Bride-Interview with Reverend Denise Kay, owner/operator of A Garden of Wedding Dreams, located in the historic, Victorian town of Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  ~February 24, 2010

Who Is 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 part of that wedding day and will set the tone of their day.

I became an ordained Christian Reverend in 2005. In 2008 I rededicated myself to Jesus Christ through UNTCI (United New Testament Church) and now Testament Church) and now Christian wedding ceremonies.

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.

Why would 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 Wedding Professional?

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 our 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.
