They took part of the Short & Sweet Pop Up event that they were hosting. Alena told us all about it, “As toy designers, fun is always an inspiration for us. With this in mind, we decided on the Bob Baker Marionette Theatre as our venue and had our ceremony officiated by a star puppet which was then broadcast over Zoom for our friends and family who couldn’t be there. We also planned it in only one month! “

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.”
