Description

My good friend got married this past Halloween and hired me to make her dress (and the bridesmaids, see separate project for those pics!) She is anything but typical when it comes to wedding aesthetic – there were no flowers at the wedding for example, and she encouraged guests to wear costumes. It took place at the Franklin Institute (the science and technology museum) in Philadelphia – which means the ceremony took place in the planetarium, the cocktail hour was in the human bodies exhibit, and the reception was in the main hall of the museum with a giant statue of Ben Franklin looking down on the party. All this explains the black dress, the gas masks, etc. I must say, it was a real amazing experience to be a part of this couple’s big day!
