Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • You can host an unforgettable wedding surrounded by stunning flora without blowing your budget. In fact, it's hard to beat the lush woodland setting of the new Forest Ceremony Site in the heart of this nature center's 15 acres.
  • Overlooking the property, their 7,000-square-foot Pavilion features a cathedral ceiling, brick wall, and and breathtaking views through two open sides. This very popular venue offers amenities like free WiFi, private restrooms, and wind guards.
  • Another option is the J.S. Bridwell Terrace, a spacious uncovered area planted with native vegetation. And the North Library in the main building can be used for getting ready, relaxing, and taking photos.
