It was a really prolific installation with four chapels, bride, groom, wedding day cake, mirror, upper body, pillow and several, stationed & hanging columns (symbolic of guests). It was this enormity, due to which, not plenty of customers could be captivated for the finish structure, and Nevelson had to split it down into sixteen stand-by itself sculptures. The theme of this assemblage facilities on the transitions that accompany nuptial ties. It carries the essence of expectancy, brilliant prospects, and the promises of a marital lifetime, by its depiction in white, a colour historically involved with Christian matrimonial ceremony.
