This is a great and unique venue. My husband and I didn't want a banquet hall or the typical spot. The Bushnell has a great space with a beautiful Chahuly glass chandelier that looks gorgeous at night. It also gives you a great opportunity to take some pictures in the Park and by the Capital building.
Cathy Stephens at the Bushnell is the best! The day of your event, you don't have to think of anything - she takes care of making sure everything and everyone is in the right place at the right time. We forgot the garter and Cathy and her colleague Angela fashioned a (very stylish!) one out of ribbon and decorations - that was frankly better than the one I bought! They are also very flexible in terms of seating arrangements, will let you stop by to check out the room, and are happy to answer your questions at a moment's notice, even if she is on vacation. She made sure our party was well-cared for and that the guests had everything they needed - several guests commented that there was always a staff member asking if they needed anything over the course of the evening. Please note that the Bushnell works exclusively with Max's Catering for all its events, which was great - you can bring in an independent vendor for your wedding cake.
