Gorgeously Geeky Harry Potter Wedding!

Thursday, August 2, 2012

Alison wrote to me today to share some pics of her wedding last month, and WOW. I think you guys are going to liiiike them!


The Marauder's Map wedding programs:

 "Mischief Managed" was inscribed on the backs. (!!)


The wedding party, dressed in each of the four House colors:


Even the bouquets were color-coordinated!

The table settings, strewn with pages from the books (I know, it hurts just a little) and mini potion bottles:
I like the bottle place holders and table numbers.




The reception tent, complete with floating candles. (AAAH!)


Ok, seriously, how'd you guys do that, Ali?!




Matt and Ali's AMAZING custom wedding cake topper:
They're both Ravenclaw; see the little sigil on the tower door? And Matt is holding a D20 die behind his back! Too cute!

And perhaps the sweetest detail of this Potter-ific wedding? 

Instead of "I do," Matt and Ali each said, "Always."

Hang on, I think I have something in my eye over here. [sniffle] 'Scuse me.


A HUGE thank you to Alison for sharing her simply magical wedding with us. Oh, and, guys? If and when the time comes, I think "Remus" would make an EXCELLENT boy's name. Just sayin'.

PS - Oh, and here's the other geeky wedding making the rounds online this week. The lineup of groomsmen in Jayne hats is worth the click alone. ;)

  1. I love how the bridal party was a tribute to each of the houses without being literal or costumey.

  2. Jen, when and if I ever get married I plan on having a Steampunk Jedi wedding. Jedi ceremony and a Steampunk reception. Costumes will be encouraged.

  3. I love this! They did a great job of running the theme throughout the wedding, but not letting it become cheesy.

  4. Had to show this to my oldest son. We're reading Harry Potter together & he loves it. (Especially Hermione. Think he has a geekling crush on her.) Only up to the 2nd book so far, so he didn't get the Marauder's Map reference. Still, he thought it was very cool.

  5. Stop. I can't cry! I put makeup on, for once, and now it's going to be all over my face!

  7. Oh. My. Goodness.

  8. I'm so jealous! Is the two year anniversary too soon to renew our vows? :)

  9. How amazing! My husband and I drove down to Orlando for our honeymoon so that we could visit Harry Potter world! Now I wish we had done something HP themed in our wedding, too! That is too cool! Congrats to the happy couple!

  10. SWOON. As for kids' names- take your pick; the books are chock-full! I especially love that a lot of the names are derived from mythological, literary, or historical figures, constellations, etc.

    I know this is totally off topic but you should check out these steampunk corsets:

  12. that's awesome! My husband and I had a Harry Potter-themed wedding dance in 2001, but nowhere this cool! (Our first date/engagement were Harry Potter-themed, too... and we were married on September 1!)

  14. Ah, my heart just melted a little! The clothes are gorgeous, and that's got to be one of the cutest cake toppers ever.

  15. This just made me grin like a fool. I am totally doing a Harry Potter wedding!

  16. Am I the only Harry Potter nerd who doesn't get the D20 thing? Anyone want to explain, please? :)

  17. For more pics and a the story behind the other sci-fi and firefly themed wedding check out my other favorite website (after epbot and cakewrecks of course)Offbeat Bride.

    They have steampunk weddings and tons of geeky and punky and just awesome goodness. The whole offbeat empire is awesome, and i think you'd like it Jen.

  18. Just tell yourself that the pages are from copies so well-loved that they were falling apart and chunks had fallen out so that's really all they were good for. Like, um, my family's copy of Chamber of Secrets.

  19. Hey, I live there! Wish I knew them and would have been invited! LOL

  20. @ Alison - the dice aren't a HP thing; I think the couple just also enjoys gaming. All the groomsmen wore D20 cufflinks, too, so it looks like the dice were just a fun add-in.

  21. Does anyone know where they got the cake topper? It's one of the best I've seen!

  22. This is the bride here! Thank you everyone for the awesome comments! The candles are hanging using fishing line so that in most of the pictures you can't see it and they look to be floating. I also want to give a shout out to my awesome photographer who captured our day so perfectly and took all the pictures Kristin Hansen

  24. Adorable! Sometimes I question my feelings about not getting married when I see things like this. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Too bad my husband is a Muggle. I would have loved this wedding! He just doesn't get Harry Potter!

    ReplyDelete
  26. "Always." :') Ack!!! So adorable! Well done, fellow Ravenclaws!

  28. Holy wedding amazingness!!! I always get a little jealous to see awesome geek weddings like this though because I went traditional. Maybe some day we can renew our vows and geek it out to our little geeky hearts' content. <3 So amazing and congrats the the fellow Ravenclaws. :)
