Our New Venue

The Gardens at Queen City Center

We’re pleased to introduce The Gardens at Queen City Center. In the heart of downtown Manchester, a historic industrial building underwent a remarkable transformation. What was once the legacy of the city’s industrial age has emerged as the Queen City Center, a modern-day nexus of culture, commerce, and community. The Gardens at Queen City Center is a year round, indoor, ‘industrial chic meets urban revival’ venue. This one-of-a-kind space can accommodate events with up to 75 guests. Learn more today.

A Legacy of Beauty

Our grounds have been nurtured for decades and include an exquisite, formal rose garden enclosed by a custom wooden fence, an extensive stroll garden, gorgeous stone walls, woodland garden, fruit trees and access to mountain trails and wooded walks. We are a two minute drive from Goffstown Village and a 25 minute drive from the Manchester airport.

My wife and I got married at The Gardens on 9/2/23 and could not have been happier with our experience. We first met with Lisa M, the Sales Director, in December 2022. Even with a foot of snow on the ground, we knew this was the venue for us (and the amazing photos on Lisa’s iPad certainly helped us envision the venue in its full glory). We got super lucky that The Gardens had a Saturday available in September 2023. The Gardens uses the Honeybook platform which made correspondence and coordination super easy. The team at The Gardens, primarily Lisa R (Operations Director) was always timely and helpful with their responses. We did a final details appointment with Tom H (Events Director) about 6 weeks before the wedding which was extremely helpful. Working with The Gardens does require some extra coordination by the couple since the venue isn’t full service (e.g. doesn’t come with an in-house caterer or bartender), but the extra coordination was easy based on how organized The Gardens team was and our decision to mostly use The Gardens’ preferred vendors.

We did our rehearsal walkthrough and dropped off our décor and alcohol the day before the wedding, which was really convenient. On the day of the wedding, the team from The Gardens coordinated directly with our day-of-coordinator to ensure everything was set up just as we wanted it. Our DOC and The Gardens team coordinated with all the vendors to ensure everything went smoothly throughout the day. Overall, we’re so pleased with our decision to get married at The Gardens and would absolutely recommend it as a venue to couples considering it as an option!

September 2023

We had THE best experience at the Gardens at Uncanoonuc Mountain. Tom and Melanie were so wonderful to work with, and the team at the Gardens was able to accommodate our unique vision for our wedding day. We did our first look and shared private vows in the Stroll Garden—The grounds were so beautiful, it seriously felt like a dream. Thank you to the team at the Gardens for making it such a magical day!!

June 2023

We got married at The Gardens at the beginning of June 2023 and couldn’t have asked for a better venue. From finding the venue, to after the wedding, the Gardens team have been amazing to work with. Shout out to Gillian and Victoria for making the wedding run so smoothly. There is a magic to the Gardens that our photographer (Sydney Kerbyson) told as about, which when the weather for the day was forecasted to be full of thunderstorms, it only started when the ceremony and cocktail hour was finished and everyone was under the tent ready for the reception. The venue is so beautiful and allows for guests to explore everywhere. We were able to have our dog Louie with us throughout the day which made it so special and was able to use the cottage to keep him comfortable in the AC. Their vendor recommendations are top notch too. We highly recommend The Gardens and wish we could re-live our wedding day over and over again.

June 2023

The Gardens at Uncanoonuc were absolutely spectacular. We held a smaller wedding under the large tent at the beginning of June and even the rain and cold couldn't keep people from having the best time. We got so many compliments on the stunning gardens, organization, and yes, bathrooms! The staff were also really professional, responsive, and helped us put together a great event. The price was right too, with everything that came with the package. I highly recommend them for your wedding or event!

July 2023

From our first visit a year ago all the way to our wedding day on July 21st 2023 the entire team at the gardens were absolutely wonderful. They are incredibly accommodating, knowledgeable, friendly, professional and fun! We could not have asked for a more perfect day that was made possible by all their recommendations, beautiful grounds, and fantastic staff. With the help of Tom and his lovely wife Lindsey, they made our perfect thunder stormy ceremony happen! This venue is out of a fairytale. 1000% recommend!

August 2023

Back in February, the staff from The Gardens at Uncanoonuc hosted our wedding reception, following our elopement. We truly cannot even express how amazing the experience was from beginning to end. In fact, we never wanted it to end it was so fun! Lisa, Lisa, Tom and their entire team were there every step of the way offering their support and expertise... whether it be relative to vendors, timeline or creative ideas (this team is *top notch* when it comes to design and creativity!), that ultimately made the day more special and memorable than we could have imagined on our own. And most of all... stress free! They had answers and suggestions for everything. We cannot pick out one thing where there could have been room for improvement. Every team member from The Gardens at Uncanoonuc was professional, down to earth and just amazing to work with, not to mention all of the vendors that brought our reception to life, that came at their recommendation. They set the bar high! We feel like they all cared so much as if it were their own event they were planning. Every step of the way we were blown away at the attention to detail and how on top of things they were. We would, without question, recommend the team from Gardens at Uncanoonuc!

August 2023

The Gardens at Uncanoonuc Mountain was the first venue we visited when starting our wedding planning. Though it was in the winter and we could not get the full picture of the venue, Lisa M. provided us with a strong visual through her photos and explanations. We left feeling so excited and at ease that we cancelled all of our other venue visits on the way home! Following this, for the next year and a half the staff was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful when it came to our planning. As we got closer, we had the wonderful opportunity to work with Tom H. as our Event Manager. His professionalism and great personality resonated well with us, leaving us stress free and confident leading up to our big day. Tom and the rest of the staff ensured that our big day was a huge success and for that, we could not be more grateful for all of their support and hard work! Both we and our guests were so impressed by all that The Gardens had to offer, we cannot recommend them enough!

September 2023

We were the first marriage of the 2022 season, April 30th! The gardens were absolutely amazing to work with! Our event manager Victoria was extremely nice, organized, and punctual. She made sure everything went smoothly and everything I requested was taken care of! The gardens were also very flexible when we needed to add or remove services, increase our guest count, and change any small details regarding the day. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and we received many compliments on how unique, memorable, and beautiful the venue was.

April 2020

My daughter had her wedding here today and I honestly cannot recommend this place more highly. It is so beautiful and the staff is incredible. Tom, the Event Coordinator is fabulous. If you are looking for the perfect place for your special day, this is it.
