Lauren Albright and Chad Hardman wanted a comfortable venue to celebrate their wedding day, but also a place with a bit of history.
The Vault in Hollister, chosen for its romantic, 1930s Art Deco architecture, was the place.
The bride wore a sweeping gown with a long veil and crystal-studded stilettos that carried her across a path of rose petals to her groom. Hardman, ready to receive his new bride, sported a charcoal gray suit with a plum argyle tie and pocket square. The bridesmaids' floor-length dresses picked up on the purple theme, as did the accessories of the groomsmen, who wore purple accents (and superhero socks).
The lovebirds had planned a classic wedding but didn't take it all too seriously. Ivory and violet roses with fresh green accents were everywhere, and the two said their vows beneath a simple, wooden arch draped in chiffon.
At dinner, tables sparkled with gold accents and candelabra bathed the reception in a warm glow for dancing and cupcakes.
