    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!

    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!

    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
