Atalie Day Photography at American Visionary Art Museum Wedding

Atalie Day Photography is a Baltimore wedding photographer. I loved photographing Mollie and James’ wedding at the American Visionary Art Museum. Held in Baltimore in November 2022. The couple opted for a first-look. They trusted me to scope out a location for them to meet. I chose the lattice-like metal sculpture and vines that embellish the outside of the Sculpture Barn. The late afternoon lighting was a photographer’s dream.

We then had to make our way up to Federal Hill for some couples photos. They also wanted a few photos with their beloved pup, Maggie, who was waiting patiently for their arrival. The view is utterly iconic!

Wedding Ceremony

Their ceremony was the perfect blend of her Jewish traditions and his Christian beliefs. Held in the Sculpture Garden, the ceremony location featured a beautifully decorated chuppah by Willow Oak Flower & Herb Farm. A chuppah, a Jewish traditon, is a canopy under which the couple stand representing the home they will soon create. Mollie’s parents lovingly made the chuppah for the ceremony.

Afterwards, wedding guests and the couple had a cocktail hour in AVAM’s cafe. They greeted their loved ones and happily noshed on appetizers. Mollie and James wanted to spend as much time with their guests as possible. I kindly asked them to walk down the staircase.

The reception, in the Sculpture Barn, was warm, charming, and beautifully decorated with string lights and filled with love. Mollie and James heard speeches from Mollie’s sisters and James’ best man, as well as their parents.

Speakers of the House performed a plethora of wonderful songs and guests of all ages danced the night away. Mollie and James’ wedding cake, by Codetta Bake Shop, was simple and elegantly decorated with flowers and figs. The entire event (corrdinated by Simply Created Events) was exactly what this couple wanted “warm, understated-beauty, simple.”

My history with the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM for short) goes back several years. My father who is a long-time volunteer with the Kinetic Sculpture Race. As an avid kayaker, he lends his skill as a safety volunteer for the water portion of the sculpture race.

When Mollie and James contacted me about photographing their wedding at the museum, I was very excited! I attended an art school in D.C. that was also a well-known art gallery (Corcoran Gallery of Art). So, Atalie Day Photography being selected as a Baltimore wedding photographer amidst art was a dream of mine, I will cherish the experience.
