When Eda and Bryant were planning their wedding, they thought it would be so cool to have it at a planetarium. They ended up discovering Chabot Space and Science Center, and their space-themed wedding was born! They wanted just a touch of nerdiness, and Chabot was perfect. As Eda put it, “The Center was just the right amount of nerdy, just like us.”
While weddings revolve around the happy couple, many couples want their guests to have an amazing time. Some couples go from considerate (such as not making their guests wait for over an hour after the ceremony) to a full-on memorable party (like renting out an airport with surprise musical appearances). Eda and Bryant pretty much landed (very successfully!) at the far end of that spectrum.
They wanted their guests to have a truly unique and different experience, so they ensured that the venue would be entertaining. At Chabot Space and Science Center, they knew that their guests would have an experience beyond the typical wedding. Not only is it a beautiful museum, but the guests were also able to view the exhibits and use the telescopes to view the night sky. The observatory was so amazing. It was such a unique experience for everyone.
They Rented a Mansion for Getting Ready!
Yes, you read that right: Eda and Bryant found a mansion on Airbnb and rented it for the bridal party. How amazing is this?! Most couples get a hotel and make sure they get nice suites for getting ready, but Eda got a whole freaking mansion. It made for THE BEST photos ever. Alicia loved posing everyone at the many photo-perfect spots throughout the place.
