“We are so unbelievably happy with our decision to choose Darby House as our wedding venue. It provided the exact setting we were looking for with an outdoor ceremony next to the water and a lovely backup indoor option in case of rain. The venue is absolutely gorgeous, eliminating the need for elaborate decorations, and the land made for so many beautiful photos. Nicole was our initial point of contact as well as our day of coordinator, and she was absolutely amazing to work with. She was extremely attentive, answering all our questions, and accommodating us in any way she could to make sure our wedding day was perfect.”

“Choosing the Darby House as our wedding venue was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. The venue is absolutely breathtaking. There are so many beautiful locations for photos and our guests could not stop raving about our venue. Not only is the venue beautiful, but the staff is extraordinarily helpful. Our day of coordinator, Katarina, seamlessly mapped out our special day down to the minute, ensuring everything ran smoothly. She was attentive and made sure my husband’s and my only job was to enjoy the day. I cannot speak highly enough about this wonderful venue”

“Our experience with Darby House was absolutely amazing! From day one, we were very comfortable with the staff and their kind, warm, professional personalities. Alex was our coordinator and I cannot say enough how amazing she was. By the end of our wedding day, she did not feel like just our event coordinator, but a friend. Every time we met with Alex we left feeling very calm and at ease. With the staff at Darby house, we knew our wedding was in good hands. ”

The staff exceeded my expectations and truly made our wedding day everything we dreamed it would be. Alexa, our coordinator, was amazing and very detail oriented. She was able to answer all of my questions in a timely manner and work with us on our budget and help us with everything we wanted for our wedding day.”
