Jesse & Katrina :: Married (part 2)

Kraft Studio & Firehouse was the incredible light bathed venue of Jesse & Katrina’s wedding. Comfortably accommodating 60ish guests, this place provided ample space for the team building activities that segued into a foodie’s dream reception.

After the ceremony, friends & family were entertained with a Cranium-style puzzle hunt complete with play-doh. Mango, the couple’s dog, was central to many haikus that accompanied the mixed-media art projects guests created. The artistically undiscovered guests transformed inside jokes from family dinners, college dorms & working lunches into play-doh sculptures like these:

The steward of this Victorian firehouse is Craig Kraft, a prolific sculptor who uses neon to fuse typography into three dimensional installation pieces. Originally one of the District’s first black-operated firehouses, Craig renovated it twenty years ago to serve as his living and studio space. Below is a photo of one his sculptures and a detail shot from behind.
