    Wonderful!

    If you are looking for an outdoor venue with plenty of scenery, then look no further. Lichterman is absolutely beautiful and provided the best scenery for our wedding. Patti was amazing to work with and was very knowledgeable and professional throughout the wedding planning experience. The prices are very reasonable! I would highly recommend Lichterman Nature Center to anyone thinking about an outdoor wedding and reception.

    Accommodating, Great Value, Gorgeous

    We had a small pop-up wedding and wanted to be married outdoors. We were concerned about weather and photography permits at local parks. When we came across the Lichterman Nature Center we knew this was a place! Because out wedding was so small, we only paid the admission fee for ourselves and our four guests. However, I was amazed at what was offered for the typical $500 wedding fee--you have an indoor/outdoor space for your rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception. THIS IS SUCH A STEAL FOR SUCH A GORGEOUS LANDSCAPE!

    Thanks Jamie for the great review! You looked so lovely that day! Just want to mention our $500 wedding fee just covers the ceremony site, a one hour rehearsal, rooms to get ready in, and unlimited use of our grounds for photography, which is a lot, but doesn't include rehearsal dinner or reception.....Patti Walsh
