Crocker Art Museum is a stunning wedding venue located in Sacramento, California. This beautiful building offers a fantastic mix between vintage and modern that caters to distinguished tastes and those who seek extravagant surroundings. The museum features local and international art pieces, allowing visitors to have a gander at gorgeous and interesting collections. This mansion began its current life in 1868 when Judge Edwin B. Crocker bought the building. The home was then renovated by architect Seth Babson, who added on a gallery building to accommodate Crocker's collection. The work on the mansion was completed in 1872, and the home took on the identity of Crocker Art Museum in 1978. It is not listed as a landmark and is registered with the National Register of Historic Places. The Teel Family Pavilion finished construction in 2010, allowing for an alternative space where the public enjoys exhibitions, the Gerald Hansen Library, Tot Land, and the Art Education Resource Room.

Everyone is impressed with the venue. It's beautiful and artistic. Sara was very easy to work with. She answered lots of questions and gave a lot of suggestions as well.Sent on 11/19/2015
The thing that's not very flexible is one hour photo shooting inside of the museum. I had some situation with check-in on a hotel earlier so I was late for the one hour session. They won't let me stay longer than the closing time of the museum. I only had 20min instead of 1hour.

Magical Evening At The Crocker Art Museum
My family and I could not be happier with the Crocker Art Museum venue and staff for our daughter's wedding in May of 2019. The ballroom provides an exquisite setting for the ceremony, while the courtyard allows for an ample cocktail reception, dinner seating and dancing. The staff at the Crocker were very responsive to our needs as the day approached, and they really kicked into gear when the big day hit. Any time i questions whether something should be done, it had already been done. No need for a wedding planner, they orchestrated the ceremony, reception, dinner, setup and breakdown. Guest from out of town were stunned at the elegance of the whole affair. With so many hotels and restaurants nearby, an entire wedding weekend can occur almost without getting into a car. The Crocker comes with only one option for catering, The Supper Club. Initially, that was a little disconcerting that there were no other options. But The Supper Club staff offers tastings and many opportunities to fine tune the menu. And their pricing is fairly reasonable. Our dinner was excellent. Crocker Art Museum was a bit more expensive than some of the other Sacramento options. But I think it was well worth it.Sent on 05/29/2019

My husband and I held our wedding ceremony in the historic ballroom at the Crocker last spring. The room is so stunning and ornate that we needed almost no extra decor for the ceremony. "Jaw-dropping" is a pretty accurate description, judging by the reaction of our guests.Sent on 08/18/2016
The staff was great to work with, the museum comfortable before the ceremony, and the pictures were incredible. We got to shoot some of our wedding photos in the galleries and they are amazing - especially because it rained all day and we couldn't take photos outside.
The location also made it a breeze for our guests to stay downtown and get to our reception.
