Originally, Janel and Charlie wanted to hold their reception in a more open environment. But with his family visiting from Seattle, Washington, it would be too much travel for their guests. So they opted for a loose lighting design. Building on the floor-to-ceiling windows and fabric along the ceiling at Liberty House Restaurant in Jersey City, New Jersey, they highlighted the space with delicate string lighting across the modern chandelier. Every detail made the room seem much larger and natural, as if they were partying below the stars.
