Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • 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. Alternately, exchange vows on the Grand Staircase where you can make an unforgettable entrance into the Renaissance Court.
  • 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.
