    My fiance and I couldn't be happier with the Schlitz Audubon as our wedding venue. The events team was very responsive and flexible as we planned our winter, indoor wedding in front of their hearth room fireplace. You can add string lights and a visit from the birds of prey from their raptor program for a nominal extra cost. They were extremely professional and the best part is they're a nonprofit so the money you spent goes to a great cause!

    We chose the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center because of our love of nature and how beautiful the site is. Even if you need to use the backup plan for your ceremony, it is still beautiful. Logistically I was nervous with the timing of everything as it is a public space, but if you pick professional vendors that have been there before, they all know the drill and things went incredibly smooth. We worked with Jessica who was amazing to work with. She was professional, told us things straight, gave us great recommendations, answered our questions in a timely manner, and was great when dealing with my mom as well when she had questions and asked for advice. She was so accommodating and we really enjoyed working with her. They have amazing staff that made our day wonderful. The Schlitz Audubon made for our dream wedding and we couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you so much for everything - we loved, loved, loved our wedding day here!
