Mel and Ben got married at The Fig House on 3.14, aka Pi Day! It also happened to be March 14, 2020, which meant that this was the last wedding prior to the nationwide pandemic shutdown. These two encountered every obstacle from dozens of last minute cancellations, sporadic heavy rain, vendor shifts, and wardrobe emergencies, but from their first look on the day was filled with nothing but immense joy. Mel and Ben love watching TV together and included a bunch of fun television references in their wedding. Mel’s cape sleeve wedding gown was inspired by Daenerys Targaryen of Game of Thrones, and Ben’s bright blue suit was inspired by a contestant from Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelor. Scroll down for more photos from this colorful day – and you can also see Mel & Ben’s TV inspired wedding featured on The Knot!
It was pouring rain when I arrived at Fig House, but thankfully their indoor space is stunning!
Mel and Ben’s Save the Date featured a nod to their TV theme early on, with Ben wearing a t-shirt for the show Lost and Mel wearing a Full House Jesse and the Rippers shirt.
Rebel & Rogue Floral Couture used tropical blooms in all of the floral design!
Mel’s colorful engagement ring is so unique!
Cue the first look!
It stopped raining outside long enough for us to snag some portraits with The Fig House’s iconic teal wall and geometric gate!
The rain started up again briefly, so it was back inside for some wedding party portraits!
Thankfully the weather held off for the rest of the day! We were able to take group shots outside with Ben’s family.
Mel and Ben’s officiant dressed as Joey at Monica and Chandler’s wedding on Friends!
Christine, Mel and Ben’s wedding planner, had cocktails in hand for them the minute they exited the ceremony! My kind of people!
The cocktail hour was filled with TV quotes in frames.
Another Friends reference with this neon sign!
A friend of Mel and Ben’s created custom illustrations of the two of them in all of their favorite TV shows! SO cute and creative!!
Time to party!
Mel and her dad had the best moves!!
Since it was March 14th, it was only fitting that they have pie on Pi Day!
Congratulations Mel and Ben!!
