Couples in Colorado: meet your new photographer best friend. Want to know why? Because this chick is a full-on Lord of the Rings-loving, too many dogs-owning (or can there be too many?), Simon Pegg-quoting, awkward pose-hating, ultra rad photographer who totally embraces ALL your offbeat quirks. I'm talking about Denver- and Boulder-based Carrie Swails Photography. We've talked about her before, and we already know that Tribesmaids and readers love her. Now you get to meet her and see if she's your wedding photographer match. I have a feeling she just might be.
A local waterworks museum is a pretty rad venue for a LEGO-themed wedding like this. This pair loves engineering, color, and having a grand time building with LEGO. They may have been concerned that their guests wouldn't jive with the theme, but boy were those fears unfounded. You'll want to see how they incorporated LEGO into their cake, their ceremony, and even their shoes. Just watch out for the bride's grandma… she's feisty!
We give a lot of love to the looks of our Offbeat Brides — I mean, we've got archives full of posts about birdcage veils and fascinators and nonfloral bouquets — so it's totally time to give some limelight to our grooms too. This week, let's respect the hair, man, and admire 20 ways our grooms rock their gorgeous, long hair.
I really wanted to keep in the nerdy wedding vibe going with my shoe choice, so I began searching for Doctor Who or Star Wars shoes that were cute and not more than $50. Yeah, I know… I'm dreaming.

From the "cheese" cake to the cork board Polaroid guest book, this chic London wedding just exudes style. Originally from New Zealand and America, these two are now living it up in London and taking advantage of all the craft beer, Prosecco, gorgeous venues, and good times the city has to offer. Let's explore their 1970s-inspired, multi-colored dress wearing, seafoam green leisure suit sporting wedding.
As a wedding photographer, I hear these two statements all of the time: “we aren’t worried about prints right now” or “we will order prints after the wedding.” Here's why you should think about going through the pain-in-the-ass process of turning that convenient USB drive into real life wedding prints…
Okay, yes, we're moving away from the season of skeletons and spooks, BUT. I owe it to you all to show you this one last spooky glam wedding! Crissa made for an awesome corpse bride when she and TJ got married earlier this fall. She styled her own look, thanks in part to her grandmother's wedding dress, a skirt of her own, and some choice accessories from Lovechild Boudoir. TJ absolutely kept up with his own Victorian corpse groom costume, and Crissa's daughter joined in the fun as a sparkly princess.
We've seen some amazing carnival weddings, but this one may be in contention for the most epic decor ever. We're talking popcorn, Cracker Jacks, pinwheels, faux flash tattoos, circus-themed centerpieces, a hot dog stand, a huge and gorgeous candy buffet, and a retro circus cage photo booth! It will make you want to hop on a ferris wheel and get hitched, vintage carnival-style.
