Vintage Metropolitan Building wedding: Lisa + Jim

Categories   Real Weddings

Beautifully classic, elegant, romantic… even the light is perfect. And the venue is insane. Lisa and Jim, picking the Metropolitan Building was a stroke of genius! And from what they’ve told us, it was a no brainer. They were instantly drawn to the little quirks and amazing pieces of antique furniture they could use throughout their wedding day. Plus it reminded them of Paris, a city they love and have spent time in together.












The flowers are gorgeous, the details simple but perfect. Lisa and Jim really thought every little piece of their day through and it shows, don’t you think? Oh and absolutely lovely photography by Ben of Weddings by Two. Shot on actual film, we might add.

Hello and great to see Lisa and Jim on 100 Layer Cake! I had the pleasure of designing their flowers and much of their decor, and it is a pleasure to revisit such a great wedding. We tried to strike a balance of formal and lush elements, without a hint of stuffiness.
