    Awesome venue!

    We had the wedding of our dreams here! They have tons of options for your ceremony location on their beautiful land and the reception tent is spacious and beautiful! The bridal quarters are also amazing and they work so well with the vendors to help make sure everything is set up the way you want it while also being able to help with recommendations along the way! Absolutely recommend Dara’s Garden and Dara and Kate were great!!
