Turtles! Brunch! Dogs in ties! This rainbow lesbian wedding is all about furever love

Since Caitlin proposed to Kris with the tortoises at the Southwick Zoo, we included the turtles in all our little details including a custom logo designed by Caitlin/paper straws with turtle cutouts (save the sea turtles!), handknit turtle coffee sleeve favors which doubled as a seating chart by Caitlin’s grandmother Marcia, and even more turtle decorations.

Since it was a lesbian wedding, we of course had to include rainbows!

A Jurassic Park wedding with a real park vehicle and dino attack

We had a Jurassic Park theme complete with dancing dinosaurs and a Jurassic Park Explorer. We wanted to put an elegant classy twist on something very quirky. We had a donut wall Billy made to look like the park gates at Jurassic park, adorned with Krispy Kremes, and a selection of cupcakes and kringle. During the reception, our officiant came in dressed as a t-rex and cut a rug!

Think boudoir shoots aren't right for you? Then you've never seen radically inclusive boudoir

One thing that attracted me to the Offbeat Empire way back in the day was its focus on representation: through couples of color, those all along the gender spectrum, all types of LGBTQ+ couples and polyamorous relationships, all body sizes, all ages, and more.

I'm pretty sure you're going to feel exactly the same way…

Our hearts warmed upon seeing this homegrown backyard woodland wedding

We wanted a forest-themed wedding because of our shared love of nature and the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in which we live. We also wanted to focus on our friends, family, and community. We sought out vendors we knew, the caterer used produce from the farm where Adrienne volunteers. The favors (goat's milk soap) and the flowers both came from vendors at our farmer's market.

Two film lovers had a Hawaiian Jurassic Park wedding at the REAL film location

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom comes out today! We've got a Jurassic Park wedding that took place in one of the REAL film locations: "We didn't even know we wanted a themed (or destination) wedding until I was browsing venue sites and came across Kualoa Ranch in Hawaii. When I first saw the photos of the sweeping valley and dramatic mountains I laughed and told my partner that it looked like Jurassic Park…then we googled it…and it WAS Jurassic Park! Well, at least a few of the filming locations. We knew right then and there that we were going to Hawaii…"
