When looking for a venue, we wanted something a little different but also something that would require minimal extra decorations, and this was the perfect place. The nature center is so beautiful on its own that we hardly needed to add anything! Because our wedding was in the winter, we used the auditorium for the ceremony but were able to take some pictures outside as well and everything turned out beautiful.
We chose to hold both our ceremony and our reception at the nature center, which made for a seamless transition for both of us and our guests. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and fit our vision perfectly. It made for gorgeous photos and our guests had overwhelmingly positive feedback!
veranda wound up being even more perfect and beautiful than we had imagined. It fit all of our 115 guests easily, and provided a more intimate atmosphere, especially paired with the sound of rain falling behind us.
