Today's wedding isn't technically steam-y, but it does have lots of clock-y... Read more Chad and Renza completely lucked out with the timing of their wedding at the Denver Botanic Gardens last July — the gardens were filled with installations of blown glass from artist Dale Chihuly! I'm an enormous fan of Chihuly glass, so I was super excited to see what a wedding would look like amid his bold and colorful art. The couple chose to keep their wedding small and intimate with just a few family and friends. A string quartet added to the cozily elegant atmosphere. Renza walked herself down the aisle (er, lush, fantasy garden maze, that is), wearing her mom's jewelry. The ceremony took place in front of a Chihuly piece called "Float Boat," a small canoe filled with glass orbs and surrounded by floating glass balls. After a stroll through a garden of super-tall, blue and red Chihuly glass reeds, the couple held a private reception with just a few guests.

Love your shoes! 1 agrees Reply I audibly gasped at these pictures. They lucked out indeed!! Very beautiful. 1 agrees Reply Ooh! Ooh! If you love Chihuly glass sculptures, come to the Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis! We have a whole bunch of Chihuly pieces that the gardens have permanently installed, including a 30-foot (maybe bigger) blue chandelier that hangs from ceiling in the entry building! The rest of the works are sprinkled throughout the rest of the garden, and include multi-colored floating "onions" in the reflecting pools, and reed/viney things in the Climatron (where they keep all of their rainforest plants), among others. The entry fee to the garden isn't too bad either (like $5 I think? I'm not sure; I have a membership, so it's free for me). 1 agrees Reply Thank you so much for this lovely feature! 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
