It’s International Museum Day! To celebrate, we’re featuring weddings we took part in at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, which is offering FREE admission all day in honor of the holiday, and at the National Ornamental and Metal Museum.
This was a beautiful summer wedding at the Dixon in mid-June 2010 designed by our friends over at Social Butterflies.
The tent was a 33′ wide frame with a clear top, which did a fabulous job keeping out some of the summer heat in Memphis (that all brides like to avoid) with the help of fans and a nice breeze. Mahaffey also provided the gorgeous gold chandeliers, mahogany chiavari chairs, IC dance floor and the stage for the band to play for the bride and groom’s first dances as a married couple.
The orange and brown accents, great colors for the 2011 wedding season, were brought out in the solid poly linens mixed with bengaline specialty linens.
Mahaffey also provided the cool lounge area on the dance floor, complete with leather furniture, pillows and a swanky carpet.
The National Ornamental Metal Museum is a such a unique and beautiful venue for any wedding or event. We took part in a wedding there last spring, also designed by Social Butterflies.
We provided a 33′ by 82′ clear top tent with beautiful lighting for this outdoor wedding reception.
Happy International Museum Day and Wedding Wednesday to all the planning brides out there!
