About Dyck Arboretum of the Plains

A Prairie Garden

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.

Schedule a tour today to view our facilities and book your wedding by contacting Janelle at 620-327-8127 or arboretum@hesston.edu

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.

Beautiful Venue

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!
