The Arts and Entertainment Magazine and THE EERIE DIGEST was invited to an LA wedding this month by his friends Meredith Molinari and Aaron Clute. This was a fabulous wedding following the uniqueness that only Los Angeles can do. It was a ‘Halloween Wedding Costume Ball’ thrown at LA’s fantastic Cicada Club on South Olive Street in downtown Los Angeles.
It was a great setting and everyone showed up in costumes ranging from horror garb to roaring 20’s showgirls. The groom and groomsmen wore attire reminiscent of the Victorian era, and the bride and bridesmaids matched with Victorian showgirl dress. There were the Pirates of the Caribbean on hand, a Hugh Hefner and Playgirl look-alike, even one of the Blues Brothers was on hand. Our publisher and his wife appeared as a Scottish Laird and Victorian Lady that would fit right in with one of ‘The Royals’ weddings.
The wedding ceremony kicked things off and was performed by the ‘priest’ in black robe and hood. Even the photographers ( dressed in early thirties garb) and the bartender donned a monk’s robe. Background music in Halloween fashion punctuated the air and the party lasted all night with free drinks and a great time. A special meal that included Crepes were served after the ceremony.
Miss Molinari is a model and a hostess for Playboy TV, and Aaron is a Medical Specialist. They are also the closest of friends. Meredith’s family and friends flew in from the East Coast to attend and enjoyed LA’s remarkable weather ( as opposed to Hurricane Sandy raging from where their flights originated from). After the wedding the bride and groom left for the Caribbean for their well deserved honeymoon.
It was a good time for all and I would have not missed it for anything !
