We got married in Hell, Michigan and did most of our photos beforehand at the Elmwood Cemetery in Detroit. We wanted a whole “Wed Til’ We’re Dead” mood, and the location definitely helped…
The meaning of “Til Death Do Us Part” is a little more intense when the bride is a funeral director and mental health advocate. Wait until you see all the skull wedding details, black wedding dress, and heavy metal touches!
Our wedding theme was Dungeons & Dragons! It's not just a game to us, it's a lifestyle. I have been playing since I was 12 — my dad Dungeon Mastered a group for me and my best girlfriends. Later, I met my husband through D&D. I have developed the most amazing friendships and family relationships through D&D and it only made sense to make it our wedding theme. We even picked character classes for the event. I was a Paladin and Henry was a Wizard…
Lauren and Bryan are both huge metal music lovers and they were able to incorporate little elements of it into their absolutely gorgeous wedding. It was the best of all worlds! Lauren rocked her stunning black sequined gown, and all the groomsmen had a mini guitar/picks as their boutonnieres. Oh, and don’t miss their matching black and white Adidas, too. And what does a metal loving couple do for their invitations? Design them like a ticket to a rock concert, of course!
Each table was named after the couple’s favorite bands like Megadeath, Van Halen, Slipknot, and Def Leppard. But the real highlight of the night was when Lauren and Bryan got on stage themselves to jam with the wedding band. Check out the response from the guests. Pure concert magic.
My wife and I originally met through our university's Metal Club, so it was only natural that we have a metal-themed wedding to celebrate the style of music that brought us together. The venue was the bottom floor of a yacht that does lunch/dinner cruises, which we chose to both reflect our desire to have both a classy affair and a mark our viking voyage in life as wife and wife.
Can you even get over how gorgeous this goth couple is? With a custom-made black wedding dress and veil, amazing thrones, a coffin ring box, bleeding candles, a HUGE and amazingly goth cake, and of course, a CAVE RECEPTION… we’re sure this wedding will get your heart racing. Don’t miss the Tim Burton-esque invitations, the lush red and black bouquet, and the hilariously charming sand ceremony gone rogue.
