    Beautiful, Unique Venue

    Our wedding at Material Culture was beautiful and everything we had hoped for. The staff is lovely to work with. I would highly recommend having your wedding here if you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary!

    Colorful, lively and perfect venue!

    We are so happy that we were able to have our wedding at Material Culture. Everything there is joyful, artful and colorful; it is unlike any venue we had been to before! Our guests couldn't stop talking about how fun they thought the place was. Both kids and adults enjoyed wandering around and exploring the rugs, sculptures, art hanging from the ceiling, etc. Also, the food was beautiful, flavorful, interesting and absolutely delicious. The event planner, chef, and all the people who work there nailed every detail - thank you!!

    I can't say enough about this venue. From the beauty that it is naturally to the work that they put in for each event, Material Culture was a stunner. Our guests were enamored with the decor and all of the pieces for them to look at. There was a wedding the night before ours and they offered to leave their Chuppah up for us to use. We loved the idea of the community of the Chuppah but the aesthetic wasn't exactly right. Samantha was super understanding and switched to Sari fabric for our event and it came out perfect. The food was absolutely spectacular and our guests are still raving about every wonderful bite, but especially the pigs in a blanket and the short rib! The experience was absolutely perfect, I wouldn't have changed a thing!
