Janel & Eddie’s Action Packed Central Park Wedding

Janel & Eddie were married at Central Park’s Conservatory Garden. “As soon as planning started I realized that if I worried about giving people what they expected from a wedding or what would make them comfortable, I would not enjoy my day as much as I should” Janel told me. ” So I just went for everything that makes me happy and comfortable and made those the focal points of the wedding.  I don’t see the point in buying an expensive pair of shoes for a dress that you are going to only wear once, so I got cool sneakers that I can wear again, and again, even if the dress will have to stay hung up forever.  I also love our action figure collection and my British Sci-Fi shows (especially doctor who), so I threw them in there too with a weeping angel in my bouquet and a TARDIS as my card box.”

The wedding theme started off as having a vintage carnival vibe, but by the time the wedding rolled round it had morphed into a “Whatever the hell Eddie and Janel want, with a vintage touch” (their own words!) The bride wore a dress by Michelle Roth with customised Converse and carried a DIY bouquet like no other! “Anything can be part of your bouquet,” she explained. ” When my girls started to feel left out that only the boys had action figures as boutonnieres, I went on the hunt for all of the female kick ass action figures that I could find (which was harder than I thought).  I wrapped 22 gauge wire around one their feet to make something like a stalk that I then put into the bouquets so that they had some support.  The result was a unique touch that didn’t necessarily jump out at you right away.”

    I have never commented on a blog before but I couldn’t resist this one… this is an amazing wedding and I feel exactly the same as Janel and Eddie. We’re getting married in Central Park and I know my H2B will love the action figures as button holes idea and I’ve already got a pair of custom Converse so why not another pair? ;-) Love, love, love it all!

  3. this is pretty much perfect to me. real love and real fun and staying true to what the couple wanted. amazing!

  4. This is such an awesome wedding! Although I wish there was a picture of the TARDIS card box. A bride and groom after my own heart.
