Rustic Indoor Wedding Inspiration

industrial brick inspiration

We love it when a super rad venue can act as inspiration for a gorgeous editorial. In this case, The Brooklyn Gastown in Vancouver, Canada – a rustic, exposed brick venue – set the wheels in motion for a styled indoor celebration that was filled with masculine décor, lush greenery, and lots of candlelight. The team behind the setting (The Apartment PhotographySweetheart EventsDushan Flowers + Bespoke Decor Rentals) set out to celebrate the love story of two ultra stylish grooms (dressed in head-to-toe TopMan!) on their big day.

Stephanie of Sweetheart Events says, We chose an intimate area for the exchanging of rings and followed the couple capturing them candidly as they walked the cobble stone streets of Gastown. We then did more styled photos inside the gentleman’s lounge designed by our décor team giving a perfect balance between vintage and pretty but in a masculine setting. Our couple also enjoyed old fashioned cocktails at the bar with marquee letters in the background and ended the night with the first dance underneath a showering of heart shaped confetti!

We love the guys’ slightly more casual style with one dressed in a print and great accessories like that skinny tie, bow tie and pocket square!

We’re in love with this candlelit sweetheart table! The beautiful rustic, reclaimed wood table draped with a luscious greenery garland was a perfect match for gold accented place settings, a chandelier of greenery and gold wine bottles with taper candles.

Stephanie closes with a bit of spot-on advice, The advice and inspiration that I hope couples take away from this is to remember your love story, why you are getting married and to personalize the day into one that is true to you. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and be different.

Such a fun one! Big thanks to the talented team below for sharing!!

San Diego Restaurant Wedding: Cheri + James

San Diego wedding

Lately we’ve seen so many gorgeous weddings in amazing indoor AND outdoor locations. We’re finding it hard to decide which we prefer! Cheri + James got the best of both worlds with a stunning seaside ceremony (at a lighthouse at sunset, you guys!) followed by an urban restaurant reception at Banker’s Hill Bar & Restaurant in San Diego, California. They enlisted the talent of Beau & Arrow Events to design their dream setting – a totally genius move as you’re about to see. Cheri shares, We made most of the decisions about our wedding day together and tried to keep things true to our taste as a couple. That’s the way to do it, friends!

Big thanks to John Newsome for sharing these beautiful photos with us today and congrats to C + J on a hosting wedding that was just right for them!
