A beautiful landmark and important of the town’s identity, the arboretum has delighted local and out-of-town guests for years.

Facilities and Capacity

Carleen Bright Arboretum offers several outdoor sites that are ideal for hosting a ceremony amongst the beauty of Mother Nature. Newlyweds can explore the grounds for a wedding photo shoot, taking time to pose before the flowers and on a bridge that crosses a small stream. The Pavilion is an open and large event space that can welcome large receptions. Its Great Hall welcomes natural light through large windows, and rustic beams traverse its high reaching, gabled ceiling. From these hang simple light fixtures, and the room’s refined decor encourages couples to get creative when decorating. The room can host up to 500 guests for a cocktail reception or 360 seated. There are two large patio spaces attached to the Pilion, both of which are lit by string lighting as night falls. Its gardens also include a Gazebo that is a fairytale location for ceremonies. There is parking available on-site for guests arriving from far and wide.

    Beautiful Venue

    The Arboretum offers a unique space for your wedding day! We were able to rent both buildings for our rehearsal dinner and wedding day and have the entire grounds to use for the weekend. The staff is very friendly and easy going and made for such a smooth wedding day. Most vendors in Waco have used the Arboretum before which makes for a smooth and easy wedding day! Definitely recommend this venue!

    This venue was absolutely beautiful and so inexpensive compared to other local venues. The office staff were so easy to work with and planning was very easy. All tables and chairs are provided and there is bridal suite and full kitchen. Restrictions would be that there is no place for the groomsmen to get ready and there are lots of restrictions when it comes to what you can use for the departure (no sparklers, etc) but I still give this 5 stars because of the money we saved and how gorgeous everything is. We held the wedding inside, but there is are several pretty spots to have it outdoors. We got lots of compliments on the venue and I still want to go back again and walk through the gardens. I've done lots of research and this is by far the best value around.
