A blended family wedding with two brides and a long-lost ring #Wedding Porn#blended family#DIY#lesbian#LGBT#outdoor#short engagement#short hair#tattooed bride#two dresses#washington November 28 | Catherine Clark enidjcoleslaw Nicole and Julie had a lovely outdoor ceremony in Washington full of emotional touches. They had lots of DIY projects and planned the whole shebang in only two months. One very sweet surprise for Julie was during the ceremony when Julie's father and Nicole surprised her with her grandmother's ring, which was thought to be lost. The wedding party consisted of their blended family, including Nicole's four children. Julie had never worn a dress before and wanted her first time to be her wedding dress! Thanks to Alisha from Haute Pink Photography for letting us share this wedding. Natalie & Iliana's laid-back bounce house wedding With s'mores, hula hoops, a bounce house (carefully hidden from kiddie's eyes until after the ceremony), and a photo booth, there was something for all...

I have been pretty obsessed with finding 'humor in matrimony' photos these days. You'd be surprised at how many wedding albums come back with no humor whatsoever. Beautiful wedding and congratulations to the happy couple! 1 agrees Reply I know, right? What's up with all the angst in wedding photos these days? Weddings are supposed to be happy and fun. Fun!, forcryinoutloud. That being said, my favorite photo is actually the one where Julie sees the ring… that one choked me up. I just love this wedding. Congratulations to Julie and Nicole! 2 agree Reply ME TOO. *sniffle* And the expression on Nicole's Dad's face while they're dancing…*reaches for tissues* 0 agree Reply You'd be surprised at how many wedding albums come back with no humor whatsoever. You'll definitely want to read this post: Whatever you do — DON'T SMILE 0 agree Reply I really need to get a post together….I gave my squad parasols instead of flowers, and there is totally a shot of parasol fencing that is the one which makes us deeply happy. 0 agree Reply Gorgeous wedding, beautiful brides! 1 agrees Reply i think this was a very gorgeous wedding. and also i belived that two people that love each it souldn't matter whether you are the same sex or not it seen that alot of people want to be the judge get a life and i love the sign here come the other bride 1 agrees Reply Wow! Just… wow! Congratulations! The pictures capture to mood of an incredibly fun day full of love… And I love Julie's hair do – finally some inspiration on what I can do to mine… Thanks for sharing! 0 agree Reply Love this wedding! Looks like a lot of fun – am I the only one who wants to know how Julie felt in the dress? The first dress ever experience… how did it go?? 2 agree Reply This put a big weepy smile on my face. Congratulations on your beautiful wedding! 0 agree Reply Lovely. Felicitations to the happy couple. 0 agree Reply Why does OBB feel the need to point out when it's a gay couple's wedding (ie, two brides, LGBT wedding, etc)? I fully support same-sex marriages; doesn't constantly pointing out the difference between these wedding posts and "regular" weddings just reinforce the idea that they aren't equal? Just a thought… 1 agrees Reply This issue has been addressed many times over the years, most notably here: http://offbeatbride.com/2010/01/labels-and-self-identifying And most recently here: http://offbeatempire.com/2012/11/poop-pee-and-identities-vs-labels 9 agree Reply it makes a difference if you are wedding planning! like, a lesbian bride will want to see pictures of other lesbian brides and what kind of outfits they tried etc. A disabled bride will want to see photos of other brides in wheelchairs or whatnot. I'm really not sure on whose behalf you are offended, I think its pretty silly and that there are clear reasons on this site to identify whatever, that actually helps out the affected groups. 4 agree Reply gorgeousest wedding! So much beautiful emotion and LOVE 'Here comes the other bride sign' such a great touch 1 agrees Reply I LOVE that she wanted to save wearing a dress for her wedding day, so sweet! But I love even more that she changed later on. It showcases both sides of her so well. Beautiful! 5 agree Reply Truly beautiful. I can see the love on the two brides faces, they look like they are meant for each other. : ) 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
