I truly can’t imagine my wife and I having chosen a more perfect wedding venue. First, the staff: Danielle was a dream to work with! She was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had. My wedding coordinator is a perfectionist (former caterer and owner of a bed & breakfast), and she looked at me after seeing the venue and meeting Danielle and said, “She has her $#&* together!” I couldn’t have summed it up any better. There’s pretty much not a scenario that you can come up with that Danielle hasn’t already dealt with and has a solution for. Your wedding day is in good hands with her!Sent on 05/30/2016
Next, the house and gardens: they’re gorgeous! One of my guests noted that she loved how many “spaces” there are—inside and out. Between having the ceremony in the garden, cocktail hour on the back lawn, dinner and dancing under the tent, bridal party and couple introductions on the front lawn and balcony, food in the house, and our first dance on the patio, I felt like everyone got a chance to experience the full beauty of the house and the gardens. I know our guests felt like they spent a very special evening in a very special place.
Third, the value: lots of amenities are included! In as much as possible, we were hoping for a one-stop shop sort of venue. We encountered lots of venues that required us to rent our own tables and chairs as well as a tent for rain back-up. All of that is included at Duncan Estate. The only things we had to provide were linens, decorations, and food. That greatly reduced the hassle and expense on our part.
Weddings inherently come with lots of stress, but I'm certain ours was greatly reduced because we chose to have it at this amazing venue!

The perfect venue for so many reasons
We initially chose Duncan Estate because of the price and the beauty of the venue. They did so much for such a reasonable price. However, the true value was not obvious until later. I had never been to a traditional wedding so planning one was an interesting process, but Danielle was amazing. She comes prepared to answer all of your questions and to recommend amazing vendors. Her required planning meeting was a life saver because Jessica helped organize the whole day and presented questions I did not even know I need to ask. On the day of, Liz was beyond helpful. She helped fix a bridesmaid's dress, made sure the boutonniere made it on my husband and my father, as well as so much more. I would book with them again and again. In fact, my matron of honor is hoping to renew her vows in the future, and she told me that she is now sincerely considering Duncan Estate because of how they helped with my wedding.Sent on 05/22/2019

Above and beyond staff-Liz and Shawn
I attended/worked a wedding this past weekend and despite the In climate weather (rainy), the wedding went well and was beautiful .Sent on 05/13/2019
Liz and Shawn were very involved before, during and afterward working to put everything together, creating a plan for the rainy weather and seeing that all needs were met for the perfect day. Placing sand in muddy walk areas, removing water off the reception floor from the down pouring rain and always seeing that everything was going just fine. Such a pleasure to work with Liz and Shawn and knowing that they truly cared for their clients and guests.

Duncan Estate is the perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding! Danielle and her team are so accommodating and helpful. Have a garden wedding and then dance the night away under the tent. Great venue & great team!
Danielle was such a joy to work with for my May 10th wedding. She is very knowledgable and professional. I will definitely recommend her venue for future brides!
