Last fall, we spent a lot of time at Lacuna Artist Lofts coordinating not one, but two, amazing weddings! Laura + Antonio put their own unique spin on the eclectic space with dramatic draping, lighted cocktail tables and, of course, amazing food (after all, Laura’s family owns a restaurant and Antonio is a chef, so a good spread was key!)
Classic and beautiful, it wasn’t hard for these two to look amazing for their big day. Just a few final touches and they were ready to head to the alter!
The ceremony at The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii was breathtaking. The church is so grand and made Laura’s walk toward Antonio pretty dang dramatic. (Loving Antonio’s “no sock” look, so stylish!) And of course the collection of bridesmaid dresses looked fantastic together, coordinated but each lady was able to express a little bit of their own individual style!
After some quick pictures with friend and photographer extraordinaire Julia Franzosa they were off to the party! We loved their gold flatware. strings of cafe lights and sprigs of green everywhere, it was the perfect combination of glamorous elegance in a very eclectic venue!
