What a great experience! My husband and I recently got married here, and I don't know where to begin in explaining how wonderful Dara's Garden is. To start, the venue is absolutely gorgeous. We knew that when we booked it. What we didn't know was how wonderful the staff would be. They went above and beyond the typical venue duties. They were kind, professional, accommodating, and extremely helpful. Kate ensured the day was perfect! When starting to plan a wedding, you don't realize that the people you are working with make all the difference. I couldn't imagine going through the planning without them.
