I have not yet had my wedding. but I have to say how thrilled I am to be getting married here. The outdoor gazebo area is LOVELY and spacious, with a paved aisle and paved bridal party areas (so that heels don't dig into the ground). The BP areas are outside of the gazebo, so only the couple and officiant will be in the gazebo, which I think makes it much more intimate, even with everyone watching!
The indoor reception space is LOVELY. The bathrooms were beautiful and already supplied with baskets of convenient things. Leigh-Anne is amazing and helpful. They do EVERYTHING for you. They set up, do the linens, the food, the centerpieces. There is no nonsense here. Love it! Highly recommended.

Anne and Leigh Anne at Delightful Inspirations were a dream come true for a bride. They were the first venue we visited and the moment that Anne, the owner, came up and gave me a huge hug I knew this was the place. They were quick to respond to any questions or requestsI had, and I sure had A LOT! They were very patient during the whole planning process. I will admit that I am very demanding and controlling. I like things a certain way, but they were very flexible and made sure I was 100% happy with everything! I got to the venue the Monday before my Saturday wedding to drop all the decor off and start setting up. When I arrived, ALL of the tables and linens were already set up and Leigh Anne, my day of coordinator, said "ok, see you for the rehearsal." I looked at her as if she had two heads and asked, "don't you need me to set everything up?" and she said "Nope, I got this!" And when I walked in on Friday for the rehearsal, everything was done and GORGEOUS. She went ABOVE and beyond with everything I wanted and could ever imagine with my decor. It was the biggest weight off my shoulders. When I showed up the day of I was so worried about everything getting done in time but Leigh Anne was there, guiding me along, making sure we were served with drinks and snacks and made sure we stayed on track with time. Once the reception started Leigh Anne put together a plate for my new husband and I made sure that we took the time to sit down and eat and let me tell you, that food was AMAZING! I heard nothing but compliments about how everything looked and tasted. The day seemed to go perfectly. They made sure that I was happy and taken care of the whole night. Honestly, I could go on for days about how amazing this venue is. They made my day the best it could be. It truly was the happiest day of my life all thanks to them and this GORGEOUS venue!

I cannot recommend Anne and Leigh-Anne enough. We had my daughter’s wedding at Delightful Inspirations last weekend and it was everything we wished for. From the very beginning, Leigh-Anne and Anne made the wedding planning process a breeze. They were so easy to work with, they gave us great advice and helped in anyway they could - they went above and beyond to make sure that everything was perfect. From the decorations - inside and outside, to the food, to coordinating the different moments, they made sure everything went smoothly all weekend. And, since they are a full-service venue, we didn’t have to worry about meeting caterers, renting tables, linens, etc. and we were truly able to enjoy ourselves. We received so many compliments from family and friends about what a great time they had – all thanks to the wonderful staff at Delightful Inspirations!

I can't begin to tell you how thankful my wife and I are the we decided on delightful inspirations for our wedding. It was just what we wanted from the minute we saw it. A beautiful outside area with gazebo for the ceremony and a stunning inside area with plenty of room for our 125 guests to eat, drink, and dance! Anne and Leigh-Anne were so easy to work with. No matter what my bride wanted to do or change it was always followed with the response "no problem we will take care of it". They did an amazing job decorating the interior and exterior to exactly what my wife dreamed of. The food was amazing, so many of our guests were still commenting on it weeks later. The entire staff was so friendly and helpful it just made the entire experience amazing. Do yourself a favor and set up a meeting to visit, you will not be disappointed.

I can't say enough great things about Anne and Leigh-Anne as well as the rest of the staff at DI. My now husband and I got married there this past June and I can honestly say I don't believe I could have imagined getting married anywhere else. From the beginning they were so easy to work with and wanted to ensure that we had everything we wanted on our wedding day...and they went above and beyond to make that happen. Anytime I had a question or concern, they were always pleasant and attentive. Since this is basically a "one stop shop" the stress of wedding planning decreased significantly with not having to have so many different vendors. We had so much fun at our wedding and so did our guest...which is all we wanted! I've had so many people come up and comment about how much fun they had, how beautiful things were, amazing food and how smooth things went...thanks to Anne and her staff. If anything went wrong...I wasn't aware! She is definitely in the right business and has the best attitude about everything! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect!

We honestly can not say enough about Anne, LeighAnne, and everyone else on staff at Delightful Inspirations. From start to finish, our wedding day was everything we wanted and more. They were there for us through the entire planning process and all of my questions, no matter how ridiculous.
With their experience and plentiful resources there was nothing that was over looked and our day went off without a hitch. The ceremony was in the beautiful garden area then we had an outstanding reception inside. We are still getting compliments on the appearance, food, service, and more, 5 months later.
