Rock Festival Themed Wedding ~ Marci + Eric ~ The Orpheum Theater

Wedding Team:

Marci & Eric's love of music inspired this non traditional event at the Orpheum Theater in Downtown Flagstaff. 

I had a poster made and Greg from the Orpheum put thier names on the marquee.

Marci's two girls were her bridesmaids & Eric's son's his groomsmen.    What a fun family they

Eric is a muscian and wrote a song for Marci which he sung to her during the reception.  All of the guests received a cd of Eric's music as a gift.

Melissa Dunstan had to take a photo in a record store - Rock-It-Man CD's.

Thornagers Catering did a fantastic job with the food.  Marci & Eric wanted different stations for their guests to enjoy.  They had a salad station, meat lovers station, stir fry station, a gourmet grilled cheese truck & a gelato station.   I made these fun signs with the menu choices on them and had them at each station.  Tents were constructed in the parking lot of the Orpheum where the food was served.  A yellow umbrella and table inside served as the gelato station.

Marci  & Eric had beer glasses made as favors.  We had a kids area separate from the adults.  The younger ones got these cute boxes filled with chips, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches & candy.  Kraft paper lined the bar area and crayons, markers and stickers were in metal pails so the kids could draw and create.   I also re-covered the existing stools with fun plaid fabrics in pinks, blues & oranges.  The Teenagers sat at the opposite bar area, I wrapped pink and blue ribbon around their napkins for a little extra punch of color.

The photobooth from Shutterbox was a fun addition and all of the photos were put into an album as a keep sake for the bride and groom.

 Because the wedding was held at a music venue,  I made concert tickets that served as the guest's escort cards.  They had to go to the will call booth at the theater to find out what table they were sitting at!

The ceremony took place on stage and all of the guests sat in the audience and watched as the happy couple exchanged their vows.  The ceremony concluded with a group hug representing the joining of their two families!   As I mentioned above, Eric serenaded his bride with a song he wrote for her, so touching!

This was an interesting space as it is a music venue with theater seating and a stage.  I really wanted to soften the space so we constructed a beautiful fabric draped chuppa for the couple to stand under during the ceremony.  I also created an area for the bridal party and family to sit under during the reception.  We strung globe lights across the top and I made these really fun chandeliers out of flowers and chicken wire (the shades were given to me from a friend who was replacing their lighting in their house and needed a visual so he created these life size models)

Marci & I found this fun fabric and Anne Thomas from Anne's Alterations made table runners for me.

All of the flowers and centerpieces were designed by Glamorous Occasions.

In keeping with the music theme, I made the table markers rows and put them in CD cases.  Sugar Mamas made all of the beautiful desserts!

It was an amazing evening and I wish Eric & Marcy a lifetime full of happiness! Thanks for letting me be a part of your day!
