Want to see what you’d get if you combined a love of sci-fi, handmade costumes derived from characters in Star Trek and Mass Effect, and a movie theater venue? You’d have this theatrical science wedding with awesome visuals, amazing sci-fi readings, and a team of “Squadmates.” Though they may have run into some technical issues at the ceremony, it was all worth it for the groom’s grandmother’s comment: “Weddings keep getting weirder.” Hell yes, they do!
Between Offbeat Bride readers, our archive of real weddings, and our Vendor Guide, we’ve seen a LOT of vendor recommendations. So we decided to start rounding up these nuggets of info sourced directly from our readers for a series of reader recommended vendor list posts. We’re continuing on to another one of our largest markets: venues in New York City and the greater New York area.
A little Star Wars in the cake toppers, a little SuperWhoLock in the DIYed bouquet, and a whole lot of pie, paper flowers, and photo booth shenanigans. This wedding even had a taco bar. But our favorite parts were the movie posters redone with the bride and groom. So epic.
We decided to start rounding up a vendor list sourced directly from our readers for a series of reader recommended vendor list posts. We’re starting with venues in and around Chicago! Let’s take a look at who our readers have recommended, where they are located, and how you can contact them to get your Chicago venue search started.
A fabulous and glittery pink dress, a drive-in playing Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, tons of free popcorn and candy, and an amazing live jam session of lots of musical friends — are you in yet?! If not, get ready to be taken in by the dreamy, post-rain field photos and wild and woolly dance shots.
A killer movie theater venue, some 1920s fashion, and a recessional with a marching band — get ready for this Old Hollywood good time. And just wait until you read the bride’s description of the ceremony entrance. Talk about a way to get us all excited about aisle-walking! But best of all… there is a giant, 40-person karaoke battle to none other than Meatloaf.
