Oh, rural mountain views… you tease us with your splendor and ability to lure in gorgeous tiny weddings like this one. Cowboy boots, acoustic guitars, and carrot cake await you. The flowers, campfire, and sunny weather just taunt you. And we're all falling in love with these sage-wielding, poem reading yogis and Deadheads.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of Real Weddings: Western US posts.
Here are some of the most freaky fabulous weddings from the shores of the
BestWest Coast all the way to the Rocky Mountain states … Offbeat Bride is based on the West Coast, and we definitely love our weird weddings in this part of the world.
Adventure Time, pretty colors, handmade bouquets, and MINGLO — these two know what we like! You'll also swoon over the ombre cake, the unplanned ceremony make-out session, sweet letters to the bridesmaids, and the big dash to the door during "Bohemian Rhapsody."
It's a bird, it's a plane… it's Offbeat Bride's comic book-clad and caped superhero theme week! Get in the telephone booth and change into your wedding-gawking superhero tights — you're in for crime-fighting fun. This time we've got two actors who fell in love on the stage and wanted to celebrate it superhero-style. Get ready for singing and dancing bridesmaids, a whole lotta Hanson music, and the return of… THE UNITY SANDWICH!
It's a bird, it's a plane… it's Offbeat Bride's comic book-clad and caped superhero theme week! Get in the telephone booth and change into your wedding-gawking superhero tights — you're in for crime-fighting fun. Today we've got an offbeat lite celebration of all things vintage comic books. Think ring bearers in capes, superhero cufflinks, and even some sexy comic book leggings under the bride's dress!
It's a bird, it's a plane… it's Offbeat Bride's comic book-clad and caped superhero theme week! Get in the telephone booth and change into your wedding-gawking superhero tights — you're in for crime-fighting fun. Today we're looking at two retro and nerdy birds who combined these two loves into a kick-ass party. Think DIY flowers, a classic car, and a life-size Spider-Man and Mary Jane cut-out! Oh, and just wait until you see the daddy/daughter first look.
Are you in the mood for some serious castle partying with swords, flutes, medieval garb, and the most epic phoenix and Lord of the Rings cake ever? Yeah, we thought so. Get ready for a gorgeous venue, intricate elements ceremony, costume awards, sword arches, and the most lush fantasy wedding we've seen in a long time. And just wait until you see the bride's dad get crowned king of Gondor!
When the couple calls themselves "moon-loving techno-hippies," we know we're in for some fun. Get ready for some family vows (and a family sand ceremony!), some cat-loving vows, and a desert horizon at a ranch that ended up being their ideal location. It's a small, outdoor wedding with big heart.
This sci-fi and steampunk-loving wedding is so full of DIY projects and amazing sights, you'll be pretty damn dazzled. Add in the amazing Beatles cover band, their "steampunk bling table," and of course, the San Diego Zoo setting, and you're in for animals, costumes, and a good ol' time.
Fire Flowers, MegaMan, Bob-omb, Mario, Link, and the making of player twos… this is a gamer geek's wonderland. You have to see the costumes, the 8-bit cakes, and of course, the TRIFORCE UNITY CEREMONY! Come geek out and get your game on. Just don't nibble the favor soap!
We love the focus on accessibility and inclusion in this wedding! It's no wonder their community was so willing to come together and make this sweet backyard wedding a reality. With amazing poetry, a night-before intention setting and ring blessing gathering, and killer style (including a wooden bow tie!), this pair wins the internet today.
A luscious red dress, a guy-linered groom, an amazing theater venue, and a plan to make everyone mix and mingle that included ornate masks — this spooky Halloween wedding in Salem, Oregon makes our knees quake in fear… I mean lust! Add in some movie and video game-themed music and some costume-clad guests and you're in for a spooky time with a super gorgeous backdrop.
