The Knot

My now husband and I fell in love with the GRAM. Great architecture and beautiful galleries. Our Guest loved that they had the option to walk around the Museum during the reception as well as dance the night away. The staff was very professional and helpful. Thank you for helping us pull off an amazing wedding!

We used the GRAM for our wedding reception in June of 2016 and it was absolutely perfect! Everyone we worked with was very helpful, responsive and accommodating. They’re organized and make the planning for your event seamless. In addition to great staff, the venue is so beautiful! I’d definitely recommend the GRAM.

The staff at this gorgeous venue is top notch all the way! From the special events coordinator, Karen, to the AV guy there on our wedding day, they all went ABOVE and BEYOND to help me plan and execute my modern vision. Karen listened to what I wanted and put it into action. The rest of the staff on the day of my wedding was so nice and very professional. Worth every penny, we would have paid much more for this amazing venue because they were so accommodating. We were able to make use of several pieces of furniture already there in the museum to give the dance part of our reception a cool feel without having to spend a lot of money on rentals. Our out-of-town guests were SO impressed. The special events coordinator made herself available to all of my other vendors and acted like a personal wedding planner, and this really made planning my own wedding a total breeze. Our day was perfect thanks to her and the rest of the staff at the GRAM.
