My husband and I decided to have our wedding ceremony at the Akron Art Museum, and I can honestly say it was the BEST decision we made. Looking back on the wedding day after a few weeks have passed, we both agreed that our ceremony was our favorite part of the whole day. First off, the wedding coordinators at the Akron Art Museum were the most genuine, accommodating, kind, and awesome people. Katie and Sarah are amazing! They went out of their way to help us through the planning process, as well as to make sure we were 100% satisfied with our day. They were so helpful and also helped us to stay organized. Our ceremony was held in the green space outside and it was so gorgeous! It allowed for a unique, unforgettable entrance that all of our guests loved. Another huge plus for having your ceremony or wedding at the museum is the wonderful photo opportunities. The inside and outside of the museum both have great locations for photos. The architecture is beautiful and dramatic- we just loved it! As an added bonus, we felt as though the price for renting the museum for our ceremony was very reasonable. I would recommend the Akron Art Museum to anyone planning their wedding in the Akron area. The Akron Art Museum will always hold a special place in my heart, and I can never thank our wedding coordinators enough for all that they did for us.Sent on 06/12/2021

Akron Art Museum is second to none!
The Akron Art Museum and their entire staff were incredible to work with. We held our reception at AAM on May 8th, 2021 after postponing our original date with them (9/12/2020) due to COVID. Katie and her team were flexible and accommodating throughout the planning process and handled every challenge thrown at them with grace and an open mindset. We were always provided honest answers and were always given numerous options and different strategies to adapt our wedding reception to meet any restrictions or health guidelines, while still meeting our expectations and fitting with the vision and atmosphere we wanted to provide our guests. We have received endless compliments from all of our wedding guests and friends on how beautiful the space was - from the architecture and the decor, to the content of the art galleries, to the floor-plan layout at the Art Museum. This was made possible by our incredible vendors and the thoughtfulness of Katie at the Art Museum. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, listened to exactly what we wanted, and helped us achieve our plans with incredible attention to detail and a creative mindset. I cannot recommend Akron Art Museum enough.Sent on 06/01/2021
