    Unique, elegant, and lovely, my husband and I immediately fell in love with the idea of getting married at the Natural History Museum. My mom was horrified by the idea of such a non-traditional venue, but we pulled it off and had a gorgeous and traditional wedding, that happens to be in a unique venue. Courtney was a huge help during our 19 month engagement. All of our guests can't stop raving about how it was the most memorable, fun, and beautiful wedding they've been to. There are so many photo ops. By getting married there, we got to experience a year as a fellows member. We loved getting to experience the museum during it's pivotal expansion and renovation phase. Check out the NHMLA Events Blog for photos of weddings held at the museum.
    Thanks, Courtney and NHMLA!

    We had our ceremony and reception at the museum and it was absolutely perfect. Our main contact at the museum was Courtney. She was an amazing person to work with - responsive, creative, unbelievably helpful, enthusiastic, professional, calm and fun! She worked wonderfully with me directly before we hired our wedding planner and continued that great relationship once our planner was involved. Courtney knows how to talk to brides, grooms, parents, planners and other vendors. She is calm in the face of a storm, provides excellent suggestions when asked for them and can help to provide solutions when there are problems and went out of her way to help us in pulling everything together.

    The museum itself is amazing and has unlimited photo opportunities. And it just keeps getting better with all the new exhibits. As another reviewer mentioned, there are time restrictions. We were very nervous about the limited load in time for our ridiculous number of vendors. However, the staff at the museum is very experienced with this and it was not a problem in the least.

    I know it isn't the least expensive place to hold your wedding, but there are so many other benefits that outweigh the pure costs. A portion of the fees are tax-deductible and you also get a membership to the museum which gives you access to invitations for a number of special events. There are venues in Los Angeles that are comparably priced that don't provide those benefits, nor could they accommodate the size of our group (240 people) and frankly - those other places don't provide dinosaurs as the backdrop for your ceremony.

    We had an absolutely unforgettable wedding and reception - not just for ourselves, but for many of our guests. The setting of the museum was perfect and I wouldn't have wanted to do it anywhere else.

    We had our cocktail hour in the Grand Foyer and dinner at the African Mammal Hall on 3/20/2010 (we did our ceremony in the Rose Garden outside the museum). This venue was the BEST PART of the whole wedding process. There isn't enough good things I can say about them. The event coordinators, Courtney and Melissa, are such dolls to work with! They were so responsive, creative and just plain fun! The museum was simply stunning! My husband and I are real science dorks so it seemed fitting to have our reception under a pair of dinosaurs. We loved the venue so much, we added dinosaurs into our wedding theme (as cake toppers, dino-eggs as place cards, and dinos on our invitations and programs). Our guests were BLOWN AWAY at the reception. It's just awesome to have the whole first floor of the museum to yourselves. However, my husband and I were allowed to go ANYWHERE in the museum... so we took really cool pics next to the exhibits. Absolutely awesome!

    The only downside I can see is that it is the most expensive venue we looked at. The charge starts at $8k just to rent out the Grand Foyer. The venue providers tables and chairs, but that's it. You have to bring in your own caterer, DJ, decorator, etc.

    Some details: You event must be between 6pm - 11pm (you can pay extra to stay longer but you cant rent any earlier than 6pm). They have tables and chairs enough for 300+ people. Your rental price includes one year membership to the museum (so you are invited to all these fancy member events throughout the year).

    But it was definitely worth every penny. I just LOVED venue. What an experience!
