Coffee, tattoos, & bubbles at this vegan botanical garden wedding in Virginia

Ashley channeled a bohemian goddess from head to gold-toe Doc Martens, and Dave rocked his tux with his signature fully ringed fingers. The ceremony was performed by a family friend, surrounded by a small group of family and friends in the stunning atrium. Both Ashley and Dave are coffee enthusiasts so for their cocktail hour they had a coffee bar by Caffe Amouri.

Their vegan wedding dinner was Irish breakfast-themed catered by DC Vegan. At the end, they were sent off by a cascade of bubbles. You've got to see this one…

A modern Tuscan black tie wedding with plenty of DIY and style

The theme to our wedding was modern, Tuscan black tie. We had champagne taste on a beer and butter budget. We splurged on the picture perfect venue and catering, but everything else you see was DIY.

The store I purchased my dress from went BANKRUPT and closed its doors just eight weeks before my wedding!

A water-themed polyamorous elopement at a lakeside bungalow

I didn't want a big poofy white dress, since I'd done that previously, and I wanted to be able to enjoy my time with my new guy, so no fuss was my general goal. Here's how our tiny elopement went down…

An intimate wedding at sunset overlooking Shenandoah Valley (with a super special wedding date)

David and Hanser's intimate ceremony was held on a Tuesday evening at sunset in the popular Shenandoah National Park along Skyline Drive. The wedding date itself, October 17th, held a special meaning as that is when David's late parents were married.

Just wait until you check out their snazzy blue suits (not too matchy, though!), the bow ties, and the most gorgeous golden hour ever.
