Rebecca + Justin
Classic Comic Book Wedding
August 23, 2014
Landoll's Mohican Castle
When I heard that my dear friends Rebecca and Justin were engaged I was so excited for them. The engagement had been a long time coming, it's not every day that you meet a couple who clicks as much as Rebecca and Justin.
But when I heard that they were planning a Marvel Comic Book Inspired Wedding, I could barely contain my excitement! It's hard not to have fun with theme like this!
Rebecca and Justin's love of the comic book world goes way back. For years they have both enjoyed reading comics, collecting Marvel collectibles, and watching the comic book movies. Since it's been a shared interested for a long time, the two actually got engaged at the local comic book store, Comic Town, where they would go once a week to pick up the latest comics. :-)
Rebecca is incredibly creative with a unique, classy style. Justin had suggested that they use a Marvel Comic Theme and Rebecca thought that would be a neat idea. As she was planning the wedding, she stressed that she wanted it to be fun with a Marvel Comic Flair, but she still wanted it to be classy and romantic. When the big day came, their wedding day was everything they had imagined and more.
The couple wanted a different feel for their wedding and exchanged vows at Landoll's Mohican Castle in Loudonville, Ohio near Mohican State Park. They held an outdoor ceremony with the reception following in the Castle's own reception/event center. We were blessed with the perfect summer day in Ohio- blue skies, puffy clouds, and a lovely 75 degree day. The Castle grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed using them for their portraits.
In order to achieve the classic comic book look they were going for, they recieved a lot of help from their families and friends in making the decorations. From the comic book origami flower bouquets and boutineres, to the tasteful decoupaged wedding shoes and center pieces, no detail was overlooked. Peanut brittle favors for guests were decorated with a custom 8-bit Hulk and She-Hulk sticker, and the wedding cake featured the Hulk peeking out from under it as if he were "squished". One of my favorite details was Rebecca's Captain America veil and Avenger headband.
Their wedding was defintely one to remember. Not only was their theme fun and memorable, but family was such an important part of their day, and the couple enjoyed lots of time with family and friends. All who attended had a wonderful time and I know that it will be a wedding they'll talk about for years to come!
I am so excited for them both and wish them all the best in this next chapter of their lives together!
Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding!
Congratulations again Rebecca and Justin!
