    Beautiful and Unique Venue

    We had a fantastic experience at the Eric Carle Museum, working with with Siobhan. The space itself is really fun and unique, but still elegant. Everyone loved both the indoor and outdoor space. We added on the art room, and it was a great addition--people were way more into it than I expected, and we got some beautiful and unique art from guests rather than a basic guest book. It's a little more work than an all-inclusive venue to coordinate bringing everything in to the Carle, but they were super flexible and willing to work with us, and their staff and suggested vendors were a huge help.

    Perfect for your storybook weding

    I can't rave enough about the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art! My husband and I immediately fell in love with the venue for our 10/27/2018 wedding, and as we only had a 5-month engagement, the museum's incredible staff were so vital to helping us pull off the wedding of our dreams! Siobhan was such a professional and made the entire process of planning (from recommending vendors to helping us choose a layout for the reception) as stress free as possible. On the day-of the wedding both Siobhan and Anne were a much needed calming presence, were so organized, and really went above and beyond the call of duty (i.e. literally zipping me into my dress and helping me get ready, and clearing the great hall before the ceremony so I could move around without being seen by my husband or early guests). Our guests all loved the venue, and so enjoyed the galleries during cocktail hour. The Carle is the perfect venue for any fun couple who wants their wedding to be creative, sweet, and a little out of the ordinary.

    We actually had an event last June but I wanted to get this done. My son had a out of town wedding and we wanted to have some type of event for the family and friends around here to celebrate their marriage. I can't say enough about this venue. Siobhan was fantastic to work with and everything went smoothly. She did everything possible to make the day special and have everything exactly the way we planned it.
