"Marin Art and Garden Center: I love this venue! When I'm there, I'm struck by the natural yet manicured beauty and I am so impressed by the well-oiled-machine wedding operation they have going on. It's seriously a North Bay gem tucked away in Ross. I'm thrilled to be working there in June and I am hoping for more weddings there in 2013! Also, Insalata's is catering-yum!"

"My partner (Desiree) and I got married last
year at MAGC in August. We were finally putting together our wedding album (a
year late!) and thought about you and how lovely it was to have our wedding at
MAGC and to have you help us coordinate it. We really were so happy with our
decision to work with you guys, and really appreciate how accommodating and
helpful you were through the process."

All of your help in planning, in helping us coordinate site visits, in working with our vendors, and in cheering us along the way was much appreciated. We can't think of a better place to have had our wedding and will definitely recommend the Marin Art and Garden Center to others!"

"We received remarkable service from staff members at the Marin Art and Garden Center. The events coordinator, Anna Mayfair, was extremely helpful to us in planning our event. She was knowledgeable, professional, compassionate and understanding. We were also impressed with the hard work and cooperation of Bruce Richmond [security/house manager]. Bruce's expertise was key to having it all set up efficiently and according to our plan. Regina Ellis was a marvel in the kitchen; she was very cooperative and helpful during the entire event. You have a beautiful facility and we appreciate the use of it for the memorial." Ruth Sempell, Rental Client, 2011
