When walking through a museum, marveling at the paintings and artifacts that are showcased and preserved in its spaces, it is not often one pays much attention to what is outside of those walls. Yet, housed within the property of the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art, home to the largest collection of Florida themed oil and watercolor paintings in the world, is a stunning outdoor courtyard area perfectly suited to capture a timeless celebration like this styled wedding captured by Kt Crabb Photography.

Partnering with Cherry Blossom Events and a number of talented vendors in the local community, the goal of this styled shoot was to extend the beauty of the Museum's gorgeous interior artwork and architectural design, with the natural backdrop of the sunny outdoors. The photo shoot highlighted current trends of the year including the Pantone Color of the Year, Ultra Violet, geometric shapes, mixed metals of gold, brass, and copper, with a touch of marble. Soft purple hues, twinkling market lights above, and a real-life couple radiating love only added to the harmonious shoot between vendors and the romantic design details. Enjoy the images, embrace the Florida outdoors, and realize that there is always more beauty to a museum than meets the eye. 

To book a walk-through of all the wonderful spaces available for wedding ceremonies and receptions at the Museum of Arts & Sciences and the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art, call the Director of Sales and Special Events, Alex Middleton at 386-255-0285 ext. 340 or email

Vendors We Love

When planning a special event, finding the right vendors can be overwhelming to navigate. Having the right vendors is a key ingredient to ensuring a successful event. Collaboration and coordination between our venue and vendors are important. We have created a list that highlights local vendors with whom the Museum has established a trusting relationship, guaranteeing a high level of professionalism, expertise, and high-quality service for our clients.
