When my wife and I got married a year ago (today), it was at Talula's Garden for a Saturday brunch. We were married in the garden, before spending the next few hours in their intimate space, having one of the best days of our lives. If we had written a review in the warm afterglow of that day, it would have been effusive in its praise. Now? A year down the road? Talula's Garden stands out as even better with time. The wife and I sat down to talk about what stood out in our minds a year in. First - it's impossible to start with anything but the food and drinks. Talula's is a wonderful restaurant, and they didn't disappoint; people still tell us how good the food and drinks were. They have some standard menu items, then seasonal menu items, so we selected the menu a few weeks before our wedding (which was actually quite fun!) along with passed hors d'oeuvres. The drinks blew me away - and thanks to our bill breakdown, we know that our guests like The Artist the most. Next would be the beautiful space. The garden was an amazing backdrop to be married in, with funky seating, green seemingly surrounding us, and maybe best of all - no added expense to decorate. It was beautiful as is. It's a smaller space, but for 50 people it was perfect. The staff was a good as I've been with. For my wife and I, they continuously circulated and asked if we needed anything, brought us drinks (wine, champagne) the moment we came back from a few post-vow pictures in Washington Square Park, and were incredibly efficient. We also had several guests with significant food allergies, including shellfish, caffeine, citric acid, and gluten, and each guest had personal attention to explain the separate dishes made and ensure we wouldn't have a hospital run involved. And finally - ease of planning. We live in California but wanted to be married at home, and planning from 3 hours + 3500 miles away felt effortless. Kerri in particular (the Starr events coordinator) was a delight to work with. Responsiveness, detailed answers, and putting my anxious wife's mind to ease. The only downside to the whole experience was worrying about rain - as the ceremony backup plan is inside - but besides that, I don't regret for a second our choice. A year down the line, it was as good as we remembered.
