Most of April & Zack's friends don't dance, so they were forced to come up with a creative form of entertainment for their wedding. Their solution: murder mystery game!
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!
Marisa & Patrick based the theme of their wedding entirely on the location. Since they are science/comic nerds the venue of their dreams turned out to be a science museum. So they held their ceremony in the planetarium and used science paraphernalia as decorations!
Angela & Nick celebrate their inner child with a candy-filled colorsplosion, not to mention an EPIC cake smash!
Amanda & John scrapped their planned two-year engagement for a intimate Vedic ceremony six weeks later. Then nine months later they threw a celebratory square dance!
Jill & Peter's wedding plans went awry when it started raining, but they didn't let that stop them from celebrating! They turned it around by squeezing all 100 guests into a one of the Vineyard's tiny tasting rooms.
Bex and Dan had a small church ceremony in a big, kid-friendly way. Instead of flowers, their daughter carried a boutonniered Cookie Monster, and the bride was escorted down the aisle by her son.
Rebekah and Shayne's decided to move up the wedding when Shayne was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. Since they did not have enough time for wedding rings, they decided on matching gray Converse with pink shoelaces instead!
Lauren & Madhu fused different traditions from both of their religions to create a casual, eco-friendly ceremony that celebrated both faiths. The wedding even inspired Lauren to explore a new career path!
Avalon (her awesome faux-hawk) & Daniel got weddinged at a mansion. They had a gothic faerie, victorian theme and were married by the powers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
Cara and Devin had a fabulous getting weddinged party in their backyard. Oh yeah, and their backyard just happens to be a goat farm.
