Wedding ceremony package

If you are interested in having your ceremony and reception with us, the best option is to add on the Wedding Ceremony Package for $900 –  no matter the ceremony location inside or outside.  Our Wedding Ceremony Package includes set-up and breakdown of your chairs at your ceremony site, a dressing room for the bride and groom, and a sixty minute rehearsal at your ceremony site during our normal business hours 1 – 2 days before your wedding.  This is an ideal choice because guests can enjoy the splendor of the Center and grounds as they go from the ceremony to the reception.

Cocktail Hour

If you are interested in having a cocktail hour between your ceremony and reception (completely optional), we have a number of fantastic spaces!
Cocktail Hour Space Choices: the Bridge, the Main Exhibit Hall, and the Dining Area.

Reception Spaces

Both the Ivy Room and Blue Planet offer splendid views and is the perfect backdrop to your special day.  Another great option is to rent the entire Center, allowing your guests to mingle, experience our Museum, and celebrate you.

Blue Planet is a room all its own and is our largest room that can seat up to 225 people.  There is plenty of room for buffet/drink service, and dancing.  If you want to concentrate the seating in Blue Planet, then a buffet and bar can be set up in the Dining Room.

Ivy Room seats between 120 – 140, depending on the dance floor and how your food is served.  If you are looking at a reception of around 150 people, renting the Dining Room and Ivy Room together is ideal.
