There are many places in Galveston that make a perfect setting to tie the knot. It’s an island beach town with an island beach town feel. If, of all the beachside options for a wedding location, someone told you they had chosen a museum, you’d be surprised, right? That’s just what happened with Jason and Sarah Hibbs, who were married at the Bryan Museum on Saturday, May 20th, 2017. The venue is a repurposed orphan shelter, showcasing art and cultural exhibits of Texas and the American West. Adorned with carefully manicured gardens, the exterior of the building offered almost as much to appreciate on the outside as on the inside. An excellent choice, by any standards.
While pictures were not permitted inside the museum, there were plenty of great photo opportunities on the grounds, which was made easy by such photogenic subjects.
The groomsmen were provided the ‘Captain’s Quarters’ to dress. A low ceilinged room with sofas, a television, a card table and a really sweet chair. We convinced the groom not to steal it.
From the Bride: Jason and I met on what we assumed would be a regular night out with friends. One of the guys he was out with sat down at the same table as me and my girlfriend and the rest is history! We started talking and hit it off from the start and have been inseparable ever since.
As soon as we toured the museum grounds, we knew it was the venue for us. The gardens are so beautiful and the conservatory is spectacular. We opted for simple beach themed decorations and they were perfect for the setting. We thought the ceremony captured everything we wanted to celebrate about our love and future. We loved the photobooth and it was so much fun to take photos with all the guests and have them take copies home. Our DJ was awesome and the catering was delicious. In summary, it was the most perfect day and exceeded even our highest expectations.
