Magical MCA Wedding

Our wedding was a dream! The team, Mary & Katie, at the MCA were super responsive and easy to work with. A huge plus is the museum takes care of so much (food, bar, table settings) that we didn't have to juggle many additional vendors. The Commons area is already perfect for cocktails and dancing with the ceiling installation. The food was INCREDIBLE. What a memorable & magical wedding night at one of my favorite places in Chicago. Thank you MCA!

We loved our reception at the MCA - the venue and catering teams worked hard to make it exactly what we were looking for. Our guests were blown away by the uniqueness of the venue, as well as the convenience to the nearby hotels. We were able to have the wedding of our dreams! Highly recommended!
