Marriage in a Moment

We’ve all heard about it- running away and eloping in Vegas. If you and your loved one are looking to tie the knot while on vacation, or just simply have been dreading the courthouse idea and want to liven things up, your wedding venue hunt is now over. Forget the west coast, and gear your attention towards the Gulf; a trip to Galveston for Valentine’s Day may have you returning home with a marriage license and lifetime partnership.

When booking an intimate wedding for 20 of your closest friends and family, you don’t always have to resort to the court. Starting on February 14 and 15 at The Bryan Museum, couples will now have the chance to experience a traditional wedding setting, without the traditional venue costs and expenses. This Valentines Day, let Marriage in a Moment fit your nuptial celebration into an hour, providing the wedding cake, photography by Ryan Jones, officiant Jane Park, flowers by Island Flower including a custom bouquet & boutonnière, and even tunes by DJ Chosen. In the weeks leading up, you’ll be able to work closely with the crew, communicating details and preferences leading up to the big day. The Bryan Museum wants you and your loved one to soak up the most memorable day in your relationship. The package also includes bride and groom time in their respective Bridal Suite and Groom’s Lounge prior to the ceremony.

Typical wedding photographers, florists, and DJ prices combined can often cause dents in wedding budgets, especially after venue costs. This steal of a deal, with everything included, is only $3,200. Slots are filling quickly for V-Day weekend, please contact Peter Ochoa at as soon as possible to lock in your date!
