    Gorgeous Museum Wedding- a Planner's Perspective

    As a wedding planner, I visit and produce events at all types of venues and with all types of coordination teams. Nikki at The Brooks Museum is fabulous and has made my experience there priceless! The first wedding we produced at The Brooks was complicated, detail and timing wise, and Nikki was there to help in every way she could to make it work for the vendor team and the couple! Since that successful event, I have brought many brides to tour The Brooks and she has made them feel special and excited about their big day! I cannot wait to have another event there!

    Sophisticated Spirited Venue

    Nikki Lekhy and the Brooks Museum were wonderful to work with. They were more than accommodating throughout the planning process and our guests stayed until they absolutely had to leave. The museum was a sophisticated venue for our guests to enjoy and everyone loved dancing and looking over the park on the terrace. It was the perfect setting for a magical wedding reception. We will never forget it!

    If you want one of the most stunning weddings in Memphis, the Brooks Museum is the place to do it. Between the Holly Court ceremony and the reception throughout the museum, I was blown away by our photos, and our guests all said the same. Laura was incredible - she came in at the Brooks during a big time of transition (the interim person before her was not good at all), and was so thoughtful and helpful during the whole planning process. She made it completely unnecessary for us to hire any day-of coordinator, as she was there the whole time making sure things went exactly as planned. The food was excellent (according to our guests - I didn't eat much as the bride!), and there was plenty of it. I can't imagine having our special day anywhere else!
