Amazing Venue for ANY Event
We had our wedding ceremony at the Paine and it was the most perfect day. Not only did the gardens provide a beautiful setting, but Laura and her staff made our experience one we will never forget. This venue is top-notch for weddings and Laura is the most genuine, accommodating, and professional event coordinator you will ever meet. Don't miss out on having your wedding at the Paine!Sent on 08/09/2020

Team of Paine Art Center and Gardens
Director of Events
Events are my passion. For more than two decades, I have been planning custom events including corporate events, academic ceremonies and weddings.
I love what I do - no two events are ever the same. I especially enjoy learning about what is most important to my clients and helping them create just the right plan to support their dream day.
I feel privileged to lead the events team at the Paine Art Center and Gardens, a truly magical place for a wedding. From ceremonies, to receptions to photography sessions, our estate is truly a unique and beautiful setting for a Fairy Tale Wedding.
I enjoy building strong relationships with our clients, so that they feel extremely comfortable hosting their wedding at our venue. I have worked in events at The Paine for three years, and I thoroughly enjoy assisting couples who are planning their weddings on our grounds. I take special care by meeting with our couples to make sure they have thought through important details before we host their wedding at our venue. It brings me joy when they arrive at The Paine on their wedding day well prepared, informed, and excited for their wedding day.
The Paine is one of the most historical and beautiful places in Oshkosh to have a wedding. I have worked there numerous times and recommended the venue for couples and family members that are planning an outdoor wedding. It provides backdrops and natural beauty that you cannot find elsewhere, and the staff is amazing.
The Paine Art Center & Gardens is one of the most beautiful venues in Oshkosh. There staff is friendly and very willing to help. The grounds are always immaculate and there is a photo op around every corner. Anyone who has their wedding there is a very lucky, the experience is almost enchanting :)!
The Paine has to be one of the most beautiful properties for a wedding ceremony in this state, combine that with a professional staff that is passionate about providing each bride and groom with a unique memorable experience and this venue is amazing.
