Tucked away in the woodland gardens, the Hughes Pavilion is a beautiful facility that can be transformed to fit any mood. The large skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows of this attractive brick building offer ample light and a panoramic view of the gardens, and the surrounding terraces allow your event to spill outdoors. The Hughes Pavilion is ideal for wedding receptions and rehearsal dinners, luncheons, dinner parties, and special corporate meetings and events.
