Bride’s Comments: “I think my husband and I were born in the wrong era. We definitely should have been this age in the 80’s with the rock bands, great costumes with leather/studs and big hair. Alex had friends and friends parents who introduced him to artists like Alice Cooper and Judas Priest. While my mom listened to all the classic rock artists. For both of us music is a huge part of our lives and it really mattered what we played at our wedding. Some of our favorites that we listen to daily: Guns and Roses, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Steel Heart, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, Motorhead, Megadeth, Van Halen, Def Leppard, Judas Priest and the list goes on!
“When we decide to do something together we go all in. We are that couple that if you invite us to dress up somewhere, we show up in full blown costumes. Whether it is somewhere fancy, themed birthday or Hallowe’en we tend to take our outfits to the next level. So when we decided to have a rock and roll wedding we knew we had to make it a spectacle. We definitely didn’t want the typical wedding, not that it’s a bad thing we just wanted to make ours stand out from the rest. Our goal was to have our friends and family have an experience that they have never had at a wedding before. It was close to Halloween so we encourage our guests to dress up in 80s or rock apparel.
“Some details included backstage passes for everyone who came. Each pass coordinated with an album cover that was their seated table number. At the table we had the actual vinyls for everyone to sign with silver sharpies instead of a guest book. (which we ended up framing and hung them in our basement) We wanted it to look like rock and roll royalty so we went with black table cloths, skull decanters and giant candelabras full of red roses. Everyone received a guitar pick with our names and wedding date on them and we gave skeleton awards out to the best dressed. We purchased a flying V guitar for our wedding party to sign which we proudly display. Lastly, every line of our vows were puns based off song lyrics, song titles, albums or bands which we personalized and made a killer impression on people.”
