In the lead up to our wedding day, my groom Sammy and I sat watching The Witcher. Both of us agreed the king’s crown was cool.
“You should wear a crown at the wedding!” I said, and Sammy laughed.
Jacqueline and William’s moon and stars-themed wedding sent us into the galaxy when we saw it. But their meet-cute story is on a whole other level. Just wait until you hear how her galaxy dress went from conversation starter to fab wedding garb. Hear the story straight from this gorgeous bride (the owner of Pinup Pixie Boutique, the first black-owned pinup boutique in Louisiana, by the way!).
If it was up to my husband we would have had a wrestling wedding, but we landed on a carnival theme because we felt like there was so much we could do with it. We picked a historic site, Glen Echo Park, which was once an amusement park in the 40 and 50s and still had some of the lights and structures standing.
The theme was a Jewish wedding with a Middle Earth and Star Wars twist. Costumes, lightsabers, swords, dancing, and giant turkey legs made the celebration go wild. But it was the meaning and intent that brought everyone to years.
Will and Emily’s wedding combined traditional Jewish elements with fun, personalized nods to the couple. Emily made the escort cards herself (paper flowers!) and other fun touches included a candy buffet with their favorite treats and the cake topper (wedding versions of their favorite Mario Kart characters!).
Álvaro and Josechu met while they were both playing in an opera orchestra which sounds terribly romantic to me. They fell in love and five years later, a proposal happened.
One morning, Álvaro found a note that lead him to the garden where Josechu had prepared a private picnic brunch… or at least that’s what got Álvaro to walk over…
