Yes, you read that correctly – Superheroes and Zombies. An odd combination, especially for a wedding, but it was a perfect one for Ellyn and Thomas. Their wedding at Southside Church of Christ in Ft Worth was one of our most fun weddings in 2012. Ellyn and her “Maids” had the perfect wedding morning – everyone was relaxed, had fun, and we had plenty of time for photos and acting silly.
Ellyn trained as a ballet dancer for many years and it shows in her graceful elegance – LOVE these bridals at Thistle Hill Mansion.
Now on to Thomas and his Men. Thomas’s brother, Dylan (best man), his dad and the Groomsmen wore superhero shirts under their tux shirts so we couldn’t resist getting a photo showing them off. As you will find out, Thomas’s father had multiple roles for their wedding – not only was he the father of the groom, he was also the officiate and the DJ! Thomas’s superhero of choice is pretty obvious – Batman!
As for the Zombie part of the day, Thomas’s father, Terry, is a big zombie fan and he made sure that zombies played a role in the ceremony. Terry placed a zombie, usually reserved for coming out of the ground for Halloween, under the first pew and we all waited anxiously for Thomas and Ellyn to spot them during the ceremony.
At the reception, Thomas & Ellyn had an amazing Cupcake Bar by Sweets… by Sonnie. There were 7 different flavors of cupcakes and 6 different icings and guests could choose their own custom combination. Our faves were the strawberry cupcake with strawberry icing (Tanya’s fave) and cinnamon with cream cheese icing (Bill’s fave). YUM!! To finish off the cupcake bar they had buckets of regular or chocolate milk to wash down the tasty treats. Thomas’s cousin ran a temporary tattoo station and the photobooth was a huge hit!
Their perfect day ended with a colorful balloon release and off went Thomas & Ellyn, happy married!
