Hello, gorgeous beach wedding with a glowing bride and mohawked groom. Add in a LEGO cake, an adorably funny dad officiant, and a grandma who is pro at the "queen's wave," and you'll be smitten with this one. Oh, and you will love the impromptu vows shared the day AFTER the wedding.
Let me just lay this right here: a tentacle aisle, tentacle bouquets, a pineapple print dress, fold-out fan programs, horror movie centerpieces, and a flesh-eating martian owlopus. You read that right. Oh, and some sage advice meant for a pre-teen that totally applies to all of us. Let us know if you spot the MINGLO, too!
Kat and Justin are the husband-and-wife team behind our Seattle-based sponsor Persimmon Images. They want to make sure that you're totally comfortable in front of their cameras, so they've offered up five helpful hints as to how you can look and feel comfortable being photographed like crazy on your wedding day…
We teased this Disney-meets-Star Wars wedding last week and you guys demanded to see MOAR! From their hand-cut rainbow ketubah, Disney and Star Wars mashup decor, lightsaber cake cutters, "Unbreakable Vow" ring book, and overall makes-me-want-to-hug-them adorableness, you're going to luuuurve it. Oh, and wait until you see how they memorialized their passed loved ones at the ceremony. It didn't go quite as planned!
Susanna and Ricki, aka Kitten and Lou, are a drag king and a burlesque queen in lurve. After meeting on stage and falling in love while performing in an Atomic Bombshells revue, they have become the world's showbusiest couple. Since Washington passed Referendum 74, they knew it was time to get hitched… in some serious style. A little camp, a lot of glam, and a hell of a lot of performances, it is a confetti and balloon-festooned show not to be missed.
As those of you who follow Offbeat Bride on Facebook already know, this weekend I crashed a reader's wedding (and live-updated the whole thing as I got progressively more inebriated). This is the story of how it all went down, with the added bonus of gorgeous photos and awesome details from Liz and Mark's wedding in Port Angeles, WA.
Things to love about this gorgeous forest-y wedding: comic book paper flowers, the bride's amazing vintage dress, their geeky location signs, lots of DIY projects, and their mutual deep love of FOOD (and each other!). Plus, they are both chic as hell. Wait until you hear the bride's sneaky trick on the groom. Hint: it involves cake.

A Beltane wedding in the forest surrounded by intricate and lovely craft projects turned spiritual wedding decor — this is magical, indeed. The community collaborated on the whole thing with potluck food, a "cupcake brigade," decoupaged lace lights, a love altar, and handmade accessories. Oh, and don't forget that the bride made her own Victorian-inspired dress!
These two had some interesting dilemmas: managing expectations from a very Catholic family and a not-so-Catholic family, balancing the needs of disabilities and the recovery community, and having a super low budget. But we can all learn from this bride's kick-ass attitude about keeping things accessible and authentic! Plus, we're totally behind any wedding that ends with a D&D campaign.
