Lauren + Patrick: Fun and Elegance at the Art Museum


An extravagant blush pink and white wedding at the fabulous Chrysler Museum of Art. It’s regal, it’s elegant…and it even includes a really cool old car!

Lauren Whitbeck and Patrick Garvey were married on August 26, 2011 in Norfolk, Virginia, United States.


The Bride’s dress is purely exquisite and her modesty shrug is the perfect complement.



I just love this photo with the old car (and please excuse my ignorance for any no idea what kind of car it is), especially in black and white. It actually looks like the photo was pulled out of her mother’s scrapbook, doesn’t it? Stunning!


The reception venue has very classic and sophisticated look to it, and the light pink and peach accents make it seem very homey and comforting — a great combination for a museum wedding.


A big thank you again to Keith Cephus Photography for submitting yet another fabulous collection of wedding photos!

**UPDATE: I’ve just been informed by Bob Hunter from Royal Coach Limousine that the “old car” is in fact a “1963 Rolls-Royce Phantom-V formal limousine with a coach built body from Mulliner-Park Ward. It is one of only 516 Phantom-Vs produced and one of only 126 ‘MPW’ coach built Phantom-Vs”.

He also said that this wedding was moved up a day because of Hurricane Irene. “Quite a few local professionals came together to make this special day happen despite a rather wet and windy forecast.” Thanks, Bob!

Happy weddings!

  1. We did not have much notice a hurricane was coming but it sure did. We had great vendors that changed the date by one day. We all worked together and made a beautiful wedding. A great time was had by all. The bride and her parents were wonderful to work for.
