Weddings at NC Museum of Art – NCMA in Raleigh NC

In addition to being one of the most beautiful museums with permanent masterpieces and worldwide sought-after visiting collections, the NC Museum of Art offers event spaces that are unique like no other Triangle venue. Museums are popular event spaces because of their airy, open spaces and wonderful included art galleries as entertainment for guests.

For NCMA, the museum is even more appealing because it is situated on acres of land in Raleigh. So, NCMA offers a spectacular array of beautiful spaces for a memorable wedding ceremony locations outdoors. Their museum grounds have impressive modern sculptures all along the green rolling landscapes of their walking path, which lend themselves to beautiful photo opportunities. Some of our favorite wedding images ever are those we’ve seen of wedding couples outdoors with the special and enormous works of art as their backdrop. What a wonderful way to create your own portrait as a work of art for your home.

Morgan and Brittany made all of my wedding vision come to life. I’m a Type A bride and they were the only two I would have trusted to execute on all the details. They were a dream to work with!
