“The food was wonderful, and the bartenders moved quickly, so there was never a line. I was really proud of the party we had planned, and it was great to impress our guests. We received tons of compliments from our guests, and 8 months later, we’re still talking about how much fun we had and how wonderful the wedding/reception were. The art museum was definitely the right venue for us!” –Elizabeth B.
