Wedding theme: If Tim Burton & The Simpsons had a baby

My husband and I are great lovers of history, literature, and the arts. I grew up as the child of an actor and an opera singer and Steven's father is also a musician, so we were both immersed in the world of the performing arts from birth.

Blue hair and baseball caps? All perfect for this Victorian with a twist wedding

Our wedding was our own style for sure. I have always loved vintage and Victorian styles. But to give it a twist, I have blue hair! Mark also goes nowhere without his baseball cap. So I said wear it! He did and I felt it was perfect for us. Being on a very tight budget, we had lots of DIY from seating charts, favors, and table numbers. It was Victorian with a twist!
