  • We wanted an interesting venue that we wouldn't have to work hard to decorate, and the deCordova fit our bill perfectly. The sculptures scattered across the grounds make a striking impression and served as great backdrops for our wedding photos (we hope; still waiting on our photographers to send those). The Dewey gallery, where we held our reception, already had art on the walls, so that was one less thing for us to spend time and money on. Our guests who didn't want to hit the dance floor were able to wander the museum to check out the exhibits or hang out on the terrace. Lindsay is everything you'd want in an event coordinator: experienced, kind, and totally unflappable.

  • We had an incredible wedding at deCordova. The experience working with them was enjoyable. Everyone was responsive, helpful and professional. We had our wedding outdoors in August. Our cocktail hour was on the expansive and beautiful terrace, and our reception in the Dewey gallery. We also made use of the grounds for photos (and were lent a golf cart to get around quickly!) as well as thas roof deck. We hope this museum lives on for many generations to come!

  • My husband and I have always loved coming to the deCordova Sculpture garden and museum because it is a wonderful place to explore, view contemporary art, and to get away from the city. As a wedding venue it was a great choice for us as it had both the natural setting he wanted and a contemporary quasi urban feel I wanted. In addition, the customer service we received was amazing. Jevon Biffinger was an incredible event manager. She answered all of our questions promptly, calmed my anxieties easily, and was warm and professional in all of our interactions. During our walk through, it was easy to envision how everything would run for the event (even in the case of rain) and so I felt so much more at ease once the day came around. On the day of the event itself, everything was perfect. All the staff were professional and warm, and I couldn't ask for anything more. The price tag is a bit steep, but I think it's worth it if you want an unforgettable event at a truly unique venue and amazing... Read more

  • The deCordova Museum is an exceptionally beautiful space for a wedding. Initially we had plans to have our ceremony on the rooftop terrace, which provides breathtaking views of the nearby lake and surrounding woods. However, it was drizzling on the day of our wedding so we were moved indoors into the main gallery, which turned out to be perfect for our small (65 guests) wedding. The cocktail hour was held in the open space near the galleries, and the reception was held in the Dewey Gallery. The creative uses of all the spaces really made our wedding feel luxurious. Even the rain was a welcome surprise - the woods were transformed into a romantic, foggy dream, creating a surreal background for our pictures. Jessica Kriley, the events director, could not be more professional and was an absolute delight to work with. She is extremely flexible and easy-going, and creatively constructive, helping you make important decisions. She was punctual and responsive, always answering our question... Read more

  • The deCordova is a wonderful setting for a wedding. The only downside is that you have to use their "trusted vendors" for catering, which generally cost more than other caterers you can shop around for. Also, the venue closes at 12:00am at the latest (and you have to pay for an extra hour to allow it to go that late), with the last drink being allowed at 11:00pm. The ceremony can not start until 6:30, so it does not give you much time for the party. But the museum is beautiful and everyone seemed to love the chance to party amongst modern art.

  • I am now a lifelong deCordova fan! My artistic husband found the place while searching for venues that allow you to bring your own liquor (he works in the industry), and I insisted that we could not afford it. I agreed to take a tour and we both fell in love with the space. Jessica was always extremely responsive and answered every question I had during the planning process. deCordova has to have tight restrictions as far as timing, since they are an operating museum, so our ceremony could not begin until 6:30pm. This was not ideal for me but ended up working out quite well. They provided a great "back-up" location in case our outdoor ceremony was not possible due to weather, etc. Jessica also sent us previews of the collections that would be on display during our wedding, which allowed us to plan decor accordingly. When we dropped off liquor/decor the day before the wedding, a staff member (I wish I got his name) went above and beyond helping us bring everything in. He really t... Read more

  • We loved this venue. The roof deck is perfect for a cocktail hour and the museum is something very special. Different than your typical reception hall. Perfect for a mid-sized wedding (50-100) people, more than that and it may get a little cramped. Book early as their weekends fill up very quick.

  • It's a beautiful setting, with incredible views and lots of options for the ceremony. When an art installation got in the way of where we had planned the service, we found a new spot with the help of museum event planning staff that, looking back, was even better. The staff also accommodated an hour early start, which was helpful. We have wonderful memories and plan on returning soon on our anniversary for a stroll and to see the latest artwork.
