So many couples have an emotional connection to music and the bands/songs they share in common with their love story. This styled shoot is inspired by the Dave Matthews Band album 'Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King.'
On the album is the song 'You & Me' – a romantic song that many couples have chosen as the first dance at their wedding. Each decor element was carefully selected drawing from the illustrative design of the album cover.
It has a muted and dreamy feel of the energy of mardi gras, music and symbolism that infused the design of the shoot. An example of this is the unique and meaningful common thread infused into each of the shoot's vignettes with custom, textured and layered paintings on canvas that provided a meaningful touch to the decor.
From the ceremony 'You & Me' painting, 'The Kings' sweet heart table, 'Sweets' dessert cart, to the painting of the dress on the escort card table – each of the paintings become a forever memory of the day as treasured keepsakes as decor in the couple's home as well as gifts for the family and wedding party.
