Don't Take Our Word For It.
View what brides & grooms have to say about our venue.

How do we even start talking about how special Darby House made our wedding day?!

We honestly and truly cannot put into words how wonderful our experience was at this venue. The people who make this beautiful property a wedding venue cared so deeply about my wife and I that it overflowed into an overwhelmingly joyful experience for every guest and outside vendor that we had with us on our wedding day. From our florist and photographer to our parents, all anyone could talk about was how amazing and special the Darby House made our ceremony!

The property itself was absolutely gorgeous! The large trees and white farm fences that line the long driveway back to the river made my wife feel like a princess when she arrived. Even though we had our wedding before weather can be counted on (early April), the option at Darby House to seamlessly move our ceremony inside or out took all the stress away as we focused on our important day. We were blessed with a 70 degree day and loved getting to say our vows with a beautiful arbor (supplied by Darby House) and the backdrop of the moving water and budding hillside behind us. It was perfect!

Did I mention that they accomplished all of this for us on 6 days notice?? We were unable to utilize our previously planned venue due to the social implications and complications of the coronavirus. A friend of ours reached out to the Darby House to check on the possibility of having our ceremony on their property and that was the last moment we had to worry about a thing. In less than a week we had an entirely new wedding planned and executed with no stores open, no supplies, and all our previous ideas no longer possible.

If you are planning a wedding and want to work with a beautiful venue that cares about you enough to be on your side when you need them most than the Darby House is the venue for you. We have so much to thank them for and will smile on our wedding day for the rest of our lives because of the incredible love and support they invested into making our day incredible!”

“My wife and I got married at the Darby House on September 14th, 2019. It was an absolute fairy-tale experience! This location was exactly what we were looking for. A beautiful venue with lots of nature, gated entrance, long drive to the venue, secluded, etc. There wasn’t a single guest that didn’t comment on how incredible the venue was. We couldn’t have dreamed of a better experience. Would recommend any couple getting married to consider adding this to their list of wedding venues. My wife and I are glad we did.”

“The Darby House made for a STUNNING wedding venue. I knew it was beautiful in the moment, but our pictures and wedding video continue to confirm that’s true. We got married on the back patio along the river and we had the most perfect weather we could have asked for. Jessie was our wedding coordinator and such a delight to work with. Any concerns we brought to the table were calmed after a meeting with her. She was very flexible when we needed it and made sure that the execution was flawless. We would choose the Darby House again 100%. Things we loved: valet parking, beautiful landscape for the wedding and pictures, and having a wedding coordinator to help along the way.”

“The absolutely PERFECT place for our special day! We had a wonderful experience at the Darby House for our wedding and reception. Beautiful place inside and outside, private area for us and our guests, and fabulous execution of all the details. Jessie was our contact through the Darby House and she was very professional, organized, helpful, outgoing, and a pleasure to work with. Thank you for all of your help during our special day and making it turn out so wonderfully! We couldn’t be happier with how everything came together. If the location wasn’t enough, Cameron Mitchell Premier Events really sold us on this venue! We loved all the food and the chefs did an awesome job, as always, preparing the food. We are still getting compliments on the meal and venue! AMAZING!”

“I just had my wedding there yesterday and it was amazing. The venue is stunning and the whole crew was wonderful. I was amazed at how friendly everyone was, and they did so much more than I had anticipated. I worked with Emily and Chandra, and they were both so helpful. The food was amazing, and all the guests were in awe of the beautiful scenery. I don’t typically leave reviews, but I was just so blown away by everything, I wanted to share how great they were! It was the perfect day, thank you!”

Our wedding venue has brought happiness to so many couples.
