Beautiful venue - perfect for our small outdoor wedding!
Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve was our first choice for our wedding venue. We'd both been there before and loved the peaceful, gorgeous surroundings thanks to the abundance of native wildflowers, trees, and wildlife. The meadow was in full bloom during our wedding in early August, so the flowers were spectacular and there were so many butterflies fluttering around. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location. We're both outdoorsy introverts and wanted a small wedding with a little bit of grace while still feeling connected to nature, and the Preserve delivered exactly that. Definitely recommend!Sent on 08/13/2019

BHWP created the perfect atmosphere for our boho wedding
My partner and I were so glad we chose Bowmans Hill as our venue. Richard was so great to work with, he was patient and kind and helped guide us though everything we needed. It is a very DIY venue, so be prepared to have a hand in everything you need for the reception. We chose it because it allowed us the freedom to create a truly individual event without feeling like we were at a wedding factory. There were no other weddings that weekend (they only book one a weekend) so we were able to set up the day before, which I highly recommend doing. All our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the venue was and there was so much space for our guests to spread out and relax throughout the event. Plus, we got married in June and the fireflies alone were worth booking the venue. I highly recommend checking Bowman's Hill out.Sent on 07/12/2019

The James Moore Pavilion at Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve was exactly what we saw when we envisioned our wedding. A rustic setting with wooden beams and communal seating that is open to the outdoors, so we were in as soon as we found the place online. But it just got better and better when we visited and started to mold it into our own space. The grounds are unbeatable for a wedding. Our photographer said there were countless spots on the property, which was open to us and our guests with just our one rental. We've been in weddings where we had to spend hours reaching places to take photos, but at the Wildflower Preserve, we could have our ceremony, reception and photos taken all in one place. The staff there were so flexible to our ideas. Everything we wanted was allowed - frames in the trees, all our catering and bar choices, lights across the top, cricket on the lawn and even a smoking section, which can be a problem for some nature organizations. Our guests explored secret gardens and trails long before we even arrived. We loved that the place had picnic benches, which they offer to move but were exactly what we wanted for our seating. The whole experience was only made better by the staff, especially Liz who was even there on the Saturday we had the wedding to make sure we were all good during set up. Finally, the price of this venue just cannot be beat. We were on a low budget compared to most weddings I've heard about ($10,000) and pretty much all the venues we looked at were impractical on our budget. The Pavilion only costs us $750 for the day, which, once you see the place - you'll be stunned how that's possible. We could honestly go on and on about this space and the staff that help you there, but to save to the novel we'll just say this - visit it once and you'll be sold.Sent on 06/25/2014
