Once our wedding day finally came we were so pleased with everything at the Dekoven Center. Although we were planning on an outdoor ceremony, with the rain we ended up moving it inside and we were not disappointed. Adam was awesome to work with. He was on his game, had everything ready for us, was very accommodating and overall it couldn't have gone better. The Great Hall was the perfect place for our reception. Just the right size for our 100 guests!

​I have always loved The DeKoven Center grounds - it is a beautiful place!! In fact, I love it so much that last month we had our wedding ceremony there. Throughout the process of planning the wedding everyone at DeKoven Center's wedding team was wonderful. They were very easy to communicate with via email and super responsive! They were very accommodating with all of my questions and requests. The day of the wedding everything was beautiful and went smoothly! We got married out in the courtyard and the chairs were set up by DeKoven Center beforehand for us. The only negative I have is that there were a TON of bees/wasps surrounding us as we did the ceremony (by the gates where the flowers are). I highly recommend spraying to prevent the bees from going to that area. It was very distracting because there were SO many of them. That was a minor issue though and everything else was amazing!! Highly recommend getting married here! Shout out to Adam Koenig, Amanda Tutas, and Samantha Lauf for all their help!

We had an absolutely wonderful wedding day at the DeKoven Center. Leading up to the day, the staff was constantly helpful and responsive. They coordinated with all of our other vendors making the day seamless. The outdoor wedding ceremony location was beautiful. Our guests couldn't stop telling us how perfect it was. And of course the Great Hall is an incredible space, warm and inviting, but also elegant and beautiful. We cannot recommend this venue highly enough.
