Alicia & Marshall
Sept. 24, 2011 at the Spokesman Review building in Spokane
When makeup artist Alicia Smith couldn’t find the perfect industrial-chic venue for her nuptials to longtime love, chef Marshall Lichtenwaldt, she created her own, transforming a vacant floor of the Spokesman Review building in Spokane into an airy and sophisticated atelier. The pair, who first met in 2005 while Marshall was on a tour stop in Spokane with his rock band, married in front of the floor’s behemoth windows and underneath strings of antique lights and paper chandeliers, with Alicia donning an heirloom necklace and gown accented by lace bought in Italy. For the reception, the couple decorated tables with cigar boxes and family teacups filled with air plants, and also set up a dessert bar with treats honoring family members’ favorites, including sugar cookies, cheesecake and a Dodgers-themed groom’s cake (he’s a fan). As guests got silly in the photo booth, the equally hilarious cover band, Big Hair Revolution, took to the stage, entertaining all with their rockin’ long hair and 1970s tunes. After driving to a lakeside honeymoon retreat, the newlyweds settled back at home in Spokane.
