A New York confectionery wedding with smoke bombs, viking horns, & a haunted paintball field

Tara and Mike decided to do something more industrial-themed for their New York wedding. They brewed large batches of mead (Tara makes the most incredible mead) for their wedding and anniversaries to come.

Janessa and Tyler rocked a vintage 1970s-inspired theme including Janessa’s custom dress with epic sleeves (made from a vintage pattern), and Tyler’s casual look with a vintage tie. Everything from the locally brewed beer to the French champagne toast had a chic and laid-back vibe. They’re animal lovers so they even had a visit from some alpacas!
