    The Most Unique Wedding Experience

    When my husband and I were visiting venues, we knew we wanted something particularly unique that celebrated our relationship (our second date was at the MFA, we are big museum goers!) Visiting the WAM for the first time was almost like something out of a dream. Everything was truly picture perfect (like our guests said).
    Jacki is an amazing coordinator, very prompt, professional, personable, and awesome to work with. We never stressed or worried about anything throughout the planning process.
    The day itself went off without a hitch. Jacki worked closely with all of our other vendors to make sure we were following our timeline. The guests couldn't stop raving about how beautiful and unique the venue was. The lower level was even open all night so guests could explore the exhibits! Absolutely perfect. Couldn't have had our wedding anywhere else!

    Perfect Venue

    There aren't words to describe how perfect my wedding was at the Worcester Art Museum in the Chapter House. Of course, with all the beautiful art work it took any stress out of worrying about decorating further. The staff was helpful from the moment I booked through to the moment we said goodnight.

    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.
