What did Melissa + Matt had to say?
"The year we got engaged, Matt and I had attended 13 weddings. The thought of planning our own wedding was a bit daunting to say the least. From the get go, we knew we had to find vendors who GOT US -- who shared a similar sensibility, weren't pretentious at all, were fine with doing things a bit differently and who were, most importantly, creative and talented as f*ck.
I'll never forget how damn excited Matt and I were when we found out about the YEAH! package. We knew this was the team we had to have on our wedding day. When we got the e-mail that we were eligible clients, you could have sworn we won the lottery. It was the best decision ever to hire a collective of vendors who were already friends with each other and had tons of experience working weddings as a team. From the initial call to the big day, each vendor was a creative and thoughtful partner for all things relating to set up, timeline and event flow.
From the bottom of our hearts, we can't say thank you enough to Yeah! for making the music, the photos, the video, the photobooth and the furniture (we couldn't resist bringing on Yeah! Rentals, too!) just so absolutely perfect not only for us, but also our family, our friends and our guests who couldn't stop raving about it all. We'll be forever inspired by their creativity and in love with their willingness to shake up the usual wedding traditions and bring an element of surprise & delight back into the experience.
Short story- You know you picked the right wedding vendors when you're blown away by every single song on the playlist, taking photos with them in the photobooth, getting down with them on the dance floor while belting out every single line of "Summertime in the LBC", and crying tears of pure bliss within seconds of viewing your photo slideshow for the first time. Undeniably, Yeah! Weddings turned our big day into the #bestdayever...#micdrop
Love you guys!
Melissa + Matt"
the second half of m + m's wedding was equally mindblowing. the smilebooth got rushed by guests crazed about ryan gosling, and the dance party went OFF thanks to our very own dj mike cruz from the flashdance, matt's brother sung a personalized rap during the reception, and then matt broke out into a surprise flash mob and made melissa a weeping mess.
below are some more photos of their reception. we really do feel like we won the client lottery with these two, and all of us at YEAH! would do their wedding again every year if we could!
everything about their LA wedding was super unique and the production value was so impressive, especially considering it was 100% DIY. m+m had so many great details and extremely thoughtful themes and ideas that were carried throughout the whole wedding, like: escort cards that they wrote personalized messages on to each and every friend -- all 220 of them! -- paper airplanes (a nod to when they dated long distance and had to fly back and forth to see each other), temporary tattoos, straws for the drinks with funny sayings ("I'm not drunk," "I'm single", "this is water"), a custom neon sign, an amazing s'mores cake by the one and only heirloom la, mid-century lounge furniture provided by YEAH! rentals, and the most detailed / super rad backdrop for a ceremony EVER that matt's brother hand-drew with stats about each of them.
when we created YEAH! weddings we always had dream clients like melissa + matt in mind, and likewise, they planned their wedding with us in mind. they are in every way the ambassadors of YEAH! and we now consider them some of our good friends. this wedding was a culmination of everything we love and we couldn't be happier to have been a part of it!
