Erin and Ben are a fun couple so they wanted to make sure that their wedding was SUPER fun. They broke the traditional mold of weddings and made their wedding something no one would forget. I know I won’t! Erin and Ben had such a cool wedding. First of all, it took place at the COOLEST venue ever, the Rialto Theater. I’ve been dreaming of playing at this venue and Erin and Ben made my dream come true. I was definitely not disappointed! The theater is equally beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside. Gorgeous blue doors welcome you into the open theater. The theater transports you in time. The white wash brick walls was the perfect backdrop for the wedding ceremony. I got lost in the beautiful tall ceilings that looked untouched for years. I don’t know much about the history of this beautiful building but I definitely appreciated being in it. Anyway, back to the wedding! When picking out the ceremony music it was clear that the “typical” wedding songs should be avoided. The bride and groom wanted something unique and memorable just like the wedding. The groom made his “grand entrance” to the theme from “Game of Thrones”! It was awesome and pretty badass. (Can I say that….? Oh well. Sorry Grandma!) The bridal party walked down the aisle to “A Sky Full of Stars” by Coldplay. One of my favorite parts of the wedding was the flower girl and ring bearer…. They were the cutest! Oh did I mention that they were not your typical flower girl and ring bearer, they were the grandparents! What a wonderful way to incorporate them into the ceremony. I LOVED this! The bride made her grand entrance to one of my favorite songs, “Flightless Bird, American Mouth”. This song has SUCH a beautiful and some what haunting melody line. It was absolutely perfect! The ceremony was sweet and the vows were cute and funny. I love when the couple has a great sense of humor. Oh my, how can I almost forget to mention how STUNNING Erin looked? She had the most beautiful smile on her face the entire ceremony and was giddy with happiness. Oh how I love witnessing these moments! The bride and groom made their exit to “Rather Be” by Clean Bandit. I love how the harp sounded when the room was silent… the acoustics in this place. I could just stay and play there all day. After the ceremony the guests were invited to cocktail hour in the art museum and the outside alley. So awesome. I wish I could’ve stayed all night! I had such a blast at this wedding! I wish Erin and Ben a lifetime of laughs and love. Thank you for having me be a part of your memorable day.
Shout out to a few of my favorite vendors... Alison from Confetti Events helped make the day flawless! Rad Red Creative was awesome as usual. Can't wait to see the video! My new friends with Bay Kings Band sounded amazing! I love live bands at weddings they help create such a fun atmosphere!
