Rachael and Mike were brought together over their work in the arts and love of theatre, so a dramatic wedding was always in the cards. A unique venue was a must that was striking yet intimate.
Rachael is culturally Jewish and Mike agnostic so they decided on a secular ceremony with Jewish elements. One of which was a gorgeous huppah that Mike built especially for their ceremony. Mike’s mother also played the piano while his sister sang them a blessing. A down to earth couple they served gourmet pizza and decorated the 19th-century factory turned arts center with a double seated swing, vintage furniture found on estate auction sites all curated by the couple. A VW photobus, bottle dancers and a fire dancer entertained guests. Rachael and Mike wanted this to be a day both they and their guests would never forget, and it won’t be!
The guys wanted elements of fall, darker moodier colors that still felt warm. They kept their main colors deep purple, white, gold, grey and lots of greenery to soften and make the industrial space romantic. The bouquets had a lot of greenery with some blush roses, a few deeper purple colored florals and dusty miller. Similar florals also adorned the huppah. For the table we went with greenery runners accented with just pops of color. The couple found lots of vintage pieces on the ‘Let Go app’ or estate auctions. They bought or borrowed bar carts, vintage suitcases, cake stands, decanters, macrame, vintage rugs, chairs and a love seat.
The bride was wearing a gorgeous embellished A-line wedding dress with a deep neckline and a train, white shoes and an embellished headpiece for a glam touch. The groom was rocking a grey suit and a black tie.
