It was The Great American Music Hall that played host to Holly & Michael’s wedding. It was the couple’s love of a good party, Rock n Roll and quirky fashion that inspired their day. “The team behind Union Square’s uber chic Shotwell Boutique, Holly Kricher and Michael Weaver are style savants who’ve worked their way into the hearts and minds of San Francisco’s fashionistas in a very short period of time,” explained photographer Christina about the couple, “So, it makes sense that their wedding thoroughly reflected their fashion-forward sensibility.”
“Having the reception at The Great American Music Hall not only complemented the bride and groom’s vintage aesthetic, it created the feeling of being at a glitzy nightclub rather than a formal wedding. Instead of assigned seating, the couple opted for a cabaret-style set up for both the ceremony and reception. When those tables filled up, guests could get a bird’s eye view of the action from the balcony upstairs.”
This fashion forward bride wore a dress by Morgane le Fay and Christian Louboutin shoes. She opted not for a tradition bridal jewellery, instead favouring a custom made gorgeous statement necklace, bracelet and earring set by Erickson Beamon. Both Holly and her Maid of Honour carried bouquets that were illuminated with a blue light. The result was very dramatic as they walked down the slightly dimmed aisle.
The couple thought about all of their details carefully and as well as DIYing a lot, had set designer Courtney Atinsky on hand to help them transform their vision into reality. Instead of flower petals, the “flower girls” threw small cloth butterflies down the aisle which they purchased from Micheal’s. They also wore black leotards with tutus. The favours included vintage-style costume jewellery, such as brooches, rings, and earrings, doubled as table decorations.
