It’s often said that the best things in life are worth waiting for, and that couldn’t be more true for the wedding of Allie and John Murphy. The wedding was postponed three times due to the pandemic; but once the green light was given, the Art Museum of South Texas proved to be the perfect backdrop to this couple’s memorable night. 

A Personal Touch

Customizing your decor elements aids in making sure your special night is unforgettable. For this wedding, bigger details such as a monogrammed dance floor and aisle runner made an impact; while smaller details including a cocktail topper with an image of the bride and groom added sentimental touches. 


Elegant Elements. 

A regal color palette of black and white was chosen for this grand affair. A seated dinner in the Singer Gallery featured tables flooded with candles, white orchids and roses, and custom acrylic menus detailing all four courses.
