Magnolia & Pine- Bride at the Museum 2017

As this year’s Bride at the Museum approaches, I’m reflecting on highlights from last year’s event. Emily Katherine Events has had the pleasure of helping organize the North Carolina Museum of History’s annual wedding showcase for the last few years. I love hosting weddings in non-traditional settings, and the Triangle has lots of fantastic options for this! Including of course, museums that offer event rental for weddings and other events.  The NC Museum of History is a perfect wedding venue for history lovers, NC natives, or anyone looking for a non-traditional reception venue in downtown Raleigh. Bride at the Museum is a wonderful opportunity for couples to see the museum decorated for a wedding and meet local vendors who can help pull their vision together.

Last year’s theme was Magnolia and Pine, drawing wedding inspiration from the south and North Carolina’s natural beauty. Check out these photos from last year’s Bride at the Museum, courtesy of IWP Photography.
