Modern Wedding At Denver Museum of Nature and Science With Touches of Yellow

Modern weddings are a true delight.  Typically filled with clean crisp lines, minimalist design & gorgeous locations.  Katie Burgess & Chris Jones opted to celebrate their wedding in a modern style at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, a modern architectural gem.  The ceremony took place in a circular setup on the lawn, while cocktail hour was on the fourth floor observation deck overlooking the Denver skyline!  Our bride & groom kept their style classic with a gorgeous full tulle wedding dress & the groom in a sleek gray suit.  Future couples after a modern wedding, take note!

The Space– I am in an absolute modern tizzy over Denver Museum of Nature and Science!  The nouveau architecture, filled with sleek chrome lines & the use of glass, glass and more glass is a visual stunner.  While the grounds around it are lovely I’m sure, its clear that the show piece here is the building.  The grand room where our couple had their reception as the sun went down is divine!  The natural light that floods that room when the sun is up is indeed heavenly, but I think its the second to last shot that I really love.  Once the sun has gone down, the light from within the building really illuminates the design in a whole new way, revealing new lines & geometric design!

The Florals– Believe it or not, yellow can be a tricky color.  It is a super strong color, one that easily dominates attention.  Without the right eye, it can easily over take things.  I love the way that Cori Cook Floral Design styled the event from the choice of blooms to the perfect amount of reserve when needed.  My favorite, by far, is the bleached branch orchid floral box with billy ball accents on a bed of Spanish moss.  The piece as a whole is eye catching in its beauty and I really love that they went for height here.  As the building has such high vaulted ceilings, letting a few design pieces reach for the sky is a great choice!

The Circles– Bare with, I promise I will make it worth your while!  Whether the couple realizes it or not, this wedding has a couple circular focal points!  To me, circles, when it comes to love & weddings, have an infinity, forever embracing hug to them, rather fitting I’d say!  So where are the circles right?  Firstly the circular set up for the ceremony where family & friends essentially are seated to embrace the couple as they marry.  The use of billy balls in the florals (the ones with the thin stem & yellow ball), the floral balls decorating the ceremony, the choice of round tables at the reception might seem obvious but they count too, AND looking back at that second to last image, the reception space itself, has a giant circle floating above it.  Its almost as if it is a giant sun warming the affair, or a big happy smile looking down on them!
