i’m not even ready to be done with halloween and thanksgiving just passed me by. cripes! my clone better arrive before christmas.

getting back to halloween, or in this case hallowedding, i have to say, after posting jennifer and bryan’s spooky engagement session in balboa park, and their backwoods engagement session in san diego, we’ve been dying to share these wedding shots. we looked forward to their halloween theme wedding in San Diego all year, and it did not disappoint.

jennifer and bryan got ready at the rancho bernardo inn and then head to san rafael catholic church for the ceremony. jennifer, bryan, and their bridal party suited up in traditional wedding attire for the church ceremony. it was, by jennifer’s description, a solemn catholic ceremony at san rafael catholic church, but any solemness ended right there. upon exiting the church, jennifer, bryan, and their entire bridal party did a quick change into their super suits and revealed their secret identities as team awesome. they woke the dead and brought the party to life for the reception at the museum of man in balboa park. all guests in attendance showed up in costumes of their own for the halloween theme reception. it was crazy! i hadn’t seen that many cool costumes since the lion king on broadway. you can see some of the costumed madness by clicking this link or by scrolling to the bottom of this post for the slideshow.

jennifer and bryan, we can’t thank you enough. i know how much work you put into this and i’m sure i speak for everyone that was there when i say you did an amazing job… a completely over the top, friggin amazing job. when we tell people it’s ok to have fun on their wedding day, this is what we’re talking about. we love it! we love you! you are two of the coolest people on the planet and we’re so glad we got to share this experience with you. congratulations! you can rest now. oh wait…

team awesome at Halloween theme wedding in Balboa Park

this is such a rad group. jennifer and bryan had these costumes custom made for the entire bridal party. some of the finishing touches were done at the last minute, like that day kind of last minute. they came out looking… well… awesome!

i love it when a plan comes together.

watch for team awesome at comic-con 2011.

just in case guests forgot to wear a costume to the reception, jennifer and bryan had a whole costume table there, full of disguises.

justin and his awesome staff from authentic flavors catering were on hand and slingin a mean grease. they seriously make THE best food anywhere. literally everything they make is awesome.

i love hors d’oeuvres. they make me feel like a giant.

the toxic-tini and rotten apple that ebs (event beverage solutions) whipped up were delicious. people couldn’t keep their hands off them, or out of them.

i loved jennifer and bryan’s table cards. these were pretty cool, but each table was named after a bar from a movie or tv show.

how many receptions have you been to where there was a giant glowing dia de la muerta skull on one wall and horror movie scenes playing on another?

bryan, being a huge simpson’s fan, had to put moe’s tavern in the mix. he doesn’t know it, but kim says he put in ten forward for her. she love’s star trek.

  4. aubrie Jul 24th 09:02

    WOW! I found my way here from pinterest and these are just WOW. The superhero pics are freaking awesome and the details are phenomenal!

  5. Victoria Jul 24th 00:11

    What a gorgeous couple and wedding! So many wonderful ideas and a very unique spin of A halloween wedding if I do say so, myself!

    As far as that one table goes, it’s just a screwy font. Flinger’s is from the movie Office Space. Their equivalent to a ‘Chili’s’ I’d suspect. The L just looks like a J.

    Keep up the work and keep taking pics! These are just incredible!

  6. cambria Jul 23rd 16:11

    The getting ready portraits are amazing. She is stunning!

  7. amelia Jun 29th 12:55

    OH MY GAWD! I am crazy for this wedding! At first look, I didn’t see why it was a Halloween wedding, the getting ready and ceremony are just stunning. Then I scrolled to the portraits and was just all, “HOLY MACARONI (macaroni replaced actual inappropriate word ha!) the details and the photos of the bridal party in their costumes. WOW, just wow. Stunned by the awesomeness.
