Glinda the Good Witch Same-Sex Wedding Inspiration



Have you ever watched The Wizard of Oz and thought, you know, the Emerald City is great and all, but couldn’t it be pink instead? If so, welcome to the wedding of your dreams! Taking inspiration from everyone’s favorite bubble-traveling Oz resident, Glinda the Good Witch, this magical wedding is everything you need right now. And bonus, you don’t even have to take a tornado to get there!



This beautiful invitation suite was designed by Alexis Designs Things, as were all the paper goods. I just love all the little crown details. And of course, an Oz wedding wouldn’t be complete without the iconic yellow brick road!



One bride donned a traditional Glinda look with a gorgeous gown from Glimmerwood. The look was topped off with an ornate crown and starburst earrings (which were a subtle nod to the shape of Glinda’s magic wand).



The other bride wore a white jumpsuit and blazer set with a gold sequin top and these bejeweled Vince Camuto shoes.



Warning: If you thought these photos were giving you cuteness overload already, turn back now. Because we left out one little (fluffy) detail that we have to get to. Introducing: Penny Lane the Pomeranian, rocking her own custom pink ensemble and pearl collar for the occasion. Toto’s got nothing on this cutie!



We’ve also got to talk about this incredible, overflowing rose pink bouquet! Florally Ever After created all the gorgeous florals you see.



And what’s the next best thing to flying around in a bubble? Well, lots and lots of balloons from the incredible Balloonzilla, of course! How beautiful is this ceremony backdrop inside the historic Maxwell House?! And yes, the walls are pink!



Doesn’t this pink veil with gold lace from Julie Harris Designs work so beautifully with this dress? They were meant to be!



Okay guys, I cannot stop gushing about how beautifully this came together! Rock n’ Willow Events’ styling and planning on this was killer! The Maxwell House has tables and chairs already available for events, and with a few extra tabletop details from La Piñata Party Rentals, it was a sparkly paradise. The theme extended into pink cocktails from LA Speakeasy and custom candle favors from Gourmet Wedding Gifts (in scents like ‘Troubles Melt Like Lemon Drops’ and ‘Poppy Field Dreams’).



How delightful are these cocktails garnished with real flowers, rock candy, and cotton candy! (PS. Gourmet Wedding Gifts customized these ‘hers and hers’ champagne flutes.)



This gorgeous work of art cake was created by the incredible Sweet Novelette. I’m constantly blown away by the edible sculptures she creates!



What better way to welcome guests than with personalized mini champagne bottles and the world’s yummiest stroopwafel cookies with custom quotes. (Again, from Gourmet Wedding Gifts!)



This photo (below) may be one of my favorites of any I’ve ever taken. The colors, the love, and the absolutely scandalized look on Penny Lane’s face really just make it perfect!



Another bonus about The Maxwell House, besides it being stunning: When not hosting events, it’s home to The Western Justice Center, an nonprofit that supports marginalized groups and provides anti-bullying education.



If you haven’t gotten enough sparkly goodness (and I know I haven’t!), check out this GORGEOUS video of the day from Milestones of Love!
