crossOur name,

the Garden by the Gate,

reflects our love of gardening but it also reflects our intent in starting a wedding related business. tGbtG stands for “to God be the Glory.” We’d like to put the emphasis on our relationship with the Creator of all nature in both the way we garden and do business, but also as a philosophy for wedding planning. Weddings are about marriages, and the best marriages are a relationship not only between two people but also between the couple and God.

Wedding planning can get a little crazy with all the ideas that are out there from Pinterest to wedding magazines, and blogs galore. It’s your day and it should reflect what’s import to you as a couple. We’re here to help you have a lovely celebration with family and friends as you begin your new life. And we’d like to give all the Glory to God.
