We rented Wayne Art Center for our wedding reception. We appreciated the unique indoor layout. The outdoor area is beautifully landscaped which made for great photos. If you are looking for something that in no way resembles a ballroom this is your spot. It is a contemporary, comfortable and clean space. The layout consists of a main art gallery which adjoins the lobby. Our caterer set up 14 round tables seating approximately 125 guests in the main gallery which is where dinner and speeches took place. We had our DJ and bar set up in the lobby which is where guests gathered for dancing and the bridal party entrance. Dinner was a buffet which was set up in the hallway to the left of the lobby. The photo booth was in this hallway too. At the end of the hallway there was another art gallery which was open for guests to enjoy. The great thing about the separate spaces is for the most part they are all connected so they don't feel disjointed. The venue is air conditioned. We had a fun time at the Wayne Art Center and so did our guests. Kim O'Neill assisted us during the entire planning process. The center's rental fee is reasonable in comparison to others in the area. There are chairs and tables the center has for rent at a reasonable price. You can bring any caterer in you'd like as there aren't restrictions like other venues have in the area. So thankful to find a venue with no list of pre-approved caterers to select from, we just needed to run our caterer by Kim for her approval. The center has ample parking which made things easy for guests. Downtown Wayne is a quick drive from the center so we used Wayne Hotel and set up a shuttle to and from the reception. Since the venue rental can't go later than 10pm because it is in a residential area we took the after-after party back to Wayne Hotel. Everything was absolutely perfect. Great laid back unique gem for a venue rental. Not sure a lot of people know about it since it is tucked away off the mainline.Sent on 07/31/2016

If you are searching for a unique, intimate, and artsy venue, then the Wayne Art Center is it! With 2 galleries, indoor/outdoor access, and a comfortable, clean and pleasant atmosphere. The only caterer they use is Jeffrey Miller Catering, and they are also amazing, with delicious choices like you would get at a quality restaurant. Laura Shoup was my contact person at WAC. Wayne Art Center is worth looking into for your venue for those brides who enjoy an intimate style setting with all the bells & whistles.Sent on 12/06/2014

We held our rehearsal dinner in the main gallery of the Wayne Art Center in August 2015. The main gallery opens up onto a back patio, and the option of having guests enjoy either indoor or outdoor space is one of the aspects we liked most about the location. Having had both young and elderly guests in attendance, we found it a great benefit to be able to offer them the option to enjoy the air conditioning or the summer weather.Sent on 01/17/2016
We elected to use two caterers who had not worked at the site before, and coordinated with Kim O’Neill who was quite helpful and patient with both us and our selected caterers regarding our numerous questions. She even made herself available the week before our event to meet with one of our caterers who had not hosted at the site before in order to walk through the space and answer questions. We only wish that we had booked the contract space for longer, as the Center staff was quite strict on timing, and our guests were still having a wonderful time when our contracted end time arrived.
