Is there anything more rad than a wedding based on gardens, a love of brunch, and Swamp Thing? This boho meets comic book wedding at Elizabeth Park in Hartford, CT is a surprisingly awesome blend of geek and chic.
A piece was read from Swamp Thing issue #34 in the ceremony, of which pages were also featured in the guest book poster at the reception.
Emily and Casey crafted a lot of the details themselves including the intricate table numbers and beautiful water colored place cards. They're both passionate about environmental justice (bees in particular), so the very intentional choice was made to use local Connecticut honey as the favor. The surprise groom's cake featured other comic characters, The Maxx and Julie Winters. There’s even a geeky pun for their wedding cake, which was topped with Belle from Disney and Beast from X-Men, thus giving you Beauty and the Beast. You have to see this wedding…
