We here at the Natural History Museum were fortunate enought to have Alix and Shawn celebrate their wedding here! This is easily one of the most creative couples we have ever encountered. They created everything from the invitations to the dress. Alix even found the time to make stuffed animal place cards/gifts for her guests! Their suggested attire for the evening was “Vintage” and their guests seemed to have a ball, as there were clothes from every time period imaginable!
They chose to have the ceremony in the African Mammal Hall, dinner in the Rotunda and dancing in the Fin Whale Passage. I would love nothing more than to post every single picture up here, but Alix has a great blog where she has these photos posted (http://cuteanddelicious.com/2011/05/the-wedding-part-2/) so I will encourage you to head over that way and check them out!
The photographer for the evening was from Photo Pink and you can take a look at their work at http://www.photopinknyc.com/.
