Real Wedding: LeiLani & Matt

by :: ,

An Alchemy Exclusive! LeiLani and Matt had a vibrant superhero and retro-inspired wedding – and we loved their unique take on a bold color palette. The combination of blue, yellow and red was everywhere – in the bouquet, centerpieces and even in the vintage cars throughout the garage venue. There was so much love and energy between the couple and their newly-expanded family, but also with the guests and everyone involved.

LeiLani and Matt are two of the sweetest and most charismatic people that I’ve met. The retro superhero wedding was really fun to put together – they really wanted to showcase the fun venue and their unique style. The ceremony was held tableside, between two car lifts with vintage cars atop, a bold craftsman as the altar with vibrant blooms by Flourish flanking a mass of pillar and votive candles. Tables were draped in black and white checks, with bold centerpieces of colorful flowers a few extra vintage touches. Cityscape and retro backdrops hid all the not-so-fun garage gear, but really added a fun design element. Cupcakes showcased the superhero theme, with Superman Rings atop each. In fact, the groom wore Superman cuff links and the Bride had a Wonder Woman brooch in her bouquet. Congrats LeiLani & Matt! May you have many years of wedded bliss!
