Pirate wedding in Puerto Rico on @offbeatbride

Sword fights and hot booty: Don’t miss Ashley & Erik’s Caribbean pirate wedding

You guys, we know a good pirate wedding when we see one, and this one brings the house down with its Caribbean locale, amazingly detailed costumes, ACTUAL SWORD FIGHT at the ceremony, super well-crafted pirate-themed decor (including treasure chests), cardboard cut-outs, fire spinners, drunken video guest book, pirate-themed scavenger hunt, and my favorite father/daughter walk down the aisle yet.

Apples skewered on bare branches + purple calla lilies = tablescape that will haunt your dreams

I was all HOLY FUCK, OFFBEAT BRIDES ARE GOING TO DIE. You have to see more.
