The staff at the Garden were helpful and accommodating as we planned. The setting was just perfect, and we can't believe how well everything turned out.

Couldn’t of been happier with the venue. This was the first and only place we looked. After the tour and a walk around the garden we knew this was the place. Beautiful pictures despite the chinnese lantern festival going on.

I did my wedding there and it was amazing! The guests were happy and I felt very comfortable in the bridal suite. My only complaints about the gardens was one of the staff members I was working with I didn't hit off with right away. She seemed out of it, and at moments as a...

Absolutely the most beautiful place to get married!!

I was highly considering Daniel Stowe for my wedding. We booked a tour about a week in advance and I was really looking forward to seeing the venue. The tour was extremely rushed, leaving half of my family including elderly grandmother behind. My family did not get to experience... Read More the whole tour because we were running through the areas where we could have the ceremony. I was taken through a few different areas but most of them I couldn't have my reception at because of the guest count. After the tour, they took us to an office. I assumed the employee would sit us down, go over pricing and answer any questions. That did not happen. She put us in the office and said "you can look at all of the books here and if you have any questions you can email me." I was so disappointed in the tour and this venue! I felt like we were so rushed and the employee was unprofessional. It was between Daniel Stowe and one other venue. Because of the tour, I chose the other venue.

I cannot say enough good things about this wedding venue. It made my wedding a dream come true. It was 4-5 hours away from home but it was worth the drive because the place is beautiful.

Venue was beautiful at any time of the year. Staff was friendly. No overall issues except we did have an indoor wedding and we booked the venue well over a year in advance. When it came down to the day of rehearsal, there were displays from a previous even set up and we were... Read More told then (not in advance) that they wouldn't be able to move the particular displays. Luckily, the displays incorporated my wedding colors.

I recently got married at Daniel Stowe, and I couldn't possibly imagine a better place. Gail and Courtney are wonderful to work with. They're very responsive and helpful with questions about the venue itself and even just with general recommendations. The gardens are... Read More stunningly beautiful for an outdoor ceremony, but even if the weather doesn't work out, the Great Hall is lovely for the ceremony. Definitely tell your guests to check out the Orchid Conservatory! The point is that choosing to have my wedding at the garden was the best decision (other than my husband!) that I made about my wedding day. It was just perfect!

Best Venue in Charlotte area

DSBG was an excellent venue in every aspect. My husband and I were married in the White Garden (which is absolutely stunning, especially in the Spring and Summer!) and had our reception in the Great Hall. It was extremely convenient to have everything in one place with the... Read More option of an indoor reception to escape the summer heat! DSBG is a little far from downtown Charlotte, but well worth the drive! The staff at DSBG was very kind, helpful, and professional. Their event coordinator, Gail Allen, was attentive and always available to answer our questions. She shared the garden's recommended vendor list which we used for almost every aspect of our wedding- made planning a lot easier! Our guests RAVED about how beautiful the venue was. It started pouring down rain immediately after our ceremony, moving the cocktail hour inside, but everything was so beautiful that no one even cared! The staff made the transition effortless for us. Definitely one of the best venues in the Charlotte area - highly recommend!

During our initial visit we met with Gail, who has to be one of the nicest people on earth! She showed us the gardens & walked us through all the details. It was love at first sight! I knew after minutes of walking the gardens that this was the place! Not only were the gardens so beautiful, it also featured exhibits as well. My wedding day was on August 31,2014 in the White Garden. The reception was held in the Great Hall. We additionally had access to the entire gardens with our package & they had a beautiful Zimbabwe exhibit displayed during the month of August! My wedding day could not have been more perfect! Courtney & Gail made sure that all of our needs were met from beginning to end. Getting married at Daniel Stowe was such a blessing. My family & friends can't stop talking about how beautiful the gardens were. DSBG is a true treasure! Thank you so much again to Gail, Courtney, & Donald with Best Impressions. You all made my wedding day so special & memorable! This was one of the best days of my life & I owe it all to God for leading me to Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden! -Neda Williams-

Daniel Stowe was a great venue to work with. Gail Allen was our Event Coordinator and she was AMAZING!! She was so helpful and responsive in answering the questions I had during the entire wedding planning process. Her customer service was top notch! She provided suggestions...

She really became a part of our family because she was so caring and involved from top to bottom. :) I got engaged at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden last summer and I met Gail while we were there. Daniel Stowe is a stunning venue. We received so much feedback from our guests about how beautiful everything was. We had our ceremony outside in the Four Seasons Garden and we booked the entire facility for our wedding. Our guests were able to tour the entire garden - including the White Garden, the Crepe Myrtle Grove, and the Orchid Conservatory. DSBG is an awesome venue to work with and everything flowed seamlessly. They have exclusive vendors that they use for catering/rentals and it makes your wedding day go so smoothly. They are truly one of the best wedding venues in this area.

FIrst Class Wedding

Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens. The very first day I visited the Gardens I knew it was the place I was going to be married. It was our first marriage and I wanted everything I ever dreamed of and I wanted It to be perfect. The Gardens and the staff exceeded all my wishes.... Read More It has acres of gardens and every flower you can imagine. It also has some gorgeous water fountains that make for some romantic pictures. We had a butterfly release at the end of the ceremony. The guest were surprised and thought It was amazing to see in the gardens. Our reception was held in “The Great Hall”. This room is stunning with a Dome ceiling which we had the decorator hang with tangerine ceiling drapes. Best Impressions, the catering company, was more than I could hope for. Every dish was delicious. The set up of the different stations was drenched with mouth watering dishes. I must say every bride is going to worry about everything taking place on wedding day. But believe me When I say, you honestly have no worries at Daniel Stowe. The caterer, the decorator, the florist, the DJ, the photographer, the officiant , the coordinator, each and every one did their part and more. I could not be more pleased about my wedding day. If you want a First Class Wedding this is the place.

This place is incredibly classy, but also down to earth and non-traditional. Its perfect for outdoor weddings, and also has a great indoor space. Keep in mind that they wont let you throw rice or flowers, but that's just a small thing.
