Our jobs at the Hawthorne Hotel often put us in the "catbird" seat in terms of being able to get a look at so many different events, different ideas and unique ideas.  That happened with a recent wedding, where the participants chose a literary or book theme for their wedding, and executed it with some special touches.

Here are some photos for you to enjoy:

We loved the use of an old card catalog box to hold the place cards.  The cards were even "typed out" in the style of old library reference cards.

 The "bud vases" for the cocktail tables were carved out of old books, made to look like vases.

 The "table numbers" were the names of favorite books, and the centerpieces encompassed old books laced together with raffia and ivy ties which served to unite floral elements with the books.

 The wedding cake was a stunner, with the book,  A Love Story, topping the pile.

 Pages of books were used to decorate the cake table, as you can see below.

The couple and their wedding party engaged in a lightsaber fight during their photo shoot. How fun!


I hope you enjoy this look at yet another different kind of wedding in the Grand Ballroom of the historic Hawthorne Hotel.
