Chelsea and Yaw
Venue: Grounds for Sculpture
Luxury wedding venues aren’t all ballrooms with huge crystal chandelier, especially for our couples. Customization has become a priority for people in many areas…that includes their wedding day.
Yaw and Chelsea’s style is easily described as modern tradition. The couple originally from Princeton, and now living in Manhattan, really loved the modern look. It was equally important to them that tradition play a big part of the wedding day as well.
Grounds for Sculpture is different than many upscale wedding venues in New Jersey for one major reason: It’s not really a venue at all. This is a stunning outdoor art museum that has a 5 star restaurant on site. It’s also the same place that Yaw proposed to Chelsea.
When you visit the venue, you could see how a romantic wedding theme would be easy to accomplish here. As if the overall aesthetic wasn’t enough, add in the proposal and the fact that they both were from Princeton, and what’s more romantic than that?
Tradition didn’t stop at incorporating their home town though. Yaw’s family is originally from Ghana, and having a Ghanaian wedding ceremony was a priority for them. From the Ghanaian wedding dress to the decorations, we hosted this ceremony first, followed by a traditional western ceremony at another spot on the grounds.
Their modern details were infused throughout both ceremonies and into the cocktail hour and reception space as well. A white and green flower combo with square and round tables created a unique look and the perfect vibe for this couple.
