A Natural Paradise is Your Perfect Wedding Spot

Why not choose a natural and positively perfect setting for your wedding? Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve offers 170-acres in Goshen, Oldham County, Kentucky, about 25 minutes outside of Louisville. The Nature Preserve is a paradise for wedding couples, families and friends!

Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve’s grounds are idyllic for a wedding ceremony at any time of the year. With the gentle rolling hills, water features, forest, and open areas, there is a special spot for every couple. The 2-acre Woodland Garden is the newest favorite place for wedding ceremonies. It features arched bridges, beautiful plantings, a creek, pond, and waterfall. We would be happy to give you a special tour of favorite wedding locations to ensure that you find a perfect place for your special day.

It is natural that a wedding at the Preserve is “green” and nature-friendly. Couples are encouraged to plant a dogwood tree or purchase a “lovebird” bluebird box to symbolize their new union.

It felt as though the trees were singing and as we looked around everyone had smiles on their faces—it was certainly a day to be remembered … it was perfect! – Happy newlyweds at Creasey Mahan!

Consider enjoying the natural paradise at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve for your wedding day.

Choose birdseed and bubbles in place of rice or glitter

Encourage carpooling and cycling for guests and engage an old fashioned horse carriage in place of gas powered vehicles

Do not use pyrotechnics

Plant a tree, adopt a tree, sponsor a birdhouse, or organize a day of service
