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?
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of couples of color posts.
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.
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!
Rainy weddings bring their own special brand of gorgeousness. Kat and Greg got married on a drizzly April day in 2013, near Greg's hometown of Nanaimo, British Columbia. Thanks to the abundance of greenery at hand, most of the decor — like the beautiful, fern-covered trellis — was hand-sourced by family members. Looks like family helped out in a big way throughout the wedding: Greg's mom not only made the couple's cake, but also Greg's stunning, traditional Japanese ensemble. I adore the fact that he used a book to put it on correctly.
As amazing as Greg looked, don't forget to check out Kat. Girl has a tattoo sleeve that is jaw-dropping. She showed it off with a dress in her favorite color, green.
This gorgeous pair combined their love of bikes, the beaches of Uluwatu, Bali, and amazing handmade details into this flower-filled and super lovely beach wedding. Don't miss the bike-themed cupcakes, the awesome wedding party outfits (including a chic groom's girl), and fabulous reception dress!
Two things: Natural Hair and Etsy. Michael and Michelle's elegant New York City wedding had both in abundance. Now, we love Natural Hair, so it's incredibly awesome to see that so many people at this wedding are owning the look. The bride, the guests, even the officiant have some very cool locs going on.
I was so awestruck by the hair that it took me a sec to see the rest of Michael and Michelle's details. There are SO many. From the serving utensils, to the guestbook, to the cake toppers, to the coloring books, to some really clever napkins — they're all Etsy, yo, and I've got an enormous vendor list for you after the jump.
Flower sword fights, pygmy goats, millions of book page flowers, and geeky Star Wars details all over this joint — it's a geeky wedding, Texas-style! This handfasting meets techie wedding is an amazing mix of themes. Oh, and wait until you check out the bride's DIYed Star Wars comic shoes!
A Central Park ceremony, rooftop shenanigans, and a family-focused Chicago reception — these two cuties know to party cross-country! Add in the queer-friendly atmosphere, last-minute cheesecake, and sand ceremony mishap, and you've got a recipe for offbeat magic.
