We got married in Hell, Michigan and did most of our photos beforehand at the Elmwood Cemetery in Detroit. We wanted a whole “Wed Til’ We’re Dead” mood, and the location definitely helped…
Quarters Farm was not only a beautiful place for Krystyn and Joe to celebrate their wedding day but is also close to their hearts. Joe grew up in the family home on the property. The bed and breakfast and barn were transformed into the most gorgeous wedding space, too. Their casual boho vibe included elements of Lord of the Rings, one of the couples’ favorite series. They also planned events and outfit changes to celebrate Joe’s Scottish heritage, including Highland games. Don’t miss all of their decor touches, much of which was handmade by Krystyn’s sister. Keep an eye out for a huge “One Ring,” jars of wildflowers, a flower dude, and loads of kilts…
A train ride ceremony and stunning kilts and bridal suits at this Railroad Museum of New England wedding
At their Railroad Museum of New England wedding, Thiemba and Nate rocked historical looks with a custom made edible floral bouquet, a custom made bridal suit with french love letter inscribed on the inside, and an amazing kilt outfit. For their reception, Thiemba and Nate changed outfits to celebrate in steampunk style. Their wedding guests also wore steampunk-themed attire, which all looked amazing.
Our wedding was held at a gorgeous hall that is owned by a Franciscan monastery, which has little details that make it look like a medieval church (in the middle of Washington D.C.!). My husband collects swords, so our cocktail hour featured friends from the HEMA Alliance (the society for Historical European Martial Arts) performing a demonstration of sword fighting through the ages.
Caroline and Andy wanted a wedding that was uniquely theirs, with none of the fluff or traditions that were not meaningful to them. Instead, they opted to bring in things they love together. This included a “scotch blessing” before dinner for everyone with custom shot glasses. They even carefully curated an intimate wedding party pre-wedding cocktail hour to ease everyone’s pre-wedding stressors.
Karin and Helge love Scotland and have spent several vacations there. So they decided to instill some of what they love into their ultraviolet dress and kilt, velvet shoes covered in embroidery (illustrating their last name!), and a horse-drawn carriage to transport all their guests. My favorite part? The bouquet was split into three parts and given to the three witnesses of the ceremony.
