    Best wedding venue ever!

    We were just married at Audubon House this past weekend. I must say, the photos do not do this place justice. This venue is absolutely beautiful! The garden is filled with amazing flowers, which makes decorating so simple. You really do not need to add much to the already lush gardens. The back drop for the ceremony, which is the house, was absolutely perfect! The staff is so friendly, kind, and attentive. Laura was so nice and helpful with the planning process. I must add, the lanterns they have throughout the garden are more than enough to light up at night and help to create that romantic feel. You don’t need to spend the money on the string lights if you don’t want to. I would highly recommend Audubon as your wedding venue for both your ceremony and reception.

    Beautiful Amazing Property!

    We had just our ceremony at this location and it was absolutely perfect! We had the location reserved for an hour and was a perfect amount of time. The Event Coordinator onsite was extremely easy to work with and very helpful planning from far away. The property itself is extremely beautiful and in a really great location. I'd highly recommend getting married at this location.

    The Audubon is one of my absolute favorite places to photograph. The property and the staff are always a dream! I highly recommend contacting them today!

  • Kevin Wright Wedding DJs

    With their lush gardens and stunningly beautiful tropical setting, Audubon House is a great pick for a perfect old island wedding. Steeped in history, and in a location that can't be beat, they always offer great service. It's an intimate setting that's big enough for a dancefloor and large groups without getting lost in a corporate ballroom. As a DJ I love it because it puts me in front of the people who want to dance all night, and still offers a quieter area for those who need to rest their feet for a few...
