After getting engaged, Kathleen and Eric went down the traditional wedding route. They reserved a venue, began to plan all the facets of the day, and as things became more and more complicated, they realized that this just wasn't what they wanted. They scrapped the entire plan and decided to get married at Boston City Hall on a warm October day, have their favorite artist give them ring tattoos, and celebrate with drinks at a bar.

And this suited Kat and Eric way better — the ones who love shopping for spooky things in Salem, drinking good beer, and walking through the woods together. They rocked a chic black wardrobe with a bouquet put together by Kat herself. The ceremony was witnessed by Kat's childhood friend, Amanda.

It was a gorgeous and simple day, and that's what makes it so rad. Let's take a peek…
