A curious masquerade wedding of oddities and glamour

The theme started out as just “masquerade,” as I’ve always wanted to have or attend a masquerade ball, but as we began to brainstorm ideas, we started working bits of ourselves into the details. My husband and I have a large collection of antiques and oddities, and we ended up incorporating different pieces from our home into each of the centerpieces and the decor. Thus, “The Curious Masquerade” was born. Maps, medical models, scientific instruments, antique candelabras, and other various things all got (carefully!) flora-fied and bedecked.

It’s a Canadian masquerade wedding that is making our lives.
