Brielle and the whole team at TRU are amazing! I knew how gorgeous the gardens are from my time on campus as a student so when it came time to pick a venue for our ceremony I knew that's where it had ... Read more to be. I will say the only downside is there is no shelter if it rains. Which it did pour rain through our whole ceremony but it was still beautiful.

Working with TRU Conference services for our wedding was an absolute dream! They were very creative and accommodating with all our dietary restrictions, and worked within our budget to give us a great ... Read more meal. They also take care of all the set-up/take-down of the event (excluding the decorations your bring in) which was a huge load off. One of the things I really enjoyed was the fact that with one signature we were able to check multiple major items off our list, such as set-up/take-down, catering, ceremony & reception venue, alcohol, as well as all the extras (linen, tables, chairs, tableware, etc). Being in school it was a huge relief to be able to get all the big pieces in one place. The garden is absolutely beautiful and provides amazing backdrop for photos, and the reception venue is just across the way so you don't have to worry about your guests relocating. Alcohol can be a bit pricey but the staff were great at working with us on this issue and came up with some creative solutions that worked within our budget. 1) their packages already include table wine; 2) we decided to provide our guests with sangria which worked out to be $3 a glass instead of $5.50 for a drink from the bar; 3) we were able to provide drinks tickets to our guests and only those turned in were counted; also the bride and groom were able to run a tab that would be invoiced after the event. These options allowed for us to provide for our guests without breaking our own bank. Our reception was held in the Mountain Room which we loved. The back wall is glass and it opens up onto a patio which overlooks the campus and has views of the mountains and valley.

She worked side by side with ... Read more us. She made herself available to us at all times. Krista was involved during our entire process. The Gardens....well they speak for themselves......AMAZING....STUNNING...that is what our guesses thoughts were. Our after wedding photos were picture perfect.....We never skipped a beat at our ceremony. Krista went above and beyond. Well worth the money... not expensive at all. Would recommend to all.
