What do you get when you combine industrial lights, gorgeous greenery, a Merlot-infused color palette, and one incredible Star Wars themed groom’s cake? Robbie and Nicolette’s elegant December wedding, of course—a truly memorable “I do” with a design that was equal parts unique and chic.

First things first: that dress! Nicolette stunned in a modern fitted gown that featured an illusion panel at the center of the bodice. Befitting the season, bridesmaids wore floor-length cabernet gowns and carried blooms in a similar hue. And let’s not forget about Nicolette’s scene-stealing mini maid…precious!
David Kimmel Design brought the couple’s vision to life by perfectly marrying contemporary and classic elements. The large metal chandeliers at Brake & Clutch Warehouse were draped in greenery, and floral table centerpieces alternated with sky-high groupings of industrial light fixtures. Eye-catching lighting also accented the ceremony scene! A wall of hanging Edison bulbs created a spectacular backdrop and beautifully framed the ceremony arch, which was comprised of greenery mixed with flowers in shades of burgundy and cream. It was easy for each guest to catch a view of Nicolette and Robbie’s touching vows thanks to the semi-circular arrangement of ceremony seating.
The vendor list for this wedding featured one of our favorite recent discoveries: the Buon Giorno Coffee Trike! As one of only 30 self-sustainable coffee models in the world, this pedal-powered reception activation is perfect for latte lovers looking to provide a unique experience for their guests.

Last but certainly not least, we couldn’t resist sharing this sweet love note from our beautiful bride. For the record, Nicolette, we’d be down to plan the entire day all over again, too!
“I’m just sitting over here reliving our day through the video and pictures and might be the only bride to ever wish she were still planning her wedding! I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat and wanted to thank [your team] so much for everything! Our wedding has been and will remain a topic of conversation throughout our families!” -Nicolette Rogers Shafto
