    Excellent experience all around!!!

    Hubby and I loved getting married at The Frazier! Tori and Abby were great coordinators. They walked us through everything, and made sure the wedding and reception went smoothly. We kept the decorations minimal, because The Frazier has such a classic and rustic look. And the cocktail hour in the Order of the Writ room was just perfect! And, even though it poured on our wedding day (which ruined the plan for a rooftop ceremony), we had a beautiful backup location, and we were able to take wedding pics anywhere in the museum!

    The Frazier Museum did a fantastic job with our daughter's wedding. Having the Speak Easy with the Prohibition exhibit for the cocktail hour was a great idea. Abby our coordinator was the best!
