"Most unusual request was to land on the property by helicopter. Easy answer – not allowed by the Town due to zoning." - Tami Sherry, Assistant Curator
"Llamas! We’ve had two weddings which included llamas during the celebration. Our half mile nature trail and outdoor event space perfectly accommodated the inclusion of llamas." - Maribeth Livingston, Director of Marketing

"We had one guest that wanted to get married on a hill under a couple beautiful trees behind our Stonecrop estate home, but it was too steep to set up chairs. The bride bundle dyed her own blankets with ferns and leaves, and set them up on the hill to seat wedding guests creating an intimate, rustic amphitheater. It made for a wonderfully unique ceremony that felt like a picnic." - Sarah Avery Gordon, Director of External Affairs
