We had an incredible wedding at deCordova. The experience working with them was enjoyable. Everyone was responsive, helpful and professional. We had our wedding outdoors in August. Our cocktail hour was on the expansive and beautiful terrace, and our reception in the Dewey gallery. We also made use of the grounds for photos (and were lent a golf cart to get around quickly!) as well as thas roof deck.
We hope this museum lives on for many generations to come!

My husband and I have always loved coming to the deCordova Sculpture garden and museum because it is a wonderful place to explore, view contemporary art, and to get away from the city. As a wedding venue it was a great choice for us as it had both the natural setting he wanted and a contemporary quasi urban feel I wanted. In addition, the customer service we received was amazing. Jevon Biffinger was an incredible event manager. She answered all of our questions promptly, calmed my anxieties easily, and was warm and professional in all of our interactions. During our walk through, it was easy to envision how everything would run for the event (even in the case of rain) and so I felt so much more at ease once the day came around. On the day of the event itself, everything was perfect. All the staff were professional and warm, and I couldn't ask for anything more. The price tag is a bit steep, but I think it's worth it if you want an unforgettable event at a truly unique venue and amazing customer service.

The deCordova Museum is an exceptionally beautiful space for a wedding. Initially we had plans to have our ceremony on the rooftop terrace, which provides breathtaking views of the nearby lake and surrounding woods. However, it was drizzling on the day of our wedding so we were moved indoors into the main gallery, which turned out to be perfect for our small (65 guests) wedding. The cocktail hour was held in the open space near the galleries, and the reception was held in the Dewey Gallery. The creative uses of all the spaces really made our wedding feel luxurious. Even the rain was a welcome surprise - the woods were transformed into a romantic, foggy dream, creating a surreal background for our pictures.
Jessica Kriley, the events director, could not be more professional and was an absolute delight to work with. She is extremely flexible and easy-going, and creatively constructive, helping you make important decisions. She was punctual and responsive, always answering our questions quickly and completely. The entire planning process with her was absolutely flawless. HIGHLY recommended!
