Ghostbusters, the science of love, and a giant pumpkin cake… the story of Tiffany and Ed’s wedding

I tried about 10 different titles for this blog before I finally settled on one.  Tiffany and Ed’s wedding had so many interesting things about it that I had way too many creative options for this title!

What I mean to say is that the details at Tiffany and Ed’s wedding RULED!

(Notice their wedding date on the back of her shoes!).

Or they rocked, killed it, were sick… insert whatever random phrase you use to describe things as “the best” and you will know what Tiffany and Ed’s wedding looked like.

Leading up to the wedding we were hearing bits and pieces about this wedding that we didn’t quite know how to put together.  Things like, “ribbons for the guests to wave”, “unity candy” (I thought Scottie had meant to write candle on the notes sheet… but candy was actually correct), and “chemistry beakers for toasts” were all thrown and out there and left us scratching our heads.

Basically, when we arrived at the Arizona Science Center on the day before Halloween with our cameras in hand, ready to shoot Tiffany and Ed’s wedding we had no idea what we were about to walk into…

…and what we found, took our breath away.

Their wedding had a theme that was a cross between science and Halloween, and somehow Tiffany and Ed found a way to make Halloween elegant and science romantic!

If Martha Stewart had walked into this wedding, she would have realized that the quality of this work makes all of her work look like a complete failure and she would have run away crying! Yes, that’s how good all of the decor, details, and handmade items at this wedding were!

As we wandered between the ceremony and reception site (passing guests along the way who were happily learning about gravity and relativity in the science center), we were awestruck at how beautiful and completely unique everything was!!

There were the science details such as each table being named after scientists both real and fake (that’s where I got the ghostbusters part of the title)…

…the beakers they drank their champagne out of that said “Mr.” and “Mrs.”, and of course all the things that naturally sat around the science center like little science facts on the wall behind their head table!

In fact, science was such a major part of their wedding that it was the major topic of their ceremony.  Their officiant gave a very poetic and elegant talk -that was simultaneously very intellectual and factual- all about string theory and how the universe brought Tiffany and Ed together.

I am still impressed that she was able to make science sound romantic… but she really did explain the science of love very beautifully!

She adjusted a quote from Casablanca to introduce string theory saying, “out of all the candy stores in all the towns, in all the world, he walks into mine” (they met at Fuzziwig’s candy store.. hence the unity candy that they poured together during the ceremony and the nerds/smarties favors they had for all the guests at the tables).

Aside from having their wedding in the “hallowed house of science” (as Ed put it)…

…there was another thing that was very important to Tiffany and Ed that was well represented at this wedding… Halloween!

(Check out her orange bling!).

The elegant touch of the Halloween theme was brought in through the avenue of “fall”.  Fall leaves and colors coated everything, with big leaves and little pumpkins added into the beautiful bouquets of orange and red, and large pumpkins with classy decorations on them as the centerpieces.

The black chairs, the white pumpkins with “Mr.” and “Mrs.” painted on them and most of all – the unbelievable pumpkin cake…

(Yes, that is a REAL cake!  I had some myself just to make sure! And of course, it was pumpkin flavored).

…made this wedding not only unique, but also very stunning!  One of my favorite details were the little balls with fall leaves and candles inside that looked like they were hanging down from the sky… SO cool!

I’m totally stealing that idea for my next party!

It’s OK though because they “borrowed” the idea we used at the bridal show of having photos on a chalkboard wall with frames drawn around them!  We were honored that they liked our idea so much and we felt like we got to put a little piece of Radiant into their wedding decor!

I seriously could go on and on about the details here.  Every little nook and cranny was covered with time and thought that represented Tiffany and Ed’s personalities oh so well! You will just have to check out the rest of the photos to see more!

We did venture out of the Science Center some to explore the area around the little historic district that we were in.

Tiffany and Ed did their reveal moment outside of one of the old houses (that they made us give a “donation” to in order to take pictures in front of!!)…

… and then we hung around the area to get some pics of the entire bridal party!

(Like our Facebook page to tag yourself in some of these photos!).

Check out their shoes… just another great detail that Tiffany dreamed up!!

Tiffany and Ed, your wedding was definitely freaking cool and we loved every part about it!

The ceremony, the decorations, the people, and the dancing (something I haven’t even mentioned yet but was amazing as well)  was all wonderful!  I hope you guys had as much fun as you seemed to be! We are so glad you booked your fall themed Unique Session in Sedona (photos from it coming soon!) because we are so happy to have more than one opportunity to work with the two of you!
