Couple to Tie the Knot in Harry Potter Themed Wedding Under Eclipse!

A couple in Nashville, Tennessee will be getting married beneath the solar eclipse today in a Harry Potter themed ceremony. 


Thomas Brandt and Rachel Sloan will wed at Cannonsburgh Village in Murfreesboro, as the moon passes between the sun and the earth. 


Brandt and Sloan are both huge Potterheads, with Brandt proposing to Sloan at Harry Potter World at Universal Studios in Florida in January.

When they realized an eclipse was coming, the idea seemed obvious.


Sloan explained that Brandt is “very science-oriented.  I am more spiritual and so it’s a good day that’s meaningful for both of us”


“I got a custom Quidditch ring made for her and I proposed to her in front of Hogwarts,” Brandt said. “You know that’s kind of where the theme came from, perfect theme, I think of her when I think of Harry Potter.”


The couple sent out special Harry Potter invitations and Sloan’s bouquet is covered in illustrations of spells from J.K. Rowling’s bestselling novels. 


Congratulations to the happy couple!
