Caitlin and Luke are a couple who truly know what they want. Their intelligence and attention to detail made everything about their day truly reflect who they are as people and as a couple. We themed the wedding after the Prohibition era. They brought in elements from both of their hometowns and from the things they loved. Caitlin and Luke lived in a building that has so much history and beautiful architecture, the church where they got married had the same beautiful vignettes. Their reception site was a renovated factory that had a perfect mix of modern architecture and historical pieces.When it came to colors Caitlin described her palette as a summer palette that had been out in the sun and faded over time. This muted palette was perfect for their wedding in September. We used flowers there grown locally and arranged them in tin cans and bottles. The tables were named after literary couples who had positive stories. Caitlin and Luke tied in heritage wherever possible; they brought photos of their parents on their wedding day and gave cookbooks with family recipes as favors.We brought back cocktails from another era with the French 75 and served local beer on the bar. The band, The Jake Leg Stompers, kept everyone entertained with Prohibition era music as well some recognizable new music. The evening ended with a second line and hugs and cheers from friends and family.
