Real Bull City Wedding: Museum of Life + Science
Brittany and Paul's wedding was at the end of February, though you wouldn't know it since it was about 70 degrees. Such a perfect day for a perfect couple!
The wedding party was 24 strong!! They all got ready at the then Mercury Studios, now known as The Mothership with the talented Stephanie Seville of Makeup Culture. Their day was documented by Kasaundra Felder Photography and some of the crew lounged a bit in MotorCo Parts and Labor too before heading to the ceremony at Museum of Life + Science.
The couple really likes beer. Like really likes it. So they had a very cute "guest book" of pints on a poster that everyone could sign when they arrived. The couple had their first looks in the new outdoor play yard and the guests anxiously awaited nuptials in the large conference area inside. Married by Kenna Covington, in a beautifully personalized ceremony, the couple said 'I Do' and 'Me Too' in front of a backdrop of decorative items and also photos of grandparents that were there in spirit.
The cocktail hour was rocking with Southern Harvest Catering's most loved BBQ sliders and Darnell of Complete DJ got folks out on the dance floor straight away. Throughout the night, guests were welcome to enjoy all that the museum had to offer including the space exhibit and weather exhibits. After first dances, including a special song to honor the bride's uncles, the guests were invited to enjoy a heavy hors d'oeuvres reception in the gallery room and continue dancing and mingling. Southern Harvest featured their mac-n-cheese bar with all the fixins.
In lieu of cake, the couple had dozens and dozens of donuts from Carolina Glazed for dessert and also take away boxes that doubled as their favor.
Because the couple loves movies, each table had a favorite movie and some fun facts to peruse. Each guest got a chance at a scratch off ticket too! Did anyone win?!! We'll never know!
Before the night was over, the Museum got a few furry guests to crash the party. The Bride and Groom got to meet some of the museum residents before they needed to be tucked in for the night.
Speaking of tucked in for the night, the couple was officially sent off down the long corridor with flags they hand made that said phrases like "yea!" and "Hooray"!
The vibe of this wedding was absolutely as playful and fun as the couple themselves.
