A day in the life of an offbeat wedding (from a photographer's perspective!)

We wanted to get a behind-the-scenes look at a day in the life of a real offbeat wedding, with a timeline and everything, to see what actually goes down at an offbeat wedding. For most of us without tons of experience planning weddings, seeing the whole thing from this angle is HUGELY useful.

We partnered up with one of our super favorite photographers, Heather Schofner, to highlight one of her many epic offbeat weddings. Who better to share the details of an offbeat wedding than someone who has seen and conquered it all?

A rustic Northern California wedding with Southern flair (and a spectacular gray dress!)

Vegan, gluten-free Southern cuisine was served along with local Northern California wines and beers.

YES, we will marry this Harry Potter proposal (with wands, robes, and the Unbreakable Vow!)

Fenil surprised Isha with a Harry Potter proposal while on vacation in New Orleans and we could not love it more. They traveled from their home in Boston for a holiday in NOLA and Fenil squirreled away some wands, wizard robes, and other Hogwarts-style goodies to make the proposal ultra magical. Raise your hand if you'd make the Unbreakable Vow with this Harry Potter-themed proposal…
