Claire and Brandon’s Toledo Museum of Art Wedding and Glass Pavilion Wedding was the perfect balance of classic, modern, whimsy and elegance thanks in part to the architecture and artwork that served as a backdrop for the couple’s beautiful day.
The wedding ceremony took place in the art museum’s Great Gallery with the couple and their guests surrounded by classic works of art. After the ceremony, they descended the steps of the classically columned art museum to a cool and colorful slinky salute. Claire and Brandon then led their guests across the street past an Alexander Calder sculpture into the Glass Pavilion – a postmodernist dream – a curved glass structure that allows the interior and exterior of the building to blend seamlessly. Billy balls added a perfect pop of yellow to the sleek and monochromatic pavilion.
The museum was founded in 1901 by Edward Libbey, owner of The Libbey Glass Company. Toledo is known as Glass City and that history was infused into the wedding day with a glass blowing exhibit during the cocktail hour. As the sunny fall day turned into a cool fall night, the party glowed warmly through the shimmering glass.
