Mel Day's second wedding and reception on June 13th were held in what is now known as Marbles Museum, but was previously called "Exploris" and "Children's Museum About the World". It's a somewhat eccentric place for a wedding, but fun and definitely not boring. Above: a buffet centerpiece, partially carrying out the wedding colors of lime green, hot pink and turquoise.
I snapped this cutie pie groomsman, wearing the thistle boutonniere I made for all the guys. I love thistle!
The bride's family provided all the containers. There were three different types, and all had one flower each. I liked these best; turquoise "goblets" with lime spider mums. We had a bit of a scare with those vases; when the other designer put water in them, the blue color started flaking off. The vases had been painted inside, and some of the paint wasn't waterproof. Luckily, it only took off a small part, and it wasn't noticeable once the flowers were inserted. If you are buying colored glassware with the idea of putting water in them, be sure they are waterproof.
The cocktail tables held candles floating in colorful martini glasses. Fun!
This is their candy bar! The colors were luscious (as, I am sure, were the candies.) Everyone got to take home an Asian take-out box with an assortment of candies.
The wedding cake appears to be leaning here, but I think it was my camera angle. By that point in the day, I was leaning.....LOL. The bride and groom on top were Pez candy containers (I think).
The museum's bus made a perfect backdrop for the candy bar, and a perfect place to write some wedding graffiti!
When guests got tired of conversation and dancing, they could play chess! That's an added perk of choosing a museum for your wedding venue.
