By on Mar. 25th

AJ10067-viOnce again, it's time to round-up our latest reader photos. This week we had things submitted to us via our Flickr pool and Instagram. (Did you know you can now tag us @offbeatbride on Instragram to be considered for a feature in our reader roundups?) That's exactly how Offbeat Bride reader Amelia got me to see this wedding photo with their new dino friend on their wedding day! How cute is this trio?

Let's look at MORE adorable photos of our wonderful readers…


My stomach is doing flips over Sara and Ben's Zelda groom's cake. Offbeat Bride reader Sara:

Ben has a triforce tattoo and Zelda has always been his favorite game series, and his favorite dessert is a Blackout Cake… thus the groom's cake! Our colors were red and blue, which they mimicked on the flowers on the petits fours.

Bridal Party in the Pumpkin Patch

Photo by The Happy Couple.


Leslie and Steve here had a photo shoot with their bridal party in the pumpkin patch where they got engaged. The location is aces, since they had a Halloween-themed wedding in late October.

We will always have a soft spot in our hearts for hula hoops. So OF COURSE we love this photo of Leslie hooping with her Astral Atomic Hoop at her wedding. It's a fitting portrait, since she teaches hoop-dance classes.

Bridesmaid loveNow let's check out an amazing wedding dress in action on Offbeat Bride reader Ayla. This is an incredible photo of her with friend Lisa. Ayla's rainbow hair, the rainbow dress detail, the floral crown, with Lisa's flowing blue gown and sweet smile… holy crap I can't even deal with the OMG adorbrz that is this photo.

my girlsYou know what else is OMG adorbz? Ayla's bridesmaids barefoot in tutus. I hope we see a whole lot more of this wedding in the future. In fact, I hope we see a whole lot more of ALL of your weddings in our Flickr pool!
