What happens when two chemists get married? They have an amazing intimate wedding at the local Apothecary Museum, naturally!
Amanda and Jimmy just moved to the DC area this past year, and they wanted to celebrate their wedding here in the area while also tying in their love of chemistry and vintage glassware. And what a better place for all of those things than Old Town’s Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum! Seriously, that place is amazing. I think they give tours, too, so apart from this wedding post, if you’re in the area you should deffffinitely visit.
The wedding was filled with little noises and gestures from their young son, which is always the cutest. Kids at weddings! They are too adorable! Afterwards, we got to explore the museum for some science filled wedding photos, and check out all the way-too-cool bits of the museum. If you look really hard in these photos, you’ll actually find “Dragon’s Blood”, which was legitimately a part of this Apothecary Museum. (I know, right? Is this real life?!)
These ladies were peering in the windows (I imagine this happens a lot when the inside of your building is so gorgeous)…
Checking out all the botanicals and equipment…and then we saw this meat juice.
The whole place has been impeccably preserved and contains so much original equipment. It’s like stepping into a strange and wonderful (local) time capsule.
Congratulations Amanda & Jimmy! We had tons of fun celebrating with you and your family!
