About Chrysler Museum of Art

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 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.

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

    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!

    Wow, what a stunning venue! I could not be happier with my decision to get married at the Chrysler Museum of Art. The entire staff is so professional and accommodating, I enjoyed every interaction with them! My guests truly had a blast at cocktail hour in one of the art galleries and were pleasantly surprised with the transformation of Huber Court from the ceremony to the reception. Everything went off without a hitch! I would highly recommend the Chrysler Museum of Art to any bride looking for an astonishing venue with an amazing staff!!
