Lauren & Jed in Brooklyn, NY

The Bride Lauren Riese, 29, a graduate student at Fordham University
The Groom Jed Garfunkel, 35, an attorney
The Date June 9

Lauren and Jed decided to take guests on a journey for their wedding day. Both the color scheme and the décor changed from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and reception, morphing from blushes and ivories to bold purples and hot pinks. The ceremony design was modern, while the reception was ornate and old-world.
