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".

Awesome experience from day one!
The staff at the gardens was amazing and made the planning process very easy. The venue was absolutely beautiful! Our wedding guests are still commenting on how amazing the entire experience was for them. I highly recommend DBG to anyone! It was magical!Sent on 12/05/2018

Beautiful and Special
It was a lot of work compared to the all inclusive venues as we need to work with vendors and rentals on our own, but we have no regrets about our decision to have our wedding at the DBG because it was so perfect! The Gardens are beautiful and filled with plants and scenery only can be seen in the Southwest. Many of our guests were from out of state and they were amazed at the beauty of nature here. The event managers of the DBG, Patrick and Katelyn, were super helpful and organized about everything.
Our ceremony and reception were hold at the Steele Herb Garden, a small outdoor venue which was perfect for our small and intimate wedding. I highly recommend it if you plan to have a small wedding too (around or less than 50 guests) and loves nature.
The Garden is a gorgeous place with absolutely unique views and landscapes. No other place in the valley looks like the Botanical Garden!
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.
