Emily & Stephen, The Museum of Natural History, NYC
Today we’re remembering a wedding that we have yet only shared on film. Emily & Stephen celebrated their marriage at the American Museum of Natural History – an event put on by Tracy Taylor Ward that stands out in our minds.
The event itself was spectacular. Guests enjoyed a memorable celebration beneath the iconic blue whale that hangs from the museum ceiling. Details reflected the theme of the location, like miniature gold dinosaurs at every place setting. A gorgeous Ron Ben-Israel Cake, covered in purple flowers, matched the regality of the day.
What resonated most about this couple’s day was Emily & Stephen’s loving relationship. Their friends and family, who contributed in shaping them as individuals and as a couple, shared in their special dynamic.
This wedding and couple were outstanding – and as always, we were thrilled to be a part of their special day.
