  • Absolutely breathtaking venue! Chris was amazing to work with and set us up perfectly night of! The only difficulties with this venue is that it is a museum so you have time restrictions for set up. (Museum is open until 4) They have a list of caterers they work with and were able to get it done. Dropping off and picking up all the decorations is a bit of a pain but totally worth it! Also you can take photos on the machines which is so cool! Can’t wait to get mine back! If you don’t have a wedding planner make sure you have a team of people to help your florist/caterer with decor setup! Oh and a parking permit is available for street parking! Overall absolutely perfect venue for our wedding day!!!
