Urban Ecology Center was a great choice for our big day.Sent on 06/15/2017
They offer the perfect balance of budget and service. It was well priced, but also came with venue services that so many other economical choices don't have. We were able to choose our own caterer, they have a kitchen and dishes to use. We were able to bring certain items in advance. They have the capacity for screens, a bar, an area perfect for buffet, etc. So you have a lot of flexibility as you select vendors, yet the venue still provides staff to flip the room between ceremony and reception and offer other help.
There are tons of great places at the venue for pictures, so I know we'll have a lot of different "looks" even though they were all on the premises!
All our guests loved the venue. It has a lot to offer. There's so much natural wood that we didn't need to do much decorating. My now-husband and I both like sustainability and nature, so this also really complimented our personalities, which a lot of guests commented on as well. I love the concept of getting married at a location that we can go back to over the years, and this venue definitely fits that bill, with free wifi and coffee and tons of community events and programs.

UEC is fabulous. Our guests were amazed at the beauty of the space. Children played all night on the slides and in the playroom. The tower overlooking the city, the wildflowers, the wood dance floor, the fresh air - need I say more?! Paradise!Sent on 10/03/2013

We had a phenomenal wedding at the Urban Ecology Center. It was a beautiful setting and Mike Larson is great to work with. Be prepared to hire your friends and relatives to help, however, as the change from nature center to reception area is fast and furious and there are only two members there to help. Overall, we couldn't have been more pleased with it, however.Sent on 10/22/2012
