We had our wedding at the Queens Museum and absolutely loved it. It is a spectacular venue—everyone was commenting about how amazing it was all night—and we highly recommend it. It also still kind of feels like an ‘undiscovered’ venue (unlike L...
iberty Warehouse, etc), so we felt lucky enough to get married somewhere that wasn’t overdone and our friends hadn’t heard of before.
What also made the Queens Museum so special was the fact that Abagail Kirsch is the exclusive catering company there. The AK team consists of absolute PROS - they made it a very seamless process for us, and were more than patient with all of our questions. And—to top it all off—the food was incredible. So many guests told us it was the best wedding meal they have ever had. The entire team was so gracious and we really just couldn’t have been happier.
Madison was our primary POC at Abagail Kirsch and we loved working with her. She sat through so many calls and meetings with us, and answered all of questions—including ones that had nothing to do with catering. The fact that our night ran so seamlessly was all because of her. I will note is that AK has an event every weekend, so responses become quicker as you get closer to the event, as the questions you’re asking become more urgent.
Lastly - you are getting married in a museum. Museums can change art whenever they want, and you have to be ready for that. We had an installation that went up a few weeks before our wedding that changed the aesthetic of the interior of the museum. Abagail Kirsch very much partnered with us to make it as presentable as possible, but there were artistic elements we weren’t expecting that we had to accept.
