There’s nothing like a museum wedding. And you couldn’t ask for a more stunning setting than the Cleveland Museum of Art, where Dara, who works in entertainment and is the founder of her own fragrance and design company, L’or de Seraphine, and Max, an attorney, opted to hold their Jewish wedding.
Full of refined details befitting the elegant setting, this wedding took full advantage of the majestic spaces – both indoor and outdoor – the museum offers. These two had an absolutely stunning outdoor ceremony with a twelve-foot(!) garden chuppah made of boxwood. And we love the emotion and spirit of the ceremony. Don’t miss the exquisite photos from Genevieve Nisly Photography and video from Making the Moment.
And you won’t want to miss the giant puppets Dara and Max brought in for their afterparty, either. But we’ll leave that to the bride, who looked oh so elegant in Oscar de la Renta…
A Museum Wedding
Dara, the bride: The Cleveland Museum of Art. Cleveland, Ohio is the city where my family is deeply rooted. The ceremony was held on the South Terrace just before sunset. The guests entered through the 1916 building and were invited into the Ames Family Atrium. The Atrium is the majestic centerpiece to the museum’s recently completed eight-year expansion and renovation project, designed by Rafael Viñoly. The soaring, three story high ceiling accentuates the grandeur of the glass-enclosed space, centrally located in the heart of the world-renowned galleries of the museum.
