I could not have possibly picked a more beautiful venue in a more idyllic location for our wedding. Our guests could not stop talking about the beautiful grounds, the waterfront ceremony area, the patio, and the Garden Room (usually used for indoor receptions). The drapes and cushions made the reception area and patio look so rich and elegant, and the room was the perfect size for our dinner and reception (not too enormous, not too small).
Michelle, the events coordinator, was so incredibly helpful and has a warm, sweet personality that puts you at ease even in your most stressful moments. She was an excellent communicator, and always had helpful advice and information to share while we were hunting down our various vendors. She made sure the grounds were clean and beautiful the morning of, and she communicated with my wedding party (even taking the time to learn everyone's name) while we were all there together setting up the DIYs and seating.
I would recommend saving some money by booking it either during the "slow season", or on a Friday. We had a 5:30 ceremony on a Friday evening, and it worked out perfectly! We were so, so happy we chose the Davis Islands Garden Club.

Beautiful outdoor venue
I fell in love with the outside of this venue. It’s on the water and has so much greenery and florals. It was the perfect backdrop for my wedding. Only thing I suggest is they power wash the walkway to the gazebo more often, it gets stained/dirty easily.
Amber was always very responsive to calls/emails.

Such a beautiful venue for a DIY wedding!
Amber was great! She answered all our questions and was very helpful. This venue is so beautiful! It gives the option to have an indoor or outdoor wedding. We had planned for an all outdoor wedding but the rain came unexpectedly and we had to move it indoors but it was plenty of room either way. We had our ceremony outside by the gazebo and set the dance floor set up on the covered patio. This venue allows you to bring in all your own vendors including bar, food, decorations etc... We couldn't have been happier with our decision to use DIGC.
We have been working at this venue for years. It is a really nice venue to host a wedding or other event. Beautiful landscape right on the water. Check them out!
Davis Islands Garden Club is by far one of our favorite venues to work at. It offers both an amazing indoor as well as outdoor space. The outdoor space features mature trees and beautiful landscaping with a view of the water. There is a path that leads to a beautiful gazebo that is a great for a ceremony backdrop. The outdoor space is absolutely ideal for the type of lighting that we provide, and the options for decorating are endless. The indoor space is a blank canvas that can be customized to your style and vision. The venue coordinator, Michelle, is extremely helpful and is great to work with. Tampa Lights highly recommends that you check out the Davis Islands Garden Club when searching for your wedding or event venue!
Our DJ's always enjoy working at Davis Island Garden Club! Beautiful gazebo/garden wedding with nice reception space! And, you can't beat the South Tampa location!
