    Perfect Wedding

    John and I celebrated our wedding at The Dunlavy on September 14th, it was simply and absolutely PERFECT!!! Both the ceremony on the back patio and the reception in the gorgeous chandelier-lighted glass castle were held at The Dunlavy.
    We loved everything: the decor, tables, food, service (excellent), incredible coordination, security!! Our coordinator Caroline Johnson truly nailed everything! Her suggestions were spot-on, her professionalism, friendliness, knowledge, attitude, and thoughtfulness are exemplary.
    We had great fun and knew we could count on her and her team, we completely enjoyed our special day stress-free. We and our guest had so much fun. Each of our 100 guests said that it was the most enjoyable and beautiful wedding they had ever attended.
    Caroline had a very thoughtful and touching gesture that surprised us when we got in our limo to leave the venue, a doggy bag :)
    We were lucky to work with amazing professionals, all were fabulous.
    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to team Dunlavy and special kudos to Caroline!!

    Best Wedding Ever!

    The Dunlavy hosted our wedding on May 31st and they could not have done a better job. The venue itself is gorgeous but the staff made our event a night to remember! The food was amazing, the bartenders kept drinks flowing, and there was never a glass or plate left on a table. We heard from multiple guests that our wedding was, "The best wedding we have ever been to" - What more could we ask for?!? Our coordinator from The Dunlavy, Caroline, and the event manager, Samantha, worked with our vendors (florist, DJ, photographer, photo booth) and staff to plan everything from our ceremony on the patio, to the cocktail hour, food stations, toasts, dancing, and our exit with the rest of The Dunlavy staff. Caroline, Samantha, and everyone at The Dunlavy made us feel so special and treated our event as if it were their own. Because of their hard work and planing on the front end all we had to do the night of our wedding was enjoy! Our wedding was perfect and if we could do it all over again we would do it at The Dunlavy!

    March Wedding

    The Dunlavy was the absolute best wedding venue. Everything was perfect and the venue comes with a coordinator. Caroline Johnson was my event coordinator and she was exceptional. The venue needs little additional décor because it is already so beautiful. I had their in house pastry chef do my wedding cake, it was gorgeous and delicious.
