Wedding Tasting

Went to John James Audubon and had our wedding tasting. The food was unreal and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We especially liked seeing the venue set up just like an actual wedding. This helped us get a sense of what it will look like on our big day. If you are looking for a wedding venue, look no further. We are looking forward to our big day!

Wedding Planning

We have been working with JJAC and JAM to plan our upcoming wedding. We have worked with the office staff as well as starting to plan with our personal planner. They have been so great about answering all of our questions and being so responsive in doing so. They gave advice when needed and just listened to all of our thoughts with ease. They have been so great to work with and we are so excited for our upcoming wedding!

Highly recommend having your wedding at John James Audubon Center!

We are so happy we had our wedding at the John James Audubon Center! It has the most beautiful nature backdrop for pictures outside. Our ceremony and cocktail hour were in the barn and it was one of the most beautiful buildings. Our guests were so impressed by it! The reception in the pavilion was gorgeous with large windows, a fireplace and mantle, and ample space for our guests. Our JAM coordinator was the MVP of the day and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. I would highly recommend having your wedding at the John James Audubon Center!
