A Stunning Ceremony Space

The Worcester Art Museum was the perfect spot for our Worcester wedding ceremony and we would recommend anybody to consider it if you’re getting married in the area. The Renaissance Court is a striking room; the pictures do it justice but it’s even better in person. The room, the chapel off of the room, and the areas in and around the museum provide for a beautiful array of wedding photos. The on-site event coordinator, Jacki, was incredibly helpful to work with and really worked with us to get the perfect layout and procession setup for our ceremony. She was always accessible and accommodating as we sketched out idea after idea for the event.

Our wedding guest count was close to 160, which is probably the maximum limit I’d recommend for the space. The room technically seats 120, but we had guests line the top arches as a unique vantage point and it worked out perfectly. If that’s not an option for you, then you should consider the space limits. We were also wondering how the mosaic in the middle of the room would impact guests’ vantage points for the ceremony, since you cannot step on it - this ended up being a non-factor: everybody had perfect visibility throughout the event. The other recommendation is to have live music in this room if possible; the acoustics played out perfectly with our string quartet.

Some other details: there is ample parking in the lots next to the building and across the street, we would recommend signage directing guests to the right door for entry. The museum staff were welcoming and attentive to our guests’ needs during the ceremony

A truly unique and memorable wedding venue!

We are so glad to have had our wedding celebration at the Worcester Art Museum. It truly created a unique experience by having the galleries open to our guests throughout the night. Jacki, the event manager worked with us over the course of two years to create the perfect night (since before the COVID pandemic). She was there for any hiccups and ensured all the timeline events transitioned smoothly to one another.

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!
