  • We didn't end up getting married here but I'd still recommend them. When the original shutdown happened in March they immediately went to work on backup and alternate plans with couples. They allowed us to put soft holds on dates in Fall 2020 - Spring 2021 even though our original contract said we could only postpone up to 6 months out. The staff responded pretty quickly to all emails (including pre-COVID) and were great at answering our questions. Also a good place to get engagement photos!

    Rose, you and Anthony were such an amazing couple to work with from the very beginning! Thank you for your kind review and for being so understanding during this crazy COVID situation. Even though things didn't work out as originally planned, y'all were so sweet to include us in your special day by sending sneak peak photos - we are still swooning over them! We truly wish you both the absolute best in life!!

  • The Mariners' Museum was a fabulous wedding venue! It is beautiful and both inside and out. The staff was absolutely amazing! They worked hard to ensure that we were comfortable with everything about our day (set-up, parking, rehearsal, what would be supplied, etc.) and they were extremely responsive. I could not imagine have my wedding anywhere else and am so appreciative for the staff the worked so hard to help us create a perfect day!

  • The event staff at the Mariner’s Museum truly goes above and beyond! My husband and I had our ceremony in the courtyard and our reception in the Huntington/Anna rooms. Jennifer and all of the ladies in the event staff were professional, prompt, and excited about our big day! Everyone at the museum really went the extra mile, from helping pin on boutonnieres for the boys, to walking around flipping lights on and off to help the photographer! I couldn’t have dreamed of a more beautiful space for our ceremony, or a better group to help us pull it all together!

  • Mariners provides a very comprehensive package (chairs, tables, chair/table set up and breakdown, kitchen, security) at a very reasonable fee. The optional exhibit rental is a nice touch. The venue itself is so beautiful that there is very little need for additional decoration.

  • We are SO HAPPY we chose the Mariners' Museum to use as our wedding venue. I had been looking for a cool spot that had visual elements already in place in the room, that wouldn't require excessive decorating. This was it! We loved the eagle as the back drop for our head table, the large window and lighthouse for our ceremony space, the ship as the dance floor. Everything was so unique compared to more traditional wedding venues, and we took advantage of the option to keep the museum loop open during our reception, which the guests really enjoyed. They had also restructured the packages since we originally signed the contract, and the ability to use the entire main lobby side of the building allowed us to separate the ceremony, cocktail, and reception spaces. The team at the museum was so great to work with. They were very helpful in suggestions for layout and working with our vendors for setup, and I loved that their list of approved caterers helped us easily narrow down options wi... Read more

  • This venue is a spectacular venue! Not only does it have indoor and outdoor options for the bride and groom to choose from, we were able to tailor them based on where we wanted the ceremony, the reception, and the cocktail hour. We chose to have our ceremony inside in the sunken room off the ballroom, our cocktail hour outside in the Virginia Courtyard, and our reception in the grand atrium/ballroom. We could’ve also chosen the front courtyard for something or the front lobby for something, so there are just a lot of mix-and-match options with this venue. We loved the high ceilings and the lighthouse features! They made our wedding dramatic and romantic! For an evening wedding we wanted a candlelit atmosphere and the event staff were unable to turn the lights lower. I was disappointed in this because I was assured on my venue walk-through that we be able to dim the lights very low. It was unfortunate but we got through it. No one probably noticed but me and the photographers. The sta... Read more

  • Our wedding day was perfect! I had been working with The Mariners Museum (Jennifer, Bree, Kelsey) for a year during my planning process and I always got a quick response when I had a dozen questions! The ceremony was outside in the South Courtyard, which was absolutely beautiful and perfect for pictures. Our cocktail hour was along the veranda - it was cold since we had our wedding in mid-November, but it has such a nice ambiance with the string lights. Plus it was a romantic, quiet getaway from the reception! The reception was held in the Huntington and Anna Room, and we had an absolute blast and there was plenty of room for everyone to dance all night long!!

    Brenna, your wedding was stunning and we loved that we got to be a part of your special day! The cooler weather didn't deter anyone from having a great time, and we are so glad you celebrated here with us. Thank you for the kind words and review! We hope to see you around sometime soon!
