Sara and Matt’s East Garden Ceremony


We are so lucky to have such a beautiful outdoor area for rent here at the Natural History Museum. With several different types of gardens, we will surely be able to help you find the perfect ceremony location!


Sara and Matt were one of the first couples to take advantage of this new area. They chose to use the east garden for their ceremony, which was a perfect size to seat 120 guests.


Sara, being walked down the aisle by her mother, made a dramatic entrance from our Rotunda and down the staircase which was the original entrance to the museum in 1913.


With the Exposition Park Rose Garden as a beautiful backdrop, the ceremony was only the first of what is sure to be a hot spot for NHM weddings!


After the ceremony, guests retreated to the ever-popular the Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Oschin Family Hall of African Mammals for dinner against the backdrop of the African savannah.
