Perfect for our small reception.
We booked the upstairs gallery for our small reception and we couldn't have been happier! The venue was beautiful, simple, classic, and modern. The staff at SBDAC were amazingly helpful, flexible, and attentive. Everything went off without a hitch. I highly recommend the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center for your wedding and reception.Sent on 10/06/2019

aving my wedding at Sydney & Berne Davis Art Center was the best decision I could have made! Melody and Stasi were beyond fantastic and the team at SBDAC were second to none. Not to mention that the venue is absolutely gorgeous! I knew I wanted a unique venue that fit our love for our city. SBDAC was the first venue that we visited, and its elegance and beauty made it difficult to picture ourselves getting married anywhere else. However, what truly made a difference was Melody. The way she stayed on top of everything was amazing. She knew what I needed before I needed it. She made the planning so easy and I felt confident in her which made for a stress-free day. Melody and Stasi make weddings look easy, especially during a pandemic! You can tell that they truly care about their couples and take pride in their work. I was able to completely enjoy my special day because of the team at Sydney & Berne and although I never plan on getting married again, I would with their help!Sent on 02/01/2021

SBDAC was the perfect choice for our wedding. The venue has a magical feeling. The outside is absolutely beautiful. The staff here will do whatever it takes to make the day right. We had rain in the forecast and the venue staff was flexible all day long moving from plan A to B to C and back to B!! Truly a great space for a wedding of 100+. Stasi was our point person and was extremely helpful over the course of the year we worked with her. I highly recommend!Sent on 10/26/2019
