Music Lovers’ Wedding in New Jersey

Having been to over 35 concerts together, it was only fitting that Ellen and Dan’s wedding was filled with musical inspiration that spanned many genres. The groom even wrote and had a song recorded for his bride, and there was a surprise appearance from Elvis! Their goal was to have a party with a little wedding mixed in.

Ellen and Dan created a day full of personal touches. They are grilled cheese sandwiches as they had done on their first date, hired a caricature artist inspired by a drawing they had done at a Baltimore Orioles game, and marked each table with a miniature version of a poster from concerts they had attended together. The wedding invitation itself was designed to look like a record sleeve.

Colourful Industrial Wedding with Pop Punk Influence & Bespoke Beer

Meeting on Tinder, Tiffany and Joe’s first date was at a supermarket, followed by a home-cooked dinner made by Joe! They chose to hold their special day at Globe Dye Works in Philadelphia, the perfect fusion of industrial and creative.

Tiffany and Joe incorporated their love of pop punk and emo music into their wedding, with Tiffany walking down the aisle to an acoustic version of a When You Know, by pop punk band, Neck Deep, as well as hiring their city’s emo night DJ for their ceremony. They also had coasters made with lyrics to a favourite song, which they spread around the venue and used to accompany the pin favours. In another nod to pop punk, the couple brewed their own signature beers and named them after special pop punk songs.

Tiffany explained, “We brewed two beers, When you Know, a blueberry Pilsner named after the song I walked down the aisle to, and Love in Real Time, a peach Belgian Blonde named after the same song by The Maine and made with peaches we’d picked ourselves.”

Chilled Warehouse Wedding with Retro Arcade Machines

Meeting at a house party at the age of 16, Jordan and Chelsea celebrated their tenth anniversary just a few months before they got married. They wanted to be themselves as much as possible at their wedding, so filled their venue with everything they loved, from the bright pink flowers to the neon signs and vintage vases, and just went with a totally relaxed day.

“It’s so easy to get sucked in by all the perfect pictures on Insta and Pinterest so we tried very hard to be inspired but make sure we were doing what we wanted to, not what we thought we should. It really was all about us and our personalities, from the way we dressed, to the food and the arcade machines. We just kind of did what we liked and hoped others would enjoy it too!”

Eclectic, Rustic & Industrial Themed Wedding

Dan and Kimmy’s Brisbane wedding was a healthy mix of both traditional and contemporary elements. They had an eclectic, rustic, industrial theme and the venues, The Brisbane Powerhouse and The Black Brisbane, were chosen because of the lighting and ambience they provided.

“Our inspiration was doing it our way and in a way that felt right”, Kimmy told us. “We just wanted it to be a celebration of our love…because I had always vowed I was never getting married again!”

They didn’t have a bridal party, Kimmy didn’t wear white and they chose to have their ceremony in the venue’s usual ‘backup wet weather option’, because it felt right for them. “Our families walked down the aisle in front of me, like a bridal party usually would, I got my eternity ring during the ceremony (because I had waited an eternity to find a love like Dan’s)”, she said. “The ceremony was the perfect celebration of our love. We included the kids and the ring blessing was particularly special, as our rings were carried in a handkerchief that belonged to Lena, who was a part of my family and a treasured soul, that was then sitting in a small ornamental dish from Dan’s late Grandpa Jimmy and then wrapped in a piece of Dan’s late Grandma’s wedding dress.”

Colourful & Industrial Los Angeles Wedding

This LA couple met at Disney while both working on Moana; Alyssa was an artist and Dave was brought into help manage her department. Once the movie was released, they were an item, and they married in April 2019 at HNYPT LA, a studio space location in downtown Los Angeles.

They went for a colourful meets industrial vibe for the day. The bride explains, “We put both of our personalities into our wedding. We wanted everyone to feel welcome, as if they were coming into our personal space. We brought Filipino traditions from my side and some Jewish traditions from Dave’s. Dessert was a soft-serve ice cream truck which was a huge hit!”

A long time friend of Dave’s, who is an actor, led their ceremony. Alyssa walked down the aisle to the theme from My Neighbor Totoro, accompanied by both of her parents. “We prepared our own vows”, she continued, “I went first and asked for our gathered friends and family to raise their hand if Dave had ever helped them. The amount of hands was overwhelming that Dave couldn’t even look. Dave finished his vows with a quote from one of my favourite movies, The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

Contemporary, Industrial, Indie Wedding

Emily and Craig have been to a LOT of weddings over the last few years – 33 in five years, to be precise – so knew they wanted to do something completely different to what they’d experienced before. As music is a massive part of both of their lives so it was super important to them that it play a big role in their wedding day, too. They wanted the wedding to feel like a music festival with a contemporary twist – less wellies and haybales, more Berlin industrial with street art, greenery and warehouse vibes.. Oh and a massive party to boot! 

With a £23,000 budget, they started their planning by sorting their venue. They fell in love with Constellations in Liverpool, which set the tone for the day. They had a hefty price to pay to secure it exclusively on a Saturday in peak wedding season, but Emily and Craig felt it was worth every penny. “If you find somewhere you love, with a vibe you love, just go for it,” advises Emily. They saved money by creating all their own signage and decor, and serving their wedding cake as dessert. “Other than that we tried to everything carefully but out motto was if you really want it, get it – you only do this once.”
