Beautiful backpacking wilderness wedding #Wedding Porn#california#camping#diy wedding#long-haired groom#mountain#outdoor#simple wedding#small wedding Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Dec 1 2008) Ariel arielmstallings Amidst all the talk of dresses and decor fetishists and tiny top hats, it's easy to forget one of the core tenets of offbeat bride: that it's about having a wedding authentic to you.

Nope, sometimes it just means you and your honey exchanging your vows in the Siskiyou Wilderness of Northern California. And that, THAT is a beautiful thing.
