It's a bird, it's a plane… it's Offbeat Bride's comic book-clad and caped superhero theme week! Get in the telephone booth and change into your wedding-gawking superhero tights — you're in for crime-fighting fun. Today we're looking at two retro and nerdy birds who combined these two loves into a kick-ass party. Think DIY flowers, a classic car, and a life-size Spider-Man and Mary Jane cut-out! Oh, and just wait until you see the daddy/daughter first look.
Christine and Jim married each other on a private residence in Washington, surrounded by just 13 loved ones. Old-fashioned Western romance is simply everywhere you look: Christine's lace dress was made from a repurposed Quaker tablecloth (how cool is that!); huge, pale roses show up in everything from bouquets to paper cones for confetti; her daughters surprised her by wearing matching peach lace; even the candy boxes had lace hankies!
Native to South Caroline, Tammy and Patrice eloped to Washington, marrying each other at Seattle Glassblowing Studio. Photographer Jeanne Phinney credits officiant Elaine Way with organizing a lot of the wedding's details, particularly the unique ceremony. The couple signed a handmade ketubah they had brought with them and, with the help of studio artisans, created a custom piece of blown glass for their unity ritual! I'm loving how focused the artist is while the couple snuggles in the background. Sexy, artsy, romantic.
The perfect shade of sunset orange is everywhere you look in these photos from Erica and Mel's wedding last summer. It's in the desserts, in the bridesmaids' dresses — even in a vintage Ford truck. Seriously, the colors are so luscious, they make me think of those old, hand-tinted photos. Erica and Mel's style vibe definitely contributes to that old-timey feel. Erica said her custom corset and gown fulfilled the dream of the 1950s-style dress she'd been imagining. The same designer tailored Mel's dapper outfit as well.
We love the focus on accessibility and inclusion in this wedding! It's no wonder their community was so willing to come together and make this sweet backyard wedding a reality. With amazing poetry, a night-before intention setting and ring blessing gathering, and killer style (including a wooden bow tie!), this pair wins the internet today.
Color color everywhere and we get to take it all in! This adorable pair celebrated their love of bright colors, bandannas, and dancing at a chill retreat in Washington. With a cake decorating contest, a choreographed dance down the aisle, and super sweet speeches, it looks like a bright and colorful future is in store. Plus, you'll love how they officiated the ceremony themselves!
This bad-ass couple knows what's UP: lightning bolt light-up 7.5 inch platform heels, a brass knuckles theme, homemade moonshine, motorcycles, tattoos, and top hats. This backyard wedding with views of the Puget Sound is also home to sweet succulents, skeleton details, and of course… the bride's amazing dress! And just wait until you see the moment between the ring dog and the ring bearer!
Looks like the fun started the day before their summer wedding for Sam and Erin … and by fun, I mean a completely chill, totally relaxing, sun-soaked evening by the water. The two brides swam and goofed off with loved ones to kick off their wedding weekend. The laid-back vibe carried over to the next day while the couple got ready together: Sam in strapless white and Erin in a jacket and cuffed pants.
A second marriage = a second chance to craft a wedding that's totally you, right? Well this pair combined an outdoorsy winter theme with Bavarian food and style for a magical, wintry, totally cozy wedding. Do not miss the horse-drawn carriage, the red hearts theme (including on the bride's ring finger!), and the nom-worthy food list!
The historic 1800s house with wrap-around porch, the custom-made Victorian-style dress, the handmade touches… this is a wedding to just sink into like a lavender-scented bath. Tie on your corset and get into the historical vibe with this fabulous Victorian-themed garden party.
