The George & Leah McKenna Museum of African American Art is a stunning place to celebrate the most romantic day of your life.

The beautifully renovated estate now features gorgeous wood floors, exposed brick interior walls, and an abundance of natural light. With 10,000 square feet of elegantly appointed space, the one-of-a-kind venue offers countless possibilities for your wedding ceremony and reception. The McKenna Museum is a non-profit organization that collects and preserves both works by African American artists and other art that depicts African American life. Host your wedding festivities in its spectacular event space and you will not only have a beautiful and unforgettable celebration but will also be supporting an important organization.
