Jonnorae’s Nerdy Movie Theatre Wedding

Amorae & Jonny- or Jonnorae as they often go by – wanted a very personal wedding…and they certain achieved that by celebrating their self proclaimed “nerdom”! The pulpit that the officiant stood was a throwback to the pipes that Mario traveled down, and instead of a typical unity candle or sand ceremony, they brewed a potion like Harry Potter! At the reception they wanted to pay homage to their ‘nerdiness’ with centrepieces of books, legos and miniature games hidden inside the hand painted faux books. They also held a quiz for their guests to play at their tables called “Jonnorae Geekdom Trivia” (by the way, I love this idea – we did it too!)

The ceremony, held at Lakewood Theater in Dallas, TX was just as bespoke. Instead of traditional vows they played a round of rock, paper, scissors to decide who would read theirs first, and afterwards they both phones to update their facebook statuses to married!

Thank you to photographer Brandi for sharing this wedding today

    I love the color scheme, the use of converses, the use of a theater, and most of all, love the facebook updating idea at the end of the ceremony! (already planning on at least changing our facebook relationship status during the ceremony, but a wall update is a great idea!)

    I stumbled across this post because I live in Dallas and I’m trying to help a friend with her wedding dress…she wants a colorful petticoat under hers as well. Is there any contact info for Melanie Fredrickson??? That dress is amazing

  6. katherine willis

    how did you get that dress? my best friend is getting married in july and wants a similar look for her dress. pettycoats??

    Did you dye your petticoat yourself or did you buy it like that? I’ve only ever seen people do the one colour. My wedding colours are the exact same and I was going back and four debating if I would do mine blue or purple but if there’s a way I can get both colours in there, I will totally do that instead!

    I am getting married on 4/29/17, and this is EXACTLY the dress I want, only with peek-a-boo red crinoline, and I’ll be wearing red Converse. My daughter will be wearing the same dress only smaller, with black peek-a-boo crinoline and black Converse.

    Can you share my email address with your friend and find out if she could make dresses like that? Absolutely perfect.

    Hi! First off, CONGRATS on an amazingly unique wedding! I am doing the same colors as well and I LOVE the converse and petticoat idea!! Could you please tell me where you were able to go to get a two colored petticoat? So far, everyone I’ve contacted on Etsy can only do one color and yours is PERFECT.
