BilliJo and Chasidie rocked their wedding theme to the fullest: a happily ever after for Maleficent and the Evil Queen, surrounded by other villians of all types, including a Darth Vader officiant! They were influenced by he TV show Once Upon A Time and kept it whimsical AND classy. This villians in love wedding locked our hearts in a box forever.
Here’s the scoop from the brides themselves…
Our vision was Villains getting their happily ever after, heavily inspired by the TV show Once Upon A Time. We wanted it to be like a dark enchanted forest. Our colors were a royal purple, black, midnight blue, and silver.
We didn’t want it to be too fairy tale, so we allowed our wedding party to dress as any villain they wanted, from any genre. I think that made it much more fun and exciting. Also, letting guests know they could dress up added another element of fun. Seeing Subzero behead Darth Vader was very fun.
Two parts of the day stand out as our favorites. One was the ceremony. We each feel very lucky to have married our best friend and to have been married by Chasidie’s mother. Also it was Chasidie’s childhood dream to be married outside at her parent’s house and her dream came true.
