When Katie and Kevin contacted us to be their wedding photographer and videographer, we were thrilled to hear that they had chosen the James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art as their venue. The James Museum, located in the heart of downtown St Petersburg, is a stunning space that showcases the rich and diverse heritage of the American West and the beauty of wildlife from around the world We knew that this would be a perfect backdrop for their unique and artistic wedding.

The couple wanted their wedding to reflect their personality and style, so they chose a color palette of rust, terracotta and teal, which complemented the warm tones and textures of the museum. They also added some personal touches, such as pearl necklaces, Kevin's mullet and their light up sign. Their wedding planner, Lauren from MDP Events, did an amazing job of bringing their vision to life and coordinating all the details.

The ceremony took place in the lobby of the museum, where the guests were surrounded by impressive sculptures and water feature. Katie and Kevin exchanged their vows under a beautiful arch decorated with pampas grass and western inspired flowers. The bride looked stunning in her lace gown, while the groom rocked a custom brow suit and a rust-colored tie. Their wedding party, dressed in terracotta, teal accent flowers added a pop of color to the scene.

After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the galleries, where they could admire the artworks and mingle with each other.  We loved how the natural light and the unique backgrounds created some amazing shots of the museum. We went on a tour of the museum stopping for photographs with Katie and Kevin at their favorite pieces. 

The reception was held in the main hall of the museum, where the tables were set with elegant linens, wicker chargers, and terracotta napkins. The centerpieces featured a mix of fresh flowers, gold candles, and geometric modern table numbers. The cake was a two-tiered masterpiece, decorated with beautiful florals. The band, Bay Kings, rocked out the reception with their live music and kept the dance floor packed all night. The guests also had fun with the photo booth, where they could pose with props and take home some memories.

We had a blast documenting Katie and Kevin's wedding at the James Museum. They are an amazing couple and it was truly an honor to photograph their wedding. We wish them all the best in their future together. Thank you for choosing us as your wedding photographer and videographer!
