Tying the knot, epic wedding dresses, and one uber geeky archway

May 2 |


Every week I gawk at all of the insanely great photos in the Offbeat Bride Flickr pool. You guys always kill it. Just when I think weddings can't get any cooler, y'all make arches out of light-sabers, have dresses with epic trains, and just look so damn good.

Nadine and her man sure know how to shake their groove thangs.


Heidi and her man tied the (hand-fasting) knot on the Aran Islands in Ireland. I'm lovin' the bride-in-pants look that Heidi is rocking. Flowy tunic + white pants = YES PLEASE.

OMG. Can we all just take a second to appreciate the bottom of CJ's dress? That skirt is amazing! Jess is one lucky lady. Stayed tuned to get their full wedding profile later this week.

Kimberly and her partner had an Alice In Wonderland-themed wedding. I love their mini top-hats and the Alice look-alike.

Ben and Ella's friends joined in on their first dance. They formed a line and skipped to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros' "Home."

Joe and Chrystine got married at the Waxahachie Scarborough Faire. I adore the wreath of silver flowers and ribbons in Chrystine's hair.


To end this Monday Montage with a bang, I give you this. Put me in my grave because I DIE. Everything in this photo is FUCKING amazing. Especially the colors.

  6. Oh those green shoes. I love that the groom got to be part of the colored-shoe trend. And I love the song "Home". I have deeply considered it being the last song of the night.
