Swanky 1920’s-Inspired Wedding at The Prado

By, January 29, 2015

The Roaring Twenties was an era bursting with Art Deco style, extravagant couture, and lush ornamentation. Rosalyn and Adam felt like these characteristics would be just perfect for their wedding – and they were so right!  Who wouldn’t want to attend a special celebration full of 1920s glitz and glamour?  To make their vision a reality, they called on the help of Francine Ribeau Events and Isari Flower Studio. Throughout the wedding, guests were transported back to this magical era, like a page out of The Great Gatsby. Check out the photos we captured below, and witness the transformation :)

The Grand Reveal

Rosalyn and Adam chose to do their first look prior to the ceremony.  Doesn’t she look stunning with her 1920’s finger wave hairstyle and intricate, beaded gown? He thought so too! ;) We loved photographing this moment!

The Ceremony

The young and adoring couple exchanged their vows at The Immaculata, an ornate church situated on the USD Campus.

The Party

The reception took place at The Prado, which boasts high ceilings, ornate lighting fixtures, and a grandiose stage. As soon as guests stepped foot in the ballroom, they were greeted by the sights and sounds of the 1920’s. The chairs and chargers were ornamented with gold, as was the art-deco cake. Fresh blooms were in abundance, in classical arrangements. There was even a soundtrack to match, because Rosalyn and Adam had hired The Heroes to entertain in big-band style.

Guests from young to old had a blast, and even jumped on stage to sing and dance the night away!
