Holy Matrimony Batman, Small Beach Town Meets the Ultimate Gotham Wedding!

Gotham is a dark, mysterious, and scary place. Although there is a lot of crime, there are also those DC Comics superheroes that make a difference for the betterment of the city. Enter Batman. Batman is well known to keep the streets clean of crooks. He is Gotham´s protector. But, who protects Batman? Enter Catwoman.

At first these two were rivals. Catwoman was a villain and was known as a thief that prowled the night while Batman is a superhero that prowls the night. These two have had their differences but their love for each other grew immensely after many bad and good encounters. They are connected by their similar tragic backgrounds and by their love for their city of Gotham. They are intertwined as Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle.

The Setting

They decided to get away from Gotham for their wedding and only invited close friends and family. A small beach town was perfect for them as long as it included a gothic church to marry in and a reception venue that resembled Bruce Wayne´s mansion since they wanted aspects of Gotham included in their special day. The ceremony took place in the evening as it is what Batman and Catwoman would do. They are night prowlers, after all!  

The reception venue was small but perfect for their intimate wedding.  Its many furniture pieces resembled the ones in Bruce´s mansion from the grand piano to the bookcase to the curtains and to the paintings on the wall.  When you stepped inside you felt like you were in his mansion and that is why Bruce and Selina chose this venue, Gatherings in Pacific Grove.  

The "First Look" photos took place on the water near the ceremony and reception sites and inside the reception venue itself.  Usually First Look means that the bride and groom see each other in their wedding attire before the ceremony but they changed things up!  They still wanted to keep their attire a surprise so they took photos in their usual Batman and Catwoman costumes.  The chemistry between these two was apparent as they took photos in front of the reception venue and near the beach.  

And who better to invite than their superhero and Gotham family.  The entire Justice League were among the guests in attendance and this included Clark Kent and Diana Prince.  Of course, Commissioner Jim Gordon and Bruce´s butler and father figure Alfred Pennyworth were in attendance as well.

The Music

Amy Hung Films created an amazing video for this unique inspired wedding.  The music “Apex" by Kevin Graham fits in perfectly.  It’s dark, dramatic, and mysterious yet romantic in a way that gives the audience a feeling of the intense love between Batman and Catwoman.
