You guys, this wedding will fulfill many desires: steampunk gear, Adventure Time decor, World of Warcraft bunting, and board games galore. It's everything our geeky hearts love. Add in the gorgeous paper flower bouquets, the live-action re-telling of A Lovely Love Story, and the airships and rockets, and you're in for a wild, pop-cultured filled ride with these cuties.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of long-haired groom posts.
You may remember this bride from her post about choosing to marry her boyfriend while legally married to her husband. Now we've got the whole story of how it went down, including the bride's husband catering a vegetarian meal, the handcrafted ceremony and vows, and the true meaning of what makes a "real" wedding.
Oh, rural mountain views… you tease us with your splendor and ability to lure in gorgeous tiny weddings like this one. Cowboy boots, acoustic guitars, and carrot cake await you. The flowers, campfire, and sunny weather just taunt you. And we're all falling in love with these sage-wielding, poem reading yogis and Deadheads.
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!
Kilts, ring security, games for the kiddos, and a lot of high-fiving — this wedding is more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Plus, their hand-written ceremony is tissue-worthy. And just wait until you see the original painting that was created as the ceremony happened!
Fire Flowers, MegaMan, Bob-omb, Mario, Link, and the making of player twos… this is a gamer geek's wonderland. You have to see the costumes, the 8-bit cakes, and of course, the TRIFORCE UNITY CEREMONY! Come geek out and get your game on. Just don't nibble the favor soap!
Our ceremony was a traditional Ojibwa wedding, performed by an Ojibwa elder. Ojibwa is an eastern Canadian native American tribe which is Jonah's ancestry. Our wedding was held outdoors from ceremony to pictures to dinner to reception. The reception was held at night under a patch of trees. We danced on a grass dance floor.
This pair may have never dreamed of their wedding much before planning it, but it's certainly become one of our dream weddings. With kilts, an emerald green dress, homebrewed beer, and Celtic wishing stones, it was pretty magical. But just wait until you see whose phone buzzed during the unplugged ceremony and the April Fool's prank they played on the guests!
Hang on. Lina and Mindaugas had such a sexily gorgeous wedding in Kaunas, Lithuania, that I'm still fanning myself. The couple own a yoga studio together, so let's start with how hot that is. Then let's examine the bad-assery of getting matching wedding-ring tattoos. Next, let's take into consideration how stunning the two-part ceremony was: Lina and Mindaugas exchanged vows both outdoors at the confluence of the Nemunas and Neris rivers and inside a Gothic church. St. George's Church is still undergoing restoration (building is OLD, y'all), but you'd never be able to tell from these airy, light-filled photos.
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.
For this Swedish couple, 'til death do us part just isn't going to work. They embraced the theme, "Far longer than forever," complete with skeletons to represent everlasting love. With rich red and black details and a gorgeous church backdrop, we'll be in love with this wedding forever, too. Oh, and just wait until you see their matching skeleton shoes!
