Durham, NC - February 2014


From the tropics of Magic Wings Butterfly House to the life-sized residents of the Dinosaur Trail, the Museum of Life and Science offers a one-of-a-kind wedding experience for local couples year-round. On Sunday, February 23, 2014 guests of the second annual Love & Science Wedding Expo will have the opportunity to sample the experience firsthand. Expo guests will enjoy a sneak peek into the potential sights, sounds and excitement of their big day with tastings and decor samples from the Triangle's premier catering and rental companies. All access Museum tours highlighting ceremony and reception options will also be provided. A favorite of many celebrating couples, the Museum's rentals team will also provide tours of Magic Wings Butterfly House and help guests visualize the space's infinite possibilities. 

"From intimate ceremonies to a twilight cocktail hour, the experience of celebrating your special moment amidst hundreds of tropical butterflies is truly once-in-a-lifetime. There's a level of romance that just can't be matched," remarked Kelly Taylor, Museum Rentals Manager. "Couples often don't realize the endless possibilities a museum wedding offers. With over 60,000 sq. ft. of hands-on exhibits the only limiting factor is their imagination!"
