    Great people, Stunning Venue!

    We had our wedding reception at the DCA on June 15th, and I can't say enough about the venue and how perfectly our wedding night went. In the beginning, we found and wrote to the venue through the Knot, and Laura, the Event Coordinator, promptly responded and invited us for a tour. Once we visited the mansion, it was like love at first sight. The mansion is so cozy and charming. It has a lovely garden which is beautifully designed from top to toe. Everything about the venue was so positive and appealing. All in all, the venue was the first and the last place that we had a visit, and we directly booked the mansion without hesitation, which was one of the best decisions we have ever made. In our wedding night, our guests fell in love with the venue as well. We are still hearing great comments from families and friends about how everything was so perfect about our wedding. We had our ceremony and the cocktail in the garden, and the reception in the McKitterick Room. Everybody enjoyed the garden while they were sipping their drinks on a nice summer night, followed by dinner in the McKitterick Room. Everything went so smooth and pleasant.
    Beyond all, I would like to give a special thanks to Laura for her patience while I was bombarding her with questions. Until the wedding, my husband's and my work schedule were quite packed. Whenever I emailed her or requested for something, she was always nice and very responsive and never said no. Her help lifted a weight off our shoulders. Also, whenever we visited the DCA to plan the event, the Facilities Manager was so helpful as well. He kindly responded to what we have asked for. He greatly helped us make everything worry-free.
    Great people, great place. Thanks so much again to the DCA for making our special night as what we totally hoped for.

    DCA Meadowlands & Laura Boulton are spectacular

    We got married last weekend at the DCA and Laura Boulton was our wedding planner. It was the wedding of our dreams!
    The DCA house is beautiful, tastefully furnished, and private. The many rooms mean that the bridal suite, groom suite, ballroom, dining room, and separate sitting rooms are all in one place but also let your guests spread out.
    The formal garden is a showstopper and doesn't need any extra decoration to make a stunning ceremony backdrop.
    Our caterer thought the kitchen was extremely well equipped for a large wedding.
    Laura Boulton, the events coordinator, was our wedding planner and we cannot recommend her enough. She is kind, organized, and very knowledgeable. I don't know how we would have pulled it off without her!
    Finally, the DCA is so easy for guests to get to. It's a 5 min drive from the Darien train station, has tons of parking, and is near a number of large hotels in Norwalk.

    We just had our wedding at the DCA and I can't say enough good things about it. The grounds are gorgeous, the rooms are spacious and charming, and the staff is incredible. We ended up hiring their Catered Events Coordinator, Laura Boulton, as our day-of wedding coordinator, and she was an absolute MVP, liaising between all our vendors. She was so hands on and kind and organized, it was just a pleasure. She worked so hard to make sure that our vision (a low-key, backyard BBQ vibe) was executed) was realized. Some things to know about the venue--there are large, park-like grounds, a bird sanctuary, and an inner courtyard/garden with lovely plantings; the main reception room is air conditioned; the bathrooms are cute, the caterer's kitchen is large, there's AMPLE parking, and the venue itself comes with a number of tables, chairs, plates, etc. It's an amazing value and kind of a ridiculously good value for what you get.
