There is such an emphasis these days on buying local to help boost the economy. There is no reason why this idea has to stop when it comes to your wedding. There are wedding venues to suit every bride’s style right here in Garner!
The Historic Home
The Rand-Bryan House is located on Highway 50 in Garner. You may have seen it, looking picturesque at the top of the hill, nestled among acres of Christmas trees. The land surrounding the house has a rich history, dating back to the 1700s, and the Rand-Bryan House itself was built in 1871. Renovations to turn the home into an event venue began in 2008. There are several locations on the scenic property – both indoor and outdoor – to host both your ceremony and reception. Tables and chairs are available for rent through the venue. The Rand-Bryan house and grounds can accommodate almost any size wedding! (For more information visit: www.rand-bryanhouse.com)
The Elegant Ballroom and Gardens
The Hall at Landmark almost sneaks up on you at the intersection of Highway 42 and Cleveland Road in Garner. Hidden behind the enchanting structure are lush gardens just waiting for your dream ceremony! The Hall at Landmark also offers the Marie Antoinette Grand Ballroom and Napoleon Bonaparte Cigar Lounge. And to enhance the elegance of your event, gold Chiavari wedding chairs, white garden chairs, ivory or gold table cloths, and a French parquet dance floor are all available for rent. The gardens are a fantastic spot for wedding portraits! (For more information visit: www.thehallatlandmark.com)
The Green Nature Center
Lake Benson and White Deer Park are anchors of our community, hosting events and providing recreation for citizens year-round. They are also the perfect spot to have your “green” wedding! Many locations within the parks are available for rent, including the amphitheater at Lake Benson and the Nature Center and deck at White Deer Park. The Nature Center is a LEED Certified “Green Building” and has many environmentally friendly features, most beautiful of which are the 100-year old reclaimed wood floors that came from the homestead that was on the property before the park. Another beautiful feature are the floor-to-ceiling windows on three walls! Park staff are always on site during rentals to help.
