    Dream Wedding at WAM

    My husband and I tied the knot at Worcester Art Museum in October of 2018. It was the first venue we visited when planning our wedding...and we never visited any others because we couldn't picture our special day being anywhere else. The day went off without a hitch from our ceremony to the reception. It's really awesome to have the whole museum just for yourself and your guests. The venue is one of a kind and our guests sincerely enjoyed being able to explore the museum throughout the event.

    I would be remiss not to mention Jackie and the team at WAM. The planning process was made simple with a list of preferred vendors, who were all familiar with the unique space. All of my questions and emails were answered within hours. On the day of the wedding, Jackie and her team made sure everything ran smoothly. As I have come to say, "every bride deserves a to have Jackie on her wedding day."

    If you want to feel like a princess and walk away with some of the most exceptionally beautiful wedding photos, go talk to the good folks at WAM. It was an amazing day.

    The Worcester Art Museum is a beautiful venue. Janice and Kristen were fabulous in helping us through from the planning stages to the day of the wedding. The staff was wonderful, responsive and paid attention to every detall! The venue speaks for itself not much decorating is needed. I highly recommend the Worcester Art Museum for your wedding venue.
