My fiance and I fell in love with the atrium at the Blanton Museum of Art and are so happy that we decided to have our wedding there. The space is absolutely beautiful, and such a romantic venue for an indoor fall wedding. We chose to rent the downstairs for both the ceremony and reception, so during the outside cocktail hour the room was "flipped" by our caterer and rentals vendors. Our guests were supposed to have cocktails and appetizers out on the covered patio outside, but since it rained on our wedding evening, they stayed inside near the lobby entrance and it was just fine.
Candice was extremely easy to work with and organized, and very flexible where she was allowed to be (UT has some strict policies about candles/fire, etc.). She and her staff were running around with walkie-talkies during the wedding and kept everyone organized and in order.
Our wedding was amazing and we could not have asked for a better venue!! It is not the least expensive place to rent, since their base price is only for 4 hours, but I believe it was definitely worth the price. Also bear in mind that if you want to get married during football season, you will have to plan your wedding around home football games.
