    Beautiful and surrounded by Nature

    Loved our venue! Beautiful space, we hardly had to decorate! Everyone was so nice and prompt to answer my questions. They are flexible to last minute changes. You're only paying for the actual space, no vendors are included at all. Instead, they had a list of verified vendors that you can choose to be there. If you bring in other vendors, they have to be approved by the gardens. Because of this, we exceeded our budget but it was worth it. Lastly, if you want a bar, you have to use their staff, which were awesome! Overall, great venue for any occasion. We did it all in 3 months and it was perfect!

    Terrific Wedding Venue

    My wife and I booked the venue is 2019 to have our wedding in October 2020. They were very flexible and accommodating during the height of the pandemic, making it easy to re-schedule for November 2021. We felt like we were in great hands with Patrick and Ali through the whole process. We would not hesitate to recommend DBG to anyone else looking for a beautiful venue.

    Absolutely perfect!

    The garden was the perfect setting for our small wedding! The signs made it easy for our guests to find our venue and everything was well kept and looked lovely. Ali was incredibly responsive and patient through out the whole process and we're so pleased with how everything turned out. Would absolutely recommend hosting an event at TDB!
