Booking our wedding at the Dane Estate was one of the best decisions we made. The interior of the Estate, where we held our ceremony and cocktail hour, is beautiful and feels spacious but still cozy and intimate at the same time. We held a tented reception on the lawn and couldn't believe how stunning the interior of the tent was. Our guests also really appreciated that there is plenty of free, convenient parking . Devanna was absolutely incredible to work with. She answered all of our questions promptly and courteously and made the planning process so much easier. As our day-of coordinator, Sarah was so helpful and helped the day run smoothly. The Dane Estate was the perfect venue for our day and we couldn't be happier with our wedding thereSent on 05/12/2020

5/5 Would Recommend for Any Formal Gathering
The Dane Estate was the perfect venue for our wedding. The place has such great ambiance and furnishing - it will look great even if you only add minimal decorations. The band said the acoustics in the ballroom were great as well. Devanna was incredible to work with!Sent on 10/18/2018

We had the most amazing wedding for our daughter at the Dane Estate. The venue is beautiful. Devanna and her staff were wonderful, seamlessly taking charge of everything so all we had to do was enjoy the day. The food is better than restaurant quality and service was impeccable. I would highly recommend this venue.Sent on 08/05/2018
