Bright + Modern Art Museum Wedding in Milwaukee

I adore all the unique architecture of today’s fabulous wedding venue! Captured by Heather Cook Elliot Photography, Margaret and Andrew were married on a stunning July day at the modern Milwaukee Art Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The museum features a soaring Santiago Calatrava designed brise soleil, defined by sleek white ribs. Soft light is found throughout the museum, with fabulous Calder mobiles filling architectural voids. Margaret and Andrew shared a first look under a large Calder mobile; Margaret descending the dramatic, wide, curved staircase to meet Andrew in a private cylindrical room. A simple color palette of black and white with hints of navy and green allowed the gorgeous architecture and art of the venue to shine.

Breathtaking Modern White Art Museum Inspiration Session

My apologies for the lack of posting recently, but I promise you that this fabulous inspiration session is worth the wait! Captured by Djamel Photography, this modern styled shoot combines crisp white details in a wonderful art museum setting for some stylish inspiration. A backdrop of floating orchids is perfect against the textural art. I also love the architectural floral arrangements and swanky lounge seating. A pink, square, three-tiered cake with a marbled finish is the perfect complement to the otherwise white decor. Also, who doesn’t love a session with an adorable bulldog puppy?

A few words from the photographer:

This modern inspired shoot was created with clean, simple and white as an inspiration. Djamel with Djamel Photography had in mind a small contemporary art museum in the heart of St. Petersburg, Florida. The large textural art by Syliva Hommert in the Mindy Solomon Museum made a perfect backdrop for the shoot. FH Weddings leather serpentine shaped sectional along with the backdrop of hanging Cattleya orchids made a simple and clean modern setting. Anglo Couture’s sleek straight lined wedding dress accented with a thin silver belt made a stunning statement on the model. So many fabulous details such as the marble cake to the absolutely adorable French bulldog puppy made this modern shoot a big hit.
