A Wedding With a Superman Theme

My DIL’s brother got married this weekend and they had asked me to do the photography. This was a wedding on a budget and this was my gift to them.

I took over 350 pictures ( DO NOT WORRY / THEY ARE NOT ALL IN THIS POST :)

It was held at a local township community center and they were so creative. The wedding had a Superman Theme….from the cake to a table full of comic books for the children to explore to the tiniest detail. See the Superman on her nail polish? :)

The bride was in white, the bridesmaids in blue, and the guys were in black tuxedos with red vests.

My son and DIL….

After the ceremony, while we were outdoors taking photos of the bridal party, guests inside were enjoying a long table filled with hors d’oeuvres.

Once we came back in, my grandson was still at it…

The bride and groom have a little daughter…I have shown her on here before; little Gracie is just adorable.   And of course her bow is a Superman one!

The bouquets were made of comic pages…I was just amazed at all of the detail that this couple pulled off.

Even though everyone was dressed formally, the bride and groom and little Gracie had Superman shoes; everyone else wore red …

At the community center there was a lovely area outdoors for group shots. I don’t want to violate that huge wedding party’s privacy so I will just end this with a few immediate family shots :)

My middle son and my DIL’s twin’s husband…this was prior to the ceremony.

And the bride and Superman revealed!

I have been to some fancy expensive weddings and some do-it-yourself weddings ( we did one )  and all the weddings in between, but I must say that this was a lot of fun and oftentimes hilarious! :)

AND they were blessed. We have had rain Every Single Day for 5-7 days. This was the first day with no rain.

I don’t want to take another photograph for a good month now :)

    what a cute wedding! love the flower bouquets how original – they should have had a wedding to always remember and can say it was a bit different from everyone else’s.

  2. What a fun theme–that everyone could enjoy and be a part of! The bouquets are gorgeous.

    What a crazy fun wedding. This pic with his shirt opened and the “S” peeking out is the best. Send that to a magazine!!

    Only YOU could so adequately capture the fun!
    My all time fave – out of many, many sweet, tender, funny and mischievous pics of Brent you’ve posted – is THIS ONE, full of impish-ness and freckles and olives! A real keeper! Imagine an olive company showing it in their ads – “Five Reasons Why You Will Love Our Olives! – no wait! SIX of them!”

    How fun! The took the theme into so many parts of the wedding. What did they serve for refreshments?

    • debralynnpugh says:

      OH my goodness Robin they had veggie trays and fruit salads and a make-your-own S’mores bars and more, almost all of which was gone when we came back in from taking group pictures. The main meal was rolls, veggie trays, salads, chicken in gravy, stuffing, rigatoni, meatballs, green beans, new potatoes…tons of food and a full bar. I had a Jack D and Coke but only one..can’t have the photographer getting drunk, ha ha! :)

    What a creative and fun theme. Your photos are wonderful. You’ve captured spirit of the wedding.

  10. I’ve never understood people going into debt for a wedding. Here was a perfect example of a beautiful, wonderful day all courtesy of some creative folks. Photos are wonderful. You did it again. :-)

  11. Great photos, Debra! I love weddings to be a joyous time. My SIL, a comic connoisseur, would have loved this!!

  12. You did great with the photos! Someone sure likes tattoos!

      Oh you are right about the Tattoo generation, Brenda! LOL! In our day if we had extra money or someone gifted us, we’d go for some jewelry / the younger generation spends it all on tats

  13. That was a crazy fun wedding..they asked the right person to take the photos. You did so good! Great shots but then I didn’t doubt you!

    I love creative weddings…this one was so cool! Just out of curiosity, why the Superman theme…is the bride or groom a huge fan? You did a great job with the photos!

    • debralynnpugh says:

      Melanie the groom is a fan and given all of the kids in the family it just seemed a fun thing to do, I guess :)
