We want to thank WAM and Janice for making this process so incredibly easy, enjoyable, special and fun! We have already received so many compliments on the space and how smoothly things went!
Thank you for making our wedding a special day! We appreciate everything you’ve done to make our vision a reality! It was a pleasure working with you.
The staff was exceptional. Also, working with Janice was a pleasure. My daughter and I visited a number of facilities but the Worcester Art Museum and Janice won us over. It was so organized and ran so smoothly that I was truly impressed. Thank you for making my daughters special day “memorable.”
Everything was wonderful; exceeded our expectations.
Our wedding was beautiful and extremely memorable. Thanks so much for an amazing, once in a lifetime experience.
We recently got married at the WAM - a long distance event I might add.
Janice was great to work with and she coordinated the vendors seamlessly. We weren't bothered by anything on our wedding day. The whole place looked fantastic. If you're looking for some place classy, but a little different for a wedding; then WAM should be on your short list.
Our wedding at WAM was everything we could have hoped for. Every detail was taken care of, every need anticipated before we realized we had it. Guests continue to rave about how “classy and unique” the event was.
Kudos to your entire staff for making our day extraordinary.
Janice was fantastic and a pleasure to work with. She truly cares about making your event perfect and a memorable experience.
We couldn’t have been more pleased! It was such a privilege to be able to have the wedding in such a beautiful and unique space.
We worked with Janice, who was a dream to coordinate with. She was professional and always on top of things. She would answer questions before asked, was always available to reach during business hours, and really made the process of planning go smoothly and effortlessly on our part. (We planned in whirlwind time as well.)
My wedding was a dream come true. It felt as if the wedding were inside a castle, it was so majestic.
Working with Janice was a wonderful experience from beginning to end & WAM is a beautiful and dramatic venue for wedding. All your recommendations about vendors were spot on!
I recently was married at WAM in the Renaissance Court. We hosted the wedding ceremony in this beautiful space and could not have been happier with the museum’s space, dÃ©cor, staff preparations and organization.
Our wedding was wonderful! You made the process very low stress and were helpful every step of the way.
I absolutely loved everything about my wedding at the Worcester Art Museum. Janice was a dream to work with and was very responsive. I cannot wait to see the pictures. The space was put together so beautifully, it met every single one of my expectations.
Several guests said “it was the best ever.”
