Fantastic place to have a reception if your guest list is about 100 or less. Ours was 120 or so and was a bit cramped but worked out just fine when we added the hallway.

We were able to have an indoor wedding and not have to worry about the weather but were allowed to take pictures outside in the gardens if it was a nice day - and we had a beautiful day!;A great location for a small wedding and reception.
I have been in the wedding and reception venue business for 20 years! I was married in August 2015 and had fun being on the other side, being a bride!! I look forward to helping you plan your most special day here at Cox Arboretum! We have several options for you to choose from and I will be happy to tell you about all of them!
