An Earthy Lord of the Rings Inspired Wedding at the Warner Theatre in Erie, Pennsylvania
Felicia Castorina (23) and Joseph Spade (24) met through mutual friends in high school and have been together ever since. The two consider themselves to be far from a traditional couple which made their attire and decor all the more exciting. The groom, fully dressed in a White Ranger Power Rangers suit for the ceremony, was only the first look in the Lord of the Rings themed reception. An earthy palette of browns, oranges and greens filled the historic Warner Theatre with pops of fun, themed props. Guests were handed origami fortune tellers as the program while they watched bridesmaids walk down the aisle holding dark, gothic lanterns. As the area was transitioned into the reception, the tables were set with centrepieces made of branches and moss, brightened with orange flare the couple found at a craft store. The bouquets polished off the 'No Flowers' look, made entirely of comic book origami flowers. Once the reception began, guests dug in to a round of passed appetisers followed by a decadent meal of baked chicken and eggplant ratatouille. Their side theme of Lord of the Rings could be seen in the Shire inspired cake and cupcakes. Felicia and Joseph were able to design their wedding in a way that perfectly reflected their fun and quirky interests while creating an air of class and elegance.
