I loved getting married at the Davis Islands Garden Club! The view is amazing!! We got married in February and had the most perfect weather we could ask for! Michelle is the coordinator at The Davis Islands Garden Club and was very prompt at answering my emails or texts. This venue is pretty much a blank canvas for you to do whatever your heart desires! They have chairs you can rent, as well as drapery, pillows for the veranda, cushions for the veranda, and window decor. You don't have to use their stuff, you can bring in ANYTHING you want!! It was the perfect venue for our wedding day! Our guests loved how it was set up and enjoyed the water view. BEAUTIFUL and very REASONABLE pricing!!!

We had our reception at DIGC. Michelle was great and met with us on multiple occasions so we could measure something or just look around. The tables and chairs were set up just how we wanted. Beautiful waterfront location with indoor and outdoor options. You can use any vendors you want so it’s easily personalized. I highly recommend this venue!

Michelle was very professional and easy to contact with any questions I had regarding the DIGC for our daughters wedding. We only used the venue for the ceremony & a short cocktail hour and everything went smoothly! I loved that we could also rent furniture at very reasonable prices. The Gardens look beautiful in the photos and all the guests commented on such a picturesque venue. The only dampener on the day was the weather.

Davis Island Garden Club is simply amazing. You have endless possibilities here and can go wild with whatever vision you have for your celebration. After searching months for a venue we found DIGC and I fell in love immediately. Michelle was awesome and would always meet me whenever I needed to measure something, or just wanted to look around again. This venue is right on the water and so you can hold a formal black and white affair or be as casual as the beach. It truly was perfect!

I this venue after shopping for many by the water for my daughters wedding and boy! was I surprised with their fantastic service. The quality was beautiful, Extremely helpful and friendly team, especially Michelle! They produced everything we needed like tables and chairs, just like I wanted it.They had excellent communication. What a professional team I was extremely happy with this venue, and it started our wedding off like a fairytale! My guests raved about the location, they loved it! And the newlyweds head off in a boat from the venue sailing into the sunset. A perfect place for a wedding.

I could not have possibly picked a more beautiful venue in a more idyllic location for our wedding. Our guests could not stop talking about the beautiful grounds, the waterfront ceremony area, the patio, and the Garden Room (usually used for indoor receptions). The drapes and cushions made the reception area and patio look so rich and elegant, and the room was the perfect size for our dinner and reception (not too enormous, not too small).

Michelle, the events coordinator, was so incredibly helpful and has a warm, sweet personality that puts you at ease even in your most stressful moments. She was an excellent communicator, and always had helpful advice and information to share while we were hunting down our various vendors. She made sure the grounds were clean and beautiful the morning of, and she communicated with my wedding party (even taking the time to learn everyone's name) while we were all there together setting up the DIYs and seating.

I would recommend saving some money by booking it either during the "slow season", or on a Friday. We had a 5:30 ceremony on a Friday evening, and it worked out perfectly! We were so, so happy we chose the Davis Islands Garden Club.

We got married at Davis Island Garden Club, the only choice for us. DIGC was one of the only venues that allow you to bring in your own catering and booze, a real savings for us, and a great option for brides on a budget. Throughout the venue “shopping” experience I was flustered and annoyed at all of the hidden fees, as well as the high cost of having to not only rent a space, but use that space’s own catering company and/or own bar services. The prices were outrageous and at the end of the day, I’m mostly concerned with giving a great party and not so much about the allure in having a reception in a fancy-schmancy location.

Right on the water, and facing Harbour Island, Davis Island is a beauty. I love the large trees, the expansive patio, the big windows in the reception area, and the fact that it’s a blank slate, allowing us to really design the way that we want. Michelle James is amazing to work with, truly caring about the bride and groom and making everything so easy to understand and get in order. She is very available for questions, multiple tours of the place (as in my case, I am visual and had to view the space over and over again for decor inspiration), and more. Highly, highly recommend.
