‘You & Me:’ A Dave Matthews Band Inspired Wedding

Featured on The Knotty Bride  and Hi-Fi Weddings, this styled shoot draws inpiration from a couple’s shared love of music. The design was based on the Dave Matthews Band album cover, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King with the popular love song ‘You & Me.’

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’ sweetheart 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.

The large ‘You & Me’ painting was donated and sold at the Wish Upon a Wedding Southern California gala silent auction to raise money for couples in need.
