An Old Hollywood classic theater same-sex wedding

Becca Dilley Photography sent us this gorgeous wedding in Madison, Wisconsin, and we were super stoked about the awesome style and INSANELY COOL cake: a huge pedestal with flames and mini-cakes hanging down!

The couple, Cailin and Joanne, also rocked an Old Hollywood vibe with a retro theater venue, the Orpheum Theater. It's a perfect fit with our era-inspired theme week too!

Love this capitol backdrop.

The Orpheum began as the Music Hall in 1852 and served as the original home of the New England Conservatory.

An epic theater vantage point.

The top was actually lighted from within!

A friend of the couple, Leigh Henderson, made the cake.

  10. O…m…g. I think this is one of the most amazing weddings I've ever seen. That cake?! That venue!? Those brides?! GORGEOUS. I also think the shot of the bridal party walking away from the Capitol building is a really gripping, inspired shot. Amazing all around!

  11. Oooh, never thought of dining in the main theater! We're also planning to have our wedding in a theater, but I figured we'd just put the tables in the lobby or another room. I actually love the tables there! gorgeous!
