We have reached our next stop on the tour and it's a stunner! After visiting the Hilton Downtown Richmond, our guests moved to the Hofheimer Building nestled in the trendy and bustling Scott's Addition of Richmond, Virginia.
For this mock wedding day, the ceremony, sweetheart's table, sweet and savory stations as well as the reception were located in the Loft which boasts "a spacious yet intimate 3,600 sq ft. room with high ceilings, hardwood floors and rustic exposed brick walls. The large windows and industrial skylight allow natural light while the steel trusses and open floor plan create a blank canvas." The Hofheimer also utilizes a roof top space for weddings and events with the rooftop patio "offering sweeping views of the neighborhood as well as fireworks and stunning sunsets."
Moving right along to the highlights we meet Alex Tenser of Alex C Tenser Photography who expertly captured the chic industrial vibe moving throughout this design spearheaded by wedding planner Jennings Whiteway of Belles and Whistles. Always with a bit of edge, Alex "composes a natural and stylish record of your day, finding those AUTHENTIC moments that are waiting to be captured and can only be seen when you take a step back and let life unfold. These are the moments that validate the TRUTH - the truth in a smile, the truth in a glance, the truth in love."
"Jennings draws her creative energy from the vast culture, charm and beauty in and around Richmond. Her attention to detail and positive attitude are at the heart of each event." Crasher guests were able to visualize this creative energy firsthand through each of the amazing talents of the wedding vendor team.
Upon entering the loft space, a stunning mid century modern sweetheart's table by Paisley & Jade was adorned with gorgeous florals by The Proper Petal, place settings by Page Stationery and tableware by Classic Party Rentals of Virginia. Guests were further greeted by a Sharper Palate with their sweet signature cocktail and a bourbon splash.
Guests then grabbed a seat at the mock ceremony setting featuring a center skylight, circular seating pattern and a focal centerpiece collaboration between Advanced Visual Production and The Proper Petal. And how perfect were the mahogany chairs to complete the look! The gentlemen of Bunn DJ Company kicked off introductions for our vendors while Annalise Bridal Boutique sent one of their gorgeous looks down the runway. ELLE Style Studio completed the look with a whimsical flowing style and rhinestoned head chain.
Team Hofheimer also incorporated a mock wedding couple's history into their designs and decor with calligraphy and artwork by Page Stationery. Surrounding the ceremony site were "Sweet" and "Savory" stations with fun custom cut text signs also by Page Stationary. The "Sweets" station incorporated a brand new addition to the Paisley & Jade inventory, a modern yet rustic wooden wall display featuring donuts by Sugar Shack. The "Savory" station equipped with ladder shelving by Paisley & Jade featured an enticing spread of amuse-bouche by Sharper Palate from pickled tuna with Spanish slaw to skewered beef.
One of the goals of the Wedding Crasher's Tour is to provide unique examples of how design elements can be used to complete a particular wedding vision. We couldn't be more proud of each of the designs we've seen so far and have enjoyed seeing how each design team incorporated similar trends in very unique ways as well as highlighting individual decor and styles.
Congratulations Team Hofheimer on such a unique transformation, exciting design and lighting ideas for our couples searching for that perfect blend of industrial and modern chic!
