A handmade Texas wedding: Michelle + Haden
Can art studios be 2012’s venue trend? Quickly scroll down until you see their reception venue and you’ll see what we mean. Michelle + Haden wanted their wedding to be a not too fussy or formal, but still elegant and pretty, with a slight Texas twang celebration. Their palette of pale pink, slate gray, light blue and poppy red worked harmoniously with the extravagantly unique draped fabric installation work of Molly Gochman.
Michelle’s sister, the graphic designer behind their wedding invitations, established a font and logo with their initials that they used throughout the wedding – from thank you notes to the the design they painted directly on their dance floor.
Their nieces played Canon in D (Pachelbel’s Canon) as a violin duet for the processional.
This is such a fun idea – they had a New Orleans Brass Band lead their guests into the reception and had everyone dancing immediately–before the toasts & dinner.
Keeping with the soft color palette, they placed chrysanthemums, dahlias, Delphinia, and snow berries in various glass bottles. And below is the unique fabric installation by artist Molly Gochman.
Above are their initials that Michelle’s sister designed and painted on their dance floor that Haden built! We’re curious to know what they ended up doing with that huge dance floor after the wedding…
Congratulations Michelle + Haden!
