Congratulations Leah and Alan!



In December the Natural History Museum was very busy with weddings! Towards the end of the month we were happy to congratulate Leah and Alan, who were married in the Haaga Family Rotunda.


Whimsical centerpieces along with colored uplights really brought a sense of fun to our North American Mammal Hall where guests danced the night away under the watchful eyes of the bison!


And no wedding would be complete without a photo shoot in the adjacent Exposition Park Rose Garden! The Haaga Family Rotunda can be seen in the background of this fun shot! On your wedding day at NHM we encourage you to advantage of all the wonderful areas for photo ops! All the amazing photos on this page were courtesy of James Johnson.

Their wedding planner Tobey Dodge (  was so thorough and thoughtful, no stone was left unturned! Our good friend Mark Rivera from TGIS Catering ( once again provided an amazing dinner and helped coordinate the rentals from Signature Party Rentals (

Thank you to Leah and Alan and their families (Hi Denny!) for choosing to spend this very special day at the Natural History Museum. We enjoyed meeting you all and hope you come back to visit! Here’s to a long life of happiness for the Ticklers!
