A celebration of life is when people come together to honor the unique life of the deceased. To make the planning process as simple as possible, we provide all-inclusive packages. If you would prefer to handle the catering and other arrangements yourself, you can simply rent a venue instead.

All-Inclusive Celebration of Life Packages

We now provide all-inclusive packages so you can easily create a beautiful occasion while focusing on what matters.

Each package includes:

  • Five hours of access to a reception venue and a ceremony site;
  • Tables and chairs;
  • Parking;
  • Access to acres of peaceful, landscaped gardens;
  • Catering and catering staff (choose from a curated menu of small plates, sandwiches, and entrées);
  • Linen Service (restaurant-quality tablecloths and napkins in a variety of colors).

Optional add-ons include:

  • Additional hours;
  • Wine, beer, and spirits;
  • Wireless microphone with a stand, receiver, and speaker.

Package Pricing:

Pricing for celebration of life packages varies by number of guests, food and beverage selections, and add-ons. You can easily calculate the total price using the online planning form.

To plan your event:

Fill out the online planning form, and a Hudson Gardens representative will promptly confirm the details with you. Please note that we require at least ten days notice for celebration of life packages.

Patrons can solely rent a venue and arrange food and beverages themselves. However, all events that serve food, wine, beer, or spirts at Hudson Gardens must use one of the six caterers from our list.
