My daughter interested to have her wedding in a garden . The atrium at Meadolark Botinical gardens is so beautiful and memorable for wedding ceremony and reception . Wayne as a manager and all executive staff were responsive , helpful , kind and cooperative . Our guests could step outside and enjoy the whole garden during the cocktail hour . I highly recommend this venue to everyone who wants nature and elegance together .

We had my daughter's winter wedding (180 guests) at the Atrium and used the in-house caterer Great Blue Heron. There is a winter discount! The venue is open everyday until 2:30 so we had plenty of opportunities to go over to scout, measure, take photos for planning and that really helped. You work separately and together with the Atrium staff and the GBH staff. They were all very responsive and nice to work with. This place makes for a magical looking winter wedding. All the greenery and white poinsettias created a lush environment so any additional flowers would just be a waste. White lights in the trees inside and outside. Our guests had free access to the Winter Walk of Lights and got a huge kick out of taking a stroll during the reception. I would strongly advise to use GBH - they know what they are doing in this space. We heard all night and after that guests had never had such great food at a wedding. Brian is the head chef but I think runs everything and we had a number of conversations with him personally about set up. They really do try and be flexible even though you are in a regional park facility. The bride and groom are vegetarians and we had many people with serious gluten/nut allergies. They created a menu lacking for nothing and they put up the dietary descriptions we created. We had vegetarian, pasta, fish and chicken and don't think for a minute you are missing out by not having beef. And very important, it all was as delicious at the end of the buffet as it was at the beginning. The passed apps and stationary apps were killer. Because this was a winter wedding, the ceremony and table area is the same. They set up the whole room, move the tables to the side and set up the chairs for ceremony seating. As people moved across the little stream to bar area for cocktail hour they move it all into place in about 12 minutes. People were amazed because it is so quick and quiet.
