Molly schemed an elaborate proposal wherein she rented out an art gallery throwing a fake event with all her friends and family present showcasing a video an "artist" made. To her partner Melissa's surprise, the video was actually the proposal. D'aww.

For the wedding itself, they wanted an industrial venue that would allow them to bring in their own catering. Since Molly is an unbelievable chef, she wanted to design the menu and have her staff caterer the event. Then it was on to making it vintage-inspired, unique, and elegant. We're talking a vintage typewriter guest book, a fabulously olde timey cigar bar and photo booth, and epic food photos that will have you salivating for the real thing. Sadly, we must make do with the photos. Oh, and just wait until you see the choreographed reception dance with custom shirts!

  1. I'm STARVING looking at those menus! Love everything about this wedding. That last photo in the park (?) is pretty spectacular and I might copy it for my own shindig.

  2. What an ace idea having the guest book be a calendar where everyone signs their name on their birthday! If I hadn't already had my wedding, I would totally steal this idea.
