I recently got married at the Maitland Art Center on June 3rd. I cannot recommend them enough!! Kelly was an absolute joy to work with, and when we had complications with the rental company, she went above and beyond to fix it and make sure I was completely happy! The only issue was that there was some miscommunication for the set up of the ceremony. There was not enough space between our chairs and the walls, so my parents had to scramble to make things right. Even so, there wasn't enough space, so my dad had to walk backwards up the aisle after walking my mom down, ruining a few photos. I was absolutely unaware of any of this day of though! lol The entire space, including the wonderful Cottage at Lake Lily, was absolutely gorgeous and I'm so happy we went with the Art Center!

This is such a beautiful place to get married. My husband and I just got married on May 11th. The scenery is PERFECT for pictures (especially the garden) Kelly, the rental manager, was absolutely amazing for the months leading up to and on the big day. She went above and beyond to ensure my day was perfect and really helped me throughout the whole wedding process! I would recommend this venue again and again, whether it be for a wedding, a party, or even just to venture out to and enjoy all of the beautiful scenery. I will definitely be visiting again!!
