Facilities and Capacity

Whether you envision an intimate ceremony within the woods or a rustic reception at the old barn, this venue can play host to your unforgettable occasion. For those seeking an outdoor space for their ceremony and reception, the site’s expansive grounds can accommodate festivities of up to 200 guests. There are endless ceremony sites depending on the number of your gathering. In the past, couples have configured the private lawns for tranquil ceremonies. With views of the forest, couples can exchange vows in the presence of nature and their loved ones. Post-ceremony photo sessions can also take place in the site’s horse stables. Decorated with intimate lighting and wedding signage, these renovated stables make for a great setting to create cherished photos. Outdoor receptions can also take place on the site. There is ample space for tents, live entertainment, a dance floor, and more. Couples and their guests can rejoice in harmony as the hazy sun sets over the woods and your blissful day. Receptions may also be arranged within the old barn. Featuring high ceilings, wooden beams, and white-washed walls, this event space acts as a blank canvas for you to design. The barn can be conjured in a variety of ways and has enough space for seated guests, a dance floor, and live entertainment. Further facilities include the Schoolhouse and a camping site. The house has been refurbished to host both wedding parties before the big moment arrives. Both entourages can relax on comfortable furniture and slowly get ready as they look forward to the celebrations ahead. The camping site is ideal for overnight guests who picture gazing up at the stars at the end of an incredible night.

    Absolutely Flawless Experience!

    I helped coordinate a large wedding at this beautiful venue. The staff went above and beyond! We arrived to the venue and the tables were set with ironed table cloths and chairs around each table. McKenna arrived early to open the facility and was faithful to work out all the details throughout set up and the day of the wedding. She was so precious!

    It was a beautiful out door wedding, with a fantastic reception in the building. The building ended up being larger than we even anticipated. We were able to fit more tables than we even had originally planned!

    It was an incredible experience!

    Magical Place

    I don’t even know where to begin. I am still gushing over our perfect day. A day that would not have been possible without Zach, Kim, and WaConDa Woods & Gardens team! When I started planning the wedding, the most important piece for me was the pictures and I wanted a place with a gorgeous background. The venue allowed for so many scenes! We took pictures outside where everything was so green and lush. The reception building offered an elegant feel. We also snuck into the stables for a few there and got some on the swing set (these turned out super cute)! Some of our best pictures were at the schoolhouse! This was my favorite part of the venue. We used this as a private prep area for the wedding party. It was nice to have a place to sit and relax before and after the ceremony. I don’t even know that I could accurately describe all the ways this venue went above and beyond for us. To give some additional background, I was a Corona bride. This put us in uncharted territory. However, the venue was quick to react to the circumstances. They built guards to put over the buffet and had servers available for the food. Plus, the reception building allowed for plenty of room for social distancing. It never would have crossed my mind, but they made so many accommodations to make our guests feel at ease with the ongoing COVID pandemic. We had to make quick decisions and were constantly changing up our plans; however, the venue was beyond flexible and continued to accommodate our changing circumstances. Our wedding also happened to be on a rainy day. In the morning, we had decided we would set up the ceremony outside, weather permitting, and if not - the venue helped us coordinate a plan to bring the wedding inside. We had already planned to hold the reception in the building, so it was decorated beautifully – lights were hung from the high ceiling and the ambiance was amazing. I didn’t have to worry at all. Until I arrived at the venue, I expected everything to be set up inside since it was raining even on our way to the venue. However, with a quick break in the rain, the venue was able to get everything set up in a short amount of time, so we were able to hold the ceremony outdoors. The turnaround time was amazing. Following the ceremony, the wedding party had escaped to the schoolhouse for some celebratory hugs and by the time we had exited, the chairs from the ceremony were already in place inside. It was such an elegant scene! I wish my words could express how magical this day was. I am so grateful for everything that WaConDa Woods & Gardens provided to make my dreams come true! Thank you to Zach, Kim, and the entire team at WaConDa Woods & Gardens!
