For unconventional couples, a Wedding Ceremony or Reception at the Mead Center for American Theater is a theatrical event you’ll never forget. The striking, yet intimate, Kogod Cradle is a stunning setting in which to say “I do.” Afterwards, the magnificent views of the waterfront while dining in the Molly Smith Study or Grand Lobby set a dramatic tone for the most important event of your lives.
