    Amazing Venue!!

    JCSM was THE dream venue. Rachel sent me layout suggestions a few months before our wedding and everything just fell into place. I fully trusted everything she suggested since they know the space so well. The museum is beautiful on its own and we decided to let it speak for itself. The only things we had on our reception tables were our tablecloths and beautiful flower arrangements. It was perfect! We held the ceremony and reception in the same area and Rachel and her team performed the flip during cocktail hour without any problems and in such a timely manner! Everyone at JCSM was phenomenal. We were required to use their in-house caterer, Ursula’s Catering, and the food was spectacular!! We live out of state so all our planning was done via phone and email. We loved every minute of our wedding and our venue and caterer had so much to do with that!!

    Absolutely Incredible

    Words can’t begin to express how exceptional the Jule Collins Smith museum is as a wedding venue. The space itself is breathtaking, and served as an elegant setting for our event. But I also want to flag that Rachel (the museum coordinator) is a COMPLETE JOY to work with - a professional, considerate, creative, organized event magician guru who answered all of our (many, many) questions, provided incredible insights and helped make our wedding day a truly special event. From toasts in the beautiful atrium to dining in the spacious gallery, from the dance-party on the terrace to taking our photos in the elegant gardens - choosing Jule Collins as our venue was one of the best decisions we made in the wedding planning process!
