Facilities and Capacity
The Chrysler Museum of Art, a renaissance-inspired building that is sure to drop jaws and impassion hearts with its elaborate architecture, accommodates up to 220 seated guests. Couples will never forget saying their vows and enjoying a reception in Huber Court, the impressive atrium that is both the entryway to the museum and the entryway to the rest of your married life. Magnificent features of this atrium include renaissance-inspired archways, dark wood frame work, polished marble floors, a grandiose double staircase and a high glass-paned ceiling for natural light (enjoy bright sunlight for a daytime wedding, and celebrate an evening reception under the stars). Couples who prefer their sun and starlight outdoors may choose to have an outdoor ceremony in one of two breathtaking gardens. These gardens offer the dramatic backdrop of the museum’s high walls, the shade of lush green trees, open manicured lawns for plein-air appeal and a classic fountain. These gardens make for excellent photo opportunities before, during and after your special day.
Chiavari-style chairs, tables, silverware and china are all-inclusive to a five-hour rental package with the Chrysler Museum of Art. Couples getting married in Huber Court are also granted one hour of access to the gallery or garden areas, making for a wedding experience that is culturally enriching and explorative. A bridal suite complete with vanity lighting and perfect for pre-ceremony photography is also available. Other more general services include setup and cleanup, as well as all essential staffing.
The Chrysler Museum of Art is located in Historic Ghent, overlooking the Hague Inlet of the Elizabeth River, which offers a timeless and stunning aesthetic. Being a renaissance-inspired building, the Chrysler Museum of Art has all the panache and high drama that lovers of European architecture will adore.

We loved our wedding ceremony and reception at the Chrysler Museum of Art and are so happy with our decision to celebrate with our friends and family there. As a bride who is also a wedding vendor, I have a lot of experience with weddings and wanted to get married out of town so that the day didn't feel like a work day. The museum was perfect and their team was wonderful to work with. We were nervous that we didn't really have an option when it came to selecting food, but we couldn't have been more pleased with the caterer, our guest kept commenting on how great everything was. We also had an extra special cocktail hour in the glass studio with the most spectacular performance put on by their awesome team. They really set the upbeat entertaining mood for the night and was one of the major reasons we booked the venue. We couldn't be happier with how our beautiful day went and we loved the planning precess as well. If you book the Chrysler for your wedding, you will not only have a beautiful setting, but a great experience as well!

BEST Wedding Venue!
I could not have pictured a more beautiful setting for my wedding than the The Chrysler Museum. I wanted a romantic, unique setting for our big day and the museum was absolutely perfect. Not only are the spaces gorgeous, but that staff is wonderful as well. Everyone at the museum is so kind and easy to work with. They really go above and beyond to ensure your day goes off without a hitch. Our guests were seriously blown away by the museum and we received SO many compliments. Thank you Mary, Danny, the security team, and everyone else who worked so hard to ensure we had the most magical day!

Chrysler Museum of Art was my dream venue and I am still so happy my husband and I were able to have our wedding there. Mary was great throughout the entire process and even helped with rehearsal when my DOC wasn't there and I didn't know they needed to be there. The museum really knows how to run a wedding and ensure things go smoothly which of course makes it much less stressful for the bride and groom! The museum also includes so much with the facility rental they really are a great value!Sent on 07/13/2018
