A beautiful fall day provided set the scene for Becca and Ben’s wedding at the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits. And, as always, local street musician Charlie Cox was at his usual post serenading the guys with his catalogue of music!

Inside the museum the open air atrium was a great place for the couple to have a first look and make use of the tropical setting for some amazing photos!

Once tended by George C Page himself, the atrium is the center of the Page Museum.  This popular exhibit is a quiet spot to stop, take a breather and enjoy the nature.

Becca and Ben chose to have their ceremony on the Page Museum Terrace overlooking the atrium and has sweeping views of the La Brea Tar Pits, Hancock Park and the Hollywood Hills. Their 120 guests easily fit in the space and everyone had a great view!

The arbor  full of local flowers as well as flowers from Ben’s native Australia provided a stunning backdrop for the couple during the ceremony.

After cocktails on the terrace, guests moved into the Page Museum for dinner with an ice age theme.

Each table was labeled with an ice age mammal and actual fossils stood guard over the terrariums and tiny ice age mammal figurines.
