I know we have talked about venues before but it truly is one of the most important decisions in the wedding planning process. Recently we had the pleasure of working with a fabulous couple Joey and Beth who held their ceremony at The Duke Gardens and the reception at The Nasher Museum of Art.
Choosing a venue like the Nasher creates a unique experience for your guests because it’s not your typical wedding venue. A wedding reception at a museum instantly creates grandeur and is memorable for your guests. Artwork and artifacts serve as natural conversation starters and allow you to cut back on your need for decor.
Look at how cool the ceiling of the Nasher is!
We also want to highlight encorporating traditional elements into your wedding like Joey and Beth did. They included a traditional chuppah for their ceremony. Chuppah’s can be customized to be opulent and extravagant or simple and clean. Joey and Beth chose a beautifully simple chuppah allowing the backdrop of the Duke Gardens to shine through. We think it’s simply stunning!
Another traditional aspect they incorporated was the horah. Festive and steeped in tradition, the horah helped personalize their wedding and created a fun and energetic start to a night of dancing.
Luckily, they didn’t fall out of their chairs!
We just can’t get enough of this fun couple and their flair for the unexpected.
