This review is long overdue, but for anyone thinking of having their wedding at the Delaware Contemporary - DO IT!Sent on 06/24/2018
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!Sent on 07/18/2017
I LOVE shooting weddings and events at the DCCA. Beautiful space with lots of art which makes weddings there so much fun! The staff is great. One of my favorite wedding places in Wilmington for indoor ceremonies and receptions.
Love working with DCCA! Ashlee is great and knows the facility forwards and backwards to help you with anything you need. Great space with a lot of flexibility!
What unique setting for a wedding &/or reception! Also a great opportunity to support the arts in Delaware. The staff here is very easy to work with, easy parking for your guests, & just a beautiful, unique place!
