Luke & Suzanne's Muppet wedding

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!

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.

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.

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…

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…

Comments on Luke and Suzanne’s Muppet wedding

    • I know! I kept asking Megan, how did we get so freaking lucky!?! The wedding was awesome and the couple was even cooler!

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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. 🙂

    • 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!
