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!Sent on 11/16/2018

The entire team, from the Events Coordination Team to the Service Staff that set up the venue was flawless. VERY happy with our wedding at the Fergus Chapel lawn, it was our dream. NOTE: if you want to get married outside there is easy access power outside for sound systems. We were worried about that but they had it covered.Sent on 08/15/2016

Kelly did a great job coordinating with all of our vendors and for the helicopter entrance. We had very little to worry about leading up to and the day of which made everything very enjoyable.Sent on 06/04/2016
We booked the Fergus chapel for the ceremony and Eagle Hangar for our reception. The venue itself is amazing and all of our guests were blown away by how unique and beautiful everything was there.
We were provided an event coordinator who was amazing and took all the worry away before and during the event. They have worked with many vendors in the area and once you have your vendors booked, EAA takes care of coordinating a lot of the details so you do not have to go back and forth.
The venue fee may be expensive to some but it is well worth it for a venue that is so unique and the quality of service you will receive from the event coordinator.
EAA Aviation Museum's reply:Thanks Mathieu! We do our best to make sure your big day is taken care of so you can focus on the important things - like getting married!
