Penn Museum Philadelphia Wedding Photojournalism
The bride and her bridesmaid were posing in the beautiful gardens of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Philadelphia for their bride and bridesmaid portraits. The lush garden is the perfect place for a first look and it was here that the groom waited nervously to see his bride in her beautiful wedding dress prior to these images.
Located in the heart of Philadelphia, the museum was founded in 1887 and is one of the largest archeology and anthropology research museums in the world. If you are looking to get married amongst spectacular ancient galleries this is the right place. Inside he museum are the upper and lower Egyptian galleries, a section of the museum where pharaohs and mummies watch you say I do. Or it can also accommodate a spectacular reception with ample space for you and your guest to dance. The Chinese Rotunda is the home of some of the rarest artifacts from ancient China and the largest event space in the Museum. This is where you will be served an excellent dinner if you hold your sit down dinner here.
And if you prefer an outdoor wedding the ceremony can be held in the lush museum gardens with mosaics from the Tiffany Glass Company.
