I grew up in the area, but didn't get to the Observatory until I was an adult. My then-fiance and I went to one of the public stargazing nights as one of our early dates. It was amazing. The staff were universally knowledgeable and kind and worked to ensure that everyone at the event had a good time. They were attentive to people of all ages, and worked to include everyone, very young kids to the more mature folks. The facility itself has a rich, interesting history.
About a year later, Mike and I had our wedding at the Observatory. The staff were again, unfailingly kind and helpful. We had a small wedding (the Observatory can't host a big one really), It was beautiful. We had a sunset wedding, so that we could have stargazing and dessert afterward (in lieu of a more typical reception). They worked with our caterer to allow dinner to occur before the wedding (we had children and other guests with blood sugar issues that wouldn't want to wait on the food). We had 4 volunteers working our wedding: 2 tour leaders and 2 general facilitators. One of the volunteers toted food outside for a couple of disabled guests, whose wheelchair wouldn't fit in the elevator. (Although I had checked for the presence of an elevator for these guests, I hadn't accounted for the non-standard size of the wheelchair involved.) The volunteers handled this glitch with aplomb, and no one was made to feel bad or awkward.
A few older guests told me later that the volunteers had escorted them down to the bathrooms, because the volunteers noticed that some of the guests felt a little unsteady on the stairs (old building, uneven step sizes). How nice is that?
The director let us borrow any items that we needed, for the caterer to use (tables, chairs, giant buckets for icing down the drinks, etc.)
The astronomy programs after the wedding were really fun (everybody saw Saturn in the big telescope, so that was thrilling) and a surprising number of the older guests participated in the tour-of-the-universe walk. The volunteers brought out a portable telescope that worked nicely for our disabled friends and some of the kids. I was really happy that everyone had such a fun time.
This is a small observatory, but it has the oldest, still-in-use wooden telescope in the country!
I highly recommend the Observatory for both stargazing AND weddings :)
