Stunning Venue

The Baughman Center is a beautiful wedding venue. We were very pleased with all aspects it. The details in the architecture allows for it to decorate itself and it makes for stunning photos! I highly recommend considering this gem of a venue.

Picturesque Reception Location

The Baughman Center is the most beautiful reception location. The team was so responsive and helpful through the entire process. I could not have chosen a prettier location to say our 'I Dos' and would recommend to anyone! All of our guests absolutely loved the venue. The views are almost prettier than the venue--ALMOST!

This is just the most beautiful space. Had no issues booking the space and working with the staff. It's a bit more expensive than other chapel/church rentals but this was the place to spend more. The ceremony was very important to me and just magical!

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.
