The Paine Art Center and Gardens provided the most beautiful setting for my daughter & son-in-law’s wedding. Michelle Rector, the event manager, was amazing. She provided a sense of calm and direction in the hectic planning stage, rehearsal, and wedding day! With her help and guidance, as well as her wonderful staff, Kelly and Dave had a spectacular wedding. The Paine now has a beautiful new facility, the Conservatory. As the weather was a bit gloomy just prior to the ceremony, Michelle and her staff, provided us with the option to move the ceremony from the Garden to the Conservatory. It was a perfect choice…the wedding in the Conservatory and pictures in the Gardens. We had the best of all possible opportunities and Michelle made that happen! From the rehearsal to the wedding, all details were covered and everything went smoothly because Michelle and her staff are so professional and organized. Kelly and Dave were so happy with their ceremony and picture location and our guests were equally pleased with the opportunity to enjoy such a spectacular location. Thank you! (The reception was held at a different location. The wedding ceremony and pictures were held at the Paine!!)

We had our ceremony here and it went great! The day was beautiful and hot! The only downfall was that the guys were very hot in their tuxes standing outside on a patio before the ceremony. The girls were able to wait in an air-conditioned dressing room. We were very lucky that we were the only wedding that day, so we got the whole place to ourselves!
