Plan on using the words “unique” or “non-traditional” to describe your wedding?  Then you have to check out today’s venue!  The American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM), located at the base of Federal Hill in Baltimore, is the nation’s only museum dedicated to self-taught artistry.  It not only offers uniquely inspiring exhibits for your guests to enjoy, but multiple venues to host both your ceremony and reception of 50 to 450!

Michelle and Vaughn chose to say “i do” on the dramatic spiral staircase (Remember, stairs have many wedding purposes!) of the main museum building, which was once a copper paint factory!  After utilizing the one-of-a-kind art pieces and picturesque outdoor space for photos with Jennifer McMenamin Photography, they moved inside to the fantastic Sculpture Barn for dinner and dancing.  Check out that ceiling!

Jennifer and Heath did things at AVAM a little differently for their wedding!  Their ceremony took place in the museum’s “Visionary Village” where they showcase their largest pieces of innovative art.  After watching the couple tie the knot under that life-sized hot air balloon, guests moved upstairs to yet another reception option at AVAM, the Jim Rouse Visionary Center banquet room.  This space is the museum’s largest, with room for up to 450 guests and an open loft feel.  In contrast to the visual dynamics of the other rental locations, this one acts as a blank slate where couples like Jennifer and Heath can bring their personalities in with lots of fun details, and photographers like Kelly Prizel can capture it all!
