Colorful, Garden Wedding at the Museum| Houston Museum of Natural Science | Houston, TX

Laura and Evan's wedding at the Houston Museum of Natural Science was a totally unique celebration that broke the mold of traditional weddings. Forget your average ballroom, their wedding was all about bright colors, creative details, and dinosaurs (of course!).

Imagine saying "I do" with a giant T-Rex skeleton as your witness! That's exactly what Laura and Evan did on the Morian Overlook, overlooking the paleontology exhibit. A stunning pressed flower arch on acrylic was their altar, with fresh blooms adding a pop of color on either side.

After tying the knot, guests mingled amongst the fossils in the Paleontology exhibit for a fun cocktail hour. To add a playful touch, gold toy dinosaurs served as table markers, each holding a name tag to guide guests to their seats. Bright linens and charming mini floral arrangements made the cocktail tables extra inviting.

A welcome table greeted everyone near a museum exhibit. It sported a matching bright tablecloth and displayed a collection of guestbook, card box, and photos – a mix of keepsakes Laura and Evan wanted to use to personalize the table even more. 

The Houston Museum of Natural Science vibes continued at the reception. Guest tables were straight-up gorgeous with crisp white linens, colorful napkins, and fancy plates. Simple menus with floral accents were placed at each sea., and the table numbers were made with pressed flowers for a fun touch. Gold silverware, clear glasses, and blue candles completed the cool, modern vibe.

But the centerpieces were the real showstoppers. Some tables featured "cloches" – glass domes housing a mix of flowers and butterflies, illuminated by twinkling fairy lights and blue votive candles. Others opted for dramatic low floral arrangements overflowing with colorful blooms and greenery, accented with even more blue candles. 

The head table mirrored the style of the guest tables, with the same linens, chargers, and place settings. The centerpiece was a captivating mix of ivory LED taper candles interspersed with small ikebana-style floral arrangements in white dishes. We even set up a table draped in a gold linen for the cake to be displayed, which made for some amazing photos!
