    Couldn't have imagined a better venue for our wedding!

    As fans of film and especially the Museum of the Moving Image, the museum quickly became one of our first choices to host our wedding, even though it was not the first one we toured. We both had a personal attachment to the museum, but this experience has helped us truly fall in love with it. After reaching out to BG Hacker, the museum鈥檚 Director of Events, we scheduled a meeting to discuss the capabilities of the venue, to take a quick tour of the museum (through the eyes of hosting our entire event), and go over details of other weddings they鈥檝e hosted in the past.

    BG was able to provide names and contact information for a variety of vendors who have worked with the museum in the past, to help give us a more detailed picture of what we would be able to customize to see if the museum was the right venue for our wedding and budget. When we concluded that the museum was the perfect place to host our wedding ceremony and reception, BG was enthusiastically helpful through the entire process. He helped coordinate vendors, answered countless emails at all hours and with several last minute requests, and he was excited to help us in the planning for our big day. While the museum has some constraints compared to other venues, it also offered a unique setting for our ceremony and reception which certainly dazzled us and our guests.

    Our guests are still talking about just how much they enjoyed the space, being able to interact with the exhibits and view this museum in a different context. We opted for the Flipbook package which just added so much to the evening for our guests and we adore having copies of all that were made to flip through ourselves. Many said they would be coming back to experience the museum again in the future and so will we!

    MOMI was the perfect wedding venue for us since we both love film. But even if you aren't a movie buff, the MOMI is an incredible venue - it looks amazing, its spacious and easy to get to, and (the best part) your guests get to explore all of the fun and interactive exhibits!

    We also had the pleasure of working with BG Hacker, the museum's event coordinator, who always made us feel like we were in good hands. He was responsive and helped us work out all of the little details that go into making a wedding a success. One thing we were worried about was our decision not to hire a DJ and instead have my husband do the music himself -- BG and his staff really helped with all of the technical elements and the music elements turned out great!

    We can't recommend MOMI enough!

    The MOMI was our PERFECT wedding venue. We were able to do the ceremony and reception seamlessly in one spot, and BG, Director of Events, was above and beyond amazing. He was so organized and responsive, and recommended wonderful vendors for everything we needed. It is the perfect spot for a unique NYC wedding, and it's such a treat to be able to use the entire venue (exhibits included) for the big day. You can personalize so many things at the venue (show home videos, project photos, pick your ceremony background, etc) and it is absolutely perfect for pictures and photo ops. The entire staff was extremely prompt, responsible, friendly and professional from the event tour up until the big day. BG helps you stay organized to ensure ever detail is ironed out to make the day absolutely perfect and stress free. I cannot say enough good things about BG and his team at the MOMI!

    Museum of the Moving Image's reply:

    Thank you for choosing us for your wedding. It was such a pleasure working with you and John. I can't wait to see the photos, it was a truly beautiful wedding.
