Mara and Josh went for a theme with a Tim Burton twist for their Colorado wedding last June and nailed it. Look for black and white stripes everywhere, splashes of pink where it counts (even in Mara's hair!), and tons of carnival details in every photo: Altoid tins turned circus trains? Guestbook attendants in a ticket booth? Stilt walkers in corsets? A steampunk officiant? CHAINSAW JUGGLERS?
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of long-haired groom posts.
Bubbles, faerie wings, flowering tea centerpieces, and a gorgeous sunny Florida day makes this wedding a lovely sight for sore winter eyes. There was almost a faerie wing disaster, but a last-minute save did the trick. Plus, the bride has some advice on setting up a schedule for the day: DO IT!
This pair of artsy cuties met, fell instantly in love, and tried really hard to licenses and a super helpful reverend to get them hitched. But when they finally did it, the pink quinceañera dress, adorable book store venue, and cupcake elf cake made it all the better. But the most serendipitous part of all is how they get free photography just by hanging out and being awesome.
Serge and Ely wed in Pennsylvania at the Abington Art Center, which proved to be a most excellent backdrop for their vintage and goth-friendly wedding day. The bridesmaids were decked out in mismatched purple gowns, the groomsmen (and officiant!) donned top hats, and an adorable owl and beaver topped their cake. If you're a fan of costumes, you'll totally dig the unicorn mask that the bride and groom took turns wearing during the reception. Thanks to Offbeat Bride vendor Fun and Funky Wedding Photography for sending these our way!
This woodsy punk wedding was a full day of games, singing, barbecue, swimming, and a sweet little ceremony smack dab in the middle. Plus, everyone looked amazing in corsets, tutus, and leather flowers. Oh, and don't miss this kitty-loving couple's photo-bomber!
Qiyan came to the United States from Beijing, China a few years ago to pursue her PhD. Antoine was born in France and lived there before coming to the U.S. for his PhD. They met, combined their lives, and had a multifaith, multicultural, and multinational wedding in the gorgeously gothic campus of the University of Chicago. Oh, and just wait until you see their adorable turtle cake!
When you only have a tiny ceremony planned, sometimes it's the best opportunity to go BIG with the theme. This gorgeous pair took to the skies for a hot air balloon ride towards marriage! They added in some steampunk fashion details (including a lush blue corseted dress) and champagne brunch, and the day was totally made.
