Samantha and Mandy are very helpful and quick to response to any and all questions you have. I wasn't able to book DeKoven due to some family issues and the wedding needing to be a certain date, but I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for elegant ceremony or reception venue.

We had our entire wedding at The DeKoven Center and we are so glad we did! We could not have asked for a better place and for better service! The staff was very quick at answering any questions we had and always responded with detailed answers. They provide you with a day of coordinator which helps you out A LOT. If we could do our wedding day over again, we would 100% use The DeKoven Center again!

We held our ceremony at the St. John's Chapel at the DeKoven Center. It was an absolutely beautiful location to get married, and we were lucky to be able to take pictures outside on the grounds as well. All staff we worked with were extremely responsive and helpful from the moment we first looked at the space to the end of our wedding day. We also really appreciated having the ability to bring in our own officiant and musicians without qualification. Overall a great experience!

My wedding photos looked like I was straight out of England. The setting is unique and absolutely gorgeous. I was married at the gates outside the chapel. I have received so many compliments on the venue. If I had the chance to do my big day over, I would book my wedding here again and again and AGAIN. Mandy and Samantha are so sweet and easy to work with. I felt I got a fantastic deal on the price.

The staff really helped the day of the event go off without a hitch. I thought it was pricey but the off season discount made it worth it.

Samantha was extremely helpful and responsive, and the DeKoven Center was a beautiful setting for our wedding! We didn't love the catering options we had through the DeKoven (the one we wanted was already booked the day of our wedding), and thought our food ended up being just ok. The on-site staff were very helpful setting up the tables, tablecloths, answering questions, and coordinating the flow of the day. It really felt that they wanted to make happen whatever we desired - not like other venues we looked at that we had to fit our vision into preset "options".

Everyone at the Dekoven Center did a wonderful job helping us prepare for our wedding. They were more than willing to accomodate any needs to make our day what we wanted. The grounds were beautiful with all the flowers on the day of. They had everything prepped on time and everything ran smoothly the day of. Samantha was a big help leading up to the event. Alexandra did a fantastic job the day of. The new bar staff did a great job keeping up with the crowd. The guests at our wedding could not stop talking about the beautiful venue. I would definately recommend this venue.
