Vintage Superhero-Themed Wedding Looks Like a Blast
A shared feeling of tremendous victory over a taxing 18-month separation while they pursued their career goals became the inspiration for the superhero-themed wedding of Megan Harrod and Thomas Suszynski. Embodying the themes and aesthetics loved by them both, the never-say-die idiom of superheroes influenced everything about the wedding, which was captured in a series of lovely portraits and published on the bride's Etsy blog. You can check some of them out below.
The idea came to Megan and Thomas in a kitschy retro diner that invoked the classic Marvel Comics of their childhoods, and the couple was off designing their own superhero wedding.
S-U-P-E-R-H-E-R-O-E-S. Like the larger-than-life-muscles-galore figures who graced the pages of our Marvel comic books when we were kids. They conquered the world and the many challenges life threw in their direction; much like Tom and me. An ocean and 4,000 miles separated us for 18 months as I pursued my dream to live and work overseas in Prague, Czech Republic and Tom continued to work on his dream as an MD/PhD student tracking towards a career in transplant surgery in Minneapolis. Worlds apart, but connected by the fervor of young lovers sharing hundreds of love letters, we made a commitment to conquer the world as one. So as we began to plan our wedding, the theme happened upon us naturally.
From the look of things, this was a party we're sorry we missed. Belated super-congratulations to the happy couple from all of us at ComicsAlliance!
