    6 star Review for DBG and Patrick. Bravo

    My event at the Steele Herb Garden was GORGEOUS. Patrick was a DREAM to work with. Professional, courteous, gave amazing advice on vendors. I am extremely particular as I've planned many events, personally and professionally. THE DBG was the best. And it was budget conscious.

    Desert Botanical Garden's reply:

    Randi thank you for your kind words. Your event was outstanding. You took the Electric Desert theme to 100 in your decorating and choice of rentals. Standing ovation to you. It fills me with joy to know you are happy with how the event turned out. Thank you again.

    You can't beat the Desert Botanical Gardens for a wedding spot!

    My husband and I got married at the Steel Herb Garden and I couldn't rave about it enough. It was such a beautiful venue and it didn't really need any decorations since it is such a beautiful spot. It was a nice intimate area of the gardens and you can also see Camelback Mountain from the venue. Also, my guests were able to nip out for a little bit and enjoy the light show that the garden has going on right now. Katelyn and Patrick are both the wedding event coordinators for the DGB and they are both lovely people to work with. They were super friendly and accommodating! I had a lot of people come up to me and say that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to!

    Botanical Bliss

    Katelyn is a dream to work with. The garden is the most magical place to get married. The natural beauty requires ZERO additional decor. The staff at the garden make every part of the process easy, fun and special. The grounds are a photographers dream come true with lighting at sunset that will proudly be displayed in your photos for years to come. The fact that our out of town guests got to come to such a beautiful location and fully experience what Arizona has to offer was a complete joy. Both the bride and groom got a room to themselves for their bridal party to sit in prior to the ceremony which made it easy to store things and gather oneself before such a monumental moment. Guests of the garden were more than polite getting out of the way for photos etc. Love and support was felt every step of the way the day of. I can also share that the price for everything we got was TOTALLY worth it and well in line with our budget. They do have options for every budget which is refreshing compared to other venues in and around this area. A must add to your list of locations to check out as you consider where to say your "I do's".
