The Plains Art Museum was a dream space for our wedding reception! The planning process was super smooth, so when it came to the day of the wedding, we didn't have to worry about a thing! Serena was amazing to work with and made sure that we had everything we needed. Also, the space is AMAZINGLY gorgeous! We loved that we had the cocktail/social hour on the first floor, dinner on the third floor, and then the dancing back on the first floor (so did our guests!). We were even able to rent out the galleries so that our guests could walk through to see the artwork during the social hour. We would HIGHLY recommend!!Sent on 07/18/2018

Micro-wedding of our dreams
The Plains Art staff are the kindest, most accommodating, and helpful people my (now) husband and I have met! We found ourselves in a pickle-- due to COVID lockdowns around the holidays near our original venue, we were left with the choice to either find a new location with less than three weeks to plan, or postpone. Due to COVID, we really wanted a micro-wedding to celebrate safely with our immediate family and bridal party only, and keeping our original date was important to us. Plains Art made it happen in a pinch. Serena and Penny made it SO EASY-- they were incredibly responsive, provided a vendor list and gave recommendations, and sent floor plans and info packets to talk us through everything. Our day turned out absolutely perfect thanks to them, even though it was entirely planned remotely with very little time. The flow of events was perfect, and the museum itself made for a stunning wedding album.Sent on 03/09/2021
Despite our wedding being a complete 180 from our original "vision", we would not have had it any other way. The Plains Art Museum provided the perfect canvas to paint the beginning of our next story.

Perfect, so easy to work with
Penny and Plains Art were extremely easy to work with. Any time I had questions or concerns, Penny was on it. Determined to make the day as perfect and flawless as I wanted it to be. It only took us one walk through to really nail the details and for that I’m grateful. There’s nothing worse than having to repeat your vision or having someone who doesn’t understand. The communication was perfect and they were very responsive.Sent on 10/02/2020

The Plains Art Museum is the only venue you should consider if you want an indoor, modern wedding. There really aren't any venues around that are quite like it! Bonus: if you get married in the winter- you'll have an amazing indoor space to take photos all day, instead of standing around outside freezing like all the other couples who booked a less-than-gorgeous venue that day! I totally recommend Plains Art Museum for your wedding day!
