Never going to be over this super science savvy wedding!

Science nods included subtly themed letterpress menus, periodic-table-reminiscent place cards, and a deconstructed decal of the double helix on the bar. A color scheme of navy, black and gold combined with greenery to complete the winter-wedding look.
