Veronica and Daniel were married on July 8th at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham, NC. While “wedding venue” may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the museum, let me assure you that this is one of the coolest places in the triangle to have your wedding. I have seen couples get so creative with the indoor and outdoor spaces at this location. The SUPER cool thing about this particular ceremony is that Veronica and Daniel wanted to say their “I dos” in the tree houses!

Thunder in the distance threatened their plans, followed by torrential downpours. Guests gathered inside the museum as we waited for a decision on the ceremony location. These brave souls made the decision to go for it in the rain, and the couple and wedding party with bright yellow umbrellas to make it happen!

The Ceremony!

As you can imagine, there were some pretty creative elements in the ceremony for a tree house wedding.

Guests gathered on the ground among the trees, looking up at the couple.

The wedding party made their entrance via spiral staircase.

How does the ring bearer get the ring up there, you ask? Why, bucket and pulley system, of course!

Unity Ritual

Veronica and Daniel chose to include a handfasting in their ceremony.

You can see above the colors they chose were red, white, and teal, to coordinate with their wedding colors.

It is difficult to see from this angle, but here I am saying, “They have tied the knot!”

At last, the kiss and the pronouncement! These two are Mr. & Mrs.!

And perhaps my favorite part, the wedding party recessed through the bride green tube slide!

Lastly, I am so appreciative of these two taking the time to leave a review on Wedding Wire!

“Fantastic! Best wedding officiant either of us has ever used ever. We’d give her a 6 if it were possible. Katherine is such a trooper. We had the pleasure of being her first couple to get married in a tree house during a thunder storm. She gave us the option to abbreviate the ceremony but stuck it out when we chose to do the whole thing (she was only partially covered by an umbrella even). Choosing vows was a fun and simple process. Katherine made the business part of it easy as well. We give her our highest recommendation and encourage others to reach out to her.”
