Magical Wedding night!

My matron of honor suggested this venue because she's a member of the Children's Museum (no they do not offer discounts to members). At first I was hesitant, it was so untraditional, it didn't seem big enough. and the museum doesn't close until 5pm, which would make us have an evening wedding. But after touring other venues in the area, I could not pass up the value of the venue. The price was very reasonable and the accommodations included free parking, tables, and chairs. In addition, you can bring in your own caterer and bartender! SOLD! Throughout the 10 months of planning, the event planning staff at the museum was very responsive and was always open to ideas and concepts especially since they're a fairly new venue. We were able to hold our rehearsal there the night before and they had already set up all 28 of my guest tables and I was in total shock of how much space there was!! On the wedding day everything went smoothly and once decorated the space exceeded my expectations! The hall were our ceremony was held felt very intimate and in the reception area the lights off of the carousel created an atmosphere of love that's indescribable. Oh, and the bridal suite was huge!! My wedding day was perfect and I would highly suggest this venue to any bride seeking a venue for intimacy and character!
