Two tattooed brides and an adorable California spring wedding

Offbeat Bride has a plethora of weddings that are edgy, fun, wild, and deliciously left-field. But every once in a while, one comes my way that is just so damn pretty. Katie and Michelle said their vows on the most gorgeous, early spring day. These two tattooed brides are wearing the flowiest mermaid dresses, the light during the ceremony is crisp, and the trees are getting their own springtime fashion on.

While you're gawking at all the pretty, be on the lookout for a few details that I thought were extra cool. For example, note that the maids of honor (one for each bride) each wore a long dress in a dark shade while their respective bridesmaids wore short dresses in complementary pastels. As favors, the brides offered their guests some adorable, vintage-looking bottled soda. Notice the lovely tag on each bottle! Awwww.

Oh, and if you're looking for a different take on a "bar" (you've heard of dessert bars, hot chocolate bars, coffee bars, and s'mores bars), take a gander at Katie and Michelle's very own Trail Mix Bar.
