We had such a wonderful experience throughout the whole process of planning our wedding at this venue! Nicole and team were so helpful from beginning to end, even as we needed to make adjustment after adjustment due to the pandemic. The safety policies and procedures were clearly communicated and explained, allowing our guests to feel safe and at ease throughout the day. The wedding day experience went off without a hitch, and we can’t recommend the Darby House enough!!

Having our wedding at Darby House made all my dreams come true. First, the venue holds historic value– it is situated on Darby Dan Farm, a farm that produced multiple thoroughbred horse racing champions. Because of this, a former US President and British royalty have visited the farm. The venue itself holds many historical artifacts of note, including artwork and memorabilia, which were fun for guests to enjoy during the reception. Secondly, the venue itself is gorgeous and well maintained. When you enter the property, you enter through a gate and stone fence, then drive down about a mile of white fenced, tree-lined driveway to the outwardly quaint looking house. Upon entering, you are greeted with an entire wall of floor to ceiling windows with sweeping views of the Big Darby Creek. There are two large rooms on either side of the entryway; on the left, the Dining Room, and on the right, the Racing Room. We worked with CMPE to select all food, the style of bar service that suited our needs, and the decorative displays throughout the venue. This made planning a wedding from another city much easier, because the only other vendors I had to book myself were cake, entertainment, flowers, and the pastor. Our family and friends had the best time at our wedding and loved the outdoor and indoor space. The food was impeccable and our guests left feeling happy and full. Every need our guests had was met by Emily and her incredible staff… We had no worries on our wedding day– it was perfect, and this is largely due to the Darby House and CMPE. Thank you for making our day unforgettable and flawless for our family, our friends, and for us!
I love everyone I worked with!! Nicole is the best! I’m so excited to get married!
