I commissioned a Renaissance faire vendor to make my purple leather and multicolor dyed silk dress with an ornate Sailor Moon themed Silver Millennium detail on the back, and both of us wore cloth shoes that I had covered in art representing our favorite fandoms. We called our mixed-gendered wedding parties the Bridesguard and Groomsguard, and the perfect metaphor for us as a couple actually occurred right before the wedding when they took us out and shielded us from each others' sight so we could do an Articuno raid in Pokémon Go standing back to back before the ceremony.
Our wedding was held at a gorgeous hall that is owned by a Franciscan monastery, which has little details that make it look like a medieval church (in the middle of Washington D.C.!). My husband collects swords, so our cocktail hour featured friends from the HEMA Alliance (the society for Historical European Martial Arts) performing a demonstration of sword fighting through the ages.
Kim and Jen, in their matching (but differently colored!) dresses, rocked a sentimental and super sweet wedding on Jennifer’s family farm in Louisiana.
Their reception was held at The Cabin in Darrow, and after their first dance, Jennifer sneaked off to change into a T-Rex costume to surprise everyone. The Anteeks kept the dance floor hopping the whole night.
It was a comic book themed wedding in which Batman married the Joker at Villa Antonia. I was the Joker, draped in a purple, detachable train wedding gown that I designed and had made. The gown was accessorized by a top hat veil. The groom was Batman, the best man was Superman, and the maid of honor was Catwoman. The other groomsmen where the Green Lantern, Iron Man, Captain America, The Riddler, and Deadpool. The bridesmaids were Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, The Flash, and Storm.
We called upon our beloved wedding vendors to give us as many blood-curdling, goth glam, and wickedly fab Hallowedding details as they could find so that we could round up a spectacular array of terrorizing trickery. Your own Halloween wedding will be BOMB with these ideas (or just lurk for fun!).
Aimee rocked a gown of deep purple lace which, of course, looks amazing against a fall backdrop of yellows and oranges. Her partner Matt had a matching black suit and purple tie for the wedding at Cedar Creek Estate in Mount Tambourine in Queensland, Australia.On top of the Halloween theme, the pair also loves Harry Potter and offered guests handmade wands to wave them down the aisle. There was also a Marauder’s Map seating chart to add even more magic to an already super magical day. Are you ready to get some Potterphile meets Halloween good times on?
