Gardencourt is proud to be Louisville's premiere wedding venue offering unique, one of a kind meeting facilities, wedding and reception sites, and selections of catering cuisine to meet both the professional and social entertaining needs of our community.
Built in 1906, today this classic three-story Beaux Arts home is owned by the Louisville Seminary and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The first floor contains more than 4,000 square feet of space available for rental by members of the Seminary community or general public for weddings, conferences, retreats, and social gatherings. From small meetings to full-scale wedding ceremonies and receptions, your event expectations will be met with complete satisfaction.
The rich woodwork and marble fireplaces lend warmth to breakfast, luncheon, and dinner meetings. The high ceilings and carved grand staircase provide a perfect backdrop for weddings, receptions, and special occasions.
Outdoors, at the heart of the fourteen-acre estate, which overlooks Cherokee Park, are the formal rose gardens, colonnade, pool and arbors created by the Olmsted Brothers, son and stepson of Fredrick Law Olmsted. Spring, summer, and fall, this idyllic setting is available to hosts who wish to welcome their guest alfresco.
Once you have visited Gardencourt we think you will agree that it's a beautiful location, secluded, yet near downtown Louisville, and will meet your standards.
