Luke and Suzanne's Muppet wedding #Wedding Porn#birdcage veil#colored crinoline#los angeles#muppets#nintendo#outdoor#star wars#tea length dress August 16 | Megan Finley meganfinley So I had the esteemed honor (and OMG sweet freaking luck) of shooting the very first wedding ever held at the Jim Henson Co. lot in Los Angeles. Here are some of my favorite shots of Luke and Suzanne's Muppet wedding — well, from the photos I've edited so far! Charlie Chaplin + wedding dress = amazing Mom helping with the dress. Oh and did I mention that they had matching bride and groom muppets? Yeah, what kind of muppet wedding would this be without muppets!? And Suzanne had the "health insurance heart" made as a surprise for Luke. So… SURPRISE LUKE! I could do a post on their centerpieces alone. Each one had a different nerdy/movie/pop-culture reference with corresponding photos of the two of them in character. Related Post Crash this geeky, Star Wars-themed, nerdstravaganza wedding at the Jim Henson Studios Remember a while ago when I got to crash Offbeat Bride Jennifer and her husband Ryan's wedding at the Jim Henson Studios here in LA?... Read more The bridal party. Oh yeah, I also rented this RIDICULOUS fisheye lens. So be looking forward to more funky fisheye photos, using it for the dancing was my favorite. The ceremony begins… The WE DID IT! moment alone. Their favors were ring pops and customized dice. The ring pops were a real hit. They had an In & Out truck for their dinner! Their wedding cake was based on the battle scene on Hoth in Star Wars with the biggest freaking AT-AT I've ever seen. And if you look closely, Luke modified the cake knife to have a light saber handle… I also shot some of my favorite first dance photos EVAR. The Jim Henson Co. in full swing. Stay tuned for more photos! Until then, here's a video of the Luke and Suzanne muppets singing the Beatles… Luke and Suzanne turned the screening room into a place for their guests to play Beatles Rock Band — silliness ensued. Oh and as an added bonus, here are some goofy photos of the Finleys… Aaron fits right in amongst the company of Muppets. Me at the wedding, always the professional.

I kept asking Megan, how did we get so freaking lucky!?! The wedding was awesome and the couple was even cooler! Reply Guh. If I was drinking soda, the awesomeness would have made it come out my nose. Reply Oh my God that wedding just invented a whole new class of awsomeness. !!!!! must see more !!!!! Reply I'm so excited, Megan's going to be my photographer for my pi-day wedding next year! Squee!!!! Reply It's so awesome/weird to see pictures of my own wedding on OBB after having drooled over so much amazing wedding porn here over the past year and being inspired by so many other couples! Squee! Major props to Megan for these beautiful photos, and for generally geeking out with us on the big day! We couldn't have asked for a better photography team. Fun fact…that Gremlin is signed by Joe Dante, and was the first birthday present Luke ever got me. A mutual love of Gremlins 2 a happy marriage makes! Reply Okay, where did you get that beyond-awesome fascinator? Because I need it. I really do. (I'm a huge comic nerd and I have a passion for all those awesome sound effects words) Reply Thanks! I had the fascinator custom made through the most incredible Etsy seller (she even tracked down the perfect blue veil): http://www.etsy.com/shop/janinebasil Seriously, LOVE her fascinators and she was a joy to collaborate with! Reply Thank you so very much! Reply When i saw that fascinator I knew it must have been one of hers, as i'm looking at doing something similar in red and black for my comic book/nintendo themed wedding Reply UM SERIOUSLY AMAZING. 1 agrees Reply My brain just expolded from the awesomeness of this wedding!!! Reply I love that building–it was originally charlie chaplin's–I was there recently for a whiskey tasting, but would've never thought of a wedding there! Great venue choice, and I second the AWESOME fascinator! One of my best friends has a tattoo just like it Most of all, I love that you managed to show that wacky/fun and simple/elegant aren't mutually exclusive! Reply Rad! Just rad!! Reply OMFG. My friends used "Somebody's Getting Married!" as one of their songs during the ceremony, and I was literally bouncing in my chair because I EFFING LOVE the Muppets! Seriously, I adore them. I grew up on a hefty diet of Sesame Street, and I am totally and completely in love with Kermit the Frog. 1 agrees Reply We worked lyrics from "Somebody's Getting Married" into our vows ("He'll make me happy each time I see him," etc.), Muppets Take Manhattan is far and away my favorite muppet movie! Reply Dude. Dude. Dude. Duuuuuude. Whoah. So much awesomeness in one place my head don't work. Reply THIS! Reply O.M.G. Tremendous awesomeness and I wanna see more!!!! COngratulations! Reply This is how you know this is an incredible wedding – I showed the page to my fiance, and he laughed out loud and said "Can we just steal THEIR wedding??" Reply This is probably my favorite wedding I've seen on OBB so far. AMAZING! The Muppets have a special place in the hearts of my fiancÃ© and myself. I LOVE THIS! Also, is that a Dolly Couture dress? Reply Gosh, thanks! The dress is Stephanie James Couture, highly recommended if you're into tea length dresses and/or colored crinolines. Reply I am into both! 😉 Thanks for sharing, and congrats on your AMAZING wedding. Reply SO AMAZING! I would love to see each and every centerpiece too! And may I just say, the picture with their muppets making out in the background same as they were…made me smile so hardcore! 1 agrees Reply PURE AMAZINGNESS Reply GAH!!!! LOVE! I interned at Jim Henson Studios the summer after I graduated from college and I've always dreamed of having a wedding/reception there. So happy to have seen somebody actually do it! It's a great location! Reply Three cheers for f***ing In N Out!! I moved away from California four years ago and I miss it EVERY. DAY. This wedding was just… awesome. Reply You guys are my heroes. <3 Reply Wow…I mean…really…WOW! I'm stunned, and totally in LOVE! WOW…. Reply Huge fan of the headpiece! AWESOME! Reply This wedding has SO… MANY… THINGS I LOOOVE. Congrats to the kickass couple! PS Every wedding I see done by Megan makes me happy I booked her as my photographer for my (almost) Halloween wedding next year! Reply I absolutely love this wedding. The three things I think I geeked out the most for were: The birdcage veil: my fiance is a comic book artist. When I saw the veil I kept yelling "Honey, look! It's so cool!" The dress. So cute, but if you click on the designer's store, it's ALL cute. I didn't even like tea length until after today. The invitations. What a great sense of humor. I posted a link to this on FB and I've been getting comments about it all day. Everyone loves this wedding. Congrats and thanks for sharing to the couple. 1 agrees Reply I showed this to my Jim Henson obsessed FH…our wedding is two months away and he wants to scrap the whole thing in order to clone this one! Reply oh my god love. In'n'out? muppets? Pow headthinggieeee. her DRESS is just MAGIC. I love these people and want to marry them ;D Reply Luke & Suzanne – Have I told you lately that I love you?? Megan – You know what? I love you too! These are awesome! Reply Laura! I was just literally JUST thinking about you an hour ago. You know I love you back. 😉 Reply Oh oh oh so so so awesome. Every time i have ever driven by that place i have melted a little inside. These guys might be the coolest couple on the planet! Reply madly in love with the dress! Reply That is AWESOME. It's not easy being (enviously) green! LOL! Reply I LOVE THIS! I swear my husband sometimes IS a Muppet. Where did you guys get the custom ones? Reply Hey! FAO Schwartz in NYC has a muppet whatnot workshop, where we got the muppets made, and then customized them with our wedding clothes (and a moustache, for Luke). They're actually pretty reasonably priced, considering the quality, but the only catch is that you can't order them online. You may be able to get them to mail you a packet and order over phone, I was lucky that my sis lives there and could order them in person! Reply OMG, love the Muppets! Too rad. Reply beautifully wonderfully awesome. I esp. love her dress too, that little pop of tulle. ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh YEA. Reply Anyone know how the centerpieces were made? Reply Hey Vicky, Technically, Luke should be replying to this, as he was the one to slavishly put all of these together, but I can give you the basics. We knew we wanted each centerpiece to have some commonalities in terms of design (cheap white lazy susans via amazon, Crate and Barrel lucite photo frames…which were a little pricy but we smartly repurposed as gifts for family members who helped out with the wedding). We knew early on that we were going to theme each of the tables around one of our favorite media properties, and we already had pictures of us in many of the costumes, and many of the toys/props you see in Megan's fab pics came from our personal collection. So, it was just a matter of making costumes/taking pictures for some tables (e.g. you can see me having issues keeping my cardboard Wario 'stache on, that was thrown together quickly), and tracking down some toys online over a 6 month period. Once we had everything, Luke designed an icon/logo for each table (also used for the favors/place cards), and put together the centerpieces. There were some balance issues, and some of the toys were damaged a bit from having to be attached to the centerpiece with epoxy, but otherwise it was all pretty easy. It definitely helps if you already have many of the raw materials available! Hope that helps! Reply This wedding makes me smile from ear to ear…everything about it is hands-down KICKASS and so much fun. Reply LOVE your dress!!! Don't suppose you want to sell it? 😉 Reply The muppets making out cracks me up! This is awesome, I'm a muppet fan. Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
