    The Dunlavy is amazing, BUT...

    They are no longer accepting new contracts for weddings or private events as they will be starting to open for dinner service. I had just toured the venue and a week later they told me they wouldn't be accepting new contracts. Luckily I had decided to go in a different (less expensive) direction, otherwise I would have been devastated!

    The Dunlavy's reply:

    This was such a bittersweet decision for everyone! As we move towards this format change, we will be accepting contracts for events through March of 2020. We wish you the best for your special day!
