    Baughman Wedding

    The Baughman Center is a great location to have your ceremony if you are in Gainesvillen FL. The staff was very kind and helped us with everything we needed. They always answered in a timely manner. They also made sure we had everything we needed for the big day. The location itself is so beautiful. It is the perfect place to have a wedding.

    Wonderful!

    I've been wanting to get married at the Baughman Center ever since I was a freshman in college (about 13 years ago). I finally got my wish, and it was EVERYTHING I could have hoped for. Not only is the venue beautiful, but those who run everything behind the scenes in the office were phenomenal. One happy bride right here!

    A Perfect Location

    The Baughman Center was the perfect place for an intimate wedding. There is not a more beautiful place in Gainesville; the inside of the chapel is so full of light that you feel you are outside!

    Our wedding ceremony site

    We used the Baughman center for our wedding ceremony. It turned out BEAUTIFUL!!! Everything went as expected except for the parking. =( The parking lot was full and not from my guest, but from the flag football tournament that was going on across the street. Besides that hiccup the staff at the Baughman center are very attentive and help in anyway they can. The dressing room was PERFECT for me and my bridesmaids. Couldn't have pictured a more perfect day. =D

    Our wedding guests cannot stop commenting about how perfect and beautiful the Baughman Center was for our ceremony! Basically, they learned what we already knew about this awesome place. Working with Zakiya and team leading up to the big day was super simple and they were always ready to help us however they could. They're even the ones who recommended the pianist we used (who was also awesome).

    As a same-sex couple, we struggled mightily before the wedding to find reviews of venues from other same-sex couples, so I also want to take a moment to say how this fact didn't even faze them one bit. Ever. The Baughman Center team was awesome from start to finish, and I can't recommend them and this venue highly enough.

    We are so pleased with the Buaghman Center. This was the first vendor that we contacted and reserved. Planning this wedding from out of state was made easier by the Baughman Center staff. Zakiya was so accommodating for our initial tour and remained very involved throughout our planning process. On the day of, the venue was clean and just as we had pictured for our big day. We were happy to see that the parking lot, bridge walkway, etc all had signs stating there was a private event which discouraged others from coming on the property. Book the Baughman Center with confidence!

    Unrivaled beauty, the Baughman Center is without an equal. Our wedding guests raved about the views! Minimal effort is needed to setup the space, and your ceremony pictures are a masterpiece from every camera angle. Not to mention the staff is polite and responsive with requests. I would not have changed a thing!

    From the first time I contacted the staff at the Baughman center more than a year in advance of our wedding all the way up to our big day they were amazing! Any question I had including measurements of the aisle for flower petals were answered quickly and accommodating changes was a breeze. The venue itself is beautiful as is which helped with decorating expenses. We ran over slightly on our time with both the rehearsal and wedding but the staff were patient and understanding. The architecture inside the chapel is captivating and the lake view from the windows is unrivaled.Hands down, THE venue for a dream come true wedding in Gainesville !

    We could not have asked for a more beautiful location for our wedding ceremony! The sunlight that comes in through the windows is breathtaking and the acoustics are very good inside the hall. The staff was very professional and responsive. Venue is very reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

    The Baughman Center is breathtaking. My husband and I just got married there on January 6th, 2018 and are so in love with this venue. We met in Gainesville at The University of Florida and fell in love with the Baughman Center. When it was time to plan our wedding, there was no better place than here. Zakiya and her staff were amazing and made it very easy to plan our wedding remotely!

    The Baughman Center is by far the most beautiful venue I have ever seen. Our ceremony was perfect, we did not even have to do any florals or anything, the venue is that gorgeous on it's own. All staff members were friendly and more than helpful. My only reservation was on the night of our rehearsal we had the space booked and when we showed up the entire parking lot was full and there were high-schoolers everywhere surrounding the property taking prom pictures. Even though the staff put out event signs asking them not to go beyond certain points, they still did. I know that is totally outside of the staff's control, and they did their best to walk around and ask them to move and to be courteous of our party.

    I can't say enough about how perfect the Baughman Center was for our wedding. It was everything we imagined and more - my Seminole husband even loved it ;) Our pictures our out of this world and people can't believe this gem exists on UF's campus. The Baughman Center staff was extremely helpful (I was planning my wedding from Dallas, TX) and they made the planning process easy and organized. We had around 90 guests and everyone fit perfectly/comfortably. I would highly recommend the Baughman Center for a wedding ceremony.

    The Baughman Center was the perfect place for our Gainesville wedding in April. With unpredictable weather, it was so nice not having to worry about rain or wind and the gorgeous windows still made it feel like a wedding set in nature. The staff at the Baughman Center were immensely helpful and the price is right for a 2-3 hour space rental. Family and friends loved the building and the setting against Lake Alice. We felt like it was the best way to have a little Gator Pride during our wedding. Highly recommend!!

    Such a beautiful venue! I wish I saw myself walking through the doors and down the aisle, but I'm told it was magical. Brianna (event coordinator) was great to work with. Make sure you reserve the Baughman Center well in advance because they book up fast.
