For any brides looking for a venue that can hold both the wedding and the reception, I would highly recommend this location. All of my Pinterest dreams came true booking this place for my fairly large wedding and the courtyard was absolutely beautiful. Sarah was so helpful and understanding when it came to putting together my special day. I was able to bring in my own vendors and go with her best recommendations. The best part of booking this place is that you're able to help out with the community! There is plenty of space to celebrate and plenty of parking for guests. Definitely the place to go in Corpus Christi for a wedding!!
I had my wedding here in July! Beautiful!! The staff are extremely helpful and kind. Our pictures are so beautiful!! The art is very unique. We had a wonderful experience and could not have asked for a better place for our wedding!

We have a in-house staff member who can create anything from welcome signs, bar menus, chalk signs, wood signs, seating charts, or anything else your heart desires! She can work with you from start to finish; from your vision, to the design and execution. You can provide your own materials or select from a few to rent.
Having your wedding at the Art Center? It doesn't get more convenient than having your signage already at your venue, with the added familiarity of the spaces and knowledge of where signage is best suited.
