The Butterfly House was the ideal location for our wedding! We wanted an outdoor wedding, but with a safety net if it rains or got cold (October wedding). The Butterfly House was the perfect option! It was so beautiful and the tent was there in case of rain, but the sides were all open so it still had the beauty of the lake and the garden. The tent can close up and they have heat in case it gets cold, but luckily we didn't need it.
Eileen and staff are wonderful to work with! She was always available when I emailed questions, took excellent care of us during the rehearsal, ceremony, and reception. Everything was taken care of for us, so it was a perfect day!
This was the only unique place (i.e. not a reception hall) that offered personality and included chairs and tables and help with set up (which is a real money saver!).
The carousel was also a really great photo op, I can't wait to get our photos back!
I highly recommend The Butterfly House and Eileen, our wedding was perfect!

I had my ceremony at the Butterfly House this past June. They were amazing!! They provided the sound system, microphones (where ever we wanted them) and they even had a specialist who took my ceremony music I had a friend put onto a CD and made it perfect for the timing I had walked out and down to the platform around the garden. Their coordinators were SOO good and so nice. They kept everything and everyone in check where they needed to be and they were extremely professional! After the ceremony was over, my husband and I got to go inside of the Butterfly Conservatory and take some pictures with our photographers (AMAZING PICTURES!) then we walked over to the other building and took pictures of us all riding on the Carousel and all around the old buildings and houses that are all over Faust Park! We couldn't have chosen a better place to start our future together!

Gorgeous site for my garden wedding. We decided on a June wedding, and thankfully the weather played out perfectly. The women at the butterfly house were very easy to work with and made sure everything went well. We had the butterfly house event manager retire mid planning, so it would have been helpful to have been told that when we started working with them. Overall, a beautiful site and I wouldn't have changed a thing.

We had our wedding and reception at the Butterfly House and it was more than we could have asked for. Amy was wonderful, and our guests enjoyed the chance to see butterflies during the break between ceremony and reception. Everything was outdoors, and everything was amazing!
