Alyssa and David put on a wedding full of beautiful details, colors, and unique elements. The celebration was vibrant, fun, and playful, and the couple’s personalities were infused in their wedding while remaining inclusive of Jewish wedding traditions. This is the story of their Addison Grove wedding.
A Little Bit About This Addison Grove Wedding And Reception
Alyssa and David had several plans for their Addison Grove wedding and reception. One was to fill them with live music, loved ones and festivity, and the other was to honor some important Jewish traditions. These were traditions like signing the ketubah, breaking the glass, and the hora dance, but it was the colorful design elements, the beautiful location, and the live music that sent this wedding over the top.
Alyssa and David love concerts, so, for them, live music was always going to be an element at their Addison Grove wedding. They had an elegant string quartet at their ceremony and a lively band at the reception to dance the night away.
The reception started as an outdoor dinner and then became a lively dance party under the stars. The whole event was full of music, singing, and dancing. The grand finale was a wildly colorful hoop dance by the bride herself that lit the night up! This was truly a celebration guests remember for a lifetime.
A Quick Note About The Wedding Planner
It’s always a joy to work with Emily from Bird Dog Wedding. We’ve collaborated on so many weddings over the years, and it was great sharing this experience with her as well. When she calls, we know it’s going to be a quirky, modern, design-forward, colorful celebration with a ton of heart and attention to detail. Bird Dog Wedding always takes the time to create a truly unique vision for each couple they serve, which was the case here as well. We were happy to add our own thoughts and designs to that vision, which we’ll get into now!
Designs that Celebrate Love, Light, and Laughter
Alyssa and David are Houston-based professionals who share plenty of mutual interests, which they wanted to be reflected in their theme, wedding invitations, and signage. They wanted to immortalize their love for music, most notably the band Phish, and include fun, light, and natural elements in their stationery and signage.
Emily gave me a list of words to work with: color blocking, illustrative, retro, bold patterns, nature elements, song lyrics, and playful wording. That’s a big part of the fun of working on designs and signage for clients. The fact that you’re given a challenge, trusted with someone’s vision for their special day, and you get to put your experience and creativity to use helping them bring it to life.
I also chatted with Alyssa one-on-one about her ideas for her Addison Grove wedding. I learned of her and David’s love for Phish, plus the fact they wanted to infuse an element of music, light, and laughter into all their stationery and signage.
We worked hard on their ideas, developing boho patterns and colorful details for them and their guests to enjoy. Of course, we wanted to tell a story with their invitations and signage. We wanted to channel a ‘60s/’70s retro music poster feel with a strong indie spirit, just like Alyssa and David. Then, we tied all of this into their Addison Grove wedding with a unique color palette of mustards, teals, pinks, and coral, which worked well with the venue’s natural, fairytale-like grounds, and the stunning floral design by The Farmer & I.
We loved helping bring Alyssa and David’s Addison Grove wedding to life, as we do with all of our clients’ weddings. If you’re looking for some help designing the stationery for your own wedding, let us know. We’d love to help you create something amazing!
