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.

Forever in Love with Crocker
If you want professionals helping you create a magical wedding day, go with the Crocker Art Museum. Sabrina and the team at the Crocker were amazing. I was going to have a HUGE wedding. My fiancé and I loved what the Crocker provided. We truly saw ourselves there. A sleek modern structure that we could play up with hints of modern and cultural elements. Their passion for our wedding made me feel like they were family. My heart will forever be with this beautiful museum. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to hold my wedding here due to COVID-19. Nonetheless, the team there worked tirelessly to try to salvage our wedding.Sent on 08/12/2020
In the end, we went with a small wedding at our home to keep everyone we care about safe. I’m hoping that once things get better I could take my wedding pictures there. Somehow, someway, I want the Museum to be a part of my memories.
Sabrina, you’re amazing. Thank you for becoming someone we could rely on during a turbulent time. You were kind, caring, and knowledgeable. We truly feel like you became a friend through this all. We hope to meet up again after all this.
Do yourself a favor - get married at the Crocker. Invite me also. I need to live vicariously through you.
Crocker Art Museum's reply:Thank you, Julia. Congratulations on your marriage!! You and Omar were such a pleasure to work with during the time we were given and I definitely share in the friendly sentiment. We hope to see you at the Museum and would love to have our art as your post wedding photo session back drop! Keep in touch :)

Beautiful Corporate Event
The Crocker Art Museum has been a wonderful venue for our 500 person corporate event for multiple years. The event coordinators are wonderful to work with and the venue has a lot to offer - indoor & outdoor areas, onsite caterer, wonderful art for the guests, easy location for travel. We love the elegance but clean slate of their event areas, that we get to deck out to our theme.Sent on 11/01/2019
Crocker Art Museum's reply:Never a dull moment with your group Brianna! We have loved every year having you. Can't wait for the next theme!

Gorgeous venue with exceptional staff
If you want an unforgettable wedding without stressing over details, then this is the venue for you. I opted not to hire a wedding planner. Sabrina and the Crocker team handled all the details so I could sit back and watch my dream wedding come to fruition. I am sincerely touched by their level of professionalism and passion for creating a wedding that uniquely captured our vision. I couldn’t count the number of times my guests commented that it was the most beautiful venue they’ve seen. From planning to execution, this venue and the Crocker’s dedicated staff exceeded our expectations.Sent on 10/23/2019
Crocker Art Museum's reply:Sandra and Scott! I cannot express enough how much you two kept surprising me in the very best of ways. We loved having you and your energetic, Latin flared families here. You all knew how to party! XOXO
