Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A unique spot to get married is the grand Courtyard at the Egyptian entrance, where lush gardens with towering reeds evoke the feeling of being on the banks of the Nile River.
  • Reception options are incredibly diverse: The Teton Trek Lodge is warm and inviting with its two fireplaces and log cabin décor. For something more exotic, choose the China Exhibit, boasting a courtyard, reception hall, teahouse, and beautiful Chinese gardens. Then there’s the historic Cat House Cafe, a casual space that opens onto a garden patio.
  • All the details are taken care of! From florists to caterers to rentals, their event professionals will make all the arrangements so that you can relax and enjoy the celebration.
