Windmill Island Gardens is pleased to announce that they have has been selected as a 2015 ­­winner in The Knot Best of Weddings, an award representing the highest-rated wedding professionals as reviewed by real couples, their families and wedding guests on The Knot.  This is the 5th year in a row Windmill Island Gardens have been selected for The Knot Best of Weddings.

 “We are thrilled to receive this honor, and now be inducted into the Best of Weddings Hall of Fame. It is truly a joy to work with wonderful families and couples to help make their wedding dreams come true.” – Alisa Crawford, Event Coordinator, Windmill Island Gardens

 Here is what one mom had to say about her daughter’s wedding:

“My daughter had a vision and the Windmill Island venue and staff made it all possible. They were accommodating and very helpful. It was a beautiful day but even if the weather had not cooperated, I felt very comfortable with their backup plans for an indoor ceremony. Our guests loved the gardens and the "tent" was beautiful. True professionals with a romantic side.”

With a rich history of providing quality content and inspiration to couples, The Knot is making it easier for couples to connect with just the right wedding vendor to create a wedding that in unique to them.
