If you're into rainbow weddings, you've gotta check out Simon and Petra's color-infused, rainbow-central, DIY love fest. They got married in the registry office of Andover, UK, before they partied at a local community center. Check out the monochromatic bouquets (which Petra totally made herself), be in awe of her own red-and-white brooch bouquet, and — oh my WOW — Petra's nails. Those tiny lil hearts took three hours to paint!
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of couples of color posts.
These two rascals sneaked into a historical chapel in New Mexico for their legal vows, and then topped it off with a big bash in Colorado with friends and family. It's a little historical, a little emotional, and downright adorable. Oh, and you might just love one of the bride's takes on the wedding certificate as full-on AWARD!
Double the brides meant double the proposal stories for Kathryn and Jennifer's wedding last summer. Photographer Tracie Howe let us know that the couple met online (just before Kathryn closed her dating account!), proposed to each other, and got married at the Fremont Mischief Distillery. Apparently it was the distillery's first wedding — way to take the lead, ladies! Let me join your wedding guests in high fives all around.
A little Alice in Wonderland, a smidge of Doctor Who, and two geeky kids in the Philippines tie the knot, geek-style. With a pink princess gown, little Alices and Ums running around, and some crafty projects, there was no way this wasn't going to be fun. Not even a typhoon warning was stopping it. Oh, and wait until you hear about the family's first dance starring an Xbox!
Y'all know we love our rainy weddings at Offbeat Bride, and this is one for the frickin books. Chad & Eric got married at Kualoa Ranch on an overcast Hawaiian day. Their first-look photos are some of the most epically sweet I've ever seen: Eric's suit is sprinkled with raindrops as he tries not to cry in Chad's arms (squeee!). The couple positively shine through the soggy conditions, roaming the beaches and posing like fashion icons.
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 some killer photo booth props, wedding-themed comic books, and the most epic wedding trailer ever.
I can hear your squeals from here. I can hear them as I'm writing this because this wedding IS JUST THAT AWESOME. What an addition to Offbeat Bride superhero week! Reinesha and Devan were absolutely on point as Wonder Woman and Superman for their Arizona wedding. The cape. The Superman wedding socks. The Wonder Woman wedding socks. The tiara. The red, blue, and yellow corset ties. The coordinating superhero eye makeup and nail art. The general bad-assitude oozing from every photo. Do they not look like they are having the best time in all the world?
Black and white stripes, a sexy pin-up dress, long black gloves, and a groom in red — this wedding is very enticing. Add in all of the video game references (including in the vows!), and you've got the best combination of gamer geeks and total hotties. Don't miss the Mario centerpieces and the bride's swanky top hat and Batman ring!
Jeff and Aiofe married each other last year on the British Columbia coast and frickin' brought the style. I mean, you have her bright blue (such an awesome color), mega-ruffled dress. And then he's wearing a cravat (always a good choice) with a matching pocket square. They looked cute just saying their vows, they looked cute jumping the broom, and they looked cute while romping through low tides with bridesmaids, and striking cover-worthy poses with groomsmen.
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.
Say hello to a new photographer on our vendor list (hi, Amy Ann Photography!) with this gorgeous LGBT wedding in Ohio. Tara and Tayo had married each other in Manhattan in early 2013, which they celebrated last fall with a mashup of Jewish and African-American traditions. The couple kept the initial part of the celebration small, with only a few loved ones around while they performed a handwashing and signed a ketubah. For the larger ceremony outside, guests faced first one way then the other as they listened to quotes from African-American authors and a traditional Jewish ceremony under a canopy.
