Reverend Denise Kay Gallia?
That is a good question, because I believe many
couples spend so much time planning other aspects
of their wedding day, that they forget that the
Minister, Reverend, or Pastor is a very important
that wedding day and will set the tone of their
I became an ordained Christian Reverend in 2005.
In 2008 I rededicated myself to Jesus Christ
UNTCI (United New Testament Church) and now
Testament Church) and now Christian wedding
Why is that important to the couples looking at
A Garden of Wedding Dreams to host their wedding day?
Another good question.
Couples wanting the personalized Christian wedding
ceremony know that marriage is a scared and
blessed event. Ceremonial vows created for them on
this special day will be carried with them through
the years of their marriage. The bride and groom
will be able to fall back on these words and be
confirmed by them as true and blessed by God. The
wedding couple will be able to reflect and draw on
their ceremony in both the good and bad times that
are to come. Couples will be comforted in knowing
God was not only invited but was present during
their ceremony and in the times that are to come.
a Bride be interested in a Destination
Wedding venue like A Garden of Wedding Dreams?
This is an interesting question because Eureka
Springs is a destination wedding & tourist town.
Any Bride considering Eureka Springs knows that
everyone will be traveling to their wedding from a
different town, city and/or state. We feel
reminding any potential Bride of this helps both
the Bride and the venue. It is all about making
the proper fit for both the Bride and the venue.
We hope this understanding will facilitate couples
in choosing the best venue for their special day.
We offer the convenience of a venue that provides
everything for Bride to Be planning her wedding
day. All she has to do is basically show up.
For the couple seeking a stress free, memorable
wedding, A Garden of Dreams is a perfect
match, because that is what we do best.
Do You have any expertise specifically as A
As a matter of fact, I do. In 1998, my husband and
I joined a inter-faith church in California. This
was a beautiful 1885 Victorian Church in a small
town called Sunol. They quickly recruited me as
the wedding coordinator. 3 -1/2 years later when I
left Sunol to pursue my own Wedding Ministry, I
had coordinated over 400 weddings at that church.
Do You Accept Payments?
We accept Visa, Mastercard. If the Bride
orders the Platinum or the Premium Full Packages
and books 5 months in advance, we require a 35%
deposit, with two payments prior to the wedding,
final payment must be paid 30 days in advance of
her wedding day. The Basic package requires a 75%
deposit, with the final 25% due 15 days prior to
her wedding date. We give a 10% discount on all
packages if paid in full at time of booking.
If a Bride wants to learn more, what should be
her next step?
I suggest she begin by visiting our
Blog for more planning tips. Then look at
3 basic packages
to find something that closely fits her wants
and desires. After selecting the package suiting
her best, then she can put everything together by
filling out our Wedding Day Planning Form. At this
point, it is placed in our hands. We will
design a close match and contact her by the email
she provided to us in the initial online
consultation. If it sounds like it might be a fit,
then the next step would be to come visit us in
person. If the Bride to Be lives several hours
away. We can provide two very nice B&B
accommodations, The Sara Rose or our Once In A
"Blue Moon" suite. We can work out a
combination mini vacation or get away with person
to person consultation all at the same time as
their stay with us.
I also suggest that you take some time to look
around our websites: A Garden of Dreams and A
Garden of Wedding Dreams. At these websites
you will find Gallery pictures of the property,
along with lodging information and even a Webcam
of the historic loop in Eureka Springs.
It is all about getting to know each other first.
Your Wedding Day will be one of those milestones
in your life. It needs to be a good memory from
start to finish. We expect to see our couples time
after time again for the rest of their lives.
