An Alternative and Industrial Warehouse Wedding at Jam Handy in Detroit, Michigan
When planning their wedding, Lara Steele and Jacob Rosen wanted a "goth meets industrial meets disco vibe with a splash of Burning Man thrown in," they say. Their unique venue, Jam Handy in Detroit, provided the perfect backdrop for their non-traditional celebration with a moody color palette. The ceremony took place in an alternative loft space with a golden chuppah, string lights and a hanging installation with pink flowers. "The circular installation added a level of grandeur to a very blank, industrial-looking space that really took the romance to the next level," Lara says. In the sea of dark colors, she stood out in her white A-line wedding dress (although she initially struggled deciding whether to choose a non-traditional dress instead). "I wore my favorite leather jacket for our photo shoot, and I matched it with dark accessories and makeup," she adds. Jacob sported a maroon three-piece suit, while the bridesmaids and bridesman donned black dresses and jackets. The couple used disco balls both as escort card alternatives and as hanging decor. The metallic accessories contrasted beautifully against the deep black draping. For dinner, guests sat at round tables with white linens and black chairs. Lara and Jacob also cut a single-tiered wedding cake with deep purple flowers on it.
