    Beautiful Venue!

    The National Museum of Women in the Arts was the perfect venue for us! The space itself is stunning, and the staff incredibly professional. We couldn’t have asked for more.

    The Museum is gorgeous. The pictures hint at it, but it is a beautiful collection of marble and light, with fantastic chandeliers and open spaces. (When we were touring venues, we snapped a few casual pictures on our phone, and they turned out fantastic. That was a hint at just how wonderful the space looks, and how easy it was to photograph.) We had our wedding ceremony on the ground floor, and it was just perfect. Plenty of room for our guests to sit comfortably, a grand staircase to walk down, and absolutely beautiful views and acoustics. We then moved to the cocktail hour on the mezzanine, where our guests had plenty of space to walk around and enjoy. Finally, we moved back downstairs for dinner and dancing. Again, there was plenty of space, and such a beautiful setting.

    The Museum staff was also great to work with. Meredith was our main contact, and she was constantly responsive, professional, and easy to work with. The security staff and other contacts were also great to work with - present without being obtrusive.

    We couldn’t have asked for a better venue or staff.

    An elegant venue!

    We loved the NMWA as our wedding venue! It is a beautiful space and is one of the aspects our guests have complimented the most. We had the ceremony in the great hall, cocktails in the third floor gallery, dinner on the mezzanine, and dancing again in the great hall. Our guests loved cocktails in the gallery to enjoy the art; it was special and a great way to move around the space since the ceremony and reception were in the same place. Dinner on the mezzanine was elegant. One of the things we loved most about the space is you're always around all of your guests, in the same space.

    Katie and Lori at the museum were also fabulous to work with - super responsive and professional.

    The Museum was everything we dreamed of. The chandeliers, art and beautiful marble was the perfect backdrop to our decor. It was a pleasure working with the director there to plan the reception.
