Ceremony chairs in Longenecker Horticultural Gardens

We are currently not scheduling any weddings for 2021. As the coronavirus pandemic continues, we are following guidance and recommendations from UW–Madison about gatherings (including private events), public programs, and the Visitor Center. When we are able to accept wedding reservations, we will update this page.

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.
