Absolutely love the wildlife center at first was a little hard to get ahold of but once we did we were not disappointed the setting is just beautiful and the wedding coordinator is amazing to work with and very reasonable. No complaints this far!Sent on 01/04/2019

If I could go back and do it all over again, I would choose this venue every time. We love nature, We wanted a place where dogs could come (none made it, though), and where the fun could be moved inside if it rained. All of that was available at the Bengel Wildlife Center. We had a crane hanging out during the ceremony and a family of geese joined us for a short time as they walked toward the lake. Prices vary based on the day, so keep that in mind when you're booking this venue. The prices are very reasonable and include wedding and reception venue. We were married on a Saturday and had our alcohol order included in the price. The planner helped us figure out seating arrangments and placement of tables. We went over good-weather and rainy day arrangements. We could not have found a better venue.Sent on 08/26/2016
