Amazing venue made a wonderful day even better

We heard of Larz Anderson Museum from a friend as a possible option for our wedding and we are so glad we decided to move forward with it! Karen was an awesome venue coordinator to work with and provided everything we needed to make our day special. Karen did a great job at highlighting what the venue could offer and importantly how they interfaced with Brookline to assist with permits to make the day go off without a hitch. The venue is beautiful even from a couple that admittedly doesn鈥檛 have as much of a background with cars as this venue specializes in. Regardless, Karen shared a wealth of history not only with us but also guests as the entered the venue during the reception. Karen also helped coordinate between the catering and DJ which really allowed us to focus on the fun parts of the event and not worry as much about all the logistics. During the day of the event, Karen was wonderful with helping with decorations, helping guests navigate the museum to check out the amazing exhibits and helping take things down after the event. Thank you for making this day special and a wonderful memory to look back on for the rest of our lives.

October wedding

The Larz Anderson was the most amazing venue for our fall wedding. We wanted something unique, memorable, and beautiful and we got WAY more than we asked for! The manager, and assistant manager, were absolutely wonderful to work with. All of our guests raved about how amazing the venue was - to see the antique cars on display and have access to the entire museum.

The venue is so beautiful minimal decor was needed. We definitely felt like a prince and princess.

The Larz is definitely a must for any celebration

All the good feels

Getting married at the Larz Anderson Museum was more special than we could have ever hoped for.

We had a party of 90. The ceremony was just outside the museum at the Temple of Love (which we reserved through the town of Brookline), the cocktail hour was in the back stable room and the reception was in the main gallery. The size of the venue was perfect for our party and we were able to comfortably accommodate all of the tables and chairs as well as have space for dancing. One really great thing about this venue, is that it is so beautiful and well lit on its own. We didn't have to worry about lights or decorations (other than flowers on the tables). This year, the car exhibit was 1920s Golden Age. With that beautiful display and the natural, castle-like feel of the museum, many of our guests later came up to us and said they felt that they were in Downton Abbey (which of course made my heart flutter).

Guests were able to walk around the museum to see the exhibit (on the main floor and downstairs), while sipping on their drinks during cocktail hour. They all really enjoyed that, and wanted to come back with family members to show them the exhibit on their own.

As the venue is a museum, we had to work with outside vendors for catering, tables and chairs. This was an incredibly easy process as we received a list of approved caterers (that ranged from very high end to modestly priced). We went with Cuisine Chez Vous for our catering needs, and I am so happy that they were on that list (because they were also amazing).

There is a space on the second floor for the bridal party to use before the ceremony. We had a private Ketubah ceremony before the ceremony outside, so we used that space to accommodate about 20 people. It worked very well.

Karen, who administers the museum, was a pleasure to work with. She was always responsive and very flexible with our requests. Karen worked with our very busy schedules to find a time to meet with us on several occasions. I will be forever grateful to her for accommodating our wedding party just before our reservation time as of course we had about 2 hours of surprise rain. The rain, as it turned out, went away just in time for our wedding photos and brought us so much good luck!

It has been about a month since our wedding, and my husband and I still feel like getting married at the Larz Anderson Museum was a dream.

Thank you, Karen and team, for your hospitality and for making our day so magical.
