Imagine walking down a brick path, with white doves soaring overhead and
butterflies dancing in the breeze, in a beautiful flower filled garden and
the sound of a water falling in the background. Your friends and family are
surrounding you on your way to meet the one you are going to spend the rest
of your life with. You are in the Victorian Veranda Country Inn Wedding
Garden to start a very happy ever after...
The Garden was created to provide an intimate setting for your wedding. Many
flowers have been included that are a natural attractor of butterflies,
their presence adds a magical touch to your already special occasion. Your
vows are exchanged near the garden waterfall that creates
a wonderful sound of water falling into the pond below.
The Wedding Garden
The wedding garden is surrounded by towering cottonwood trees providing
shade for below. These trees provide a pleasant sound as their leaves move
in the Kansas breeze.
Early in the spring the forsythia bushes provide a bright yellow splash of
color; this is soon followed
shortly by hundreds of white blooming irises.
The garden has a number of arbors and a pergola to provide an added
dimension and also provide a support for many different climbing plants.
Numerous hanging baskets allow the garden colors to be changed periodically
plus adding another element of beauty.
Veranda Wedding Garden is located just out the door of the Inn so you have
only a few short steps to your very special moment. The Big White Barn for
your reception likewise adjoins the garden - everything is very convenient.
The staff here at the Victorian Veranda Country Inn takes great pride in the
wedding garden and is constantly working to keep the flowers beautiful and
the grounds maintained.
The Patio Garden
The patio and patio garden area is a wonderful area for a informal gathering
or other activities such as a rehearsal dinner.
The Monarch Garden
Monarch Garden Established
Our Monarch Garden this fall (2018) had many thousands of butterflies and a large percentage of them were Monarchs. It was so much fun and enjoyment to see them landing on the wildflowers and Zinnias in addition to floating in the garden with such grace and beauty. We had put out milkweed and planted a number of nectar providing plants. The wildflowers also provided wonderful settings for photos. Now it is our goal to receive the Monarch Flyway designation given by Monarch Watch program located at the University of Kansas. Application has been submitted.
