A fantastical villainous Candyland sideshow music fest wedding

My husband and I live in and run a House Of Oddities Museum in Pittsburgh called Trundle Manor. We’re used to being surrounded by vintage taxidermy, dead things floating in jars, coffins, and our own art, so the wedding had to be grand enough and weird enough to suit us.

Our wedding cake was a zombified Marie Antoinette head festooned with feathers and candy! It sat alongside our faux wedding cake topped with the taxidermied squirrels we made on our first date in the basement.

Motorcycles, cowboy chic, & vinyl at this Pennsylvania backyard wedding

I have heard it told that when a hairless cat watches you get ready for your wedding, you're in for a lifetime of good luck. You haven't heard that? It's a thing. So when Britta and Tomy's no-frills Pennsylvania backyard wedding came across my screen, I knew it was good luck.

You'll be enthralled by the many motorcycles and vans, casual cowboy chic, the vintage-fab ladies arriving in a classic car, and the pops of red everywhere.
