Guggenheim NYC Wedding Photos: Julia and Grant

Julia and Grant had their first date at the Guggenheim Museum. Since they picked the Lotos Club as their wedding venue, just 20 blocks south of the Guggenheim off 5th Avenue, they couldn’t resist planning a detour to the museum for wedding day portraits.

Their wedding was on a brisk day in March, but it was seasonable enough that the whole wedding party was able to spend time in Central Park, goofing off and posing for the camera. Julia glowed as she showed off her simple sheath wedding dress on a rocky outcrop overlooking the park.

Grant contacted the Guggenheim Museum before their wedding day to inquire about whether a permit was required. Their press office responded with a very sweet reply, explaining that “the use of large photographic/filming equipment or any tripod is not permitted inside the museum,” but that it would be ok to use:

“a small camera to take photos as a visitor to the museum, as part of our visitor photo policy. The photo policy outside is looser — as long as the guards outside do not feel it is unsafe to our visitors for you to take photos (ie: blocking traffic or entrances/exits) you are allowed to use your equipment outside of the museum. Hope that is helpful, and congratulations to you and your fiance!”

As you can see, Kyo took advantage of their brief time at the museum for some very memorable portraits. We love the wide shot of the two of them looking out over the museum lobby from the building’s signature white spiral ramp, with the brilliant red Alexander Calder mobile in the foreground.

After portraits, Julia and Grant returned to the Lotos Club for a ceremony decorated with cherry blossom branches. David Medina from 74 Events DJ’d their reception and kept everyone dancing in the Lotos Club’s elegant, wood-panelled library.

Before the wedding, Julia told us that her own parents’ wedding had been filled with drama because her mother’s family, who were Roman Catholic, and her father’s family, who were Jewish, were not pleased about their inter-faith marriage. Julia, on the other hand, got exactly what she wanted: a wedding that was “purely happy.”
