From the cleverly named centerpieces with homages to the books to the bouquets made of folded paper from books that were sacrificed for the greater good of this wedding (the bride is a librarian, so if she is fine with it - I am fine with it) that included each bridesmaids' name there wasn't a single detail that Holly and Jason overlooked.
When their maid of honor, Katy, mentioned she was suggesting me as a photographer I couldn't wait to see how this wedding turned out. When it comes to themed weddings there's that fine line between epic and cringe-worthy. "Epic" isn't really a strong enough word for how I feel this Potter-inspired wedding was handled. They even had chocolate turtles after dinner - maybe I ate two helpings.
I bought this ring box just for her ring - and it turned out so well that I can't wait to use it again for someone else's set one day soon.
I loved everything about this day. From the first look where Holly cried walking toward her soon-to-be husband to the trains that would pass by the station periodically. I hope you enjoy these previews - and I look forward to sharing the full wedding in a few weeks with everyone. Until then, see if you can name all of the bridesmaids based on their bouqets and show this couple some love.
If you know a Harry Potter fan - be sure to share this with them so they can see that a Harry Potter wedding can be classically romantic and something that would make J.K. Rowling proud. Be sure to check out all of the vendors who helped pull this wedding off.
PS: We really got lucky enough for a train to go by during their first look.
