A Wonderful Wizard Of Oz Wedding

In honor of Oz the Great and Powerful, take a look at a few of our favorite ideas from Anna and Brandon’s beautiful wedding held at the Land of Oz, a mostly-defunct Wizard of Oz theme park in North Carolina. Photography by Brett & Jessica.

1. Land of Oz

The theme park, which operated from 1970 to 1980, featured a cyclone experience ride within Dorothy’s house, a yellow brick road leading to a show at Emerald City, an artificial balloon ride (a modified ski lift), and a museum with props and costumes from the 1939 film. Anna’s father worked in the park in the ’70s, and her parents have such happy memories from their time spent there. With a little digging, her mom discovered that the park still operates for special events. It was the perfect fit for Anna and Brandon’s big day!
