A 1920’s Theme Wedding Held at the Historic Fillmore Theater

It was clear that this wedding was going to be spectacular from the moment we saw the spats on the groomsmen shoes to the style of dress worn by the arriving guests. This 1920’s theme wedding was held at The Fillmore in Detroit, a perfect setting, as the theatre was built in 1925. We were located at the top of the Grand Staircase overlooking the ceremony. We played several nostalgic songs as the guests were being seated including At Last, Isn’t It Romantic and Cheek to Cheek. Gabby and Leo chose Over the Rainbow for their mother’s seating, Unchained Melody for the bridesmaids and Bittersweet Symphony by the Verve for Gabby’s processional. Leo looked the part in a white tuxedo while Gabby looked gorgeous in a sheath gown. Kate McClellan of Purple Clover Events was quite helpful and we send her our thanks. Following the ceremony, we moved to the mezzanine and played more contemporary music for the cocktail hour. Our arrangement of “Game of Thrones”, theme song from the HBO Series got a great response as did our Beatles songs. The Fillmore has the ability to remove the floor seating for dancing and dinner. Prior to the band, 50 Amp Fuse, taking over a circus troupe including a juggler and aerial silk performer performed for the guests. It’s interesting to note that from 1913 to 1923, the Fillmore Theater was called the Grand Circus Theater. All of this presented photographers, Janna Bissett of LilacPOP Photography and Melissa Squires of A Girl in Love with many opportunities for great pictures. We were delighted to be a part of this fantastic celebration. Best wishes to Gabby and Leo!
