Modern Art Museum Wedding: Kathleen + Allan

From just a quick glance at that photo above, we knew we’d love Kathleen + Allan BIG time! They’re creative, fun, and a tad offbeat, and they wanted their Riverside Art Museum wedding to reflect just that! When it came to the day’s event design, their goal was for everything to feel effortless, but still stylish, and to incorporate as much of themselves (and the things they love) as they could into the celebration. And the museum itself had just the quirky feel that they were going for; they loved that they could have the ceremony in one of the galleries and an alfresco reception out on the rooftop! We think it sounds pretty perfect, too!

Caleb John Hill, thanks so much for sharing these beautiful photos with us today and Kathleen + Allan, congratulations! We wish you all the best!
