When my friends Carina and Ezra told me they wanted me to photography their wedding, I was thrilled. Then they told me they were going to get married during a live production of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” at the same theater where they first met. Then I was excited beyond imagining! Simply shivering with anticipation…………………..
The shadow cast was made up of various friends, all of whom did a spectacular job.
The Rialto was an incredible space. Built in 1942, this fine-arts theater was the perfect place for a Rocky Horror Wedding. They have been performing live shows of the Rocky Horror Picture Show nearly every week for decades! Carina and Ezra actually met at one! How romantic is that?!
Of course when two theater folks get married, there are details galore, including wedding-themed Rocky Horror prop bags!
Carina and Ezra played Columbia and Rif-Raff respectively. Just after the opening wedding scene, they paused the film, changed wardrobe, and had their own beautiful ceremony. Carina and Ezra’s love for each other is always a wonderful thing to behold, and their ceremony was no different. It is such an absolute pleasure to witness two people join together in such a tender and honest way.
After a short and sweet ceremony, it was back to the show! I have so many great photos from the performance, so here’s a few of my favorites:
Congratulations, Carina and Ezra! Here’s to many happy and crazy years!
