You must see this Jewish wedding surrounded by dinosaurs at the Houston Museum of Natural Science in Houston, Texas. Samantha and Matt are Californians originally from Houston, and they held their wedding in their home city. Things not to miss: the ceremony overlooking the dinosaur skellies in the Paleontology Hall, the Charlotte Olympia cat shoes (cat ladies unite!), and the first dance underneath a T-Rex. The tablescapes were all different, with moss and grass in terrarium glass bells. You may drool over their macaron-covered cake, too.
