Magical MCA Wedding
Our wedding was a dream! The team, Mary & Katie, at the MCA were super responsive and easy to work with. A huge plus is the museum takes care of so much (food, bar, table settings) that we didn't have to juggle many additional vendors. The Commons area is already perfect for cocktails and dancing with the ceiling installation. The food was INCREDIBLE. What a memorable & magical wedding night at one of my favorite places in Chicago. Thank you MCA!Sent on 05/06/2019

We loved our reception at the MCA - the venue and catering teams worked hard to make it exactly what we were looking for. Our guests were blown away by the uniqueness of the venue, as well as the convenience to the nearby hotels. We were able to have the wedding of our dreams! Highly recommended!Sent on 12/26/2017

Mary Klein, Director of Catering, was fantastic to work with when planning our wedding reception. She was professional, organized, responsive and her flexibility enabled us to completely personalize all of the details for our party. We really appreciated all of her efforts to ensure that our vision became a reality. The MCA was an amazing venue with beautiful outdoor and indoor cocktail space, open galleries and an outstanding caterer.Sent on 11/28/2017

I cannot imagine a better place to have a unique modern city wedding in Chicago. My fiance wanted an outdoor garden wedding and I wanted a clean city wedding, this location gave us both! Our guests will always remember that we were married not just at 'another hotel'. The art exhibit provided everyone the opportunity to see something different and enjoy the 'best food' most had ever had at a wedding. (Thank you Wolfgang Puck too!)Sent on 05/29/2009

What a beautiful venue. And the food was amazing. Our guests could not stop complimenting us on having our wedding here. The staff was a pleasure to work with throughout the process. We loved the flexibility of indoor and outdoor space available to us right up until the afternoon of the wedding. Having the galleries open during the wedding was so cool. We are so happy with our choice!Sent on 10/02/2018
Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago's reply:Thank you Michelle! It was a joy to work with you and Michael on your wedding celebration. Thank you again for choosing the MCA and we wish you so much happiness!

We thought it'd be fun to get married at an art museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art was even better than we could have hoped! The art made a great backdrop for the photos. The space has great flow, guests could check out the art galleries, play lawn games on the terrace, or chill in the atrium. We worked with Mary and Katie at the MCA and they were the best!! They were so accommodating and knew their stuff, they were prepared with everything we could think of and a lot we didn't even think of. The food was amazing, all our guests were impressed and the staff is so professional and go above and beyond (they even fixed our cake! some of the piped frosting fell off before it was delivered). We couldn't be happier to have our special day at the MCA!Sent on 10/04/2018
Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago's reply:Thank you Michelle! It was a pleasure working with you on your big day. We are thrilled that your guests enjoyed themselves so much on the wedding day. Best wishes!

My husband and I did our wedding reception over the summer at the MCA. We worked mostly with Mary, but also Kristi as well. Our guests said that they loved the venue, and the outdoor/indoor space was absolutely perfect for a summer night in the city. Location couldn’t have been better, and the staff was professional and very informative. Mary is a sweetheart, and my husband and I have nothing but fond memories of the MCA and our special celebration!Sent on 11/20/2017
Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago's reply:Thank you Anisa! Congratulations to you and Dan on a beautiful wedding day!

The MCA Events Team is the Best
You are in really great hands with Mark and Mary. MCA Catering and events are really the loveliest people out there. From adding my grandmother to our tasting last minute, to being flexible and creative about the bar options (had to have tequila for the Texans), to Mark literally saving our Musicians from a thunderstorm by running back and forth in a freak summer storm with and without an umbrella, I'd trust this crew with my big day any day. The food was extraordinary, the venue one of a kind, and the staff took such great care of our every need leading up to and on our Wedding day.
My one big disappointment was with the museum staff, we were passed around to different folks, routinely kept waiting and on the big day were treated less than kindly by the museum representative. Without the snafus from the museum staff this would be a 12 out of 10 experience.Sent on 12/02/2019

The MCA was a beautiful place to host our wedding ceremony and reception. The outdoor garden area and Chicago skyline was a forgoes backdrop for our ceremony. The museum appealed to our contemporary style and provided ample room for our guest count. It was lovely being in the center of the city in one of our favorite museums on our wedding day. Guests loved exploring the museum. Museum staff were relatively accommodating. Although, you have to be flexible about what artwork will be installed in the space. Staff were not too forthcoming with this information but it worked out in the end. We were very happy with the MCA and the Wolfgang Puck food was delicious!Sent on 11/08/2012
