Cummer Museum Weddings

Reasons to love it


1. Beautiful Architecture

The clean lines of the art galleries, the epic main entrance, the atrium’s high ceilings and loads of natural light make this venue the perfect setting for a unique and beautiful wedding. It’s sophisticated elegance makes it one of the best wedding venues in Jacksonville.

2. Unique Location

There are many beautiful art museums in the world but to have one built right on the water like this is so beautiful and inspiring. There are so many inspiring backdrops for wedding photographs, and it’s so peaceful looking out at the river that I know it would help nervous brides and grooms relax and be present.

3. Those Gardens

It’s no secret that a big reason for this venue’s popularity is their stunning, artfully designed gardens. The historic oak trees, winding paths, and stylistically distinct sections immediately elevate any wedding. The refined, European influenced landscape design is a rare find in Florida.

4. Inspiring Art

Choosing to marry at an art museum makes an elegant statement about who you are as a couple, and makes your wedding an even more special event for your guests. Walking through the galleries, wandering garden paths with hidden sculptures, makes for an inspiring night full of romance.

Hi! I’m Emily, a wedding photographer who believes that real beauty is best.

I love creating images for my couples that are not only beautiful and artistic, but that you can look at and say ‘Wow! That is so us!’. I shoot film for it’s true to life colors and the magical light it brings to my work. I don’t do cookie cutter posing, but photograph each wedding, with it’s unique mix of people, locations and weather, as it’s best self. It’s not about copying trends or sticking to a shot list but showing all the beauty and feelings of YOUR one of a kind wedding day.
