Harry Potter Wedding at the Horticulture Building

Christina & Dom’s Harry Potter Wedding! When I first learned I was going to be part of this I actually googled “harry potter wedding” just to see if anything would come up…and….it’s a thing. And it was FABULOUS!

For the reception, Bourbon & Bloom beautifully transformed the Horticulture Building into the Great Hall at Hogwarts, with long tables with corresponding colours for each house, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Gryffindor.

This wedding included so many wonderful details like the Harry Potter font used for all the printed materials from seating charts, place cards, and bar menus. Individual “Owl Posts” at each place setting. A candy table that included chocolate frogs and Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans. There was even a sorting hat and a golden snitch on top of the cake.
