Part two of Lindsey and Trevor’s Metropolitan Building wedding is here! You can see the first part of their wedding day here. This part is filled with a ton of great moments from their wedding ceremony and reception, and I also sprinkled in a few of their very unique DIY wedding reception details as well!

Metropolitan Building Wedding Ceremony

They laughed, teared up a little, and gazed at each other in the most perfect way throughout their wedding ceremony at the Metropolitan. I love watching a couple fully engaged in the ceremony around them.

These images perfectly show off some of the unique and personal touches Lindsey and Trevor put into their wedding. Lindsey’s mother helped her alter her wedding gown by sewing in the layers of soft, blue tulle waves on the train.

Their ceremony backdrop is a handmade masterpiece. Together they came up with the theme of weaving for their wedding, that a marriage is a thing woven of pieces from each of them. They sourced a variety of different clothes and ropes and asked their family members to help weave them together during the ceremony to signify the joining of their lives.

Lindsey and Trevor asked each of their fathers to sign their marriage license, another personal touch that was lovely to see.

We snuck outside for a couple outdoor portraits. Doesn’t Lindsey’s dress twirl so perfectly?

Metropolitan Building Wedding Reception

If you haven’t yet noticed, I’m completely enamored of the lighting Trevor and Lindsey chose for their wedding. They asked Urban Chandy to help out and arranged for multiple light installations!

Lindsey and Trevor made all the table centerpieces themselves. They were quite modest about it but I think they did such a great job. I loved them and it fit in with the Metropolitan look so well! It was kind of fun hearing Lindsey exclaim over some of these images during their image premiere. She never got to see the reception tables set up until the area was full of people, so she loved seeing the details like the mismatched china in my photos.

One of my favorite images from the whole day, and I managed to save it till now! They set up such a beautiful ambience. I love this image of a stolen moment during their wedding toasts.

A few more little moments during some emotional toasts and a tribute to Trevor’s mother.

A few night portraits on the floor below the reception- they told me how much they loved the random collection of chairs so we used the area for their couple portraits at the Metropolitan.

They chose ice cream sandwiches in lieu of a wedding cake. Thank goodness! Um, have I mentioned how much I love ice cream sandwiches?

To Lindsey and Trevor: thank you so much for trusting me to narrate your wedding day! I know you had other offers and it means the world to Joe and I that you chose Turn Loose the Art. I had a blast. And I loved everything you did with your wedding!
