    The Museum of Science was an absolute amazing wedding venue. Cory Butler and the team have done a remarkable job, and they made the wedding planning process an absolute breeze. They have been so supportive and responsive. Wolfgang Puck Catering. I cannot begin to describe how amazing the food was. They are top class, and my husband and I couldn't be happier with our decision with the Museum of Science and Wolfgang Puck.

    It has been a month since our wedding at the Museum of Science already, and I must say I still have a high feeling from it and it is all thanks to the MOS (Museum of Science) team. (With Cory in the lead for planning and Lisa in the lead for execution on the day-of).
    We approached them almost a year before our wedding about wanting to have it at the MOS and from that email and on, I felt like they became our wedding dream team! From helping with ideas for the flow, to always having a check list of things needed for the day to go smoothly and all the schedules and timelines that gave people an overview of the day. I am a very organized person and I need everything confirmed, reconfirmed and in writing, but I did not need to tell them, because they were more organized than me! At no point did I feel stressed and I knew I could always just call them to go over something with the wedding or discuss any detail, small or big. My husband is in the military, so we had the additional aspect of him rarely being there for most of the planning, but I still felt safe and comfortable with the MOS. They just made it work! When I told them I wanted to have a "fancy" wedding, they immediately suggested things that could give it that vibe - even things I had not thought of myself!

    Our guests still talk about how amazing the venue, the team and the planning was and I could not have done it without the MOS. They are professional, they love what they do, they care about you and your big day and it is worth every penny.

    The food is from Wolfgang Puck Catering and even though it is the most "pricy" part of the wedding, it was worth it and every meal was exquisite.

    They made our day perfect and even our parents mentioned how it was worth it to have it at this museum because of their planning skills, professionalism and their people.
