About

On WeddingWire since 2013

The Chrysler Museum of Art is a wedding ceremony and reception venue in Norfolk, Virginia. This venue radiates timeless appeal, dramatic magnificence, and true elegance. Couples seeking a venue with a historic backdrop, awe-inducing architecture, and a sense of grandeur will be saying “I do” the minute they see all the Chrysler Museum of Art has to offer!

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.

Services Offered

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 wedding 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.

Location

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 - as well as stunning sunset photos. Being a renaissance-inspired building, the Chrysler Museum of Art has all the panache and high drama that lovers of European architecture will adore.

Beyond Wonderful Wedding

My husband and I got married at the Chrysler Museum of Art this past September and all we can say is WOW! Our experience from the time we decided to book the museum as our wedding venue to the actual wedding day was amazing. Everyone (the staff) we spoke/worked with was great! Our wedding included a lot of details and moving parts, and the museum definitely worked with us and our vendors so that the vision we had for our wedding could come to life and come to life it definitely did. EVERYTHING WAS BEAUTIFUL! EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT! This includes the food. The museum’s exclusive caterer, Taste Catering & Events was beyond impressive. Their food is super delicious, the people were helpful and a wonder to work with. We can go on and on about our experience, but overall, five stars across the board.

Memorable Experience

We had our wedding here a month ago & I will tell you we fell in love with the venue the first day we visited. This venue is beautiful, there are so many beautiful views for you & for your guests. We loved being able to provide our guests with cocktail hour in the art gallery so they could all be able to enjoy some of the artwork as well. Gabrielle & Jennifer were both a pleasure to work with from the very beginning all the way through til the end. Would highly recommend.
