    10/10 Perfect Baltimore Wedding Venue

    It's difficult to know how to start this review, since the Baltimore Museum of Industry was the absolute perfect venue for our wedding. It's still incredible to me that we were married in such a special place. The outdoor location on the point for the ceremony was beyond what we had envisioned for the day, and we were comforted to know that even if it rained, we could still get married in such a beautiful location inside (those windows!).

    From day one, Kelley from BMI was incredible to work with -- answering all of our questions, helping us prepare for the big day, and on the day-of being SO attentive. One example: Very few couples can say they actually ate on their wedding day, and Kelley made sure we did. :)

    The museum itself is such an amazing space and I need to go back again to really take in the exhibits fully as a guest. Our guests loved walking around the museum during cocktail hour and we felt so proud to put Baltimore's best foot forward for our out-of-town guests, showing them the history of industry in Baltimore. We even got to put a video together to play in the theater during the cocktail hour, which was very special. This venue is absolutely everything I dreamed of for our big day and we don't have enough good things to say about getting married at the BMI!

    Best venue ever!

    BMI is the greatest wedding venue ever! You can have your ceremony overlooking the Inner Harbor, cocktail hour in the museum (so that guests can check out all of the awesome exhibits), and reception in a beautiful and fun space with beautiful windows and huge dance floor. We received so many compliments on the venue - especially from our out of town guests. We even had some guests go back to the BMI the next day because they couldn't get enough! Also, you'll get to work with Kelley at the BMI. Kelley is so positive, responsive, and thoughtful. She covers all of the details, and she ensures that your day goes as smoothly as possible. You should definitely book the BMI now!

    Incredible wedding venue!

    The Baltimore Museum of Industry was the perfect venue for our wedding! We knew we wanted something different than the typical hotel ballroom, and the BMI absolutely delivered! Luckily, the weather cooperated, and we were able to have our ceremony outside right on the harbor. Our guests were able to see all the exhibits during cocktail hour, and museum staff was accessible to help answer questions. One of the best parts of having a wedding at the BMI is that you don’t have to decorate; the Decker Gallery exhibits speak for themselves! Lastly, the event staff was excellent to work with, especially Kelley. She was patient, attentive, and supported us throughout the entire process. It was more than a wedding; it was an experience. Our guests cannot stop talking about how great our venue was!
