Wings Of The Tropics

Our 7,200 square-foot tropical forest is home to 1,600 butterflies worldwide and displays 200 plant species. The tropical climate makes it perfect for ceremony gatherings. 

Please note that the conservatory is darker in the evenings from November to mid-March with the time change. Additional lighting in the conservatory is in place, and more lighting options can be explored with our preferred vendors.
