...distinguished by natural wonder and millions of years of geological evolution. Limestone walls glisten in this majestic underworld. A crystal clear river bubbles below.
Now imagine exchanging your wedding vows on The Bridal Altar with a glowing calcite heart. Standing among friends and family, surrounded by ancient history and the footprints of a bygone era, the venue honors the past as you step toward the future. In this unique and intimate setting, you will transcend the mundane trappings of terrestial life.
Following a tour of the cave and a boat ride on The Lake of Venus, celebrate in the homespun atmosphere of the Tudor-style Visitor Center.
