A Broadway Musical Wedding: Carin & Pouya

When Carin & Pouya got engaged, the bride instantly knew what their wedding theme would be – Broadway musical! “I have always loved Broadway musicals and three years ago Pouya took me to my first live production – The Wizard of Oz”, Carin writes. “I was instantly hooked! Since then I’ve got season tickets to Broadway performances across Canada including our hometown of Edmonton. I never thought of incorporating that into the wedding, but after a while the Broadway musical theme came to me while I was bored one day in a class in University. I was looking around on the internet when I saw a wedding program that looked like a playbill and the ideas spiraled from there!”

The ceremony was held in Hastings Lake Gardens and the reception was at Fort Edmonton Park. This venue was an old aeroplane hanger which provided the perfect blank canvas – and plenty of space for their party. Guests were greeted by a red carpet and ‘paparazzi’ as they entered, and given tickets to the ‘show’. From the ticket booth to the cake, and Rocky Horror Bar to the Daddy Warbucks dessert table, every element of the decor was in-keeping with the theme. Each table was styled differently, each inspired by a different Broadway musical, including My Fair Lady, The Wizard of Oz, Grease, Legally Blonde, Wicked, The Lion King, Mary Poppins and Mamma Mia. Which is your favourite?!

  1. What a cool idea for a wedding theme! I love those shoes. It even looks like the bride wore ruby slippers 😀
    I think my favourite table is the Phantom of the Opera one, or maybe the Wicked one…..

    This is so impressive! The amount of time and thought that’s obviously gone into their table plan is astonishing, great to see what is possible when you put your mind to it!

    I was lucky enough to sit at the “Hairspray” table at this wedding. What a beautiful day, wonderful theme and fabulous couple! I am so glad this is being shared because I could not even count the number of people I have told about this wedding.
