When a local coupled started planning their guest list, they decided so many of their friends and family had children they needed to ensure their wedding was a kid-friendly event.

Knowing Creative Adventure Lab specializes in hands-on, immersive activities for youth & families, naturally they reached out to see if we could help create a unique, all-ages event.


The event was taking place at Smokestack, a well-known creative hangout in Dubuque, IA. Knowing space would be limited, we delivered 4 portable innovation stations, part of our Kendall Hunt Play Lab, and set them up in various nooks and crannies throughout the 2nd floor reception space. The stations gave guests at the reception casual encounters with playful, creativity-building activities.

Having the Creative Adventure Lab stations was one of the best decisions we made about the wedding. We heard from MANY people that it was the most kid-friendly wedding they have ever been to. The stations made it easy for both kids and their accompanying adults to have a good time and enjoy the wedding.

A wedding is already a celebration, so adding some fun, play-based activities for guests to enjoy is just another example of how you can enjoy our Mobile Lab activities.
