Client Testimonials

The Museum of Fine Arts was the perfect wedding reception location for my husband and I. We wanted something unique, yet close to everything. From initial selection, all the way to post-wedding communication, we have received nothing but the best in service. Four months later I am still receiving compliments from guests telling us how beautiful and perfect our wedding was. I owe it all to everyone at the Museum of Fine Arts for pulling it off without one hitch!

We want to thank you so much for everything you have done. The wedding was really fabulous and we both had a wonderful time. Our guests loved the venue and they really loved the food from start to finish! The staff was professional, efficient and friendly and we are really happy we had our wedding there and you all so richly deserve to be number one on every wedding list that I can think of! We are looking forward to visiting the museum frequently and eating at the Café.

Dallas and I were so pleased with everything at our wedding! The amount of care that was taken to make sure everything was what we wanted, was incredible.  Some venues have a great location, while some have a great staff.  The Museum of Fine Arts has both; an amazing backdrop to hold the wedding that little girls’ dream of and a staff that can’t be beat! Thank you for making our wedding absolutely perfect!

On behalf of the Leadership St. Pete Alumni Association, I would like to thank you, Dr. Lydecker and your staff for providing us with a fabulous venue, an amazing sound system, and the BEST Holiday Social we have had in years! They just KEEP getting better and we were happy to support MFA and spend our evening there with you. 

Thank you, again, the accommodations were perfect!

Our son’s rehearsal dinner, held at the MFA, was absolutely glorious.  Cocktails in the gorgeous gardens and an absolutely delicious dinner in the Marly Room catered by Olympia.  We cannot express our appreciation enough for helping us create such a magical evening.  One our family will always treasure.
