Monday Montage: When nature calls

By on Jan. 17th

As usual, my mind has been blown by all of the fantastic photos in the Offbeat Bride Flickr pool. Seriously, people: my head might explode soon from all of your awesome-ness. Anyway, I'm enjoying all of the outdoor lovin', as a result this Monday Montage features a lot of greenery. So, please buckle your seat-belts as I take you on a little woodland wedding adventure.

P.S. Don't forget, you can always choose your own adventure — click on a photo to see more!

Chloe and Michael weren't afraid to get down and dirty on their wedding day, so they got married at the Woodford Folk Festival. What else would you expect from a couple who met via the circus and got engaged at a burlesque revue? As you might suspect, they had an "Old-World-inspired, Traveling-Circus-Infused Festival Wedding." I have to say, they rocked that shit!

Marina and Adam also rocked the circus theme, with a kissing booth, colorful costumes and a lady with fire fingers!? It's no wonder they dubbed their wedding the "Circus of Love."

Nothing says true love like licking your man's eye ball! Hels and Jules are too adorkable. I can't even handle it.

Just a couple of kids making out in the woods… But seriously, these two forest dwellers got married near Alqonguin Park, Canada. You'll be hearing more about Laura's incredible buckskin corset and the rest of her bad ass wedding attire later this week.

Cheryl and Jamie legally got married in Edmonton, AB. Afterward, they got weddinged on Playa de los Muertos in Sayulita, Mexico. Props to Cheryl for making jumping in a schmancy dress look easy.

Here are Lydia and her "mini-bridesmaid" lookin' simply fabulous as they await Lydia and Nathan's "magical hippyish lovefest in the forest…"

…Lydia and Nathan weren't joking about the magic part. They appear to be glowing like fairies in this photo. I dig.

Julia and Shannon got married on an unusually hot day, at the Burke Museum in Seattle, WA. Even the heat couldn't stop them from grinning like a couple of smitten kittens.

I'll leave you with this last shot of Megan and her unbelievably bright bridesmaids. Ahhhhh-mazing.

Hey, photographers! I love you and do my best to attribute all Monday Montage photos, but sometimes brides don't include your info when they submit photos. If I've featured your work but it isn't properly credited, email me!
