I wanted to wait for the perfect time to release this wedding blog and what better month, than my very favorite, October!
If you saw our Cemetery Engagement Session post back in April, you know just how excited we were to plan Steffanie and Mike's "Nightmare Before Christmas" inspired wedding. Of course, it turned out to be more perfect than we could have imagined.
Not only do we adore this couple, but we were in love with all of their ideas for the theme. The invites, dresses, bouquets and boutonnieres, cake, guestbook, table settings and centerpieces, grand entrance, and everything in between each had a touch of unique style from The Nightmare Before Christmas. From pumpkins and coffins to Jack Skellington silhouettes, this wedding would be any Tim Burton fan's dream! White and black with cobalt blue accents was the perfect color scheme for Steffanie and Mike's special day. With a little bit of Christmas, a little bit of Halloween, and a beautiful May afternoon, we had the best of all seasons to make this day truly magical.
Steffanie's beautiful daughter, Alison, played a major role in Steffanie and Mike's day. From the first look to the ceremony and the couple's grand entrance at the reception. We were so happy to see Mike get to share this special day with two of the most important ladies in his life and to watch them become one family. After a perfect evening of saying "I do", taking hundreds of fun photos around the Nixon Library, and dancing the night away, the couple departed, surrounded by their loved ones cheering and waving sparklers, as they headed back to the Disney Grand Hotel in a vintage limousine.
Just like Jack and Sally, it is plain to see, that Steffanie and Mike are simply meant to be!
And they lived happily ever after!
