We had our wedding on memorial day weekend, it was a very warm day but despite the heat we had the most wonderful experience. I was worried about having the ceremony in a public park but it turned out to be a such a private and intimate ceremony. Meaghan was such pleasure to work with, she always answered my emails quickly and offered me tons of advice regarding the ceremony timeline. I also would like to extend my thanks to Kristen and Bella who help coordinate things the day of the actual wedding. Just in case folks were wondering wilder park is LGBTQ friendly and we very much appreciated being treated like any other couple. Thank you Wilder Park Staff.
