Something magical happens when two college sweethearts with a love for art wed at the perfect museum venue, as captured to perfection by Alyssa Maloof Photography. Set in the picture perfect gardens of the Rodin Museum complete with a center fountain, lush gardens, gorgeous sculptures and a string quartet, all the beautiful details are waiting for you in The Vault!
From The Bride…Eric and I met five years prior at The University of Maryland College Park. He was about to graduate and leave to go to law school in Philadelphia and I had another two years to finish my Masters. We reconnected a year later and after I moved to Philadelphia we started to think long term. We got engaged shortly after in New York City.
After we got engaged we took some time to look for the perfect venue. We knew we wanted something small and intimate. Once we stepped into the Rodin Museum we knew it was meant to be. Perfectly situated in the center of Philadelphia, with a beautiful center fountain complete with lush gardens and famous sculptures from Auguste Rodin it was the perfect setting for our special day. Plus Eric’s father is an artist and Eric hold his undergraduate degree in art history so it all felt so perfect for us.
The day of our wedding could not have been more beautiful. A variety of flowers were in bloom and the sun was shining bright. Eric and I planned to have a string quartet play throughout the ceremony and reception with a mix of classical and contemporary songs. The cocktail hour was set outside in the gardens where guests enjoyed speciality his and her cocktails. Once inside for dinner, guests enjoyed viewing different sculptures on display such as “The Kiss”. After dinner was complete, Eric and I opted out of the traditional wedding cake and went for a local ice cream company that served tasty and unique flavors for our guests to enjoy. The wedding day was completed outside with lighted candles and ice cream under the stars.
