What type of wedding does your venue work best for?

We are specifically designed to accommodate outdoor weddings from late spring through early fall. Children are welcome and there are options, such as horseshoes and badminton, to help keep them occupied. Guests of all ages enjoy the ever-changing seasons and beauty of the outdoors.
What makes your venue unique?
One of our many unique features is the truly natural beauty of our lovely grounds. Several small creeks allow lush ferns and other water loving plants to flourish and have allowed a distinctive stand of quaking aspen to mature. A spring- filled pond is home to turtles and fish and is a favorite feature enjoyed by all. Unique photo opportunities are available everywhere. From the natural beauty of the lush outdoors, including a nostalgic swing, to the reflection pond, vibrant gardens, tall grasses and glorious summer skies and sunsets, photographers forever capture special moments.
What’s the capacity of your venue?
We can accommodate up to 200 guests.

Couples may self-cater or select a caterer of their choice. For either situation, our food service area is set up with tables and linens ready for food service and is easily accessible for guests. We have a large freezer, two refrigerators, and numerous electrical outlets for your use. We find that couples are happy to have a choice and like the flexibility of choosing what works best for them.
Do you have a ceremony location?
We have a lovely lighted pergola that sits in front of the large spring-filled pond. A stunning backdrop of cattails and a striking aspen tree line adds to the beauty of this special occasion. The pergola can be personalized and decorated with tulle, flowers, ribbons, and so forth to match the bride’s colors and theme. Guests view the wedding, unobstructed, due to a gentle slope of the site surrounding the ceremony location. Nearby trees provide welcome shade during the warm summer months.
What advice do you have for couples planning their wedding?
