The Blanton and its staff was perfect for our wedding. They were so clear and professional when asking questions and getting arrangements made, and I could not have asked for a more beautiful setting. They open up the downstairs visiting gallery during the reception, which was SO fun. Made for a super unique, grand but also very intimate wedding.Sent on 09/19/2019

The Blanton was a beautiful backdrop for our wedding! We coordinated a "flip" of the space with our planner (Wild Sky Events) and used the main atrium both for our ceremony and reception. Everything went off without a hitch and the staff were friendly and helpful throughout. Having an amazing photographer helps as well (Sophie Epton Photography) but I'd highly recommend the Blanton for your wedding, especially if you have a wedding planner because everything will need to be rented and brought in (it's a museum, not a restaurant or event venue!). I appreciate how accommodating the Blanton staff were, particularly with the large paper flower backdrop we brought in. My parents had hand-made it and the Blanton appreciated it as a work of art and let us move it in early to minimize risk of damage if it had been moved along with everything else coming in later. I don't think a whole lot of people know of the Blanton as a wedding venue, so it's a lovely and somewhat unique place to hold your wedding. I would highly recommend it!Sent on 07/07/2018

Stacey and her team at the Blanton are incredible. It was by far the most helpful and professional staff I have dealt with in a really long time.Sent on 05/30/2014
