Andreas & Ariel's island hippie/raver forest freak-fest (10th anniversary flashback!)

10 years ago today, the wedding that ultimately kicked off the whole weird world that is Offbeat Bride happened. On August 7th 2004, I married Andreas. Then I wrote a book about it. Then I launched a website about the book, and now here we are. To celebrate, I figured I'd fill out a wedding profile myself. If these pics make you curious, you can get the Offbeat Bride book on Amazon for like 50 cents.

Siobhan & Chadwick's moon-loving techno-hippie wedding

When the couple calls themselves "moon-loving techno-hippies," we know we're in for some fun. Get ready for some family vows (and a family sand ceremony!), some cat-loving vows, and a desert horizon at a ranch that ended up being their ideal location. It's a small, outdoor wedding with big heart.

Jesse & Ben's potluck backyard hippie handfasting

When you're in the mood to kick tradition out, this is the celebration to see: a non-legal backyard solstice potluck with a VERY participatory ceremony, personal tattoos instead of rings, and a super sweet memorial for the groom's father. These adorable hippies knew what they wanted and embraced it full-on. And we get to see it all come together!
