    Beautiful Venue!

    The minute we walked into the MOCA, we knew we wanted to get married there! We loved the high ceilings of the atrium, the real trees that brought nature inside, and the romantic vibe we knew we could create. We chose to have our ceremony and reception in the Atrium and used the Rodriguez Room for our cocktail hour. The space was perfect and our guests were in awe of the way the Atrium could change from beautiful ceremony to romantic and elegant reception venue!

    Kay was very helpful and allowed us multiple visits to ensure all of our vendors were on the same page. All of the MOCA staff were nice and pleasant and made for a smooth event planning process. The kitchen provided the catering team with space, the auditorium stage was perfect for staging flowers and tables, the parking accommodating our large group of 150 guests, and the location was close to the beach which our out of town guests loved. We would highly recommend this venue!

    A Dream Venue!

    I am so glad we had our reception at MOCA! When I was looking at venues, we were not sure whether we would be able to get married in church or not, due to our tight timeline before my husband deployed. This was the only venue we looked at that I could see myself getting married at (and we looked at probably 15 venues!) We ended up getting married in church and having our reception here, but it's a beautiful venue for a ceremony as well! Kay was so helpful and flexible with us - we probably bugged her with every possible wedding question and she was gracious, personable and helpful throughout the entire process. I have had so many guests comment on how beautiful the venue was. We did our cocktail hour in the Rodriguez Room (it was so pretty with all of the windows!) and then dinner and reception in the main room (with the lighted trees). I really loved how every room had natural light and as the sun set and it got dark, it perfectly set the tone as the party started! There is a lot of flexibility with how you want to set everything up since there are technically 3 rooms available to you (Rodriguez Room, the theater/stage room and the main room). They have tables and chairs that are included with the venue, you can bring in your own alcohol and choose your own caterer, there is a TV that you can use for a slideshow and there is built in uplighting in the main room. We didn't need to decorate at all besides the linens and centerpieces. There are also 2 private rooms for the bridal party with bathrooms and mirrors/counters/coat racks, plus the backstage space if you need to stay in hiding before the reception. It never felt cramped, even with almost 200 people in the building. In short, the venue was absolutely beautiful and Kay is very easy to work with!
