We held our daughter's wedding reception at the MOA. We hosted 150 guests in the rotunda and meeting rooms A,B and C. The museum provided a beautiful backdrop for our caterer, light man and band/DJ. We began with cocktails around the Chuhuly and then dinner in the rotunda/meeting rooms. My only wish would have been that all guests could have fit in the rotunda but there wasn't room with the band and dance floor. However the meeting rooms were perfect for the elderly guests and those who wished to visit without talking over the band. We seated the young people around the band which was a great success. The museum really was perfect and helped us give our daughter and her new husband a night to remember. I would strongly recommend the MOA.

Overall, we were pleased with the Museum of Art as place for the ceremony and reception. We booked over a year in advance of the wedding. The museum was to provide chairs, but then sold them prior to our date, causing us to rent 110 chairs from a different vendor. Because it wasn't specified "exactly" which chairs the museum was to supply, they refused any refund (make sure you get contract details exactly). I felt once we had a wedding planner on board, they weren't as friendly.

There was much chaos during breakdown after the reception. It's best to give yourself plenty of time. We had nearly 2 dozen candles broken due to not being packaged carefully. We found the hand binding cord in a pile of trash on the floor.

Even with these items, the venue itself was remarkable. The wedding was beautiful and the reception everything the couple dreamed of. We rented the entire museum hoping the guests would wander through, but only a handful of the 100 guests went through.

We could not have been happier with our wedding venue. My husband, Matt, and I looked at the Orlando Science Center, The History Center and the Museum of Art. Each had their pro's and con's but the Museum was our first choice! We worked with Alyssa Zambryckij, the Facility and Group Sales Coordinator. She was so helpful, kind and on the ball. She quickly responded to all of our emails and made us feel like we were her only event. The day of the wedding she assisted with all of our vendors and made sure Matt and I were comfortable with everything. She was a blessing that came with the museum. The black and white tile and contemporary decor made our wedding seem like a Manhattan cocktail party. We were married in front of the Chihuly sculpture. Alyssa suggested many ways to make an aisle that we could walk down which was a nice creative touch to our artistic ceremony. Our colors were black and white so the Chihuly really pops in our photos. After the ceremony our guests we allowed to wander through the galleries before the reception. It was a neat touch, and something different. For our reception we used two of the three meeting rooms for our food stations and one of our bars. This way the beautiful black and white floor could be used for dancing, tables, couches and ottomans. Our guests loved the lounge setting we were able to create in the space. I recommend draping the museum shop - we had uplighting that made an elegant backdrop for our sweetheart and cake table. The only thing that may be a negative to some is that the museum does not allow red wine to be served due to the potential stains. This was by no means a deal breaker for us - plenty other alcoholic beverages exist. We loved our venue and could not have been happier with one of the classiest and most unique spots in Orlando.

The venue was absolutely beautiful. Having the gallery for the ceremony was wonderful Allyssia, who was our contact person, was responsive to everything that we needed. The venue seemed a bit pricey, but to me it was worth it. You will have to pay to get chair covers or rent chairs as the chairs there are not that nice. There are certain things that they can not be flexible with since it is a museum. For one thing , not red wine can be served. In spite of that I am really glad that I had the wedding there. It was beautiful.

Orlando Museum of Art was a perfect place to get married. It was beautiful! Our guests were blown away!
Alyssa was easy to work with, very professional, and accommodating. When vendors had questions about the venue, she was able to talk directly with them rather than going back and forth through me. I was very happy with everything!
The only issue I had was that I really wanted to do sparklers outside as a grand exit, but they are not allowed due to an Orlando city ordinance (not a museum policy). I just wished that it would have been written somewhere in their rental packet so I could have known before I special ordered $175 worth of sparklers and matches.

Thank you Mary and staff for helping us have the wedding of our dreams! The museum is so beautiful-the perfect setting for a unique reception. Our guests enjoyed being able to see the gorgeous art while mixing and mingling during the cocktail hour. The Chiluly piece is stunning and fascinated everyone. The Rotunda was perfect for the reception-it felt very upscale and was not your typical ballroom. There are a couple of restrictions (no red wine), but they shouldn't be a concern. Everyone was very helpful and worked well with our other vendors. If you want a unique venue with a great staff, OMA is the place to go!!

We truly loved having our reception at the OMA. Both my husband and I have creative backgrounds, so it couldn't have been more perfect for us. Our guests loved being able to check out the gallery during our cocktail hour. Mary the facility rental coordinator was super nice to work with, quick to respond, and was very flexible with taking credit card payments over the phone for convenience. I wanted to give 5 stars for everything, the only reason I didn't on flexibility was just for a couple of things that we didn't know till later in our planning, that we could not change: The facility does not allow red wine, which was a bit of a bummer but not the end of the world. Also, we didn't find out till the day of that they do not allow you to use sparklers outside for the farewell, so we wasted our money on all the sparklers that we bought. But really, other than that- we are so happy that we could have our reception at the OMA. SUCH A GREAT VENUE!!

We held our ceremony and reception at the Museum. It was a beautiful venue, and everyone really enjoyed it.
A few weeks prior to my wedding the coordinator left, and the hand over to the new coordinator wasn't the best. When we came in to do the rehearsal the day before there was a bit of confusion with the security guards, and they made both of our families believe that they could not take any pictures during our ceremony. Later that evening the coordinator called my wedding planner to apologize for the treatment from the security guards, which I appreciated.
I did feel that the cost was a bit high, especially since our other vendors took care of setting everything up.
Overall it was a lovely venue, which I would recommend to someone looking for a spot that is a bit different, and not your typical ballroom setting. One piece of advice if your hosting an event at the Museum, if you can afford it have someone do entertainment lighting for you. One of my friends did it for us, and I think that the rotunda area would have been very bland, and it would've been a completely different party without it.

After much thought of where we wanted our wedding to take place we decided that we DIDN'T want it in a hotel banquet room with 4 bland walls and paisley carpet (we do live in tourist central)- so that led us to search out other venues, and I came across the Orlando Museum of Art. At first visit I wasn't sure all 175 guests would fit, so the coordinator that I was speaking with told us to come back that next week where there was going to be another venue (A Bar Mitzvah) was taking place. So we did, and when I saw what the Museum could be turned into- I was BLOWN AWAY!! It was gorgeous! The table on the wonderful marble created such as great contrast. We had our ceremony in the rotunda where the chihuly is and the seating semi-circled around us in front of the magnificient sculpture. The coordinator was there through the wedding and reception and led us through every step and was extremly helpful. The tall ceilings, openness, and wonderful artwork was a world of difference compared to the bland 4 walls of any hotel banquet room!

Great if you can be creative, but because of the nature of the venue there are a lot of restrictions on what you can do.
But as long as you can work around them, the venue is unique and the rotunda made for a great social area.
