Cayuga Nature Center - Sweet Bough Wedding Collective
Cayuga Nature Center

If you’re looking for a rustic and natural outdoor setting for your wedding day, the Nature Center is the place for you! Immerse your guests in a natural setting with full amenities, miles of trails, live animals, and fabulous nature exhibits in our historic lodge.

Begin your ceremony next to our beautiful Butterfly Garden. Enjoy cocktails under a tent in the courtyard while guests play lawn games on the hill behind the Lodge. The kids (and adults!) will love exploring TreeTops, our six six-story tree house, to get some energy out before dinner. Move inside our charming 1930s Lodge to the Great Room for dinner and dancing. After dinner, guests will appreciate perusing our exhibits on the Sun Porch.
