    Perfect for a smaller DIY wedding

    The Foothills Art Center was a great venue for our smaller wedding. Maura was super responsive and accommodating to my 1 million questions, and really helped make our day amazing! Definitely a unique venue if you are looking for something DIY, with a artsy, mountain feel, but still waking distance from great hotels for your guests. It was perfect for us since art is a big part of both of our families, and we were looking for something more casual and personal for our big day. Great for smaller weddings and for couples who don't want to have to buy in to a rigid event package.

    Perfectly extraordinary

    Our wedding here was incredible and unique. The staff were unfailingly helpful in setting up the details and facilitating everything, including the rehearsal and day of. We loved the ambiance, the art displays, and an experience we will certainly never forget the rest of our lives together.

    We got married in the garden at the Foothills Art Center. It was a great spot to get married in. We had about 140 guests. There is a small platform at the top of the space where we stood and said our vows. I loved the brick buildings around the space and the lights that hang over the garden - even though we got married at 4 pm and it was sunny - the strings of lights add to the romantic feel of the space.
