Breathtaking, Intimate Venue in Gainesville
I fell in love with this place the first time I saw it on a Google search. The pictures almost don't even do it justice. Seating is kind of tight, but it was just perfect for our 100 guests to get to know each other. They have a piano just inside the door, and it's actually linked to a sound system so you can plug in your laptop/tablet. The acoustics are *superb*, no microphones or soundbars needed. Our ceremony was at 4 pm on a September Saturday, and the sun was at such an angle that everything had a soft glow. There is a huge, noisy ac vent on the floor of the stage, but we turned it off during the ceremony and it stayed nice and cool inside, even with all the windows around. I will say one thing I wish I hadn't done was try to decorate the aisle. I wanted a greenery vine just to have "something" there, but honestly it's really not necessary. Especially if you're like me and you have a 4-hoop petticoat on underneath your dress. The aisle was just wide enough for us to walk side-by-side, but my dress was so huge that it kept trying to eat the vine. Save your $100 on the greenery and put it towards having an extra hour at the Baughman Center for pics. We had 30 minutes after the ceremony to get pics before we had to be 100% out of there, and I wish now that I had booked more time. The inside and outside are just so fantastic! The ready room is attached to the office next to the Baughman, and it's fine for getting dressed if that's all you're doing in it. Ah, and correspondence... Zakyia is on top of her game!! She is considerate, thorough, and an excellent correspondent. She was always willing to answer any questions I had and very quick to follow up whenever I reached out. Zakiya is definitely dedicated to making sure your day is magical, and we're very glad to have worked with her. If you're on the fence about choosing the Baughman Center, just go take a visit (on the weekdays before 5!) and you will be convinced. 10/10 would get married here again!!!Sent on 12/03/2019

Baughman Center's reply:Thank you for this wonderful review and the gorgeous photos! You and your family were a joy to have with us. Wishing you the best in your happily ever after.
Lovely setting for weddings, set on the picturesque University of Florida campus. Many of our clients hold their ceremony there, then come to us to celebrate, eat, dance and make merry. Photos taken at this ceremony site are simply mesmerizing, and we're proud to offer this location as an alternative to a couple hoping for an indoor ceremony in a chapel setting before coming to us for their party.
A beautiful venue to have a ceremony at. We have so many of our clients that couldn't have their wedding anywhere else. We are grateful to have the Baughman Center in Gainesville to recommend as a venue not only as weddings but piano recitals, even corporate events.
This is a beautiful place to get married! Very unique and scenic. It is less than a mile from my salon, so many of my brides get ready at ou salon and complete the final touches at the Baughman Center's getting ready room.
