Love + intention: a Wiccan park wedding with a breastfeeding baby as the "bouquet"

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.

A Mexican jungle oasis awaits at this intimate cenote wedding in Riviera Maya

Silvia and Luca met when they were young age but knew they wanted to walk through life together. After seven years together, they made it official with an intimate cenote wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico. They brought their favorite people to Mexico (all the way from Italy!) and packed the essentials for a simple and meaningful wedding day in the middle of the Mayan jungle. Don't miss Silvia's gorgeous beachy dress, the saxaphone-accompanied ceremony, and of course, the lush jungle backdrop.

This minimalist Philly wedding proves that simple is CHIC

We decided to do an old school Champagne and Cake reception immediately following the wedding in the same space, the Philadelphia Wedding Chapel. The chapel is a decorated, NY-style loft space and you simply show up. We hired musicians on our own as live music was not included. The wedding and reception was ninety minutes total at 3:00pm. Only twenty-six people were in attendance.

An intimate, ultraviolet Austrian wedding with bits of Scotland

Karin and Helge love Scotland and have spent several vacations there. So they decided to instill some of what they love into their ultraviolet dress and kilt, velvet shoes covered in embroidery (illustrating their last name!), and a horse-drawn carriage to transport all their guests. My favorite part? The bouquet was split into three parts and given to the three witnesses of the ceremony.

Two brides, a mountain view wedding, and cotton candy skies

They shared a love for the mountains of Colorado, so it was only natural that when plans to hold a big wedding bash in Kentucky fell through, they decided to live out another dream of having an intimate wedding with some serious Sound of Music scenery. Waking up to rainy dawn in Estes Park, Ali and Rachel began a slow morning of wedding prep. They did what we wish every couple would do, enjoyed their day and lived their moments. There was Elk watching, breakfast, hiking, and attempts to stave off the rain with "Isn't it Ironic" lyrics.
