Steve and I met with Sarah 1 year ago and as soon as she said they were going to have a DIY Harry Potter Wedding, I knew we would love to be a part of their wedding day! Andrew even proposed to Sarah at Universal’s Harry Potter theme park! I love Harry Potter, those books introduced me to the fantasy genre and taught me to love reading. We were super excited when Andrew & Sarah decided to book us to photograph their wedding day!
I first met up with both Andrew & Sarah when we did their downtown Knoxville engagement session. It was a ton of fun and this fun and quirky couple were so sweet together!
Sarah put in a ton of work to make her wedding beautiful! The bouquets and boutonnieres were my favorite detail from their wedding. Sarah made them out of pages from each person’s favorite Harry Potter book! This DIY Harry Potter Wedding was perfect! They had Headwig, the Sorting Hat, the golden snitch, Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans, and a beautiful Deathly Hallows cake topper. You have to scroll down and see all the iconic decorations! And check out the bridesmaids socks.
Everyone was keeping an eye on the weather because it was supposed to rain all day. The rain stopped just in time for the first look and ceremony! It was amazing. It did start raining again during the reception, so we snuck out with Andrew & Sarah with some umbrellas and did sweet bride and groom portraits with them snuggled up together under the umbrella.
The reception was a blast with everyone dancing and enjoying themselves. To send off the newlyweds, they did a sparkler exit. It was like everyone had a wand and had said “Lumos!”
