  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • I cannot think of a more beautiful place to get married!! I visited the site in early april and with each visit up until the wedding day 8/12 the scenery became more beautiful. Staff is professional and helpful in every way. They were always eager to answer any questions I had and responded in a timely manner! They also recommend other vendors, which made planning so much easier. They have a caterer and decorating company that you have to use, but they are also wonderful!! I would recommend getting married here to anyone who wants a beautiful wedding without breaking the bank!!! Love, Love, Love this place!!!

  • 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! :)

  • 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

  • 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...

  • 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. 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 h... Read more

  • 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.

  • After my fiance and I saw Daniel Stowe, we stopped looking for a ceremony/reception venue. This was it. The gardens are absolutely stunning, and all of our guests were completely wowed. It is pretty far away from Charlotte, so I would recommend a shuttle for out of town guests - that worked well for us. We used the white garden for the ceremony, the crape myrtle grove for the cocktail hour, and the large indoor space for the reception. It was perfect and the whole event went incredibly smoothly. The only thing to know is that you have to pick from a list of caterers and you only have one choice in rental company. It all worked out fine, but not super flexible. Also, you are limited in you can toss at the grand exit (no rice, petals, things like that).

  • 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!

  • Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is by far one of the most beautiful gardens in our area and we knew instantly that we wanted to have our daughter's wedding there. The venue was simply romantic and lovely and provided a beautiful background for the photographs and was enjoyed by all. But there are rules that you have to follow and vendors that you have to use so be sure to get all of the information. Having said that, the vendors were all excellent!
