"Our wedding reception at Glenward Gates was beyond amazing! Carol, Glenn and their staff were more than accommodating. They met our every need for our special day and went above and beyond making it magical. The view from the venue’s front is breath taking, there are tall pine trees surrounded by beautiful manicured grounds. We had a 40x40 tent set up next to the pool patio which followed down to a separate patio with a gorgeous water fall. The venue layout has so many options where to set up that it would accommodate most size parties.  Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue was and two of our guests want to book their parties. We are so thankful we went with Glenward Gates. Their venue provided us unforgettable memories!"

"Glenward Gates is the garden atmopshere every girl dreams of when they think about getting married . Every aspect, from the perfectly manicured gardens to the five stunning water features, is over the top. Carol and Glenn did everything to make our wedding day look and feel exactly how we wanted it. Because there are so many different beautiful areas on the estate worthy of showcasing, we chose to get married in the front yard on the steps of the house and move to the back for the reception. Guests were able to wander throughout the gardens, mingle around the pool deck, and marvel at the thirty foot waterfall. My husband and I could not have imagined a more perfect location for one of the most important days of our life together. We would recommend this place to anyone, whether it be for a wedding, reception, or some other special occasion. "

No matter what the age, everyone loves and enjoys the events at Glenward gates. Here are some of the comments a few of our brides have made about their experiences.


“We are still thanking and praising God for Carol, the late Glenn, and all of the family and staff for hosting an amazing baby shower for us.  Even with the rain, everyone is still complimenting and raving about how beautiful everything was, as well as the venue’s uniqueness.  You all definitely went above and beyond to make our day special and no sum could ever repay you for all you did. We can’t wait to come back and share for future events and to just stop by after the baby is born.  You don’t find many people like you these days; therefore, we felt the need to publicly thank you again.  Because of you and Glenward Gates, our baby shower was not just an event, it was an experience!”

Our wedding at Glenward Gates was a fairytale come true. The entire grounds were absolutely gorgeous and immaculately kept with beautiful features and flora too numerous to name. Most impressive were the waterfalls and the “Roman Gardens”, but they are only a small part of the adventure of strolling around the estate. The accommodations are numerous and the service was superb, perfect for any type of function or party. The Chappells saw to every detail allowing us to savor the wonderful moment. Our guests are still talking about how impressive and beautiful is was. We will never forget this awesome experience that made our wedding very special. We would, and have, recommended Glenward Gates to others for any type of function, or to just take a relaxing stroll through the beautiful gardens.
