This pair of artsy cuties met, fell instantly in love, and tried really hard to licenses and a super helpful reverend to get them hitched. But when they finally did it, the pink quinceañera dress, adorable book store venue, and cupcake elf cake made it all the better. But the most serendipitous part of all is how they get free photography just by hanging out and being awesome.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of Real Weddings: Northeast US posts.
From New England to New York, couples in the Northeast have their own distinct brand of offbeat. A little urban, and little upstate, and a bit of an edge — we love you East Coast Offbeat Brides!
Who says you can't have a romantic wedding surrounded by Frankenstein, The Elephant Man, and a haunted 1920s vibe? Harnessing the powers of officiant Rev D and pulling out some super chic '20s fashion, these two had a funny, scary, and personal party with their nearest and dearest.
Gothic details, a shimmery black dress, lots of skulls, and a sweet little backyard tent for all the loved ones. There was a lot of DIY, and with it, some sage words of advice about self-catering. But our favorite part has to be the story of the father/daughter dance surprise. Get your hanky!
Pink details and crystal bling meets castles and Cthulhu. Add in some traditional elements and a bit of Game of Thrones, and you've got a crafty, DIYed wedding to make everyone have a good ol' time. And then there's "Shenanigans Box" and a Stay-Puft Marshmallow man with which to contend. We may not make it out of here, but we'll go down dancing!
We're on a boat for this one, folks, and the trip is well worth it. We've got two fabulous gowns, a groom styled after a dapper character from Rock Band, groomsmen dancing to the Power Rangers theme, and the sweetest ceremony reading story EVER. Oh, and just try not to be jealous of the unplanned fireworks show during the reception!
Some of you are already aware of Katy Perry, the glitter-sneezing, fire-shooting, lemonade-peeing unicorn, and if you're not, get ready to lose your shit. This is the full story of the country fair-themed event with cotton candy bouquets, stilt-walking lawn gamers, fire dancers, LED necklaces, kazoos, and lots and lots of gingham!
We teased this bride's technicolor gradient dress last week, and now we've got the whole vibrant story including the dress (natch!), the peacock details, Domo-kun cake topper, German unity ritual, and illustrated guest book! Oh, and wait until you read their amazing collection of quotes that was read at the ceremony!
The stars aligned on this winter solstice-meets-Mayan Calendar wedding on 12/21/12. It's a bit of winter and glowing rooms full of guests getting down to make us feel cozy and happy. The sweet embroidered hanky messages and snort-laughing ceremony don't hurt the warm fuzzies, either! Get ready for a pregnant bride and her adoring groom making the most of their time pre-baby!
An enchanted forest theme, costumes, homemade mead, and a handfasting… we're in the mood for some fantastical forest-y love! Add in a giant inflatable D20, some DIY, and a few choice vow alterations, and you've got all kinds of fun twists. Plus, you'll love who walked the bride down the aisle!
