Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts

Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts is the oldest fine arts museum in Alabama, and its lakefront setting and idyllic grounds make it a perfect wedding venue for arts-loving couples. Senior Curator Margaret Lynne Ausfeld, tells us why. 


Q: What different areas of the museum are available for use during weddings? 

A: “The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts offers incredible spaces to make all of your ceremony, reception, and after-party dreams a reality. Begin your event with a lakeside wedding ceremony on the Parker Terrace at sunset. Then move to the picturesque three-acre Caddell Sculpture Garden for cocktails. Enjoy dinner in the Lowder Gallery, surrounded by world-class contemporary art. Finish the evening by dancing under the soaring height of the Rotunda – my favorite spot in the museum. Recently, a couple wed in front of the bride’s favorite work from her childhood, John Signer Sargent’s Mrs. Louis E. Raphael (Henriette Goldschmidt).

Q: What is your advice to Southern couples as they select their venue?

A: “We advise couples looking for a venue for their wedding to think through the whole picture. Consider your guests and ask yourself a few questions: Will this venue be easily accessible for family members with mobility issues? Is there adequate parking? Suppose you plan to have a part or all of your event outdoors – does the venue have space indoors to accommodate everything in inclement weather? Lastly, and importantly, I recommend that all couples find an event coordinator they enjoy working with because you will spend a lot of time with them!”
