The Gardens boardwalk hosts an enlarged platform for small weddings and events (between Kiosks 13 & 14). The Freeborn Chapel has served the community for events, weddings, and funerals for over 115 years. The old Chapel has been fully restored, including original fir floors, altar area, and pews. The Living History Farm has hosted weddings for almost that long (its house was formerly a restaurant). The adjoining Bonhoeffer Hall faces a forest of glorious indigenous trees and can be used for both ceremonies and receptions.
The Chapel can accommodate 80 seated guests; Bonhoeffer Hall occupancy is 125 guests, its basement 70. The latter 2 have TV screens that allow guests to view ceremonies in the Old Chapel. The outdoor patio and grounds can entertain these 205 guests if weather allows. All allow for recording to DVD and Ustreaming of events to anywhere in the world.
