Contemporary Wedding At The Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion

I love the quirky beauty that there is to life.  Believe it or not Hilary & Andrew grew up only a mile apart, though never actually meeting until college!  Since home was such a strong focal point for them, celebrating in Toledo was an easy choice! Wanting to embrace a contemporary feel & the sometimes quirkiness that comes with art, the couple choose the sleek open space of the Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion to share with their guests.  With such lovely art already surrounding them, colors & florals were kept to a minimum.  Guests were able to casually stroll through various halls to take in the art while sipping on cocktails & toasting the couple!  The end result is a lighty and airy modern wedding that is a breath of fresh air!

Wedding Buzzwords ~ Modern, Romantic, & Fresh

Our wedding had a contemporary theme. We wanted the venue itself and the art to stand out, but we wanted to add our own style to it as well.  We chose St. Joseph Parish in Sylvania for the ceremony because it was my {the bride’s} church growing up plus it was also where I went to school. We chose the Glass Pavilion at the Toledo Museum of Art because we loved the clean lines and open spaces it had to offer. We liked that guests could go into the different galleries to see stunning works of art. Also, Drew proposed there, so it’s a special place for us.

My {bride} parents , Mike and Cathy Alcala were a huge help in the wedding planning… they organized this wedding while living two thousand miles away in California! Our vendors were incredible, working with us (most of them on very short notice!) to make our day beautiful, memorable, and fun.
