Meet your dream rustic venue with a modern twist in Valparaiso, Indiana.


The Market is a venue that invites every bride to create her own vision within its walls. Jordan Skaltsas, manager of this modern Valparaiso wedding venue, says, “The appeal to our venue is the capability to create any style of wedding, shower and other event in our halls. The programs allow the bride to envision her ideas to paper and the beautiful attributes of the halls help bring it all together.” This ability to create any type of wedding within the venue is what led Michelle Nikitaras of Unveiled Weddings & Events to curate a modern, chic style shoot.

Michelle says, “The Market has a large space that fits a modern theme with a neutral wall colors, beautiful wood flooring and large windows to create a beautiful, modern wedding.” This clean palette allowed the team to dream big as it would for any bride who is planning her wedding at The Market. They started by incorporating black and gold elements within the tablescapes. Michelle notes, “We used gold linens with black napkins and included black, geometric shaped and rounded vases for floral arrangements. Various votives were filled with black rock, water and floating black candles.” These bold decor items were paired with modern, acrylic menu cards from XOXO invites.


In keeping with the theme, the florals also highlighted a bold style. The Unveiled Weddings team used calla lilies, Playa Blanca roses, Anthurium and orchids. Michelle says, “Each of these flowers comes in a bright white color to fit our theme.”

This minimalist mood also shined through in the bridal look with a dress from Catherine’s Bridal. Michelle adds, “We chose a modern and classic gown with minimal details. Our vision was to find a simple, chic and modern dress with little to no detailing.”

The final detail that added to the overall style was an impressive geometric cake from Designer Desserts, a nod to the modern theme and reflection of the geometric vases.
