Garage B hosted several weddings in 2022 that quickly have made “hall of fame status” in our books. These couples brought so much creativity and life to our blank-slate wedding venue, making each wedding incredibly unique and custommade for their tastes and interests.
When planning an event in a space like Garage B, there are so many directions to take the look and feel of a wedding. Some couples can walk in and picture what they’ll do with the space right away, others need some visual inspiration to help make decisions.
Over the next few weeks, we are going to share some of the most unique weddings and how they made the most of our blank-slate wedding venue!
First up – Olivia + Dylan!
Let’s just put this right out there: Olivia and Dylan are incredibly cool. They brought such a unique, rock n’ roll vibe to Garage B, we simply had to share all the thoughtful details and considerations of their big event.
Coming from the world of party production, where music and dancing are a huge deal, the couple immediately established that live music was going to be a focal point of their event. The layout of the room was organized to accommodate the biggest possible dance floor. In this space, that meant one very long table, creating a dramatic and intimate party atmosphere. With the big long table, the floral design followed – including a custom-made suspended structure draped with long-stem roses.
The wedding took place on a beautiful October day. The ceremony took place at nearby Herter Park on the Charles River; afterwards the wedding attendees were shuttled over to get the party started at Garage B. The party was designed to invoke music festival vibes. Two live bands (Playing Dead and Seba Molnar Band) performed throughout the reception – to maximize dance floor space, the bands set up outside in the lower courtyard with the garage doors wide open. Later in the evening, the Glitter Boys kept the party going.
Personal touches by Olivia and Dylan were scattered throughout – table numbers were made from beloved album covers, charcuterie-lined dining tables, a lounge area featuring vintage furniture, and other personal details like custom-made neon signs, coozies, and canvas bags all featuring their beloved pup made the day truly memorable.
