  • We had our wedding at DBMS just a month ago and I am still on cloud nine; everything was perfect! Despite it raining during the ceremony they had a perfect back up plan and everything went extremely smoothly. Very easy to work with them throughout the planning process and they allowed a lot of flexibility since you bring in all of your own vendors. This also made it easy to DIY and save money in certain areas. Highly recommend!
