Wedding Reception in the Art Museum...Exquisite!

As I promised on Sunday, here are my favorite images from a unique wedding reception over the weekend at the wonderful MCNAY ART INSTITUTE in San Antonio, Texas.
My oldest son's childhood friend was married, so this was a time to re-connect with some old friends not seen in a while and to enjoy the talents of artists from Chagall to Van Gogh.
This is predominately a photography post.  So I hope you enjoy the fashions, the beauty, and the decor.  You will see there is one green dress I loved and followed!

Actually, the mother-of-the-bride is wearing the green.

A few modeled their finest.  If you missed what I wore, click HERE!

Simply stunning event!
My husband made a friend!

Happy Wednesday!
