Allen Centennial Gardens
620 Babcock Drive
Located right next to the lake, Allen Centennial Gardens area gorgeous choice for your outdoor wedding. Many people have described it as a “magical place”. It is located in the University area, so you may want to consider that, because pedestrians are still allowed in the park around where you are getting married (but they have never been known to cause trouble – rather, they are usually just fascinated at seeing a wedding in the park).
2127 Sheridan Drive
A gorgeous bed and breakfast tat opened in 1985, Annie’s is a beautiful place to have your wedding. The gardens are gorgeous, and include a view of Lake Mendota and Warner Park. There are beautiful spruce trees, hemlocks, and in the spring there are even dogwoods flowering all around you. Enjoy the gardens year-round, a beautiful gazebo, and even a pretty little pond. It’s great for small weddings, perhaps even a simple family one, where you and your spouse can then stay the night at the inn (or your family could).
