Get Married at the Nature Center!

A natural setting for your wedding.

We provide the space, you provide the vision.

Whether you’re planning an indoor or outdoor ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner or elopement, we can accommodate. Our 200-acre property and beautiful Living Building Petal Certified building provides the perfect setting for your dream day.

Weddings may be scheduled up to two years in advance. Certain dates may be blacked out for ICNC programs or special events. A $1,000 deposit is required at time of booking with the remainder due one week prior to the reservation.

Why Indian Creek Nature Center?

Our indoor spaces include: an auditorium with seating for up to 120 people seated, a full kitchen, classrooms, conference room, exhibit hall, and bird room. Outdoors, we have a deck and patio area, amphitheatre, and of course, many acres of beautiful landscape, including woodlands, prairie and wetlands.

We offer a variety of packages, starting as low as $500. Our most popular package includes the entire building for the wedding AND rehearsal dinner at $3,200 (add-ons available).

Our space is designed to be accessible for people of all ages and abilities.

We have a number of caterers we recommend and are familiar with our facility, but if you have someone specific in mind that isn’t already “on our list,” all we ask is that they don’t use styrofoam and consider ways to be eco-friendly (after all, our building is one of the most sustainable in the world!). Beer and wine is permitted.

Our building — one of the most sustainable in the world — brings the best of the outdoors in with an abundance of natural light, beautiful wood and stone elements, and a stunning water feature in our exhibit hall. In addition to the natural beauty of the space, your guests can enjoy various exhibits including the interactive watershed table, the all-glass bird viewing room, and the touchscreen energy portal that demonstrates the efficiency of the building.

Nestled between prairie and a backdrop of woodlands, the outdoor space features a large string-lit patio, wetland deck, outdoor classroom where children can play, and woodland amphitheater.

ICNC made our wedding day dreams come true! The beautiful grounds, patio and facilities were perfect for our family & friends to enjoy themselves. The staff were great to work with, helping answer any questions we had leading up to the big day. The natural prairie setting and patio was exactly what we were looking for in an outdoor reception space and added to the magic of the night. We were lucky to also use the indoor space for our dance floor & band to continue our celebration in the much needed air conditioning. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. Our guests still tell us how much they enjoyed the event!
