What a coincidence! It’s the first week of our Wedding FilmFest on The Little Black Book Blog, and lo and behold we just happen to have a wedding from this past summer that took place at a Movie Theatre! Dayna and Ryan’s vintage movie inspired wedding at The Carlisle Movie Theatre to be precise!  They were engaged for a short six months and managed to pull off a fun-filled and charming wedding at the Carlisle Movie Theatre in Pennsylvania …

Here’s a little bit of their story … Ryan and I met through a series of events at the church we both attend. After a strategically planned first date ~ in case it didn’t go well ~ we saw each other almost every single day after that! Throughout our dating relationship, Ryan was always very creative. On January 22, Ryan wrote a series of notes that took me on a trail of surprises beginning with a massage at a spa, flowers, and a stop at my favorite coffee place. The trail ended in Inner Harbor Baltimore where we went to dinner and Ryan read his final note which ended with his proposal! A ‘long’ six months later we got married at the Carlisle Theatre which was absolutely perfect from head to toe. Every detail was in place by JDK and Sarah’s Floral design,and Hales Studio was there to perfectly capture the excitement of our wedding day.

And from Rebecca at Hales Studio … I just loved Dayna and Ryan’s vintage movie themed wedding! They both love movies, so what better way to celebrate than to have their wedding in a vintage 1930′s theatre? And to make their day even more special, Dayna and Ryan had the honor of being the first wedding ever at this landmark nestled in the center of downtown Carlisle, PA. There were a lot of DIY details including custom movie posters that they hung in the lobby that were made to look like coming attractions. The table markers were Oscar statues bearing the names of classics movies the couple loves and also a handful of plays that Dayna had been in while growing up. Even the wedding “cake” was baked by Dayna’s Dad, but instead of a traditional cake he made a giant 35 pound apple pie!

What a terrific celebration! Our thanks to Hales Studio and Weddings by JDK for sharing! See the whole gallery here!
