    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!

    Baughman Center's reply:

    Thanks for such a beautiful review Gabrielle. We are so honored to have been a part of your special day and are thrilled you have defined it as "magical". The Baughman Center Staff wishes you both a joyful and prosperous future! Don't be a stranger!

    Stunning Venue

    The Baughman Center was the perfect venue for my wedding ceremony. My fiance and I were from different faith backgrounds and wanted a place that felt spiritual, but not overly religious, and the Baughman Center was ideal for us. The wonderful staff, Stephanie Comstock included, were warm and friendly and helped us to customize every detail to make sure our day was perfect and exactly how we envisioned it. We recieved nothing but wonderful comments from all our family and friends on how beautiful the ceremony was. Its also a great option for those who want to be able to see nature and have some beautiful views while also ensuring that your ceremony won't be moved due to rain. Its a perfect "indoor that feels like it could be outdoor" venue due to the large windows overlooking Lake Alice on UF Campus. I'm definitely biased, but I strongly believe this is the best ceremony venue in Gainesville!

    Gorgeous Ceremony Venue

    The Baughman Center was the perfect place for our spring wedding. The staff were accommodating to all of our requests and so responsive. Our guests were blown away by the beauty of the building, particularly the backdrop of Lake Alice beyond the front windows. We decided against decor in the venue because the Baughman Center is so beautiful on its own. The area around the chapel also made for the most gorgeous and most Florida photos. We couldn't imagine having our wedding day any other place.

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.
