The Mystic Arts Center is a hidden gem in the downtown Mystic, CT, area. We had the most beautiful wedding reception there. Throughout our planning process, the Center was accepting of us dropping in and scoping things out. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We had the wonderful pleasure of working with Gretchen Higgins. She was so accommodating of all of our requests, even some that were a tad unusual. The Center itself is a beautiful facility, and for a wedding, it is absolutely stunning. The main room was perfect our 100 guests, and maybe even more could have fit. The cocktail hour was set outside on the back porch and overlooked the Mystic River. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone!

We loved working with Mystic Arts. Their staff was friendly, and the riverside venue is great for a mid-sized summer wedding. They have a few restrictions regarding start and end times and decor, but they're also willing to work with you. Highly recommended!

I will start out by saying that this is an absolutely beautiful space. However, the staff of the Mystic Arts Center made my wedding an extremely stressful event. Their special events coordinator, Gretchen, is very hard to get a hold of. We booked the space 1 year before our wedding and signed a contract that stated we could start setting up at 3pm. This would have been cutting it close as it was bc our ceremony was supposed to start at 4:30. Building up to the wedding I called and emailed Gretchen several times and did not hear anything back. When the big day came the first person arrived to set up at 3 and was hold by Gretchen that he could not start setting up to 5 and that he could not leave the kitchen. When other people came they were told the same and shown an updated pamphlet showing set up time as 5pm, even though we had a signed contract stating we could set up at 3pm. My parents stopped by to drop things off and were greeted by an extremely rude Gretchen and started setting up anyway. My fiance arrived w her wedding party around 3:30 to find set up had barely begun and both my mother and my Fiance's mother as well as our wedding parties and families had to help set up at this point bc so little time.was left. They were also told they couldn't use round tables in a closet bc we had to pay extra (also not in our contract). So, our seating chart was useless and even our table decorations needed to be adjusted. My parents never got to see me before the ceremony bc they were stuck at the Arts Center. They refused to close the Arts Center to the public before 5pm so my wife's wedding party had to go around asking people to leave and explaining that there was a wedding. The whole thing was a nightmare. To top it off Gretchen was going around to random.guests complaining that she was worried bc the caterer wasn't insured (they were certified by the state which is leagally all they need and we were required to take out 2 million dollars in.insurance on our own) she was also complaining that she didn't think we'd clean up on time, she drank at the open bar and asked for a plate of food before even our guests were served. She also came up to my wife and I as we were eating to tell us she just got our voicemails that day. At that point, who cared?! Now after the wedding, I keep hearing over and over again from my family what a nightmare this place was. I'm so disappointed that my special day was overshadowed by the problems we had. Do yourself a favor and book somewhere else.
