Kristina and Nathan live in Florida, but headed to Corpus Christi, TX for their Texas sci-fi wedding. Kristina’s outfit reminds us of classic Offbeat Bride style with colored crinoline, a tiny top hat, and a cocktail-length skirt. She even had a handmade paper flower bouquet. We love it!
“I got divorced a couple of years back and am partnered again planning a wedding for Halloween 2020. However, we decided to do the whole kid thing beforehand and will hopefully have a little one at our wedding by then. I’m looking for advice/examples of bad-ass families who married post-baby. I’m having a hard time finding anything.” Hell yes we have examples! Come and see…
Retro decor finds, tons of DIYed macrame details, and a ’70s-inspired theme were at the center of this wedding’s aesthetic. But it was the love that got us in the end. Sweet and meaningful song choices, a sweet first look, and some awesome dance moves swept us away in Shannon and Andy’s macrame wedding in Calgary. Don’t miss their sweet young daughter in her flower crown, too!
We wanted something small that fit us, but could also include our children and family. We didn't want to just run off to the courthouse. We wanted it to be simple and stress-free. We bounced ideas of locations back and forth. Maggie from Pop! Wed Co. suggested the “LOVE” mural at Blagden Alley. We were in DC for New Years so we checked it out and fell in love with it.
The theme to our wedding was modern, Tuscan black tie. We had champagne taste on a beer and butter budget. We splurged on the picture perfect venue and catering, but everything else you see was DIY. I hand crafted everything from flowers to centerpieces and signs to decor. They say every wedding has at least one planning nightmare. Mine happened to be the biggest nightmare for me ever. The store I purchased my dress from went BANKRUPT and closed its doors just eight weeks before my wedding!
