The hottest wedding ever: a fire & performance themed wedding (where the brides burned their dresses!)
The theme of our wedding was performance. We are professional performers and have lots of performing friends. We had many different performances from Burlesque, Fire, Aerial, Dance, Hip-Hop, Belly Dance, Singing, Juggling, and more.
But the wildest part was that we ended the ceremony by lighting our dresses on fire!
I’m a witch, my husband is not. He knows now after being with me this long that I care a great deal about ritual, intention, and love. So, we set out to do everything by hand. We braided our own handfasting rope, we decorated our broom together, we brewed mead together, we painted and created our whole twelve (12!) invitations together. During anything we did, we lit a red candle, and we would hush to each other about love. We would declare our intent.
Kristina and Nathan live in Florida, but headed to Corpus Christi, TX for their Texas sci-fi wedding. Kristina’s outfit reminds us of classic Offbeat Bride style with colored crinoline, a tiny top hat, and a cocktail-length skirt. She even had a handmade paper flower bouquet. We love it!
It’s September which means that it’s totally Halloween season! You might think it’s too early, but this Ireland goth wedding inspiration says otherwise. We’re totally prepared to bask in the skull decor, deep red drinks, gold on black stationery, anatomical hearts, and an eerily gorgeous cake. Don’t miss these two gorgeous people sporting blue hair, stunning makeup, a black corset, and a silver brocade coat.
An intimate cocktail bar and a nearby forest served as the backdrops for this shoot and it’s getting us in that spooky mood we love…
Our theme followed the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole. It was a whimsical vintage-inspired Alice tea party. We had it set at the Rose Court Garden at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim. The reception captured the quirkiness of the Mad Hatter's tea party. The party ended when some 1920s-themed tap dancers crashed the party and lead our guests into a Charleston dancing competition.
Sasha and Masya said that when they met, it was love at first sight and it seemed like it had come straight out of ancient Greek mythology. So it made perfect sense to channel the gods in an ancient Greek ceremony pulling from modern Greek traditions. In terms of style, this is where the pair shined. Think transparent lace in Greek goddess style, a blue mohawk, lots of amazing ink, bare feet, bejeweled anklets, and a pleated white Greek-inspired skirt and white sandals on the groom.
