  • The Chrysler Museum was simply a live action fairytale. It was just beautiful. The staff was very helpful before the wedding. During the wedding they were…nice. Though I understand it, the security was a bit much; they didn’t seem to be very flexible. One example: it was hurricane conditions on the day of my wedding and my mother, who was already dressed, came in through the front door and was promptly asked to go around to the service entrance in the pouring rain where they were letting in the wedding party instead of escorting her through the museum. Rules are one thing but there has to be exceptions sometimes. Bottom line, beautiful place, guests love looking at the exhibits during cocktail hour but be prepared for the security.

  • I have known for a very long time that I wanted to get married at the Chrysler Museum. I am a lover of art history, specifically of the renaissance, baroque, and neoclassical art that dominates the inside and outside of the museum. I chose my venue before I was even officially engaged. So to look back at my experience at the museum, my expectations were high, and for the most part, those expectations were met. Mary Collins was my contact for the venue, and for the most part, she was very responsive and accommodating. The rental was expensive, but the contract included many items that other venues did not. The two main issues that drove me to a less than perfect rating both originate from the idea of preferred vendors. First, as a bride, I was always looking for the best deal and best value. I had no choice over the catering company that I could use for the reception. The company came highly recommended when it came to their food, and this recommendation proved accurate, but as I ex...

  • This location was my first and ONLY choice for a wedding/reception. They were amazing. It was odd having security escort us around but I completely understand why. Plus they were very accommodating. Be aware that their closing time is VERY strict. There is no lingering after your reception time is over. HIGHLY recommend

  • Chrysler Museum of Art was the absolute perfect venue for our wedding. The moment we walked in to Huber Court, we knew we had to have our wedding reception there! Michael and Mary were so helpful throughout the entire process and we felt like they were part of the family by the wedding day! Danny was wonderful to have there on our wedding night to help us out and to make it go smoothly! We have heard from several of our guests that the Chrysler Museum of Art was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever been to. We had the most wonderful experience thanks to the gorgeous museum and their exceptional staff!

  • Absolutely LOVED our experience with the Chrysler Museum! The staff was over-the-top helpful and beyond accommodating. They even opened the museum to us for extra rehearsals. All of the pictures came out stunning-it was the perfect, romantic backdrop for our wedding. You cannot find a more beautiful place to get married in Norfolk. Thanks so much for a WONDERFUL experience!

  • The Chrysler Museum, Mary Collins, and the staff were such a pleasure to work with. After looking at all the venues in Hampton Roads suitable for our wedding, we knew we could not pass up the opportunity to work with Mary Collins at the Chrysler Museum of Art. The Chrysler allowed for the best options rain or shine for a September wedding in Virginia. Between the courtyard, the galleries, and the gardens, there is an amazing array of options for your wedding day. We chose to have our Ceremony inside, Cocktail Hour outside in Mary’s Garden, and our Reception back inside the Courtyard. Due to impending weather, we made a decision at 4:00pm to move the cocktail hour inside to the Ancient Worlds Gallery, which turned out to be absolutely amazing and a huge hit with our guests. The Chrysler Museum allowed for that flexibility 2 ½ hours before the wedding started. Mary answered any questions and accommodated all requests that were in reason. She even allowed us to come see ano... Read more

  • We were married at the Chrysler Museum May 31, 2014, following the renovations. It was absolutely breathtaking! All of the vendors were amazing to work with and Mary is so sweet and helpful. I couldn't imagine a more beautiful place to get married.

  • We had both our ceremony and reception at Chrysler. I couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous venue. More importantly, Mary and her staff were incredible in making sure our day was absolutely perfect.

  • The Chrysler Museum is GORGEOUS for a wedding reception. I loved it, my guests loved it. Mary Collins is extremely nice, responsive and professional and I enjoyed working with her. She was excited and upbeat and accommodating. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was b/c with the museum comes the caterer- which I did not have a good experience with. Its too bad you do not have a choice- even a choice between 2. When one company has a monopoly like that they become lazy and overpriced. Overall my guests and myself were wowed by the venue!

  • Mary at the Chrysler is your go to person! She not only helped with our event details at the museum but also helped us get into contact with potential vendors when we weren't able to reach them. Mary constantly goes the extra mile to keep clients happy! We were able to see the museum during the renovations and she helped us to visualize the final product and think of how we would integrate the beautiful aesthetics of the museum with our money. You don’t need to do too much, because the museum is beautiful already. The only downfall is that you must have a coordinator with a valid business license. This was an added cost that I felt was kind of unnecessary because there are a lot of brides that are very organized on their own and a lot of people can handle the job of coordinating a wedding who may not have a business license (i.e. your family member or church coordinator). Overall our day was amazing and the beautiful venue added that special touch.

  • The only detail of my wedding I had ever planned before I got engaged was to get married the the Chrysler Museum. Everything ended up being more gorgeous than I could have imagined! I got loads of comments on how amazing and unique guests found the location. If you don't mind the museum limitations (and curve balls that may come from traveling exhibits), this is the most amazing place to get married in the area. It was a bit stressful that they were scheduled to be closed for renovations until two months before the wedding. It was frustrating that every time we asked about the re-opening we were told not to worry, everything would be fine, and then the re-opening was pushed back to two weeks before the wedding. There wasn't anything that could be done about it but Mary, our contact at the museum, did a pretty good job of fielding my parents panic. I'm sure they weren't giving her updates on the renovations as weddings are not their top priority (it is a museum). However, I ... Read more

  • The Chrysler museum is an absolutely fantastic location for a wedding. We chose it based on the unique features and it just took our breath away! I would highly recommend this venue if you are looking for something unique yet timeless. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because we weren't able to take pictures in the art galleries, but it's not that big of a deal - there's more than enough other opportunities around the museum!

  • The art museum was beautiful and had all the right elements of a beautiful wedding and reception. My only negative against them would be they do have several rules against what you can and cannot do. Very understandable considering all the valuables but just be sure to ask all questions before signing a contact.

  • Overall, I had a great experience dealing with the CMA. My point of contact changed a few times but within a day or two I was always recontacted by someone to answer my questions. The CMA offers an absolute beautiful space for a wedding/reception, however, I did an all in one wedding where the ceremony and reception were set up together, solely using the Huber Court, so it would have been great receiving a slight discount for that. All in all, it was beautiful and I thank each CMA representative.
