The adorable backyard BBQ wedding of Matthew and Honor was sent to me from the amazing talent of Modern 8 Films! This homespun San Diego love fest had a subtle Grand Ole Opry feel. From the reception music to the tables being named after such artists as Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Elvis, etc. Even the details have the relaxed and fun feel of a backyard bash!
This time let’s start with the video!
The bride, Honor, wanted music that wasn’t stuck in any particular era…more like “timeless” songs that everyone loves.
First Dance: “Into the Mystic” by Van Morrison
Grand Entrance (combo of 3 songs):
“Sharpe Dressed Man” by ZZ Top (for the ushers)
“I Believe In A Thing Called Love” by The Darkness (for wedding party)
“White Wedding” by Billy Idol (for bride & groom)
The dance music was a mixture of 50’s 60’s and a lot of 80’s.
