Emily and Steven’s Quirky, Literary, Superhero Wedding

Posted by Melissa Claire Photography on March 24, 2013 in Weddings | No Comments

I just love quirky weddings! Emily and Steven’s wedding was truly unique with its many lovely elements and wonderful details that ultimately created an aura of literature, superheroes, and pie. It’s a wedding that I won’t soon forget :)

Both the ceremony and reception were held at St. Stephen’s Presbyterian Church in Fort Worth which is an absolutely breathtaking location.

I arrived while Emily was getting ready could sense the growing anticipation in the room.

As Emily is a librarian, and Steven teaches history (hence the literary theme), it was almost too perfect that I was able to photograph her wedding dress in a library! And I totally loved the addition of a navy cardigan.

Why yes, these groom’s boutonnieres are made of actual comic book pages!

While I was documenting Emily and her friends all getting ready, Nick took the guys outside for the absolutely necessary unveiling-of-the-inner-superhero photo. emily-steven-wedding-14

Library cards as date night ideas! Does it get any cuter than that? And their “Up!” themed decorations were definitely swoon-worthy.

Seriously, this church is so beautiful and classic: real bells, a pipe organ in the rear choir loft, beautiful stone walls, and so much stained glass.

After family photos, Emily and Steven took a few minutes to have a quiet moment to eat before heading over to the reception.emily-steven-wedding-48 emily-steven-wedding-49 emily-steven-wedding-50    emily-steven-wedding-54  emily-steven-wedding-56

I loved these adorable mason jars which served the dual purpose of root beer float containers!

Krystal and Matt (whose wedding we’re photographing this September!) did a fantastic job working a photo booth during the reception! You can visit her photo booth/photography website here.emily-steven-wedding-64

It was then time for toasts:

I just thought this was appropriate and perfect (the reception tables had butcher paper and crayons for everyone to express themselves):

Amidst the hubbub, this guy was calmly reading and enjoying a Coke like a boss. So cute!

Emily and Steven, it was such an honor to be invited in to document your wedding day.
