  • When we visited DSB last September we knew immediately that it would be the venue for our wedding. The gardens are absolutely beautiful, the staff is superior and the the 2 vendors we used for catering and rental were top notch. We had planned to get married in the White Garden however the weather did not cooperate with us that day therefore we had to move the ceremony inside the Great Hall, however it turned out just as beautiful and the guests were very impressed. I would highly recommend DSB to any bride/groom that is looking for a quaint, reasonably priced venue for their wedding.

  • 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 for different vendors to use and genuinely cared about making sure our wedding day was flawless and special. 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 seam...

  • This is an amazing venue for a wedding. In fact, we booked the venue for our wedding without even seeing the place (since we were out of state when planning) and, thankfully, all the previous reviews on Weddingwire were accurate. We got married in the off-season, so the price was a lot better. If you don't have tons of money to spend on a wedding but are flexible with the date, consider getting married here in the off-season. The gardens are beautiful and the Great Hall is perfect for the reception. Gail, the events coordinator, is great to work with. She will make sure that everything is in order for your wedding day. Best Impressions handles all of the catering at this venue. They are very professional and the food was great. I didn't compare them with any other vendors, but the pricing seemed fair. Creative Solutions handles pretty much everything else (lighting, chairs, tables, etc.) They are somewhat pricey, but they are also professional and fast. Overall, we were... Read more

  • As a designer with experience in event design I have worked with numerous venues; Daniel Stowe Gardens and their staff FAR EXCEEDED all! They are professional, they are prompt and thorough with communication and the staff is a joy to work with. The Gardens are lovely, of course. The facility is beautiful, clean and efficient. The staff accomplishes all they promise. This particular wedding was for my son and his wife...their wedding was the last of 3 for our family and as the ''Mother-of" I could not have been more pleased. From initial inquiry to take-down after the festivities, working with this venue was a blessing.

  • The Gardens did an amazing job helping me with my wedding. Not only is the venue gorgeous, but the people who I got to work with are absolutely fantastic. Jenna Schmitt was great and always willing to help in any way she could. She also was very quick to respond to e-mails and answer any questions that I may have had. I would not have changed them or the venue for the world. Everything was beautiful and everyone was so nice. Definitely recommend to any of my friends who may get married in the future!! Great work! :)

  • Daniel Stowe was the perfect place to get married. Everyone will not stop talking about how amazing the gardens were. I worked with Jenna Schmidt and she was incredible. She made me feel so comfortable and was a pleasure to work with. I promise that if you choose to get married here, you will not be disappointed.

  • DSBG was our number one choice for our reception venue. We worked with Gail Allen and she was fantastic. So quick to respond to our questions and so patient with us as we planned our big day. The value in booking the gardens is obvious, your guests will love the scenery and it adds even more romance to your big day. The staff truly makes you feel special and works with utmost professionalism. Also, when you book with the Garden your family gets a yearlong membership to Daniel Stowe. It's one of our favorite places to visit already and now we can go back and reminiscence about our perfect day!

  • Daniel Stowe is absolutely beautiful! We knew we didn't want a traditional church wedding and didn't really like the 'mansion' type houses that are popular now, so the Garden was absolutely perfect for us! We originally planned to have everything outside in different areas of the Garden, but the weather had different ideas for us...we ended up moving the ceremony and reception inside, and it was still gorgeous. The rain let up enough so that we could still take most of our pictures throughout the grounds, and they came out absolutely amazing! All of the staff involved with the planning process and the day of our wedding were so professional and helpful. The different packages available really let you customize your special day however you would like, using as little or as much of the Garden as you need! You do have to use their preferred vendor, Best Impressions, for catering and rentals, but don't let that deter you - they are absolutely amazing as well! We could not have been happier... Read more

  • Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is a beautiful venue to hold a wedding and/or reception. We held our daughter's wedding reception there. We found the event coordinator easy to work with and willing to help however she could. Since this is a business and is open to the public until 5, vendors cannot begin setting up until 4:00. That means if you have a 4:00 wedding, you won't be able to do any of the decorating yourself. You'll need to deligate that to someone else. Our wedding was at 4, and the guests could go ahead to Stowe's and tour the gardens if they so desired once the wedding was over. This allowed time for the caterer, florist, photobooth, and our personal friend to set up everything. You have the place until 11, at which time everything must be out of the place. So, in order to give us enough time to allow for clean up, the bride and groom exited around 9:30. It is a bit pricey, but for other places of this caliber, the price was competitive. Overall, we had a wonderful receptio... Read more

  • My first visit to DSBG was almost 20 years ago when I moved to Charlotte, NC. I fell in love with the gardens and never dreamed I would one day marry there! Gail Allen was terrific to deal with, along with the rest of the staff. Every email I sent was answered within 24 hours. It was an absolutely perfect evening for an early fall wedding (9.27.14) and it will forever be my favorite place in Belmont, NC!!

  • The gardens are absolutely beautiful and very well maintained. Our ceremony in the white garden was just perfect. As far as the logistics go, the garden is very strict with their policy of arriving no earlier than 2 hours before your event which makes it impossible to get ready on site. Something to consider for getting ready pictures, touch ups, etc. My biggest complaint is the planner they recommended, Dottie Maloy. She was rude and did an awful job coordinating our reception. I would NOT recommend using her. Find your own planner.

  • The Gardens are beautiful and they really worked with us to make sure we had everything we wanted. I definitely reccommend getting the whole place if you're planning for a large group - and take advantage of all the space!

  • My husband and I could not think of a more beautiful place to have our wedding ceremony and reception. The staff is kind, responsive and incredibly patient. Our experience at Daniel Stowe was nothing less than exceptional. If you are interested in impressing your guests and having a stunning venue with wonderful service, this place is it!

  • We visited Daniel Stowe and fell in love with the beautiful location. Our wedding was an evening event and it was wonderful to be able to have both our ceremony and reception at the same location! The major issue we found out about having a wedding at Daniel Stowe is that they are very strict on set up times for vendors. They only allow for two hour set up before the wedding. We did not know this until we signed the contract. Both my husband and I were not allowed to show up until 4PM either to get ready so it did make things a little hectic on the day. Luckily, our vendors and wedding planner were all well versed in working at faster set up. Everything went flawlessly and the surrounding area was beautiful! We had a fantastic wedding and the location was fabulous! We are definitely happy with the overall result!
