MisterWives’ Frontwoman + Drummer Wed in a Colorful + Fun Celebration!

Rainbow Ranch Wedding

If there’s one thing you should know about the team at GWS it’s that we’re huge music lovers. And no band gets us dancing through the afternoon slump like the upbeat sounds of MisterWives! Mandy is the frontwoman of the indie-pop band we can’t get enough of and Etienne is her long-time bandmate + drummer…GUYS, they got married! Is that not the happiest, most romantic thing you’ve heard all day?!

We are so SO thrilled to share their wedding today. It’s full of color, full of fun, and full of joy. Honestly, it’s like their music come to life. And that means it’s totally authentic to exactly who M + E are which is why we just love it so much! Plus, Anna Lee, the band’s tour photographer on the road, captured the day with a unique level of familiarity to so many people involved in the day.

Komolmis Designs gave us the design scoop: When we asked Mandy and Etienne for their favorite color, they told us, “The rainbow!” This formed the foundation of everything we designed and planned for their wedding! We wanted fun, unique and bright and colorful as they are.

The following is definitely best viewed with MisterWives playing! We suggest Drummer Boy—for obvious reasons ;)

Mandy loves lush, open face flowers, so Fern & Fawn built brightly colored bouquets, along with a flower crown for the bride and boutonnières for groomsmen.

LOVE seeing guys in color and this is how you do it! Etienne rocked the groom look in forest green, while the guys suited up in navy with floral ties all around.
