From the moment we met Adrienne & Erik we knew we would be friends. For one thing, Adrienne was wearing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle sweatshirt, and for another they were planning on having light sabers as part of their wedding. We couldn’t resist them! Their wedding was the day before Halloween last year, and I wanted to wait to share them for this Halloween!
What I love about this wedding is that they made it exactly what they wanted… each part of it reflected who they are without trying to make it fit something that wasn’t them. There were aspects of Halloween throughout the wedding, but it also had an elegant, retro feel to it that was fun and beautiful.
Adrienne had always wanted to married in a church, but when she found out about Cedarwood‘s outdoor Cathedral, she knew it was just what she was looking for.
When we arrived at Cedarwood, we saw Erik’s amazing grooms cake… the Ectomobile from the Ghostbusters! Right away I knew we had to bring something for them while we were photographing them. We sent our assistant (thanks Joel!) home to pick up props that we had made from our costumes the year before… Proton Packs! Yep, Peter and I have handmade Proton Packs. Adrienne and Erik were stellar modeling them for the camera. And who can resist their entrance with Lightsaber’s?
The ladies makeup was done by the fabulous girls at Harlow Salon.
Here are some of my favorite details from the day made by the wonderful Cedarwood team. I love how they customize everything for their clients and make truly unique weddings for them!
Adrienne & Erik have an amazing story that is written about so well on Cedarwood’s blog. There are also more fun photos from their day on here. Be sure to read about them in Part 1 and Part 2 of Cedarwood’s blog.
