Going to the Chapel, and We're Gonna Get Married

Today's Muse: the Kresge Chapel

We thought a lot about the location for the wedding. It was hard to pick a location that meant something to both of us. We had the opportunity to do the wedding at the Kresge Chapel at MIT designed by the architect Eero Saarinen, because Brad went to MIT for his PhD. I am an architect, and Brad is a scientist who loves this was the perfect place for us! The image to the left is an interior shot. I love the cascade of light down the Bertoia sculpture! Here is the wikipedia article about it:

Hi Gabrielle,

I, too, read your article on and just wanted to send well wishes. I'm planning a wedding in the MIT Chapel just a few weeks after yours. 4th of July weekend on the Charles River. Michael and I met as undergrads at MIT and we love Boston to death! I started out as an architecture major, so I'm also very thrilled about marrying in Saarinen's gem.
I think calla lilies will look fantastic. Best of luck!
