Be swept away by this nature-loving secret elopement in Annapolis

For us this day was a LONG time in the making. Rob and I have had a crazy, fun, and caring relationship from the very beginning and of course our wedding had those same traits. With both of us having chronic/incurable diseases, it has helped put a focus on living in the moment and loving each other with that same intensity. Every day being a battle with our bodies and what could come, we knew that we wanted to be in each other’s lives for good, so why not just make it official?

Why this behind-the-scenes ninja & logistical badass is the wedding planner of your offbeat dreams

Sometimes an offbeat vendor just melts into our mindset so well that they've felt like they were always a part of us.

Don't miss the faux hawk at this ultra beautiful DIYed wedding

Ria and Will are both tax lawyers so their wedding day was infused with lawyer jokes, beginning with their hashtag, #filingjointly. Ria also has a daring but soft side, so her hair was swept up in an amazing faux-hawk. She finished the look with her signature hot pink lipstick and vintage jewelry.

Ria went wild with DIY including the cake (a spice cake with cream cheese icing!), handcrafted invitations, dried floral bouquets, and amazing centerpieces. She painted every wooden flower and picked every vintage tea cup for the tables. It was an event full of love, humor, and tons of artistry.

This art museum wedding was a celebration of outsider art, craftiness, and veggie comfort food

Taylor and Jade chose the American Visionary Art Museum as their venue because it's a space they personally love, and they appreciate that it features outsider art. And of course, throughout the celebration, guests could wander the museum and look at the art. Bonus for art lovers! To up the craftiness game, Jade sewed her entire wedding outfit! Their decor was also heavily DIYed and included succulents and sprigs of Eucalyptus.

For favors, they gave out prints of a film photograph Taylor had taken at one of their favorite spots. This wedding just screams sincerity and we can't get enough of it…
