When a party turns out to be a SURPRISE summer camp wedding

Shay and Chris had one main goal for their wedding: for everyone to have major fun. To achieve this, they made a drastic move and didn't tell their guests that a wedding was happening! Yep, it was a surprise summer camp wedding in Oregon with games, bonfires, and loads of fun.

Let's take a look at the surprise wedding shenanigans…

A Malagasy-American intimate Whidbey Island backyard wedding

Elsie and Dilphe met in Madagascar while Elsie was serving in the Peace Corps. They now live in Seattle, but Elsie's family history lies in Whidbey Island where they got married in her parents' backyard. Dilphe's siblings were able to travel from Madagascar for the wedding so this day was solely set aside for just pure fun and family.

A romantic Ohio forest elopement for two (with purple hair and smoke bombs!)

Kitti and Sean wanted a private and intimate Ohio forest elopement for two. They want it private, but they also wanted it to represent their style. Their photographer met them at the entrance to the forest at Pine Quarry Park in Reynoldsburg, Ohio. There was a private ceremony, a gorgeous cake, and a few stunning portraits (some with colorful smoke bombs — the groom's idea!).

Let's get a tiny look at this secluded Ohio forest elopement…

The Redwood Wedding: All men must dine

We met at a Game of Thrones viewing party and podcast, and we really bonded over our love (read: obsession) with food. So when it came time to plan our wedding at Mike's ancestral — Redwood House — we combined the things that brought us together: Game of Thrones and food. Thus, "The Redwood Wedding: All Men Must Dine" was born. And man, was it awesome!
