Stunning wedding venue
I am SO happy we chose the DBG for our wedding venue! We were married in mid-August, and even though it was fairly toasty, our photos were absolutely breathtaking! The beauty of the gardens makes for a stunning and magical wedding day experience. The indoor reception hall was also quite lovely, and we couldn't have been happier. Besides the beauty of the gardens, we had a great experience working with Patrick! He was so prompt with communication, and helped us out so much, especially when we had to postpone our wedding. I couldn't imagine a more beautiful place to get married in Phoenix, and the prices are also very reasonable. Highly recommend!!Sent on 08/25/2020
Desert Botanical Garden's reply:Lorraine - It was such a pleasure working with both of you. During such a crazy time in history, you and Tim were able to remove the outside world and celebrate your love. It was a beautiful moment. Thank you for allowing me to be a small party of it. All my best, Patrick.

dream wedding venue
We held our wedding at the Webster Center at DBG, with our ceremony/reception on the Ullman Terrace and our cocktail hour on Eliot Patio. It is truly a stunning venue space and easy to adapt to your wedding vision. Katelyn and Patrick, and the entire DBG team, were so professional and easy to work with. With so many of our friends and family traveling to Arizona for our wedding, it was really special to show them a unique desert space. We cannot recommend it highly enough!Sent on 03/15/2020
Desert Botanical Garden's reply:Laura and Ian - I hope you are both doing well. Thank you for your kind words. Katelyn and I both wish you joy and love.

The MOST beautiful venue!!
We did a ceremony only wedding at the Desert Botanical Garden Amphitheater. This was the perfect space for us so that we could:
1) save on chair rentals (built in seating)
2) did not have to spend much on florals (the gardens speak for themselves) and
3) did not have to find a second location for pictures (again the garden is gorgeous!!)
4) Our guests received free entry to the garden, a unique activity during "cocktail hour"
As an added benefit of booking with Desert Botanical Garden you get to work with Patrick the event coordinator. We cannot say enough good things about him! He is fun, friendly, responsive, and so freakin good at his job. You can tell weddings/events are his passion and he does them so well. Patrick was an integral piece of making our day so perfect!
We would recommend Desert Botanical Garden to anyone considering an outdoor wedding in Arizona!Sent on 10/19/2020
Desert Botanical Garden's reply:Cassandra I am speechless, and that is hard to do. Your description of the an Amphitheater wedding is perfect, just like your wedding was. It was a pleasure to work with Edward and you. Please stay in touch, and I can't wait to see the photos. To a lifetime of happiness and love. Patrick

Beautiful venue and lots of amazing spaces for whatever sort of vision and feel you'd prefer. Great support systems and one-of-a-kind beauty.
The Desert Botanical Garden is a wonderful place for any event. They have many different options within the garden to select from and they are all beautiful. We enjoy working with their team very time we visit.
