"During our event, the different galleries were open, so, if you have a cocktail hour or if guests arrive early, they are welcome to view the different art work and keep themselves entertained instead of sitting at a table and waiting. Overall, it was a very pleasurable experience and wonderful people to work with!" - Aimee, WeddingWire

"This venue was a great choice for Ben and I. Having the artwork for our guest to look at was an added pleasure. Glenda and the gang were great to work with." - Ronnie, WedidngWire

"By far, Art Works was the easiest, most helpful venue to work with on my wedding day! They were very responsive with any question I had, and anytime I asked if I could do something their answer was "yes!" They were the most laid back venue. There were no restrictions on which vendors or caterers I could use. They let me bring in decorations, alcohol, etc. starting the weekend before the event, which helped me immensely, because I don't think I could have gotten all of those items to the venue the day before or the day of. They have many different package options to suit your every need. I was very pleased and have already recommended them to a few people. Talk about easy and stress free!" - Shannon, WeddingWire
