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.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of short hair posts.
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.
I'll say it again: a-frickin-dorable. Lise was seven months pregnant when she married Sam in a California backyard last November, and now I just want to see more cute moms-to-be in combat boots, please. Preferably with short hair dyed to match their wedding colors (black and red, y'all!).
Once you've stopped cooing over how cute Lise and Sam are together, may I direct your attention to a few particularly stunning details? For example, a family friend put together Lise's incredible bouquet. How COOL are those long chains dangling from the fabric flowers? Keys and brooches are hiding out in the mix as well.
This pair loves their Elder Scrolls and Game of Thrones and managed to seamlessly integrate their geeky interests into their decor. They also totally found a way to hack their social anxiety by having escape routes and special signals when things got too overwhelming. Plus, you'll love the bride's black Dr. Marten's hidden under her floofy white dress!
Thrifted tea pots and finger sandwiches make our pinkies lift involuntarily. It's only natural that we'd squee over this wedding: the handmade purple dress masterpiece, the seamlessly integrated interfaith details, and the geeky book details are stellar. Don't miss how Strictly Ballroom may have subliminally influenced the bride's decision to marry her groom!
