I can talk about nontraditional wedding venues six ways to Sunday. When you're a nontraditional nearlywed on a budget, you learn to get creative when it comes to finding the right wedding venue. So when Erika of Light Sky Photography shot this minimalist yet classy wedding at my favorite craft cocktail bar, The Wilder, I completely astral projected. You see, The Wilder is to me what The Lab at Ada's is to Ariel.

Chris and Cassie's wedding is not only the perfect example that you can have a classy wedding at a bar, but the benefit of leaning into a nontraditional wedding venue. The couple kept things classy and simple with minimum decor so the beauty of the nontraditional wedding venue could do the heavy lifting. The black tie attire complemented the bar's 1920's Art Deco design, plus the beautiful balloon arch and Cassie's dried flower bouquet packed a simple yet soft statement. And OMG, Chris' sharp white blazer and Cassie's silky wedding dress?! Ok, I'm gonna shut up now so we can just look at these gorgeous photos.

Let's take a peek inside this nontraditional wedding venue.

We can't decide which we love more: this couple's outfits or the nontraditional wedding venue!
