Remember the days when almost all weddings took place in ballrooms? If you wanted to have an elegant and glamorous wedding, it meant booking a hall with not much character, and you were limited to how you could style the space. It Takes Two Events and VUE Photography are challenging that idea and sharing how a rustic, industrial space with so much preserved history can be transformed into an elegant setting for an intimate affair, or large celebration.

We did not try to mask the rustic features of the space, but rather showcase them by framing them in soft lighting and draping. Additionally we added luxury linens both to the ceremony and reception areas,which included sheer gold sequin chair covers at the ceremony and alternating gold lace and gold sequin tablecloths for the reception tables.

You can never go wrong with hanging floral garlands, right? Such a great dramatic feel hanging above the dining table too.

Gorgeous shoot!!! Where did you get those little scrolls on the champagne classes??? I am loving them!!

Erin Palermo on Jan 23, 2014

Hi Alena! We designed and printed those in-house, then curled each one by hand.

Is/are the gold/metalics on the wedding cake edible? Is it fondant? I love this wedding design! Thanks in advance

Wow! What a stunning wedding! I think if I did my wedding again, now, it would a lot like this! So beautiful, not insane with detail but just simply elegant!

Lauren on Jun 13, 2014

The scroll escort cards are lovely -- are they hand calligraphed on paper? It almost looks metallic in the photos! Lovely design!!

Paula on Dec 19, 2014

Just came across the beautiful scrolls on the champagne glasses while browsing Pinterest. Have a daughter getting married in May and would live to have these for her guests. Is there a place where they can be ordered?

Caitlin on Dec 28, 2014

Im getting married this summer (2015) and would love to order the champagne scrolls. Is that possible to do so? If not, would you be willing to sell the template and information of where to buy the exact paper?

Sarah on Oct 14, 2015

I am looking to order the glasses and the scroll of our wedding next November, 2016. Do you do them, or have any suggestions on paper weight, printing, cutting, etc.? I see a previous post, you rolled them by hand? They are gorgeous!

Gail Kapovich on Oct 26, 2015

The escort cards are gorgeous. Can you tell me where we can purchase them. My daughter is getting married in March 2016.

Bridgette on Jan 28, 2016

I see many people have asked about the scroll Place cards, yet i dont see a response. Are you messaging back? I would really love to Know how or where to get them, just so different And elegant. Please respond, ty

Hello Bridgette, We don;t have a source for where to purchase these place cards, but you can hire a calligrapher or invitation designer to create them for you. It would also be an easy DIY by purchasing a good paper stock and rolling the ends yourself. Hope that helps! xo Jillian, 100 Layer Cake
