a dramatic 1920s Jazz lounge inspired wedding filled with glamorous details


Janelle-Renee and Joe's wedding was a moody love affair with music that took place at the University of Louisville's Alumni Club in Louisville, KY. Both the bride and groom were formally trained jazz musicians, and it was important to the couple that their wedding decorations uniquely reflect who they are. The venue was full of rich burgundy and gold tones, and featured vaulted ceiling with rows of crystal chandeliers. We worked to enhance the beauty of the venue, and brought in Art Deco elements that spoke of the Jazz Age. Wedding guests were asked to dress the part, and many did. The bride and groom were married against a custom burgundy velvet backdrop that resembled a stage. We brought in lots of mood and shimmer with our gold mercury glass votives and vases. Guests danced the night away to live entertainment that belted out songs in 1920's inspired garb. This soulful fete was one of the most fun weddings we've ever had the privilege of designing and decorating.
