Multicultural fusion and fire engines as seen on @offbeatbride

Be inspired by this multicultural fusion wedding (with a fire engine!)

The bride was living in Istanbul, the groom was in Mexico, her family hails from Scotland, but the wedding was to be held in England. Talk about a lot of Googling and Skyping to get this wedding planned! Good thing they had access to the groom’s gorgeous childhood home and backyard to which they could DIY it to high heaven. Just wait until you see the bride’s red sari, the Indian-meets-UK catering, and the amazing fire engine!

Whetstone Park of Roses wedding as seen on @offbeatbride

A daddy/daughter cake smooshing and emerald green dress at this Ohio wedding

Joanna and Keon shared a gorgeous garden wedding at Whetstone Park of Roses in Ohio complete with the bride’s emerald green gown and colorful bouquet, the groom’s killer socks and adorable bow tie, and “to infinity and beyond” cake topper (a favorite line shared by both the groom and his daughter). But the sweetest tidbit of all is the shared moment between the bride and the groom’s daughter at the ceremony. Oh wait, maybe it was the daddy/daughter cake smooshing. Either way, there are some must-see moments at this Ohio wedding. Don’t miss the seed packet favors, too!
