wedding+event venue: paul j ciener botanical gardens

earlier this month, i was honored to photograph the guild luncheon for the triad/triangle perfect wedding guide. the luncheons are a great way to meet other wedding vendors of all kinds and each month they are held at a different location.  the gorgeous paul j ciener botanical garden in kernersville, nc were the hosts for the april triad luncheon.   speakers were the pwg's intern, rebecca cadden, and hooman bahrani, of vesic photography. they spoke about the importance of utilizing pinterest as a wedding professional.

the garden opened to the public last spring in the historic district. not only is it a place to enjoy flora of all kinds, the facility can be rented for business luncheons, conferences, cocktail socials, and of course weddings. they offer a beautifully appointed ballroom with french doors opening up to the terrace with a view of the gardens, a full catering kitchen, bride's quarters with private bathroom, and an area for the groomsmen to prepare.  the gardens offer scenic areas for photos and the terrace is a nice place for a wedding ceremony or to dine under the stars.  if you haven't been by for a visit, you must!
