It’s a well-known fact that music brings people together. So when it came time to plan their wedding, Jessie and Garrett figured their favorite concert venue would be the perfect place to bring their guests together. Thanks to planner Emily Aitken Events, the retro nuptials at El Korah Shrine were complete with vintage furniture, colorful pennants, neon everywhere, a disco ball, and ghosts. That’s right, the venue is allegedly haunted.
Jessie looked elegant and edgy in her Theia Couture crepe dress and red booties. We love that she paired the dress with a denim jacket for sunset family portraits, which were beautifully captured by Junebug member Maggie Grace Photography. One look at these vintage-inspired “I do’s,” and you will feel as if you’ve traveled back in time.

Working With Retro Vibes At El Korah Shrine
The design started with the location. The idea of hosting our wedding at our favorite Treefort Music Festival venue really resonated with us as music lovers. The plan continued with the additions of whimsical, artsy elements to everything. The vibe evolved to be a colorful, retro, celebratory fall gathering of friends and family.
How They Personalized The Ceremony
We had our friend perform the ceremony and surprise us with everything he said and wrote our own vows. We also designed each other’s wedding rings and exchanged vows on a custom made rug that is now in our living room.
A Memorable Vow Exchange
Exchanging our vows really stands out for both of us. We were nervous—I hate public speaking, and Garrett wasn’t sure he could get through his vows without crying. Practicing the day before helped both of us stay calm, and reading them out loud helped us slow down and enjoy the actual moment more.
