Her Offbeat Partner: Joshua, Writer
Location & date of wedding: The Alexis Hotel, Seattle WA — 12/31/2008
What made our wedding offbeat: Our wedding was on a holiday (New Year's Eve), eschewed tradition (our vows were written by a Tibetan Buddhist Monk), and our family and friends helped us keep our costs down.
Our biggest challenge: Although it was our wedding, we had a lot of input from parents.
My favorite moment: Getting married was my favorite.
A tie for second was my custom wedding hat and bouquet with feathers, roses, calla lilies, and green blackberry vines.
My advice to other offbeat brides: Do what makes you happy, but consider your mother's requests.
If you can, you should make your own wedding stationary and enlist a creative friend to do all the wedding flowers (this tip only works for certain brides).
Care to share a few vendor/shopping links?:
My hat was made by Alice Hart Couture, she was super nice and very patient with my vision and created a beautiful wedding hat. And I designed my own invitiaitons, rsvp cards, etc and had them printed by a local print vendor.
Enough talk — show me the wedding inspo!:
