Christine and Andrew met in a Harry Potter chat room, so when they finally decided to get married they just had to keep the HP spirit alive.What better way to do so than to throw a Harry Potter-themed wedding?

Check out these pictures from the Bay Area’s Geoff Photographers of the happy couple’s big day. We wonder — were the groom’s glasses worn for added for effect? (If so, where’s the scar?!)

Evidently they are not the only couple with this magic idea. Check out Bridal Guide to see another couple who threw their wedding in Hogwarts fashion.
