A Superhero Themed, Waterside Wedding at Celebrations at the Bay in Pasadena, Maryland
Jenn Kim (33 and an attorney) was planning on attending the New York Comic Convention with a friend, but he bailed and gave his ticket to Victor Gaur (31 and a physician). As luck would have it, Jenn and Vic spent the whole day at the convention bonding over their shared superhero fandom. Three years later, Vic proposed to Jenn on the weekend of the New York Comic Convention, when they were both dressed in costumes from their favorite comic book, CHEW. The couple had a beautiful waterside ceremony at Celebrations at the Bay in Pasadena, Maryland. The following reception took place in an airy hall with large windows facing the Chesapeake Bay. Tables were named after superhero characters, and guests found their seats by referring to framed escort cards with superhero code names on them. Flower arrangements at this fun celebration were bright and colorful with green chrysanthemums, burnt orange calla lilies and coral orchids. To match with the theme, the groomsmen wore superhero themed socks and cufflinks with their gray suits. Jenn says that the best part of planning her wedding was being able to make decisions with Vic and learn more about him in the process. Her one piece of advice for future brides is to laugh and enjoy the ride. "Everyone is there because they love you and they are rooting for you. It's the best feeling ever."
