Honestly, Kelly and Jason’s intense love of many things sci-fi was such an awesome running theme for their wedding. I loved geeking out with them, finding all the details (because, well, I am also a sci-fi nerd) and documenting how much fun they had.
One thing I find difficult as I write about weddings all the time is this – we often look through photos from events and focus on the details that look charming, the elements that stand out. But to me weddings aren’t about the trappings. I don’t want to distill a celebration down to the most common denominator. And yet that is by far the easiest way to write about weddings – the quirky details, the unique customs, the offbeat or unexpected elements.
So, I am really excited to share these photos from Kelly and Jason’s wedding at the Loring and Varsity theater. Yeah, I way love the Death Star purse Kelly had. I love their video game elements and Kelly’s blue dress (TARDIS blue, even?)
But I don’t want to offer these details up as a fun oddity. I want to show them as they are – an authentic extension of the quirky, awesome, powerful affection and shared lives of Kelly and Jason. As parts of a day full of laughter and joy and celebration.
So I’m trying something new – captioning each of the photos, really showcasing only the elements that complete the wedding story, and giving a little insight my thought process as I document and conceptualize the images in the first place.
I present Kelly and Jason’s Sci-Fi loving wedding at the Loring and Varsity: loads of celebrating, an epic dance party, and a wedding.
