Emily and Steven’s Quirky, Literary, Superhero Wedding
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.
Library cards as date night ideas! Does it get any cuter than that? And their “Up!” themed decorations were definitely swoon-worthy.
More beautiful books:
This has to be one of the cutest pie toppers ever:
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.
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.
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.
