Why We Like This Place

  • The stately elegance and unique architecture of the Renaissance Court will add a dramatic backdrop to your wedding. Filled with natural light flowing in through its glass ceiling, the space is surrounded by 50 centuries of art.
  • Wedding ceremonies are intimate in the Chapter House, a 12th-century Gothic-style architectural masterpiece in stonework and stained glass for up to 70 guests. Or, exchange vows on the Grand Staircase where you can make an unforgettable entrance into the Renaissance Court. For an outdoor option, get married in the Stoddard Garden courtyard against a backdrop of mosaics and greenery.
  • Your guests will enjoy a one-of-a-kind wedding experience as they explore the museum galleries and take in the world-class collection of art.
