A classically simple celebration, Alisha is to credit for the ceremony and reception décor using furniture from her house to decorate the open space of Downtown 202.
Alisha says she sought out inspiration from Pinterest, thus creating an old-school classy-themed wedding. Without a wedding planner, Alisha organized every detail but advises to “pick your battles” when deciding on what to create yourself and what to buy or leave to someone else. Alisha and Lincoln’s bouquets and boutonnieres were ordered online from Etsy. Handcrafted from foam, the flowers came from an artist in Bulgaria.
LaSalle Hotel catered a brisket dinner while Sweet Daze in Hearne made the allergen-free cake and dessert bar. The reception also featured a build-your-own cocktail kabab bar. Bartending was provided by Luke’s Bartending. Alisha’s hair and makeup were by Leanna Hale and Grace Terry.
Some advice for future brides: “Take in every moment, and don’t let it fly by. It all happens so quickly,” says Alisha. “Just go with the flow, and roll with the punches, and make sure you’re enjoying it.”
