While Courtney and Derek are planning their nighttime winter wedding, the two have always had a strong desire to have beautiful natural light photographs to add to their memory collection. So, naturally, a styled shoot was born. The couple took the unconventional route for their setting, choosing the unique location of The Perot Museum of Nature and Science. As you can see from the photos below, their chemistry expands far wider than the museum can hold.
“Not many people are aware that the Dallas Perot Museum actually holds weddings and big events,” says Anna Smith of Anna Smith Photography. “It is gorgeous. Yes, there are dinosaurs and minerals and discovery world, however it is one of the most stunning architecturally gorgeous places in the Dallas Metroplex.”
“We wanted to have a stunning floral design,” Smith adds, “Everly Alaine Florals delivered just that in the gorgeous loose, bright and organic bouquets, boutonniere and floral crown for Courtney.”
“Lots of greenery, color, texture, and uncommon elements were the inspiration for this shoot. The red, pink and ivory palette of the floral design tied in Courtney’s gorgeous Modern Trousseau ivory gown from Patsy’s Bridal and Derek’s timeless tuxedo from Culwell & Son.”
“There is a modern feel to the open spaces and soaring ceilings, glass walls revealing downtown and a beautiful courtyard. The museum is breathtaking at sunset and gave us the best glowing sunset photos.”
Absolutely stunning shots. What an exquisite shoot for a dazzling couple. What better a location to capture one’s endless love than a history museum? Timeless, elegant, natural, remarkable. Perhaps it’s time for you and your groom to tour a number of museums?
