The Iowa Arboretum is a serene location for your wedding. We have both indoor and outdoor rental facilities. Choose from the Hughes Education Center, the Beckwith Grand Pavilion, the Jones Memorial Gazebo, Willow Tree, Waterside Garden or any one of our beautiful gardens to make your day memorable. We will also keep the Hughes Education Center available at no extra cost in the event of inclement weather. Arboretum staff, working with the wedding party, will make the final decision as to ceremony location should the weather be uncooperative.
