    We so enjoyed working with the people at the MIM, and can’t thank them enough for all the time and attention they gave us! Even just their willingness to do anything and everything we needed made our life and planning so easy! The day was just perfect all around! Our guests complimented the venue, how beautiful it was, the food was delicious, the staff was terrific … and we echo those sentiments! Thank you!

    My wedding was just beautiful! It was a morning ceremony in the Jill Dahlin courtyard followed by a luncheon in the guitar room. Everything was perfect! The food was amazing, my guests loved the venue and dealing with Stephanie the catering manager was an absolute pleasure. Everything ran right on time and i could not have asked for a better venue!

    We knew that we wanted to get married at the MIM as soon as we were engaged! The MIM was so great to work with. All of the staff and coordinators were easy to communicate with and they were very accommodating! Of course the wedding ending up costing a bit more than we planned on but we were really ok with that. They provided us everything we needed from seating, lighting, dinner, food service and bar service. You do have to put up all your own decor such as flowers, centerpieces and LED candles (flame candles are not allowed). They also offer some great package options and we picked the one that allowed two exhibits to remain open for the guests! We had numerous people tell us it was the best wedding they have been too!

    Musical Instrument Museum's reply:

    Thank you so much for the wonderful review Sarah. You and Mike were fantastic to work with and it was easy to tell how in love you guys are. We wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you from time to time in the museum.

Oh my goodness...can you even think of a more unique and beautiful place to get married?! As a former art history teacher, I have a special affinity for museum weddings and the Musical Instrument Museum is no exception. The fountain, the staircase, the history...oh my. This is really the place to visit for a special way to tie the knot. And I can't wait to visit on my next trip to Phoenix this year!
