Marley Alig, the team at Brûlée and the Please Touch Museum staff are the epitome of excellence. If we had to do a wedding all over again, I would only do it with this team. We are from Washington, DC and finding an entire complement of key people to make our daughter's wedding the fairy tale she wanted could not be found in Washington, period.Price, environment, uniqueness of facilities, and outstanding menu and wait service was nothing short of the best!
We had our wedding reception at the Please Touch Museum, and we couldn't have picked a more perfect venue! We wanted a unique venue and something different than the typical ballroom wedding. We had our cocktail hour in the Carousel House. It was whimsical, elegant, and fun. Even adult guests enjoyed a ride on the carousel! Dinner and dancing were in Hamilton Hall, which is totally breathtaking, especially with the right lighting and draping. Our guests were blown away by how gorgeous the space is. The service during our reception was also impeccable. Guests at each table were all served dinner at exactly the same time. I've never seen this kind of service before, and several of our guests commented on how impressed they were. My husband and I also had a separate attendant just for us, and she was very attentive and made sure we never had to get up to get a drink. The whole evening went smoothly, which couldn't have been as easy feat for the staff with a reception for 300 guests!The food was also excellent. Brulee even customized an Indian chef action station for us during cocktail hour, which was delicious! The h'orderves during cocktail hour and the entrees during dinner were also fanstastic. Overall, we were thrilled with how our wedding went and owe much of that to everyone at the Please Touch Museum and Brulee!
