The Venue

Did you know - that the wooden pillars were grown ON OUR property?  And the piers below the concrete is 7 feet into the ground?

Set among century old White Oak trees and upland forest, an ageless Timber Frame Pavilion stands guard over the water ponds and botanical gardens. The lumber in the pavilion was actually nurtured, harvested , sawed and joined by peg from property owned and built by Barry 20 years ago. This turn of the century farm offers its guests many amenities, offered in house to make their occasion as special and intimate as nature will allow in its grandeur. The amphitheater, lighted patio with a 30 foot grill, koi pond, children's play area, photo booth and restrooms are steps away from the pavilion.

Located on 40 acres of land, Alpine Park and Gardens is one of Mid- Missouri’s evolving botanical parks and wildlife conservatories, that boasts extremely unique and comfortable surroundings. There are nearby hotels, only 15 minutes away from Columbia, MO. We take precautions to safeguard our guests' safety, however each guest is here at their own risk. Please remember, this is an outdoor venue, and appropriate shoe wear is advised.

Please be considerate as well for animals ( includes service animals as well ) as Prior permission from Alpine Park Mgmt to bring an animal to enter the park, must be obtained. All visiting animals must be leashed/ controlled while on site . NO animal is to be left in a vehicle too. We are Dog / cat lovers as well ! We have two very spoiled Golden / lab kids as well.

Wedding Location

The Pavilion yard has the photo booth ready for use -
a highlight at every event! We have a huge patio that is lighted at night, along with citronella tiki torches. In the mood for Smores...we have a designated bon fire pit too ! Note: We take precautions to safeguard the safety of our guests, and each guest is responsible for their actions or lack of and that is with out saying ! We do have a children's play area too! Just remember, that children need to be supervised by their parent/guardian at all times that too is without saying - Alpine is not a child care center but will enforce educating children on their actions if warranted.
