No shame, I’m a total Potterhead. A tweet I recently saw from my husband “If my wife isn’t asleep on the couch with Harry Potter playing when I come home at night, I’ll know she’s an imposter”.
So, I am ALL about this magical, DIY-filled Harry-inspired wedding – we adore when brides & grooms follow their hearts and plan a day that’s totally them, especially when it means bucking or mixing traditions. Monica & Mikhail managed to do just that, mixing loads of decor & details one might find at Hogwarts, modern moody florals, and even throwing in some Filipino cultural customs!
But not everything was ‘explicitly Harry Potter’. The couple & their planning team made efforts to give their wedding day a ‘magical feel’ rather totally on-the-nose theme-y. One example is the triangular ceremony altar, with angles that feel similar to much of the Harry-inspired imagery but could easily be a gorgeous altar for any geometric or woodsy bride & groom.
