Offbeat Bride’s Executive Editor got married! Catherine and her husband Steven share a ton of geeky and pop culture interests so it made sense to infuse fun references, soundtrack themes, and fandom homages into their whimsical, pop culture-themed wedding in Chicago. It was held at a West Loop venue with a feast, an ice cream cart, a Hogwarts Great Hall photo booth, and dancing awkwardly into the night.
Don’t miss the bride’s custom dyed ombre unicorn dress!

Marich and Mackmade my heart leap with joy with their Harry Potter herbology-themed wedding in Washington. If you don’t already know, herbology is the study of the magical properties of plants within the Wizarding World. they were inspired by the wide open windows that their venue, The Black Pearl, had which had a bit of a greenhouse vibe. They added greenery, some mandrakes, Quidditch goal posts, a Monster Book of Monsters, Acromantulas, and so many more details you Potterphiles will surely spot. Don’t miss the Flying Ford Anglia!
The Wizarding World in Orlando, Florida was the perfect place to encourage their magical minds and this spirit of playfulness that makes them so fantastic together.
