We held a kosher event which required special instructions. The team worked with us at every turn to include multiple outside vendors, early access, price, access to the Chapel, help for elderly, coordinating with the hotel and just thinking outside the box. They created the ice fountain and named specialty drinks! They arranged the hall and asked for my review for arrangement and seating. Kemdall and Kathleen always emailed and called me back. They wenr out of their way to make sure everyone, including me, had a great time. You cannot beat the beautiful location and grounds. We are going to buy a brick for this fantastic event. The Docent will forever be remembered by my family. There is a reason they say the Marines are the few and the proud. No one can measure up to this staff. Also, I always worry about food but don't. This place has the best roast beef and lamb. Plus we had a pasta bar that got rave reviews. Just incredible. Thank you all.

Professional Network & Endorsements

Working with the staff at the National Museum of the Marine Corps was a FANTASTIC experience! Our venue contact Kendall was great to work with during all our pre planning meetings with our client. She was onsite on the night of the wedding to make sure that everything ran smoothly. Our Catering Manger Kathleen communicated with us on final catering details and floor plans. On event day, the staff did a wonderful job with presentation and service. We had a pre planned special request for the reception, and the catering team executed the surprise distribution of “la hora loca” props flawlessly. Our couple and guests all had a great time!

This is a fantastic Museum and tribute to the Marine Corp. I was privileged to be allowed to take engagement photos at this location for a client who served in the Marine Corp. My wife and I returned the next day to walk through the museum and were impressed at the exhibits!

Elegant out of the box venue! Love this location.

A wonderful venue to have a unique wedding reception, or any other event. The staff is friendly and attentive, and do a great job!
