Smart (& cheap!) wedding venue

I used to work in this university building with its gorgeous travertine facade. It's listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is in desperate need of seismic retrofitting, since it was built long ago.

(I still miss the large windows and sunny balcony of my former office almost every day.)

Each day, I'd walk past this ginkgo tree, ridiculously colorful with a showy golden display in autumn. (I miss the tree, too. These days, my walk to work has lots more panhandlers, and many fewer trees.)
Although I attended a wonderful graduation celebration on these steps, it never dawned on me that other celebrations could take place there, too.
Some friends will marry there in May, with a small number of family members in attendance, for only the cost of liability insurance. Genius!

A university campus could be just the ticket for a scenic, intimate outdoor wedding. (Why didn't we think of this??!?!)

It is a beautiful place to have a wedding. I can think of a few other universities with beautiful landscapes for weddings. What a great idea to look into for small weddings.

University and college campuses are a great place to get married. I got married at a private women's college -- they had lots of beautiful old buildings and lovely grounds.
