Hooray! You’ve been invited to a pagan wedding! We’re so excited for you. That said, depending on your background or your beliefs, you might feel a little confused. What’s in store? Why is everyone standing in a circle? Are we talking about gods?
Amani and Josh, Broadway actress and sound guru respectively, are creative forces who put together one hell of a backyard-style garden wedding. The wedding was held in one of Austin’s most interesting venue spaces, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, and featured a fab crop top dress, an embroidered groom’s jacket, the jumping of the broom, and so many colorful details in the decor.
The bride wore a chic pantsuit, the groom wore locs and paisley, and the DIYed rustic burlap details (including a chic as hell fabric flower bouquet!) are killer. This potluck wedding has so much style on so little budget. Oh, and just wait until you hear how the bride walked herself down the aisle. Spoiler alert: she SANG A SONG while she walked. Oh hell yes. Get ready to swoon at this amazing wedding.
This couple rocked a gorgeous arch in Brooklyn for their customized pop-up ceremony and then transformed into Jack Skellington and Sally for their Halloween-themed reception! Excited yet? Don’t miss the DIYed spooky decor, the gorgeous white jacket on the bride, and the amazingly delicious-looking Halloween-themed dessert table.
This bride never thought she’d get married, so when she found the love of her life, they both knew it was going to be anything but traditional. Queue an amazing music theme with cassette tapes, vinyl, Air Jordans (including an Air Jordan cake!), and lots of retro details. Don’t miss the paper flowers, boombox-carrying ring bearers, and mid-ceremony dance from the bride’s sister.
