The Dyck Arboretum of the Plains is perfect for wedding receptions, rehearsals and outdoor ceremonies. We offer the beautiful limestone and cedar Prairie Pavilion and Visitor and Education Center overlooking the lake and loaded with natural light for the perfect indoor/outdoor event.
Outdoor Ceremonies: choose between several locations overlooking the lake or the more private amphitheater for your prairie garden ceremony. White chairs available to rent for outdoor use.
Reception halls: Venue options include the gorgeous larger Prairie Pavilion (covered patio, sliding glass doors, sound system) and smaller Visitor and Education Center (kitchen, bridal room, full length windows, gallery/entry hall), both with full views of the gardens and grounds. Both buildings provide a sound system and drop down screens for showing videos or slideshows, as well as usage of our banquet tables and padded wooden chairs. Wifi available. A preparation kitchen in the Visitor and Education Center is available for use by outside caterers (not included in "pavilion only" rental). Rental of both buildings, which are connected by a patio, is recommended for wedding parties of over 150 guests, and/or for weddings serving a formal dinner.

There isn’t anywhere else we would have wanted our wedding! Janelle was professional and so helpful. She was there the day of our wedding to make sure everything went smoothly. The value was astounding for the venue as well. The nature made it so beautiful we hardly had to decorate! We have reccomended the arboretum to all our friends that have gotten engaged!

I have not had my wedding yet, but just visiting Dyck Arboretum and working with Janelle has been a breeze! I’m so excited for my wedding to get here so I can be married to the man of my dreams in such a beautiful location.

I found this gem a few months ago when my then-fiance and I were looking for a wedding venue. We really enjoyed walking the grounds. There are so many beautiful areas, and each spot unique and special in its own way.
As a wedding venue, I cannot recommend the Arboretum highly enough. The natural beauty of both the indoor and outdoor areas meant we could keep our decorations simple. The staff is amazing, going above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect for your big day.

Dyck Arboretum of the Plains is one of my all time favorite places to photograph! There is a wonderful variety of locations to take photos indoor and out! They also so have a beautiful reception space with walls of windows and sliding glass doors over looking the arboretum and pond area. Rain on your wedding day? No problem! There is a separate space to set up an indoor ceremony space. The staff at Dyck Arboretum is so accommodating and helpful! Recently I shot a very rainy day wedding at the arboretum and Janelle was kind enough to hold an umbrella for me to keep my equipment dry while I photographed the wedding party under a covered porch. This is a wedding venue I will recommend over and over again!
We highly recommend the Dyck Arboretum! Competent, caring staff, clean facility and a beautiful venue!
