    Delightful Durham Springs

    As a wedding and event planner I'm always looking for a unique and beautiful venues. Durham Springs checked all my boxes and more! Owners, Dan and Ian, have taken this dated property and transformed it into my absolute go-to for events, especially weddings. The grounds are lovely with ponds, swaying grasses and rolling hills. I absolutely love the flexibility of the ballroom. Beautiful views, flexible lighting, high ceilings, tons of natural light, neutral floors, walls and chairs make decor a joy. You can create any vibe you want in this space with ease.
    Dan was lovely to work with and exceedingly patient in providing many changes in floorpan due to the never ending Covid issues. He was also genuinely excited for my bride and groom and took joy in seeing their vision come to light. Many other venues are quick to tell you all the things you cannot do. Dan made sure that our requests came to life, and then some! His creativity was much appreciated.
    The food was delicious and served in a lovely, imaginative manner. William, staff captain, kept the wait staff running efficiently throughout the evening and Melissa, Durham's on-site event coordinator was responsive throughout, taking special care of several specific needs that we had for the day.
    Needless to say, my bride and groom were thrilled with choosing Durham Springs for their VERY SPECIAL day!

    Best Decision!

    We had a short time frame and small budget and Tiffany was amazing with availability, decor options, and all of the resources we had available to us. Helping us come up with the menu and floor plan as well as being super flexible with our budget. What a great venue, everyone said so many great things and we couldn't have been happier with our decision! Thank you so much to the team at Durham Springs and to Tiffany who made sure everything went smoothly and that we were well taken care of the entire night.

    You found the best place!

    If you are looking for a wedding venue (or even a place to stop in for dinner), you can stop your search because you’ve found the perfect place. My husband and I got married here in August 2019 and couldn’t have had a more fabulous wedding day or planning process.

    We were treated like gold from our initial email contact up until and after our wedding day. The space is so beautiful that it speaks for itself; rolling hills surrounding it with a natural spring that runs through the building. The renovations that Dan and Ian did are absolutely breathtaking. There is no ugly carpet like many wedding venues have and no tackiness about the chandeliers (two of my biggest pet peeves at other spots)… just absolute understated elegance EVERYWHERE. You can dress up the venue as little or as much as you’d like; it will look fabulous either way. My husband and I felt we did not need much as far as bringing in flowers/decorations and just let the venue’s beauty shine through on its own. Many of our guests commented on how lovely the setting was. The lighting and sound system that Dan/Ian had installed in the main room were also top notch. Our band was worried about hooking up to house sound, but this was not an issue at all just in case others have this reservation. The flexibility that they offered was also incredible; we were able to call indoor vs. outdoor ceremony on the morning of our wedding day. The day before it looked like 50 percent chance of rain, but as of that morning, there were no drops to be seen on the forecast and we were able to execute our dream of having our ceremony on the hilltop overlooking the pond. This was such a gift; no other venue that we toured allowed a game-time decision for ceremony location (and no other venue had such a good rain back-up plan!!)

    In addition to its pleasing esthetics, Durham Springs KILLED it with our food/drink items. Our guests were RAVING about how delicious everything was. We were lucky enough to customize our menu and watch the chef bring our vision to life: think miniature cheesesteaks and chilled cucumber/mint soup shooters at our request. Also, the “beet tartare” was fantastic. The service staff was also all incredibly courteous and fun; we had them join us on the dance floor for our last song and it was such good energy all around.

    Enough good things could never be said about our wedding coordinator, Kat Persing. She was an absolute gift for us during our whole planning process and especially on our wedding day. My husband and I were a little type A as far as planning the details; we had some trouble relinquishing control (a personal problem unrelated to Kat haha), but Kat was super patient with us and graciously took all of our phone calls/emails and went with all of our changes/crazy ideas. She executed all of our visions perfectly and kept us totally calm on our day. The timing of everything was spot on and she made us our own plates to insure that we ate and got to enjoy our food. She continually checked in with us throughout the day and was the most fantastic point person I ever could have imagined. (We love you Kat!!)

    So, in summary, if you are sick of looking at all of the cookie cutter wedding venues like my husband and I were (aka you pick one package out of 3 options as far as menu/ceremony/etc options and have no originality), pick Durham Springs for your venue instead. You will not be disappointed. They let you bring any vision that you have to life, no matter how big or small. You can design your own wedding with the help of their professional team supporting you. Our guests all kept saying how “us” the wedding was; that wouldn’t have been able to shine through at any other venue we toured.

    The best part of the whole thing? Durham Springs also has a restaurant where we can return for dinner anytime we’d like. This place is so special to us and we are ecstatic that we found it. Many good memories to come with them!!
