Alecia is a huge Tim Burton fan and in many of his movies,  Tim uses lighting effects and bursts of extravagant colors (often red) to contribute to the tone and mood of the film.  Since red is Alecia's favorite color, she used it in a similar way in her wedding design. The bridesmaids dresses, tablecloths, boutonnieres, Alecia's bouquet, shoes, nails, and parts of the cakes were red.  "I loved how it pops against the white dress and the lush green ivy of Gabrella Manor"  said Alecia.

Alecia and David both love music.  They choose a classical version of Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" for the bridal party processional song. Alecia and her father came in to "Adrift At Peace" by Nine inch Nails.
Once pronounced man and wife, the couple recessed the ceremony to Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Child" and Alecia and her father later danced to the Allman Brother's version of "Little Wing."
