Fresh, clean + oh-so cool. We dig these slightly industrial chairs for the ceremony space, and they would look rad in your home, too!

The florist, Roses & Mint, wanted to show off a massive hanging installation to give brides an alternative to doing large floral arrangements at every table. With the same budget she can create a statement piece at the head table and do something simple at the guest tables.
