Our wedding at Architectural Artifacts was more that we could have hoped for!! We used both the atrium space and the new loft space for our ceremony and reception. The sequence of events flowed wonderfully through the space and didn't require any "flipping" of rooms. We picked this venue because of it's unique character and the wonderful assortment of artifacts. For decor we added very little and let the venue's beautiful artifacts take center stage. I would note that since this is an operational store, artifacts and layout are likely to change from the date you book until the actual event, we loved that aspect of the space as it was constantly changing. A couple looking for everything to exactly a certain way should be aware of this going in. We experienced a staff change a couple months before our wedding and the transition was handled very professionally, the new staff did a wonderful job of catering to our needs and coordinating with our vendors on the day of.

We had our daughter's September wedding and reception at AE and it was absolutely perfect. It's an amazing magical space with an urban chic feel, exposed brick and super high ceilings; the perfect backdrop for our event. We had the ceremony outside in the courtyard, followed by cocktail hour in the lounge area off the courtyard. The dinner and dancing was in the atrium on the north side of the space, with sit down dinner and a large dance area. Christine and Micah were both very professional and easy to work with, and the entire event was perfect. We really lucked out with the weather and were able to have the ceremony outside but one of the things I really liked about AE is the rain plan would have required no compromises. There are several indoor ceremony options that are all viable and beautiful.

This was a fabulous venue for us. Unique, Fun, and Spacious. The staff is very helpful, Rachel is the director of the venue and is super nice and easy to work with. She definitely put us at ease. She has been in the wedding industry for quite some time and helped us to feel confident in our vendors. After our wedding we have gotten tons and tons of compliments on the venue, people were very impressed. And, our band sounded great with the high ceilings!
