A Halloween-esque Steam Train of Epicness

Kim & Alex’s wedding hit me like a steam train of epicness when I laid eyes on it. I’m pretty sure my incessant ramblings can’t bring it justice so I think it’s only fair I hand over to Kim with all the fantastic details. As usual, I’ll be back with the eye candy.

“Originally our theme was “Halloween Town” from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, but as time went on, our theme evolved beyond Tim Burton to include other geeky things we love as a couple such as zombies, toys, film and… well… Halloween!

We were mostly inspired by films (predominantly Tim Burton and Zombie flicks) and our own Halloween experiences. We just looked at the little things we loved most and used that to make our wedding our own.”

Hollywood Rock

Megan & Marcelo met at a punk rock bar in Hollywood… so naturally their wedding would have elements of rock too.  The day took place at the ube cool Marvimon in LA with the beautiful flowers being put together by Holly Flora. The bride wore a short hip wedding dress by Amsale and shoes by Gwen Stafani’s label, L.A.M.B. The groom looked similarly hot to rock in his skull themed accessories. All the music was hand picked and complimented by the couple’s favourite videos projected all night behind the dance floor.  It felt like The Rolling Stones, Bowie, Devo, Love and Rockets and Nick Cave all attended the bash as well!  The guests kept saying was that this wedding was just soooo Megan & Marcelo…and that is one the best compliments a couple can get.

Old Hollywood, Mexican Punk Rock!

Summer & Christopher’s wedding took place in July in a cemetery/mausoleum where the bride’s mother works at their beautiful 1920′s era chapel – certainly made for some awesome shots huh!? Summer told me:
It didn’t bother us that the chapel had a mausoleum inside of it.  It’s not that we were being purposely macabre, but we both have an understanding of the cycle of life, and felt that it would be beautiful, appropriate, and romantic, to have our wedding in a place which encompassed beauty and history.  It was also a nice tribute to my mom, who brought me up with the understanding that death is just another part of life”

Til Death Do Us Part

This British groom and his Texan bride may have met at a Chicago Cubs game but flew back to Texas to get married. Both parties brought some of themselves into their day – most notably in the cakes! Matt must certainly be a football (soccer) fan. I loving Holly’s Justina McCaffrey dress from Belle Vie Bridal Couture in downtown Chicago, the Rock n Roll graffiti portraits (’til death do us part’ how perfect is that!?) and the masquerade ball-esque masks.
