NC Museum of Art – Blending Art and Modern Style into your Raleigh Wedding

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 have become one of the top trending wedding location choices for brides in the last year and are becoming more popular because of their airy, open spaces and wonderful included art galleries as entertainment for guests.

Situated on acres of land in mid-Raleigh, NCMA offers a spectacular array of beautiful spaces for a memorable wedding day. Their museum grounds have impressive modern sculptures all along the green rolling landscapes of their walking path. 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!
