Last time, I gave you the rundown on the four reasons our sponsor Revolution Weddings should be your wedding DJ and officiant. But that was then, and this is now, and NOW Revolution Weddings is more than a DJ/officiant. Revolution Weddings is now an awesome, all-female, wedding company that offers almost ALL the wedding vendors you need in one place.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of california posts.
This is the story of a media-obsessed bride becoming wedding media herself. But in this case, the bride totally made peace with her obsession and ended up with a wedding to rival all the ones she idolized. Her red gown, colorful fall decor, and epic venue with a mountain backdrop all make us wish we were right there with them. Just watch out for Zorro and Pancho Villa… there's bound to be a fight there.
We don't even know where to start with this explosion of awesome, so let's just gush: metal rocket ships, plastic reindeer, vintage arcade games and a jukebox, wine barrels, vintage furniture, antlers, succulents… all DIYed to blissful, farm-raised local perfection.
This couple and their friends are artists and IT SHOWS. The metal ceremony arch the groom made will knock you out, too. Oh, and wait until you hear the coincidence with the sweetheart table chairs!
A survey for guest needs, customized snacks in your camp-style guest house, a nostalgia-themed lunch, a pool, trivia, and games all weekend? We are officially ultra-jealous of attendees of this wedding. This couple, who totally knows how to cater to their awesomely diverse community, managed to pull off a stellar wedding weekend full of love, hilarity, and choreographed dance moves.
Continuing in the spirit of superhero week here at Offbeat Bride, tag along with us to the Santa Barbara Zoo. Bridget and Sam got married there earlier this spring surrounded by subtle hints of superherodom: Batman cufflinks, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle bow tie, the 11th Doctor and Amy Pond cake toppers… wait, what's that? The Doctor isn't a superhero? He is in my heart, okay, let me have my little pleasures, IT TOTALLY COUNTS.
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.
Okay, so the last time we actively gushed about our sponsors Lily and Chris from Wild About You photography was back in 2012. But since then we've featured their amazing photos all the freaking time. Seriously, we're wild about Wild About You, and if you've clickied any of those linkies it's easy to see why. So let's talk about getting you some Wild About You for your wedding…
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.
A red carpet, popcorn and soda, and even a film noir short film created by the couple — this is a cinephile's dream wedding. Add in the 1940s-era outfits, Moulin Rouge-inspired gown, and delish food truck nosh, and these two totally know how to party film buff-style.
Tradition meets tons of personalization with this Disney and movie-themed wedding. We're talking illustrations from favorite movies, Disney centerpieces, 3D cut-outs, and lots of elements from their signature styles. It was both a dry wedding and a no-dancing wedding, but with Truth or Dare Jenga, scavenger hunts, a photo booth, and a gelato bar, there was no shortage of super-fun-ness. And just wait until you read the bride's favorite moment. It's like you're there!
Feast your eyes on this testament to the golden hour — a sunset elopement on a cliff in California, complete with a walk down memory lane. It's a sight for sore eyes, as is this adorable pair. They may have scaled their wedding down to eight guests, a dog, and this scenery, but it's huge on love.
