    Absolutely Incredible and Easy!

    EAA was the perfect venue for our wedding. We wanted something out of the ordinary and we achieved that at EAA. The venue is immaculate and the entire staff from our coordinator to the bar staff was absolutely top notch. Kelly Z. was easy to work with, so organized, and was helpful throughout every step in our planning process. I can't say enough good things about how amazing our wedding experience was at EAA.

    Unique and Simple

    The staff at EAA was extremely easy to work with and everything went flawless the day of. The museum is such a fun venue to have, your guests will never get bored. Also, the lighting in the hanger for the party was awesome! Wouldn't have changed anything, was a perfect party. We ran out of the keg I wanted during cocktail hour (completely underestimated our guests drinking habbits :)) but the staff went in their storage to find another keg of a different beer so the party never stopped!

    EAA Aviation Museum's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words, Julie!
    We pride ourselves in a one-of-a-kind experience that will never leave your guests bored. I'm glad you liked our Eagle Hangar! And on a fun note, our bar staff is committed to fun. :)

    Amazing venue

    We can not say enough good things about having our wedding reception at EAA. We had our cocktail hour in the museum near the Spirit of St. Louis exhibit and had our reception in the Eagle Hanger. Our guests were entertained the entire evening and commented many times on how unique and fun the venue was! The museum takes on a whole new feel at night with the special lighting and festive ambience. Each member of the staff was so great to work with, especially our event coordinator. She took care of many details from contacting our vendors to finalize details to making sure everything was set up just right! She was quick to respond and provided us with all kinds of information and options throughout the entire planning process. We are so glad we chose EAA for our wedding!

    EAA Aviation Museum's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words, Kate!
    Our Events Team loves to do the little touches to make it spectacular. The uplighting of the airplanes in the Eagle really turns the hangar into something magical!

Thank you for considering EAA as your wedding venue! My name is Amelia Abraham Twing (I recently added the "Twing" after my wedding this last August!) and I am EAA's Senior Event Coordinator. I've helped couples plan their big day (as well as many other types of events) for five years. Because I recently went through the process myself, I love helping couples through the wedding planning process. It might be a bit overwhelming, but that's what I'm here for!
When you're planning your wedding, I help with all things venue related. I'd love to get to know you and your fiancé and help you create an experience that neither you nor your guests will ever forget!
