Weddings, Geeks and Science!

Location, Location, Location. It can make or break you in business, but it’s also pretty important when you’re planning a wedding. Where does a bride hold the event she’s been planning in her head since preschool? Oh, admit it, if you’re a girl then you’ve been planning it for at least that long if not longer. And who hasn’t had an ever changing list of bridesmaids in their head since before they even had a boyfriend? If you’re like most women, then you probably imagined your wedding reception at a swanky hotel or a cozy little inn. But maybe, if you’re a bit of a geek, then your perfect location has the names of famous scientists engraved on the walls, full-scale dinosaur models and working Tesla Coils.
That’s what Sarah Nelson thought when she got married last October at the Museum of Science in Boston, Massachusetts. While looking around theknot.com a simple location search turned up the museum and she knew it was the place for her wedding. The options were incredible. You could pretty much rent out the whole museum after hours, getting married in the Mugar Omni Theater, or the Planetarium or surrounded by Tesla Coils. The museum even has a wedding coordinator who will help you plan the details and two assistants that are all yours on your special day. And forget pictures in gazebos or standing on quaint bridges. Sarah and her new husband Simon got to pose with dinosaurs and satellites and giant globes. Yeah, these are not your everyday wedding photos.
