A "Harry Potter"-Inspired Wedding at Metropolitan Waterworks Museum in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts

Jordan Jancosek and Jacob Wishart met on the swim team in college. “I thought Jacob was a big weirdo and just wanted to make out with the ‘pretty new girl on the team’—his words, not mine—at a swim team party,” Jordan says. But that wasn’t the whole story. “He sat down with me one day at dinner in the dining hall when he noticed I was sitting alone," she says. "We ended up chatting for three hours, realizing how well we got along.” After nearly 10 years of dating, the "Harry Potter"-loving couple tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony at Larz Anderson Park in Brookline, Massachusetts, followed by an industrial-chic reception at Metropolitan Waterworks Museum in nearby Chestnut Hill. Warm rose golds, subtle blush peaches and pinks and simple greenery decorated the space. “I wanted to focus on industrial and vintage,” Jordan says of the reception’s decor, which included whimsical glass-encased book-and-floral centerpieces—a touch that appealed to Jordan, an avid reader and an archivist. "Harry Potter" also played a big role in the day: Guests got a signature champagne drink called the "Felix Felicis," which in "Harry Potter" is the potion that brings the drinker luck. “There were also a lot of mirrors with writing scattered around our venue, which definitely gave it a Hogwarts Castle vibe—we even got to keep one that said 'Mischief Managed,'" Jordan says. The bride's advice for other couples is to enjoy the process. “Don't take the planning so seriously. This should be a fun time you get to experience with your partner. Also, enjoy being engaged and getting free champagne and desserts at bars and restaurants.” —Carolyn Meers
