Lawn in the azalea and potentilla collection of Longenecker Horticultural Gardens

Do you dream of a gorgeous location for a wedding, commitment, or vow renewal ceremony?

The Arboretum could be your special place. (Sorry, no receptions.) We invite inquiries from couples who want a unique, ecologically sensitive ceremony. Do you envision nature for decoration, acoustic music, open air, and simplicity? You could tie the knot in one of Madison’s beloved natural areas.

Please note that the Arboretum gardens and natural areas will remain open to the public during ceremonies.

A wedding, commitment, or vow renewal ceremony at the UW–Madison Arboretum supports our mission to advance ecological restoration and Aldo Leopold’s land ethic through research, land care, and education.

We will accept reservations for the following 2019 dates. Please contact us to confirm availability and request rate information.

  • June 15 and 22
