Roanoke has so many great venues for receptions that we had a tough time deciding, but we thought the museum would be very unique and just seemed more FUN than your standard ballroom reception. We wound up so happy with our choice.
It is an amazing venue with great staff and awesome food. They really worked with us to make our day special, and they coordinated well with the other vendors (which is helpful beyond belief, especially if you don't have a wedding planner). We paid extra to rent out the auditorium which adjoins the atrium, which worked out very well for our 220-person wedding. We had plenty of space to seat everyone and had a large bar and dance floor. We also paid for the galleries to stay open which was very neat for our guests. There were many other nice touches to the night; they have a projector available which we used to show photos, we got to take pictures up on the terrace (which would normally have been a great view of the city but it was raining!), and of course entering down the grand staircase was a moment I'll remember forever.
