The theme was The Nightmare Before Christmas and the general color scheme was white, black, and pink. We did the Tasting of the Four Elements as our ritual and took a celebratory shot after to seal the deal.
Our wedding can best be described as if Tim Burton & The Simpsons had a baby. My husband and I are both extremely silly people, very much into pop culture and comedy, however we both are obsessed with the darker things in life; true crime, dark art, ghost stories and more.
Selena and Josh first met during a PowerHockey tournament in Detroit. For those unfamiliar with the sport, PowerHockey is similar to floor hockey, but all the players play in power wheelchairs. Josh was one of the players, and Selena was an assistant to one of his teammates. When Selena and Josh met, they immediately clicked and shared a lot of laughs.They eventually reconnected a while later, this time for good.
The theme was TIM BURTON. We didn't want a Halloween wedding. We didn't want a wedding specifically themed after any of his particular movies. We wanted our wedding to be a regular, beautiful, fancy wedding, but through the eyes of Tim Burton — TWISTED.
Our wedding was a blend of a whole lot of fall, Halloween, goth, Tim Burton-like elements that all worked together in a surprisingly elegant way. We incorporated as much of our ancestral history as we could. We had photos of our passed relatives at both the ceremony and our reception. I wore the bracelet of Daniel's grandmother, I slipped her wedding ring onto my handkerchief, and I read my vows from a bound volume of the poetry written by Daniel's grandfather. It was important to us to share our roots with each other and our families and friends as we became one.
Tracy and Ben’s Tim Burton-inspired wedding was an amazing reflection of an aesthetic they love. Plus, there were hints of Star Wars and comic books, too. They got married at a private barn in Pipersville, PA that had rustic charm for days and plays host to art shows. Tracy DIYed all of the decorations including the very fun and geeky terrariums.
All of the groom’s side of the wedding party were in kilts (including his sisters!) and their pups made cameos all over. There was a September heat wave going on, so Tracy rocked a gorgeous and goth-inspired black parasol for some ceremony shade. Then it was all about the dancing in the (slightly) cooler barn. Let’s peep this killer goth and Tim Burton-inspired wedding…
