This Couple's American Horror Story Wedding Was Scary Good
Ryan Murphy would be so proud.
Michael Scola and Jordan Rodarte just had the wedding of any American Horror Story lover's dreams. The two got married on October 29 (over Halloween weekend, naturally) at the Oviatt Penthouse in Downtown L.A.—where the exterior shots of the Hotel Cortez from the Hotel season were filmed.
The guys met back in February 2010 while working at the new W Hollywood. After going from coworkers to friends and then to boyfriends, their first date was to a Corinne Bailey Rae concert. Fast-forward to August 2015 when, while on vacation in Miami, Michael popped the question and a shocked Jordan said "yes" immediately.
When putting this AHS-themed day together, Michael and Jordan reached out to Naomi Grossman—who played Pepper in the Asylum and Freak Show seasons—to see if she could attend. While she couldn't confirm early on, a week before the wedding she officially RSVPed.
Rodarte tells InStyle that the guests "f—king loved it" when an actual AHS castmember showed up. Grossman "said a sweet message to us referencing her character Pepper's own wedding on Freak Show and she delivered our rings."
The couple's officiant was Nadya Ginsburg, who has a YouTube channel dedicated to her Madonna impersonation called Madonnalogues, and Rodarte said she "killed it all night with one-liners centered around the feud between the queen of pop and new AHS star Lady Gaga."
This duo even made a fake trailer for the show for their big day, filmed by Stevie Teran:
Other touches were using the show's unique font on their invites (and all over their stunning wedding site), a coffin-shaped card/gift box, AHS-themed masks for the photo booth, framed classic horror movie characters at each table, a 1920s dresscode, and an all-out Art Deco cake.
Congrats the the lovely couple—and may they never live in a Murder House.
