If you’re a fan of Netflix’s Stranger Things, you’ll know that season 3 starts tonight and should be lots of retro horror fun. The idea for this Stranger Things wedding inspiration came after photographer Julie Floro saw Mike and Eleven kiss at the Snow Ball and couldn’t stop imagining their fictional future marriage, complete with Eggo waffle bar, Upside Down-inspired florals (with red lilies reminiscent of the Demogorgon’s mouth!), and outfits inspired by the show including the Snow Ball.
There were ’80s retro invites complete with cassette tape alluding to the “Should I Stay or Should I Go” scene, a living room backdrop, “friends don’t lie” pin favors, a nail bat that videographer Kristian Golick made out of a vintage bat with 8″ nails.
They started the day riding bikes down wooded back roads just like in the show, had a Dungeons and Dragons table for guests, and ended the night in the dark woods in fog, with flashlights, hunting Demogorgans.
