After their ceremony at the Marriage Bureau, the group hightailed it to Brooklyn for a DIY brunch where the newlyweds themselves got busy arranging bagels and schmear, cheese and fruit platters, and flutes of champagne.

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.
