This Couple Got Married in an Old Theater, and Their Wedding Looked Just Like a Movie

Before Matt and Chelsea even began planning their wedding, they knew to make sure their big day took into account all their friends and family flying in from around the country. They wanted everyone to feel included and kept that in mind, from the family-style dinner to the photo booth.

When the two saw photos of the Rialto Theater in Tampa, FL, they instantly fell in love. "The theater was so unique and beautiful, and a blank slate to make it our own — I knew we had to get married there," Chelsea said.

Since the couple's home has a modern, industrial feel, they wanted to continue the theme to their wedding. Ghost chairs added a sleek touch throughout their ceremony and reception, as did strung Edison bulbs and wooden farm tables. Black velvet table linens and jewel-tone flowers also provided a rich, warm vibe.

In addition to a small lounge area with big forest green couches, the groom requested a custom draft beer bar to really make it their own. Their entire day turned out just perfectly.
