Burning sky sunsets, sand underfoot, crashing waves, and just four people: it's an intimate beach elopement that will make anyone searching for peace in planning salivate. If you're longing for some getaway fantasies, come fantasize here.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of short hair 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.
A Wai-Ching dress, a LEGO cake and unity ceremony, and a wayward doggie ring bearer — yep, sounds like our kind of wedding! Plus, you'll love the significance of the 799 paper cranes they made for decor. Click and see the flowing green dress and gorgeous Christian ceremony with just the right amount of customization in this backyard Texas celebration.
These two are killing it with cute. You have to see their green and blue matching vest outfits and the bride's pants outfit with heels and a feather hair clip. Though this wedding had some serious grief surrounding it, they were still able to have a fantastic time with immediate family, lots of rough-housing in the photos, and some carrot cake vows and Chapstick ceremony sweetness. Yep… Chapstick.
When the couple calls themselves "moon-loving techno-hippies," we know we're in for some fun. Get ready for some family vows (and a family sand ceremony!), some cat-loving vows, and a desert horizon at a ranch that ended up being their ideal location. It's a small, outdoor wedding with big heart.
Oh, hello fabulous and colorful venue of our dreams. You're hosting a super elegant Scotland-meets-America wedding featuring a bride with a red faux-hawk and a slew of men in kilts? Oh, you do know what we like. Lots of DIY projects, origami bouquets, and amazing mural decor? Now you're just putting us on. Guess we'll have to just see it to believe it.
This sci-fi and steampunk-loving wedding is so full of DIY projects and amazing sights, you'll be pretty damn dazzled. Add in the amazing Beatles cover band, their "steampunk bling table," and of course, the San Diego Zoo setting, and you're in for animals, costumes, and a good ol' time.
A gorgeous green bouquet, succulent favors, a Jazzy venue, and a cameo from our own developer, Kellbot — this New York City wedding is the balm to our rough days. Plus, their friends' video salute is one of the funniest we've seen. And just wait until you see how their portrait session was interrupted! Hint: it was a really sunny day!
Feast your eyes on this testament to the golden hour — a sunset elopement on a cliff in California, complete with a walk down memory lane. It's a sight for sore eyes, as is this adorable pair. They may have scaled their wedding down to eight guests, a dog, and this scenery, but it's huge on love.
Two brides, two children, and all of us looking at them like the heart-eyed emoticon. With a gorgeous estate backdrop and only 30 days to plan, this wedding came together like gangbusters. And when you hear what the brides' son did after the ceremony, you just might join our collective "aww."
This bride owns one of our most favorite dress design companies, KMKDesigns, so you won't be too surprised to see that her own dress is nothing less than magnificent. But you'll also be swept away by the other handmade fashions, nom-worthy cupcakes, the jail tour, and the totally sweet "high school prom" first dance.
