through Glenward Gates.

Nearby Accommodations
There are over ten hotels within a fifteen mile radius of our location for the convenience of you and your guests.
Tours
Join us for a leisurely stroll through the array of formal gardens adorned with fish ponds, waterfalls and Italian statues.  Guided tours are available upon prior request and include Master Gardener instructional tour, relaxing visitation with property owners, complimentary refreshments, opportunity to purchase estate grown American and English boxwoods, and use of meeting room as needed.
           
Visits are by appointment only. Please call to schedule.
