“I wanted flowers that were
different, but beautiful in
their own regard—a reflection
of the eclectic wedding we
were having and the offbeat
people we are,” Lisa says.
Her nontraditional bouquet
consisted of craspedia,
thistle, Stars of Bethlehem,
roses and crystal brooches.

invitation suite to reveal a
navy-and-gold booklet invite.

“Instead of having one massive cake, I decided to have a whole collection
of cakes,” Lisa says. Seven cakes were displayed on a vintage cart—each one
with a different flavor and design. Cute fact: The cameo motif on the smallest
cake was made from an actual image of Lisa and Marc!

A storm moved
their afternoon ceremony indoors at the last minute. Guests sat beneath
gold chandeliers in Architectural Artifacts’ atrium.

Architectural Artifacts is full of vintage treasures couples can borrow
to decorate their wedding. “I loved the idea of a truly unique, vintage-inspired wedding with real
antiques,” Lisa says.
