    Look no further than the MoS!!

    I sing and emcee in a wedding band so when it comes to weddings, I've see them all! We did not hire a planner for our wedding since we had a good idea about what we wanted. The museum is, first of all, GORGEOUS. But beyond that, everyone we worked with was so professional, helpful, and truly cared that we (and our guests) had the most perfect wedding day. Charlotte walked us through every detail before the big day and was truly a joy to work with. She'd remind us about things we would have never thought about and offered suggestions as well as vendors who were also amazing to work with. Because of working in this industry, I'm used to taking over a wedding and making sure everyone is where they're supposed to be and things are happening on schedule. As I started to take on that roll the day of my own wedding, I quickly realized I didn't have to! Lisa, our day of coordinator, proved herself exceptionally capable and really allowed me to relax (can you imagine?!) and enjoy every moment of our wedding day. Not to mention, she saved the day being prepared with some Tide stick for my dress. Overall, I've performed in at least 40 weddings and have had a fly-on-the-wall view of how other vendors work and I have never worked with anyone as professional, organized, and wonderful as the Museum of Science team. Look no further!

    Great place to get married!

    The Museum of Science Washburn Pavilion was a great place to get married! It's so beautiful that you don't even need to decorate. The MoS staff and Wolfgang Puck staff were so friendly and easy to work with. They took care of everything during the wedding, so we could just enjoy ourselves. The food was also fantastic.
