The Widener Visitors Center, an attractive former carriage house, serves as the base for your reception. (In case of inclement weather, the carriage house provides an indoor alternative for your ceremony. Your caterer is prepared to make the necessary transition flawlessly should the need arise.) You are required to use one of our approved caterers.
