Event Recap: 61st Annual Museum Ball | Birmingham Museum of Art

The 61st Annual Museum Ball took place Saturday, May 6 at the Birmingham Museum of Art. Co-chairs Beth and Scott Adams, Tracey and Rich Bielen, and Tricia and Mark Drew welcomed more than 400 guests for the fundraising event which returned a record-breaking $600,000.

Inspired by landscape paintings from the Museum’s collection, the evening’s theme was Southern Splendor, and the Museum’s galleries were transformed into lush, elegant dining spaces embellished by floral arrangements of magnolias, gardenias, and hydrangea, and decorated with silver accents and delicate porcelain table settings. Alex and Jill Garmon of A.G. Events designed and produced the Ball’s decor.

Chef James Boyce and his staff from Galley and Garden treated guests to a four-course menu of Southern cuisine that included a gulf jumbo lump crab cocktail, stuffed quail, a main dish of braised angus beef short rib with classic sides of collards, grits, deviled eggs, field pea succotash, and peach bread pudding. All were masterfully paired with wines that included Steelhead Pinot Noir, Felino Chardonnay, and Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Noir.

After dinner, guests were invited to the outdoor terrace for dancing with entertainment by the Surround Sound Band.

Real Wedding: Jessica + Will | The White Room | St. Augustine, FL

Arguably one of the most picturesque cities in the country, St. Augustine, FL exudes historic charm.  Downtown features cobblestone streets, quaint shoppes and intimate cafes. It’s a romance-lover’s dream.

Sweet couple, Jessica and Will, wed downtown at Villa Blanca (hello, gorgeous soaring ceilings!) before letting loose at a raging reception at The White Room.  The two chose The Royals to kickoff a night of non-stop dancing.

We love that the band got a special shout-out on the Alex Michele Photography blog. Alex Michele wrote,  “I can’t say enough about [Jessica and Will’s] incredible vendors especially their live band choice called “The Royals.” These guys were seriously AMAZING! I forgot I was working a wedding, and rather felt like I was at an intimate concert! They had EVERY one on their feet dancing and were so super sweet, too!”

Thanks for the love, Alex Michele, and for sharing these jaw-dropping images from Jessica and Will’s big day!
