A canoe entrance, a dock jump, and a breastfeeding mama round out this fab camp wedding

Gus and Ria were married at Camp Moran State Park on Orcas Island, where they camped and partied hard. Some of our favorite parts include the couple's son Harlan breastfeeding before the wedding, the canoe entrance to the ceremony, and the joyous dock jump after! They quite literally took the plunge. The reception had dancing, s'mores, and even some skinny-dipping. All is right with this wedding.


Seattle is gaining a stellar photographer in Bri McDaniel (and get in on her "day in the life" shoots that give us MAJOR feels)

You guys may remember our rad sponsor, Bri McDaniel Photography, from such amazingly gorgeous weddings as Andrea and Dedrick's in the Smoky Mountains and when Jenny married Jake in the shirt she wore on their first date. Our girl knows her way around a camera and an offbeat wedding. Today we've got huge news for our west coast readers: Bri is moving from Atlanta to take on Seattle! Let's see what makes her tick and how this move is AWESOME for us.


Party rocking, wedding crashing & bizarre requests with Washington-based DJ, Music Masters

Music Masters is a family-owned, independent mobile dj company based in — get this — Bainbridge Island, Washington. Yes, the hometown of our homegirl Ariel! Not only does Offbeat Bride share that connection with Music Masters, but they've also been one of our sponsors for a gagillion years (roughly), Lovesick Expo vendors for the last two years, and has played tons of wild, offbeat weddings.


Two grooms in white elope to Olympic Sculpture Park

Fifteen is a lucky number for Jos A and Brick, and they made sure to exchange vows at precisely 5:15 p.m. on May 15, 2015. The two grooms kept their elopement super simple at Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle: just a pair of matching white suits, a couple of purple pocket squares, and two very smashing hats. They said their vows in front of a few important guests (four, including the officiant) and followed up the occasion with wine and tapas in their own apartment.
