Cat & Mike are two OK Cupid love birds with a love of traveling and and learning. Since the beginning they made it clear to me that they were really excited about the experience the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA. would provide their guests. They made their wedding day as unique as possible with a mixed faith ceremony under the stars with a matching twinkly Chuppah in the Planetarium (or as Cat lovingly refers to it, The Chapel of Science), then cocktail hour in an exhibit that encourages climbing through the synapses of the Brain, and finally the colorful grand atrium over which Ben Franklin himself presides. Judging by the wide-eyed awestruck faces of their young guests as sunset turned to starry sky in a matter of seconds, high heels piled in the corner of the floor next to the climbing exhibit, and the packed dance floor, it’s safe to say their planning paid off!
