A Homemade Wedding at American Visionary Art Museum

On this gorgeous, sun drenched morning, an international wedding was celebrated at AVAM.  Sara, of Japanese-American ancestry, wed Xavier.  This was their second ceremony, their first being in Barcelona, Spain, Xavier’s country of origin.

The Visionary Art Museum is a fitting eclectic venue, just right for this diverse and down-to-earth gathering.  Sara’s mother provided the garden flowers in various jars and bottles.  Canned preserves and Japanese origami were on the tables.

Azafran provided a splendid brunch and Sugar Bakers provided a delectable cake.  I enjoyed the casual nature of this family affair and capturing many intimate glimpses of their joy!

    Thanks so much for featuring our daughter’s wedding on your website! It was, indeed, a “homemade” affair, and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the way it all turned out. Michele, you did an amazing job on the photos, which really captured the warmth, the essence, and the spirit of this fun and happy occasion.
    I have a teeny-tiny correction to your notes above: although I did purchase the flowers for the wedding, the beautiful arrangements were created by my dear friend, Liz, who turned the combination of simple wildflowers and antique blue glass jars into works of art.
    Thanks again!
    Jo Anne (mother of the bride)
