As the Mother of the Bride, I couldn't be happier. Maureen Sears was great to work with for the reception venue. (The wedding was at Watermark Church prior to the reception.) I had read some reviews that were less than promising but loved the location and venue. I live in Houston and was planning a wedding in Dallas, so I called and spoke with Maureen about my needs & concerns. Maureen assured me that the new staff could be counted on and that their operations were dependable. Because of the beautiful venue, I chose to trust, and I am so very thankful I did. Throughout the process, Maureen was responsive in all communication and extremely helpful. Her "yes's" meant "yes" and her "no's" meant "no". I appreciated that because there was no question what was negotiable and what was not. I received a table layout and EVERYTHING was in place just as it should have been. The linens were just as we agreed. They were accommodating for various vendors that needed to make deliveries. It was all just absolutely perfect and the staff was wonderful to work with. There is definitely a terrific team in place! My trust was well placed!

We used the museum as our wedding reception venue and got SO MANY compliments from our guests!! Everyone thought it was incredibly beautiful and a very unique venue. Overall, the service was great! I always got timely responses from everyone I worked with, and they were very flexible on meeting. They also let you bring in your own alcohol and have a great variety of caterers, which helps a lot if you're on a budget!

My only complaint was on the day of. I wished the event coordinators had walked in and out of the reception a little more that evening. I don't know if they were just trying to give us our space, but there were a few times when I or my photographer had to go out to the front to ask them to turn up the A/C, dim the lights for dancing, etc. However, it wasn't really a big deal and definitely didn't detract from the night.

I had my reception only at the Museum on Sept 22, 2012. And it was AMAZING! Oh my goodness, I wish I could relive the evening right this moment :)
I started off with my initial meetings with the 2 coordinators Rebecca and Marina. They have done so many weddings at the museum that I really trusted how they did things. One thing you must be aware of if you choose the museum, is that they are not solely an event venue, they really are a professional museum that is a museum first, not your reception site first. So you have to respect them when they make you aware of paintings and statues; just been respectful and listen and it will go great. They are not as responsive in the beginning, but let me tell you, they really shine by the last couple of months of your wedding and they become completely focused on you. But any time before that, just be patient.
They really will work with you on everything....i wanted specific colors of napkins and other linens and they were able to get it all. I tried to speak up and really tell them what I wanted (some of which they didnt have in stock themselves, and they are glad to find it for you.)
I LOVED that tables and chairs were included. We didnt use chair covers and it was beautiful without them. They're lighting team did a great job, but, again, I was very very involved in the planning process. Literally went around and had them show me each uplight, etc. which they were so willing to do. They were just marvelous! I brought in my own wedding coordinator, but I know Rebecca will coordinate it as well. We had 230 guests and it was the perfect size....the atrium for the cocktail hour was perfection, and then the ballroom was full and we were able to have a seat for each guest. It was perfection!!

This venue was BEAUTIFUL! I can't tell you how many compliments we had. It worked perfect for us because we didn't want our guests to have to relocate from the ceremony to the reception. They flipped the ballroom for us after the ceremony in RECORD time. Our guests had cocktail hour and appetizers in the atrium and they LOVED IT. When they returned to the ballroom for the reception they were in shock. The LED lighting on the pillars had a HUGE effect.
They have vases, etc. that they let you use for centerpieces for free which came in handy and saved us money. They were willing and able to meet us for several planning meetings and were very accommodating for us and our vendors. They were not flexible on the price as I tried to negotiate, but in the end it was worth every penny.

The building was beautiful and I cannot deny this! This ended up being the wrong venue for me. Here is my story:

My situation with this vendor was unique and I felt was handled very unprofessionally. It ended up being a nightmare for me. The orginal wedding coordinator was suddenly terminated. Her personality and knowledge of the building was the ONLY reason I chose to go with with this venue. She understood the bride and wanted to do everything to make her happy. I received a phone call from the new coordinator one week prior to the wedding. I was informed that the previous coordinator would not be handling my wedding plans anymore. I had to vist with the new wedding coordinator and explain all of my plans "again" on the week of my wedding. During this meeting, I was asked to pay additional money because I was informed that the previous coordinator made a mistake in my contract. I explained that the previous coordinator discoved this, but chose to honor the contract because it was her mistake. The venue did decide to honor the contract after a serious discussion.

There were also other changes due to inflexiblities that affected my vendors. My florist had very little time to finish decorations prior to guests arriving. The florist had to cover 110 chairs, and decorate the room for the ceremony. She also had to prepare to flip the room for the reception. This caused a problem because all vendors had to arrive at the same time through the exact same entrance. The time restraints were stressful and very unrealistic in my opinion.

The cost of the building was $2800 for 4 hours. This included a two hour set-up and one hour breakdown and four hours for the wedding and reception. I was informed that if the wedding went past the time on the contract that I would be charged additional fees. You can choose to pay for additional hours if you wish, but the set-up and breakdown remains the same.

During the wedding event, a security guard walked the building to ensure that no one touched anything. Guests were constantly reminded to step back from the pictures and do not lean on the walls.

The other disappointment was the lighting in the building for pictures. The grand room was beautiful, but the lighting in the room made it difficult to take pictures. It would put shadows over the attendants as they walked in. The previous wedding coordinator had made suggestions on how to correct this problem, but she was terminated a few days prior to my wedding. I didn't remember her suggestions because I was scheduled to have my last meeting with her two weeks prior to the wedding and I depended on this.

I would not recommend this venue, because of my personal experience. However; yours could be different. What are the chances of having this exact same thing happening to you? GOOD LUCK!
