"Our wedding at the UEC was magical! We couldn't imagine a better ceremony or reception setting - the outdoor ceremony location was so gorgeous with such a small amount of decor and was so easy for our guests to access. The walk back to the reception was beautiful... The building was perfect for a reception - people looking for a quieter atmosphere or to do the activities could be upstairs and the dancing was downstairs." - Kayla and Pete

"Our experience with the Urban Ecology Center was phenomenal! Due to the pandemic and international complications (my husband is from Europe and we were living on separate continents when Covid hit) we had to reschedule our date 3 times. Through all of the uncertainty and stress the staff, especially MaryBeth, we interacted with were understanding, compassionate, and flexible. They were aware of the ever-changing restrictions and created plans that felt reasonable and safe. I felt confident that we would still be able to celebrate our love in a meaningful way in the space my husband and I both adored." - Theresa and Arek
