One piece of advice we give all our clients is to be themselves. It’s easy to get swept away by all the cool things you see on Pinterest or get pressured into choices by well-meaning relatives. We believe there is no one right way to have a wedding, and we will work with you to create the most fun, representative wedding you can imagine.

Samantha and Zach didn’t need our advice. They came to us with a vague plan to have a space-themed wedding of some sort, possibly involving “Star Wars” characters and other costumes. We were all in on the idea! Last weekend at Olbrich Botanical Gardens and Olin Park Pavilion, Samantha and Zach, along with their closest friends and family, all delivered.

While the Olbrich Gardens ceremony begin simply and classically, the recessional turned into The Imperial March as Zach donned a Darth Vader mask and cape as they left the intimate ceremony in unique style.

So when we arrived at the reception in the Olin Park Pavilion, we were charmed by all the space-themed details. Our favorite was a sign proclaiming “Mutual Weirdness Forever.” But even more fun were the varied costumes the guests wore, from R2 D2 dresses to Princess Leia hair buns and white robes to Zach’s Darth Vader bow tie to steampunk jet packs and goggles.

To borrow a phrase, the force is strong with these two.
