If you're obessed with Hamilton: An American Musical and planning a wedding, you might be secretly (or not so secretly) considering incorporating a few Hamilton-themed wedding ideas into your big day. Well, a group of Florida-based wedding vendors with Green Pearl Photography at the helm decided to take things a step further, creating a gorgeous Hamilton-themed wedding styled shoot that recreates the nuptials of Eliza Schuyler and Alexander Hamilton. Like the musical, this shoot effortlessly mixes 18th century history with modern-day style in such a genius and inspiring way. Of course, when we saw these photos we were not about to throw our shot at sharing them (hope you love those Hamilton puns—you're about to read a lot of 'em!).
We're Helpless For These Hamilton-Themed Wedding Ideas
Alexander Hamilton was one of the most prolific writers in American history—the man is non-stop! So of course, the invitations and stationery for this Hamilton-themed wedding was of utmost importance. Starting with the couple's beautiful handwritten vows, the paper suite features a colonial handwritten-style watercolor calligraphy and is adorned with a seal similar to what would have been used in the 18th century.
The couple's simple gold wedding bands are inscribed with their names.
"I look into your eyes and the sky's the limit..."
Eliza was certainly surrounded by her loving Schuyler sisters on her wedding day. The bridesmaids carried bouquets created by Flowers by Lesley, which were inspired by 18th century engravings and artwork. The arrangements featured majestic purples and blues paired with natural greenery and tied with gorgeous satin ribbon.
"Peggy confides in me..."
"...Angelica tried to take a bite of me."
Angelica's gift to the couple? A copy of Common Sense by Thomas Paine, of course.
Hamilton gifted his groomsmen, George Washington and John Laurens, tie clips engraved with the words "Right Hand Man."
The wedding party poses in front of the shoot's venue, Luxmore Grande Estate, which was chosen for its historical details and charm. The venue is reminiscent of Schuyler Mansion, where Alexander and Eliza were married.
In lieu of escort cards, a scroll-style seating chart displays the table assignments (be sure to look closely at the guests' names!).
The reception tablescapes have an Old World feel that resembles a classic painting. The centerpieces feature flowers in rich hues paired with blue candles, luxurious velvet table runners, and vintage blue goblets.
The guests of honor sat in chairs decorated with scroll-style signage featuring quotes from the musical.
Even the spoons feature Hamilton quotes!
The wedding favors for this Hamilton-themed wedding included matchboxes with the couple's images on them. The matchboxes were inspired by Eliza's burning of Hamilton's letters later on in their marriage.
"A toast to the groom! To the bride...to your union...and the hope that you'll provide. May you always...be satisfied!"
