Discover The Gardens
The Dothan Area Botanical Gardens consists of 50 acres of cultivated gardens, nature trails and undeveloped, wooded landscape. The DABG seeks to preserve the remarkable native plants of the area in an attractive balance with traditional botanical garden elements – and is committed to the conservation of natural resources for future generations.
This is the perfect romantic setting. A formal space featuring a fountain and a large entrance pergola, wreathed in wisteria vines, along with a capacity for 600 seated guests. The altar can accomodate a wedding party of twenty. This Garden is bordered by Little Gem dwarf magnolia trees that provide an abundance of large white flowers during the Summer!
Have your reception inside the newest addition to the DABG, and your guests will be dining and dancing only moments after the ceremony in the Gardens! The the newest part of the Ralph & Carolyn Smith Botanical Center, features a full-catering kitchen, large, hardwood dance floor, and a terrific outdoor porch… complete with ceiling fans!
