When we went to look at venues, there were no other places I had in mind but the Walters! The night exceeded all of my expectations and more! I wouldn't change a single thing :)
Ps- we have a lot of red wine drinkers in our family, and not one had a problem with the fact that you can only drink red wine during dinner!!

I fell in love with many DC museum venues, but not the price tag. We lucked out in finding this gem that literally blew our guests away. They leave museum rooms open for your guests for the cocktail hour and reception, and the sculpture court is absolutely stunning. We couldn't be happier with this venue and have zero negative things to say about it. We worked with Heather Poff, the event coordinator, and she was great as well. We also go our uplighting through the venue and recommend it because it just added something extra. People kept asking us how we found such a beautiful venue and that they loved everything about the experience!

I had my wedding reception in the sculpture garden at the Walters Art Museum and it was exquisite! I could not have been happier with the venue. It was a beautiful backdrop and we have received countless compliments. Heather, the events coordinator, was delightful to work with. She was accommodating and helpful throughout our planning process. She was 8-9 months pregnant at our wedding but she hosted with a smile on her face the whole time. The sculpture garden was the perfect size for our 120 guests.

The Walter's is an amazing venue! The walls are a very pale yellow and therefore compliment all colors. For my wedding, I chose all white, with gold accents and just a few purple flowers. Against the beauty of the museum. it was BEAUTIFUL! The wedding was elegant, sophisticated...truly gorgeous! Heather Poff at the museum is also so accommodating and helpful. She did a great job and was a pleasure to work with...my husband and I (just married!) highly recommend the venue.

Having our wedding at the Walters was the best decision we made for our wedding. The scenery, ambiance and art made such a huge difference for all of our photos and it provided such a warm environment for our guests. The guests loved that they could explore the galleries during the cocktail hour/reception and all of the displayed sculptures and artwork provided such excellent decoration. It was just SO pretty! Additionally, the Walters & catering staff were so helpful and very on top of the event the whole time. As the bride, I did not stress out at all during the wedding ceremony & reception because the Walters coordinator & catering coordinator had it covered! It was a pleasure working with them. They get a 5/5 stars for all categories because they truly were amazing to work with. It was the best day of our lives!

Pricey, but worth the cost. The beautiful space speaks for itself when you see it. We had both our ceremony and reception here.

Heather Poff, the rental manager, was amazing. She stepped in to be a coordinator the day of and helped us walk our paces through rehearsal. She really acted like a wedding planner and made sure everything went smoothly, and I can't thank her enough for that after our wedding planner bailed on us. She is very personable and down to earth, and stuck to the rules of the museum. Biggest rule some might not like is the no red liquids, but we didn't care about having red wine and our guests enjoyed everything else we provided. Heather really made us feel at ease and we were truly thankful that she was there. Working with someone who is friendly and accommodating can make all the difference.

We had both the ceremony and the reception at the Walters Art Museum. The ceremony was in front of a beautiful medieval altar piece and the guests perused the Medieval Gallery during the cocktail hour. It was a privilege to have the wedding among these priceless work of art. Dinner and dancing were in the magnificent classical Sculpture Court. We had soft tinted lighting but kept decorations to a minimum. How could anything be more elegant than the art itself? It was really magical. Many of our guests were from Europe and were amazed to find such a magnificent art collection in Baltimore. The staff were very professional and protective of the art works but also very kind and helpful. Mr. Zimmerman, who is in charge of the use of the museum for private parties, is very knowledgable and has much good advice about how to make the best use of the beautiful space.

I fell in love with the Walters the second I walked in! Not only is the sculpture garden elegant and stunning, it's totally different from any other venue in the area. All of our guests said it was one of the most beautiful weddings they had ever been to and the space provided an amazing backdrop for our pictures. Heather is awesome to work with and the only thing I would tell other couples to be aware of is that, because they're a museum, they do have some rules and restrictions other venues may not. But for us, it was 100% worth it!

The Walters Art Museum was a beautiful venue for our wedding reception. We had a wonderful celebration that we will remember for a lifetime. My only critique since the Walters Art Museum was fantastic will hopefully only serve to improve the experience a miniscule more for a future client. This suggestion would be to have a point person at the museum available for each vendor to interact with upon arrival. We had multiple vendors arriving over a few hour time period, and perhaps we are at fault and should have found out in advance how to make this process seamless, but it seemed to possibly create some confusion among a few of our vendors. However, overall, as previously mentioned, our wedding was spectacular.
