We had no decor, only the crashing waves and stormy skies. Our friend and officiant started the ceremony with a reading of a poem JRR Tolkien wrote for his wife.
We had a big wedding planned. We had bridesmaids and everything! But during the pandemic… We decided to just take off without telling anyone and get married. We used nature as our decoration and it was more perfect than the big wedding we were planning ever could have been.
A beachside ceremony, ceremonial leis adorning killer fashion, and two grooms ready to make it official on the southern shore of the island of O’ahu. This is a wedding to savor. White, blue, and silver roses adorned the island venue that was made even more magical with perfect island weather. Devon and Ricky had romantic and funny vows that were set to a song rhyme. Finishing the ceremony with the jumping over the “groomstick” capped it all off with a little tradition. Don your beach hat and sunnies and bask in the bright day and even brighter love of these two grooms and their Hawaii wedding…
Cariona and Omorow first met when Cariona went down to Canouan (a small island in the Caribbean) for work. When planning their wedding, the couple knew that they wanted to get married down in the Caribbean where it all began. They decided on Bequia, a small island off of the main island, Saint Vincent. The couple was married on the oldest church on the island, St. Mary’s Anglican Church. Afterwards, everyone danced until the party was crashed (literally) at the end of the night, ending in a giant celebration and a spontaneous jump into the pool.
Marine life thrives in your stationery with these vintage-style aquatic wedding invitations (now double-sided!)
Science-themed weddings, aquarium weddings, beach weddings, weddings for folks who just love octopodes… these whimsical aquatic wedding invitations somehow manage to take vintage-era prints and make them totally new.

Marta and Christine celebrated their wedding with an intimate gathering of friends and family at Camp Blodgett on Lake Michigan. The day was characterized by opposites coming together: boho meets Ikea, with fun color details and a simple, modern look. The ceremony revolved around Dr. Seuss’s “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” and was written by Marta and Christine. Instead of a first dance, they led their their guests in a sing-along.
