A Theme Park Wedding: Shirley & Elijah

Shirley & Elijah love going to theme parks and Disneyland so when it came to choosing a theme for for their wedding it was the obvious choice. “Our wedding was full of vibrant colors,” the bride wrote. “We went for the overall theme of a theme park called ‘Shirlijahland’. Every aspect of the wedding played off this. Our food was an upscale version of carnival food and our flowers were inspired by wands, pin-wheels, and lollipops. My dress and the dresses of my bridesmaids were fun and whimsical. We wanted people to be blown away and to share in a part of our quirky personalities.”

The ceremony was held in Mater Dolorosa Catholic Parish, with the reception that followed at Terra Gallery, an event space in San Francisco. The couple were able to completely decorate the venue as they liked which suited them perfectly! Origami and Chinese lanterns were hung from the ceiling, the tables all had individually styled centrepieces, and as night fell pink up-lighting was switched on to really add to the party atmosphere!

Gorgeous! Thank you to Shirley & Elijah and their photographer Caroline of Tinywater Photography for sharing these today.

    This is probably the sweetest wedding that I have ever seen. It is silly and kind of dorky in such a special way. I want my wedding to be just as silly!
