Ellen + Howie
Late Fall Wedding at MASS MoCA
In the heart of the ever-eclectic MASS MoCA, a couple with boundless creativity decided it was the place to tie the knot. It wasn't just a venue for Ellen + Howie; it was a canvas that mirrored their vibrant love and imagination. They allowed the museum's art + artists to whisper their own stories alongside theirs.
Amidst the transformative aura of the Spencer Finch Gallery, Ellen + Howie exchanged their vows beneath a chuppah, symbolizing their first home. The chuppah, intricately adorned with vivid swatches and heartfelt notes from cherished ones, bore the touch of the bride's father, making it a heartfelt testament to family bonds. The atmosphere was electric, with art and tradition intertwining seamlessly.
Following the "I dos," guests moved from the gallery to a magical cocktail space. They arrived to find personalized pop-up face escort cards, an innovative touch crafted lovingly by the couple, etching each guest's presence into the evening's fabric.
The evening unfolded in the grandeur of the South Hall. Beneath the sprawling expanse of a Joe Wardwell mural, a vivid art tapestry set the scene. Guests reveled in a feast for the senses, with the backdrop becoming a silent witness to a night of laughter, dance, love, and memories.
