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.

Ideal Wedding Venue
Walking into the Chrysler I knew it would be the perfect setting for the vision I was looking to have for my wedding. It was the perfect backdrop for both the ceremony and reception. So many beautiful locations for pictures. It was very unique to have the gallery open during cocktail hour for my guest and they all loved it! I would highly recommend this venue. The staff was very professional and accommodating to my vision!Sent on 10/09/2019
