I, like any other fun-loving person out there, am always glad to take part in a good theme party. I think people who throw themed weddings are so bold, and I love their unique and confident style. That being said, confidence alone isn’t enough for a party theme to be successful. So, I’d like your opinion on this detailed, Ghostbusters (1984) themed wedding that took place in New York City over the weekend.

Not just New York City, but the Ghostbusters Headquarters, of course! The real and still functioning NYC firehouse’s exterior was used as the Ghostbuster’s headquarters in the cult classic film. It draws tons of tourists who want to see it in person. Not only did this couple make sure to book an authentic venue, but they chose to get married on June 8 – AKA National Ghostbusters Day! The movie debuted on June 8, 1984.

So…wow. I’m already impressed with this couple’s dedication, attention to detail, and shared love of such a specific movie. But the intensity doesn’t stop there. Not only are their guests totally into it, but their costumes and props are on point. That’s right, I said props. Many of them are sporting proton packs on their backs and something called a Neutrona Wand…to suck the ghosts in with.

The Groom walks down with perhaps the biggest proton pack and a very macho wand gun, in full Ghostbuster uniform. The crowd cheers at his entrance and he makes his way to the Ghostbuster officiant, also in fully themed attire. I’m not sure why but there’s a Santa Ghostbuster making a joke about the Ghost of Christmas Past. Then it’s time for the Bride!

I half thought she’d be wearing a white Ghostbuster jumpsuit, but that would ruin the authenticity. Flowers in hand and space buns on her head she walks down the aisle…to none other than the Ghostbusters theme song. Brilliant use of the soundtrack. Their spirits are officially united outside the fire house and the crowd cheers. The video ends with the couple posing in front of the white Ectomobile. He adorably switches the surname on her uniform to reflect their new married status.

See it all here and tell me what you think! Can you notice the details I didn’t even mention?

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
