The garden club was the first venue we visited and I fell in love. It was beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. The garden club is affordable and you get to choose all of your own vendors. Michelle James, the event manager, was always helpful and willing to answer any questions we had. We had so many compliments about our beautiful venue and I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

What an absolutely beautiful venue! It was absolutely perfect! Very spacious & provided the perfect setting. Michelle James, DIGC mgr., is super sweet, very flexible, professional, & very down to earth. If you're looking for an affordable venue for everything w/no strings attached, this is the place! You aren't tied to any venders, you can choose to provide your own food, bar tenders, cake, etc. Some beautiful decor can be supplied by Michelle for an addtl charge but all is very reasonably priced & worth every penny! My only minor complaint was that we were asked to lower the music about 30 min prior to the noise ordinance by a neighborhood guard. Not really a big deal, just a little annoying. Overall, I would recommend this venue a million times over. Made my wedding nothing short of stunning and beautiful! Perfect memories to last a lifetime! Thank you so much Michelle!

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.

I had my wedding at Davis Islands Garden Club on 10/24/14 for 125 people and it was just perfect. Michelle was easy to work with and the location couldn't be more beautiful. One of my favorite things about DIGC is that it's already so pretty you don't have to do too much else with decor. I received so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was. With the water, trees, and foliage making the backdrop you can get some great pictures!

We had the ceremony at the gazebo, cocktail hour on the back patio, dinner inside, dancing back on the patio, and then from 10-11pm (due to the noise ordinance) we went back inside for dancing. The inside isn't anything special. We did some uplighting and the drapes from the ceiling, but that was about it. We didn't feel like spending money on the inside since it was just for eating and (very) late night dancing. The back patio was great for dancing. Just string some lights for the ceiling with a few uplights and it's a great dance floor with plenty of room for the DJ table and bar.

Michelle was great to work with and very flexible with us. I highly recommend DIGC as a venue for your wedding or special event!

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.
