Outdoor Ceremonies: choose between several locations overlooking the lake or the more private amphitheater for your prairie garden ceremony. White chairs available to rent for outdoor use.
Reception halls: Venue options include the gorgeous larger Prairie Pavilion (covered patio, sliding glass doors, sound system) and smaller Visitor and Education Center (kitchen, dressing room, full length windows, gallery/entry hall), both with full views of the gardens and grounds. Both buildings provide a sound system and drop down screens for showing videos or slideshows, as well as usage of our banquet tables and padded wooden chairs. Wifi available. A preparation kitchen in the Visitor and Education Center is available for use by outside caterers (not included in "pavilion only" rental).
