About The Delaware Contemporary

The Delaware Contemporary is a unique wedding venue located in Wilmington, Delaware. Not only is this a unique site to exchange your vows in, but it also features a rich history. In fact, at one point in its past, this venue served as a railroad car factory. Over the years, however, it was renovated and remodeled into an industrial museum. Couples today can experience this modernly styled space on their special day.

    This review is long overdue, but for anyone thinking of having their wedding at the Delaware Contemporary - DO IT!

    Meagan was a joy to work with, and was incredibly helpful in communicating with our vendors, making recommendations to fit our needs, and completely organizing day-of setup. She completely took all the stress away from us so we could enjoy our day.

    The venue is beautiful, the galleries are amazing, and for the price you really can't beat it. This is a great space for the DIY couples out there that want to really personalize the space to be their own. We wouldn't give booking this venue a second thought if we had to do it all over again. Thank you Meagan and DCCA!

    Meagan was fabulous! She always answered my emails within 24 hours and was always available for questions. She gave me ideas on how the venue would be set up and then proceeded to set everything up exactly how I dreamed. She followed up with vendors to make sure everything was coordinated properly. She helped me have my dream wedding. The venue itself was really cool! During cocktail hour, there was a scavenger hunt through the exhibits. The dance floor was set up in the middle of the lobby, with the dinner tables around it. We loved this venue!
