    5 Star Review!

    I cannot recommend Woldumar Nature Center enough! Victoria is an absolute dream to work with and every aspect of planning our wedding with her has been seamless! We, unfortunately, had to cancel due to COVID-19 and they were so understanding and graciously refunded our deposit! While we are sad we had to cancel right now, we will absolutely be using them in the future for a rescheduled wedding! Their flexibility, reasonable pricing, gorgeous grounds are enough to make anyone want to book here but the added bonus is the support of the nature center! LOVE them!

    Perfect October Wedding

    We had a beautiful Woldumar wedding on 10/10/2020! We were so worried with COVID restrictions being unpredictable, but everything worked out great! Woldumar managed to give us the wedding we wanted while enforcing COVID restrictions. The nature center was beautiful in the fall. So many great spots for wedding photos! Our guest list was small enough to hold our reception in the barn, and we were very happy with how everything looked inside. The staff of Woldumar are very helpful and really made sure everything went smooth. Especially Victoria, who is really great to work with. We would highly recommend this venue!

    Absolutely gorgeous venue! Highly recommend adding the photo tour to your package. It is well worth it. Victoria was incredibly kind. Helped us create alternative plans for rain and the pandemic.
