    Our museum reception was a hit with our guests!

    Our wedding reception at the Florida Museum of Natural History was fabulous. Amber was incredibly easy to communicate with and helped make sure that everything turned out just how we envisioned. Every detail was covered from table layouts to decor placement and we did not even have to worry about it. Walking into our reception and seeing everything come together was absolutely magical. Our guests loved that they could explore the museum during the reception and the space was beautiful. I highly recommend the Florida Museum of Natural History as a venue space and cannot speak highly enough of Amber Tison and her team.

    Fun and exciting

    Ali is truly an artist. He took beautiful shots and even though he wasn’t familiar with the venue, he was up for the challenges that arose with different climates, lighting, and scenery with the venues I had chosen. He is amazing at what he does. I cannot recommend him enough.
