We had no decor, only the crashing waves and stormy skies. Our friend and officiant started the ceremony with a reading of a poem JRR Tolkien wrote for his wife.
Karen and Liam got married in Ireland fall of 2019. They had a blended family ceremony, with their 13-year-old son singing and Karen breastfeeding her 10-month-old while getting ready. Karen also rocked her bald look, and when listing her wedding vendors, she noted, “Hair: N/A!”
Torrential downpours in San Diego didn’t stop Katie and Mike from having one hell of a wedding. Green Acres’ glass building was a gorgeous industrial meets rustic indoor space. They described their wedding as Sons of Anarchy chic meets farmhouse vibes meets modern warehouse. And just wait until you see the dessert table that had amazing donuts.
Don’t miss Katie’s first dance with her son…
Janessa and Tyler rocked a vintage 1970s-inspired theme including Janessa’s custom dress with epic sleeves (made from a vintage pattern), and Tyler’s casual look with a vintage tie. Everything from the locally brewed beer to the French champagne toast had a chic and laid-back vibe. They’re animal lovers so they even had a visit from some alpacas!
This was the vow renewal dream come true for Mehek and Lokesh who, seven years earlier, had a very traditional Indian wedding. They said they felt like they were living their own Bollywood dream by renewing their vows in Paris. You’ll definitely want to see the bright pink details and a fabulously detailed bouquet. They toasted with rosé champagne and ate cake on the Champ de Mars after the ceremony.
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.
