  • I was a bride who’s wedding was affected by Covid! I had to postpone my wedding with my other venue for 2021. My fiancé and I still wanted to get married despite of it all. Luckily my mom found out that the Ruthe Jackson Center was offering their garden for free to couples who’s weddings were postponed/cancelled due to Covid. My ceremony was so beautiful and perfect! I had nothing to worry about just show up! Due to social distancing we could have only so many people there but I wouldn’t have it any other way! Thank you again Ruthe Jackson Center for offering your beautiful venue to us and made our day even more special!
