    When my fiancé (now husband) and I were searching for a ceremony location, we wanted to find something that would fit our vintage, classic theme, and the Columbus Museum of Art perfectly fit our vision in every way! He is an artist, and owns his own art business, and so this venue was absolutely perfect for us! From the moment we met Katie Laux, who was our event coordinator, we knew we were in good hands! I absolutely LOVE her!! She is such a wonderful and fantastic person, and that truly shows in her work!! She always responded to my emails within hours, and helped us bring our dream ceremony to life! Our ceremony was in the Derby Court, and it would not have been more beautiful. The sky lighting was the best part – the sun shone through on us throughout the ceremony! Our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the ceremony was. Katie’s motto for the entire weekend (both rehearsal and ceremony) was “You don’t have to think, I do the thinking for you” and it could not have been more true! She was so organized and orchestrated everything for us, between the set up and flow of the rehearsal, organizing the readers, helping out our officiant in any way, and helping our photographer orchestrate my fiancé and I giving each other gifts prior to the ceremony without seeing each other! I cannot say ENOUGH good things about Katie and the Columbus Museum of Art! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding!! It was truly our dream wedding!

    This was the most beautiful venue ever. My photos and videos were perfection.

    Katie, the event manager makes your day run so smooth, she helped contact all my vendors and tell them where to go, and day of she helped coordinate. She responded to my 100s of e-mails and was AWESOME.

    Your guests even get to walk around the museum all night. We also did cocktail hour at the museum, so no one had to leave at all.

    HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend!
