The bridesmaids bouquets featured an arrangement of white and blush colored flowers accented with a flower with a deep red tone.
Large storage trunk stacked on top of one another added a charming vintage touch to the couple's indoor ceremony.
“We decided early on that The Metropolitan Building was the right venue for us,” Diana says. “Its two floors are very different, so even though the guests didn’t leave the building, we loved that the ceremony and cocktail hour had a different feel from the reception area.” The day began on the second floor and later moved to the fourth floor for dinner and dancing.
The bridesmaids wore navy silk chiffon dresses from J. Crew, while the groomsmen wore light gray suits to match the soft pastel palette of the venue.
The centerpieces were an arrangement of fresh light tones of peach and white accented with dramatic dark hues of purple plum and burgundy.
The DIY escort cards were displayed on a vintage brown table next to a lush floral arrangement and candle votives.
Diana's oversized bouquet featured dahlias, garden roses, orchids, and hydrangeas. The bouquet was bound by fabric that was made from her dress.
The invitations featured a lovely gray woodgrain backdrop.
“The food highlight of the evening was the dessert table,” Diana recalls. “No one would believe me when I told them it was all vegan!”
Diana chose a pale blush Monique Lhuillier trumpet gown that fit in with the classic vintage theme of their wedding.
Although the bridesmaids all wore the same navy color dress, Diana let them pick the cut that best suit each individual's style.
The four tier cake was a mix of birthday cake (a combination of rainbow cake crumble, sprinkles, and vanilla frosting) and banana cake.
