A Simple Wedding at the Denver Art Museum in Denver, Colorado

Marla, 23, a paralegal, and Corey, 27, a luthier (he makes and repairs string instruments), met as children. Their mothers are best friends and fathers work for the same company. Inspired by black-and-white Ansel Adams photos, the couple chose a simple gray and white color palette for their simple but modern museum wedding.

Marla’s wedding band was engraved with aspen leaves, and Corey’s wedding band has a wood inlay on the inside.
Marla wore a white strapless dress, which was tailored for her by a friend. Marla’s mother added a crystal aspen leaf belt.
The bride carried roses, baby’s breath and stephanotis.
Marla told her bridesmaids to pick whatever dress they felt prettiest in as long as it was gray.
Corey wore a gray three-pieces suit with a gray-and-white plaid tie. His groomsmen wore gray suits in whichever shade of gray they preferred.
One of Corey’s longtime friends played a violin that Corey had made while Marla walked down the aisle.
“We chose the museum because throughout our relationship most of our favorite dates have been at museums,” Marla says. “We rented a portion of the museum that included a glass-enclosed bridge where we held the ceremony.”
The reception tables were decorated with square glass vases holding white hydrangeas, roses and lily of the valley.
“We've always loved the photographs of Ansel Adams, and the way he captured where we grew up,” Marla says. “We used framed photographs by Adams to mark each table.”
