This rad pop-up wedding had glitter, sequins, and huge rainbow mural LOVE

We wanted something small that fit us, but could also include our children and family. We didn't want to just run off to the courthouse. We wanted it to be simple and stress-free. We bounced ideas of locations back and forth. Maggie from Pop! Wed Co. suggested the "LOVE" mural at Blagden Alley. We were in DC for New Years so we checked it out and fell in love with it.

An elegantly goth Friday the 13th wedding with hints of Tim Burton

Our wedding was a blend of a whole lot of fall, Halloween, goth, Tim Burton-like elements that all worked together in a surprisingly elegant way. We incorporated as much of our ancestral history as we could. We had photos of our passed relatives at both the ceremony and our reception. I wore the bracelet of Daniel's grandmother, I slipped her wedding ring onto my handkerchief, and I read my vows from a bound volume of the poetry written by Daniel's grandfather. It was important to us to share our roots with each other and our families and friends as we became one.

This wedding week in Ireland had an all-night party near the cliffs

When choosing the wedding destination, we thought of all the incredible places we'd visited and that we wanted to share with our friends and family. Doolin, Ireland easily stood out. We could have easily hosted a beautiful beach wedding in California (where I am from) or a mountain wedding in Colorado (where the groom is from), but we wanted to do something different that was unique to our relationship. We had been together over seven years and wanted something that reflected us.
