As an art history lover, museums are one of my favorite venues for a wedding. That’s why I love today’s Canadian wedding from Tamara Lockwood. With all the lush and romantic florals and handmade details, this is one of the sweetest museum weddings I’ve seen. And how cute are the bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts? Such fun boxes this couple put together.
We got married at Museum London, in London, Ontario, but not before doing our “first look” photos at Delaware Hall at Western University, which was actually the student residence we first met. After having nearly an eight year relationship, much of it long distance, our priority for the day was celebrating and thanking our friends and family for helping us get to where we were.
Planning consisted of working with the caterer to come up with a great diverse menu and finding an awesome band to get people dancing. However, we also recognized not everyone likes to dance the night away, which is why we set up at social area, stocked with some of our personal favorite games.
The museum was great for decor. I could be minimal because it didn’t need covering/dressing up, so I could focus on smaller details. I gravitated towards the living garden theme because of the relaxed social atmosphere it made me think of. It also allowed me to exhibit my love of succulents! I spent a lot of time constructing the succulent frames used that day (which I thought tied in well with the museum), and my MOH and I picked out all the succulents used in the flowers/decor. The best thing about the succulents is that they are another piece of that day that we get to keep as a reminder in our home!
