Testimonials

"On behalf of my family, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to all members of the Butterfly Conservatory team that assisted in preparing yesterday’s event and a special shout out to Rachel who did an outstanding job in executing our plans! The room was bright and sunny and everything was set up so nicely. The array of food and beverages were enjoyed by everyone and the left overs were conveniently packed up for us to take. Our friends and family found the Conservatory to be an uplifting place in which to hold our mother’s Celebration of Life get together – we spent the afternoon sharing memories and stories and several of our guests thoroughly enjoyed going through the Conservatory. Again, thank you to everyone for all of their efforts and for sharing such a magical place with us all!"
