In this blog post I am going to tell you how and why you should elope in a museum! If you are wondering if eloping is right for you, check out this blog post, then come back here to decide if a museum is a right fit for you 🙂
Eloping in a museum can be a unique and memorable experience for several reasons:
Stunning Backdrops: Museums often have beautiful and unique architectural features, artwork, and exhibits that provide a stunning backdrop for wedding photos. The grandeur of a museum setting can add an extra level of elegance and sophistication to your elopement.
Intimate Setting: Eloping in a museum can offer a private and intimate setting that is perfect for a micro wedding. Museums can be quieter than other public places, allowing you to exchange vows and make your commitments to each other in a peaceful and meaningful way.
Indoor Space: By eloping in a museum, you’ll have a beautiful indoor space that can offer shelter from the elements, which can be especially important if you’re getting married in a location with unpredictable weather!!
Unique Experience: Getting married in a museum is not a common occurrence, so it can be a unique and special experience that you’ll remember for a lifetime. You’ll also have the opportunity to incorporate museum exhibits or artwork into your elopement, making it an even more personalized and memorable event.
Overall, eloping in a museum can be a wonderful choice for couples looking for a unique, intimate, and beautiful setting to exchange vows and celebrate their love! I love to create art around art hehe.

Now let’s get into the HOW of eloping in a museum… here are some steps you can follow to plan your special day:
Choose the Right Museum: Start by researching museums in your area that would be suitable for an elopement. Consider the museum’s size, the exhibits or artwork on display, and any specific rules or regulations they may have.
Check for Availability: Once you’ve identified a few potential museums, contact them to check their availability for your desired date and time.
Obtain Permits: Depending on the museum, you may need to obtain permits or pay fees to hold your elopement on their premises. Be sure to check with the museum’s events department or administration to determine what is required.
Decide on the Details: Decide on the specifics of your elopement, such as what you’ll wear, who will officiate the ceremony, and if you’ll have any guests or witnesses. Consider the time of day and the lighting in the museum, and plan accordingly.
Book a Photographer: Hiring a professional photographer can help you capture beautiful photos of your elopement and the unique museum setting. Look for a photographer with experience shooting in museums or other indoor settings… AKA me hehe.

Enjoy Your Special Day: On the day of your elopement, arrive at the museum early to ensure everything is in place. Take some time to soak in the beauty of the museum, and enjoy the special moment with your partner!!!
