Green Space Wedding & Event Open House
March 21, 2020
Barn venues and nature adorned “rustic” weddings and events have been popular event trends on the rise for many years. With so many barn venues around the state, what sets Woldumar Weddings apart from the rest?
When you book your wedding or event at Woldumar you are not just getting a barn venue. As a nonprofit environmental education center, Woldumar is a cause and a community. Events support our cause. Rental guests join our community.
When you exchange vows under the tall towering trees in the walnut glen amphitheater, you are saying “I do” to continuing years of environmental education, celebrations, conservation, restoration, recreation, and stewardship of a community resource.
When you dance the night away under twinkling lights in our historic barn, you are helping many children create their fondest memories out in nature, from warming up to hot cocoa after a snowshoe hike to catching frogs in the creek during summer camp.
Having your wedding or event at Woldumar directly supports our mission "to educate people about the natural environment." In return, we give you an unforgettable wedding or event experience.
Mark your calendars for March 21st, 2020 from 1-4 p.m. for an afternoon of fun. Meet and greet some of the most talented event vendors around Mid-Michigan, tour our facilities, and enjoy some complimentary refreshments.
The barn will be stylized, giving you inspiration for hosting your own special event with us.
We can't wait to welcome you into our venue and show you what we have to offer! Our staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. Anyone is welcome to attend.
Please RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 517-322-0030 ext 3.
Day of walk in's are great, however, we will have a limited amount of complimentary refreshments.
