George and Jana’s Enchanted Wedding
When I met with Jana and George for their first consultation, Jana said that she was a little concerned about meeting wedding professionals and touring venues. You see, Jana is an amazingly friendly, beautiful and bubbly woman with goth/punk sensibilities and style, awesome tats and bright blue hair. Definitely not what you would call your "traditional bride”, I adored Jana and George immediately!! I assured her, she came to the right place with Diverse Diva since I specialize in offbeat and non-traditional couples. I also assured them that we would find the perfect vendors and venue for them. After talking for a while I learned that they envisioned an urban wedding. They loved the idea of goth elements and definitely wanted to go off the beaten path. They also wanted to weave personal elements, and still wanted a romantic feel with a punk/goth edge. I immediately reached out to Janice from Pierpont Place. If Pierpont was available on their date, I knew it was the perfect fit for Jana and George! I was right!! And it WAS available! As we spent nearly a year planning, the vision of their special day became clearer with each planning meeting. After scouring Pinterest for ideas and partnering with Janice and her team, we decided on a spooky, enchanted forest feel for the design and decor. With the additional of gorgeous blue up lights, an intricate goth-style wedding cake from Salt Cake City, a custom made smoky black, blue and white wedding dress (custom design and creation by Haunted Head Fashion), super fun transportation ideas such as bike taxis and a classic vintage car for the first look and sendoff and the incredible A-team of vendors, this wedding was epic in scope and flawless in execution.
