Our dear friends were recently married here, and we were heavily involved with the set-up of the wedding. This was a wedding with a lot of DIY touches, and the staff at Irvine Nature center could not have been more wonderful with every random request that we made. I cannot overemphasize how great they were to interact with. They were cheerful, helpful, and made the whole process as easy as it could have been. It was a beautiful venue for a wedding with a nice big tent outside for the party, and a wonderful place to explore some exhibits before and during the party. Would love to come back for a walk on a nice, normal day next time we are in town. :)

We had our wedding here and it was incredible. Anytime we had questions, the staff was quick to respond and help out in any way they could. Very laid back (in a good way) and accommodating.
