Spring Wedding at Ijams Nature Center
From the beginning, the staff was incredibly helpful and responsive. We were blown away by how easy the process was and how much was included, from the tables, chairs, and tent to the bartenders and table settings added for a minimal fee.
The homestead site was gorgeous, with plenty of space for the ceremony, the cocktail hour, and the reception. It was absolutely beautiful for an April wedding. Everything was lush and verdant.
We couldn't have asked for a better day or a better place to gather our friends and family and celebrate our wedding!
