Twilight Wedding

Let's cover the obvious: I'm not getting married, I'm not engaged, I'm not _____ (fill in the blank with whatever).

I just happened to have one of those 'just woke up in the middle of the night' moments, where I'm having a nightmare because my dog is digging her deadly talons into my back.

It's scientifically proven that in the first few moments when you wake up and your conscious mind hasn't kicked in, you have moments of clarity (read: truth). I get the oddest thoughts and most remarkable solutions during these times.

All that aside, this church I studied about in a college architecture class popped into my head. I made the connection between that church and Twilight about a year ago, but just never shared it with you. I wanted to tweet it, but Twitter is about brevity and I'm long-winded. Why share this you ask? See diagram below:
This church is a glass church in the middle of the forest in Arkansas. And seeing as Bella and Edward have a running theme of meeting in the forest, breaking up in the forest, doing the hokey pokey and turning themselves around in the forest, wouldn't this be the perfect place for them to be wed? Aside from my childish imagination, it's a stunningly beautiful church and architecturally impressive. It's the Thorncrown Chapel and I just can't choose ONE picture to share because you really have to see every angle, at all hours of the day, through all the seasons of the year, so visit the site and view the photo gallery here: Thorncrown Chapel

And if you want to imagine you and Robert Pattinson standing at the altar while you flip through the pictures, I won't judge. Of course, I didn't do that, but I'm team Jacob...woof!


  1. now with this post I felt really left out, since I am the one of the few ppl who did not watch twilight yet !! maybe I should .loved your diagram Nur xoxo

  2. i'm reading breaking dawn for the first time and i need to finish it before the movie comes out. i have some time. i'm team jacob, also!

  3. Nur-I'm not sure if you crack me up or scare me, but either way, I love this idea! And, frankly, I'm Team Jacob as well. Let's see, spend eternity with a pasty white, skinny guy or a dark, sexy, very buff guy who loves dogs? Not much of a choice, is it?

  4. Okay. Where do I start. I may edit this depending on character count. Church. GORGEOUS. Totally the perfect venue for Cullen wedding except they chose a private location. Probably because they didn't know about this and perhaps other reasons. Now, can I say how SHOCKED I am that you would have a blog post basically dedicated to Twilight? Sure, the post itself may be a little neurotic and disturbing with the diagram BUT that is besides the point! I feel like its just another thing to add to the list of why you are AWESOME! Keep the posts coming!!

  5. Nur, You are awesome in finding the most unique things - be it makeup or...whatever!!!
    Love you for your uniqueness! Btw I'm one of the 27 - who has no clue about Twilight! :) But if the wedding happens in this church, I'll definitely watch!!!

  6. Wow this is gorgeous! Great blog post Nur!
