As if Peter and Braulio’s New York City wedding wasn’t enough to make us ooh-and-ahh, their 1920s-inspired affair included a monogrammed Art Deco cake design that was utterly jaw-dropping. The same monogram was also seen throughout the day on their decor including their stationery and favors. This one truly offers a pretty slice of inspiration!
