Featured Museum Wedding: Joanna and Hebert

Featured Wedding by Jessica Johnston Photography (via RecycledBride.com, one of our lovely guest bloggers!) Are you considering a unique wedding venue, and looking for some serious inspiration? If so, check out this stunning wedding at The Detroit Institute of Arts. Museum weddings are a chic and sophisticated way to say “I Do”, and Joanna and Hebert got it oh so right! The Detroit Institute of Arts houses a wealth of incredible modern and contemporary art; meaning Joanna and Hebert picked a wedding venue already abounding with fabulous backdrops for artsy wedding photography. I love the fusion of modern, elegant sophistication with vintage, artsy touches. Joanna’s birdcage veil (*we're giving one away for this week's Savvy Steal!) was vintage-chic with a bit of Vogue couture thrown in there. And check out the back of Joanna’s Ines Di Santo wedding dress… it brings me back to the Baroque era (a period of opulence and elegance). I could go on and on about this wedding, but I’ll let the pictures to the talking! Some of the drool-worthy details… - An ivy-covered chuppah - Unexpected calla lilies lined the white aisle, bursting from their vases at abstract angles - Mix and match bridesmaids' dresses: they all wore warm slate grey (some with a touch of black), but chose different silhouettes to flatter each girl's figure - Eco-chic succulents, along with more exploding calla lilies, adorned the wedding reception tables - Open-toe gold, ivory and black snake skin bridal heels, each with a chic black rosette - Video screens, in true 2010 iDo fashion! A million thanks to Tracy of RecycledBride for sharing this beyond-beautiful artful wedding with me!!
