These ultra-unique inspirations brought this raw venue with industrial flare to life—from the glass cylinders filled with colorful water keeping votive candles afloat, to the flower arrangement that popped with color from its canvas (quite literally!) Elizabeth Galloway and Krissie Simek of White Lace Events & Design walked guests through a one-of-a-kind experience at the Brick by 828 Events in San Diego, California, creating a fun environment filled with "movement and depth to stimulate all of the senses," according to the planners. ABM Wedding Photography captured the high ceiling covered with white linens that elegantly criss-crossed over one other, positioned near strung light bulbs that illuminated the space (thanks, Shine Lighting!) Luxe white couches and chairs from Lauren Sharon Vintage Rentals created a comfortable atmosphere for ultimate relaxation, accompanied by glass tables decorated with ivory flower arrangements done by Ashley Elizabeth Floral Design & Styling. And if someone walked close enough to the wall decorated with what looked like empty frames, a helping hand popped out with a freshly-made lobster roll by Continental Catering—ready to be enjoyed! Hard to believe? See it for yourself below, among these other modern details that will leave you inspired!
