It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a…. wedding! Themed weddings always provide cute and quirky décor details that make them uniquely memorable. Alex and Tiffany did an incredibly job with their super hero themed wedding at Montage. Playing on their love of Marvel comics, every piece of décor from the place cards to the centerpieces and even the cake had subtle and not-so-subtle hints of their love for comics.
Tiffany and Alex had a great wedding day timeline that allowed them to spend as much time as possible with their guests instead of having to sneak away during cocktail hour for photos. Tiffany, Adam and their attendants arrived to Montage early in the afternoon, dressed and ready for photos. The bride and groom hid from one another so they could share a first look before the ceremony. Joined by their wedding party, they took photos of their entire bridal party, and with one another, before finally stepping in for formal family photos before the ceremony. Choosing to have a first look and complete bridal party photos before the ceremony gives couples the opportunity to go to cocktail hour and mingle with their guests. It frees up time later in the evening for dancing instead of hopping from table to table to thank and greet everyone at the reception.

Adam and Tiffany exchanged vows in our Ceremony Gardens surrounded by friends and family. Programs for the ceremony featured comic book pages, giving guests their first glimpse into their themed wedding. Hors d’oeuvres and beverage were available for guests during cocktail hour in the Champagne and Chardonnay rooms. Guests picked up their place cards at this time. Tiffany and Adam put such thought into their décor choices. In place of a typical tent card for a place card, the couple used miniature comic book figures with tags to tell each guest their seating assignments. Each figurine matched a table that was identified with an action hero’s playing card.
At 7:20pm, guests were called to dinner and entered the Cabernet room. In the middle of the room, Tiffany and Adam’s cake rested on a small cocktail table at the center of the dance floor. Handmade centerpieces continued to pay tribute to their comic book theme. A three-course plated meal was served before dancing began. Later in the evening, a late-night snack station was set for those guests that worked up an appetite dancing. The station featured hamburger slides and portabello sliders with toppings and seasoned steak fries
