The Carrier Arboretum is a beautiful place for a wedding no doubt, excepting the pond can be an ugly color after it rains, such as with my wedding. Regardless, it was fantastic. All services go through Bobbie Elliott, so that can be a hassle if you need something done at the last minute. Everything worked out perfectly though since the service was fairly simple. Use of the arboretum for a wedding is $500 which includes use for the rehearsal, an electrical cord, reserved parking, and use of the pavilion in case of rain. Bobbie was very professional and I had a good impression of her and the service. My only complaint would be the price, but I have sympathy since the arboretum may have to shut down due to lack of funding.
