Dana and Matt wanted a wedding that they could describe as “simply elegant” with a neutral color palette. When choosing the location they knew The Chrysler Museum of Art would be perfect! With it's beautiful stone staircase and high ceilings in Huber Court, its no surprise this venue stole their hearts from the moment they saw it.
Dana told us: “I let Matt pick the color of his suits and tie. I thought he did a great job and loved the Navy & Silver together so that was pretty easy! As for my dress, I only went to 3 stores and I was sold on the “Nova” dress by Willow by Watters. The thing I loved most about it was the 2 tone! The nude top made the beading pop more on the top half while the bottom was light and airy. As soon as I tried it on I said “this is so ME!” and my dress shopping was done!”
The gorgeous florals played on the neutral palette bringing in white and a touch of blush. Roses and hydrangeas filled the bouquets along with high and low arrangements for the tables.
For wedding favors, the couple chose Tic Tacs with a customized label from Etsy with their names and date. The labels said “Mint to Be”. Matt & Dana stuck the labels on all of the Tic Tacs themselves.
We love museum weddings for their charm and uniqueness and this stunning Chrysler Museum of Art wedding is no exception!
Tell us about the proposal.
Matt and I got engaged in Boston. In September 2016 we took a trip there and absolutely fell in love with the city. In Spring of 2018 we went back and Matt had planned to purpose in my favorite spot Quincy Market. Turns out it was freezing & snowing that day and I may have redirected us so that Matt wasn't able to purpose in that spot. Whoops! Let's just say he had to find the right moment later that evening. As we were getting ready to head out to dinner, Matt proposed and I was so surprised! After questioning me several times about whether or not I had everything, and me insisting that I did, he finally said “what about this?” I turned around and of course “this” was an engagement ring, which had belonged to my grandmother.
What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?
Finding the right photographer. We wanted someone we were both comfortable with so that our pictures would be natural and not forceful. We found that in Kelley and look forward to using her again in the future! We splurged on adding a videographer last minute. So glad we did because Cory Wright with Vision Quest production did an amazing job on our wedding highlight film.
What were your favorite parts of the day?
Having all of our family & friends there to celebrate with us! We had so much fun seeing relatives that we have not seen in a while and dancing the night away. Many people told us to make sure the two of us truly enjoy our night because it goes by so fast, and we certainly did! We ate, we danced, and most importantly we became husband and wife. 🙂
