    My ceremony at the Delaware Art Museum in the beautiful labyrinth will be something my guest and I reflect on for many years to come. The beautiful scenery looked like something you would find in a painting on the wall inside of the museum. Ceremony seating is often times difficult to execute because the larger the number of guests, the harder it is for guests to have what they would consider a good seat. In the labyrinth, every seat was the best seat in the house!

    While the location in itself was above our expectations, the service really took our experience to the next level. Following our ceremony, we had a cake reception in which the staff made sure my guests were hydrated and could enjoy a snack before heading to the reception. Even when we experienced small technical difficulties before the ceremony began, Delaware Art Museum staff worked immediately to solve our issues and did not hesitate to be on standby the remainder of my event.

    On top of all this, I thoroughly enjoyed working with the event coordinator, Lauren McMahon. Her amazing ideas, patience and willingness to make this day special will be the reason I come back to the Delaware Art Museum for my next celebration. She made it clear from our first communication that she would do whatever was in her power to make our day special and my husband and I truly believe she went above and beyond to do just that.

    We has our wedding on 4/22 at the Art Museum. I could not have asked for a better experience. I knew we were in the right hands the moment I met with the Catering Sales Manager. She made me feel wonderful, she was open to my questions and suggestions and she was extremely helpful with all aspects of the wedding, from the food to the goodies in the bathroom. I would not want to have my wedding anywhere else. The ambiance was unbeatable and the food and drinks were top notch. We have no complaints and I really hope to be invited to a wedding at this venue in the future so I can enjoy it as a guest. Thanks Lauren and Toscana, we love you guys!

    The Delaware Art Museum is a perfect backdrop for a gorgeous wedding reception! The terrace and sculpture gardens are perfect for cocktails. I love the white walls and beautiful Dale Chihuly glass that can be seen both inside and outside the museum. The staff is professional and the space is perfect for a reception.
