What better choice for a Harry Potter-themed wedding program for a wizard and a witch than The Daily Prophet! Sadly, the muggles couldn’t see the picture moving…
The wizarding community knew what they were seeing on the backside of the program, and the muggles were blissfully unaware.
Of course those are self-writing quills! The guest book was fantastic, if you know what I mean…
With its high gray ceiling, tall arched leaded-glass windows, original iron hanging chandeliers, and gothic details, the Great Hall at Chase Court in Baltimore pays more than a passing resemblance to the Great Hall at Hogwarts!
The three flower girls scattered bits of pages from the books, sending the magic of Happy Potter before the bride.
The bride and her attendants carried lanterns.
The bride and groom each read their hand-written vows, representing the wit and wisdom of her house (Ravenclaw) and the cunning and ambition of his (Slytherin).
And finally…mischief managed!
There were lots of delightful little thematic details, and many, many candles!
The windowsills in the Great Hall were decked out with books, candles, and paper flowers made from the pages of (what else!) Harry Potter books.
There was a selfie station in the Library with fun on-theme props, and a bar stocked with Butterbeer as well as muggle libations for the budding Arthur Weasleys to explore.
