krwed146My husband is as unconventional as I am, so I was not at all surprised when he decided to wear a tunic and sarong for our wedding. He occasionally wears sarongs, particularly during hot weather or for spiritual occasions where he wants to feel grounded and close to the earth. We had our ceremony in our back yard on June 23, so a sarong made sense. I made the sarong, as well as a tunic and necklace for him.

Kwame getting ready in his studio space while I was getting dressed next door.

He picked out the fabrics and beads and gave me a basic idea of what he wanted design-wise, and I went from there. I have to say I was pretty happy with how well it turned out.

krwed89I did a little beading on his tunic to emphasize the spirals in the pattern.

krwed137He also wore a set of bamboo fighting sticks that had belonged to his father who passed away when he was a teen.

His outfit went over surprisingly well. His brother was so impressed that he asked me to make him his own sarong and tunic, and my brother wanted to wear a sarong for the ceremony too. Must have been the sexy legs.

Sexy legs, sexy hair, sexy bride, this wedding is a whole lotta sexy. Hopefully we'll hear more about Kwame and Rebecca's wedding soon!

  1. What a handsome man, and what a beautiful bride! I love both of your outfits! I would love to hear more about the wedding.

  2. Kwame's outfit is stunning, and your dress is TO DIE FOR! Congratulations to you both—you're two very lucky people.

  3. Awesome. A handsome couple, and personally I have to say that I love a man in a sarong even though it's pretty rare to see around here.

  4. You did a beautiful job making your husband's outfit. It really shows your love for him and what is important to him. At the same time, my eyes kept going up and down your outfit! Tell us about your dress! And I love love love your toe ring anklet. I wish I could have a barefoot wedding! And of course also congratulations to many years of happiness and fun to come!

  5. Holy wow. This is awesome in so many ways. I hope it's not terribly inappropriate to say that your husband is a FOX.

  6. I would second that he is a fox and you're quite the vixen 🙂

    Love his tunic and sarong and as for you, you gorgeous thing you, pant pant, a pixie/ballerina skirt that is pick skirt too with strapless bodice, that dress rocks my socks off!

    Hope that you have a great wedding and submit a full profile so that we can see more.

    Cheers,

    Sid

  7. Gorgeous. All of it. Need to know where you fortunate people live to have your photos taken at the beach! A very talented woman you are! And a hubby that wears a sarong for his wedding outfit…raddest dude ever.

  8. I am pleased to see that your man wore a sarong at your wedding, its been worn for years in the past in Hawaii and other cultures too. I wanted my man to wear a sash with a white pants and white shirt ( an Hawaiian tradition) but he would not do that for the wedding.He wore a Hawaiian shirt instead. Great wedding pictures!!

  9. I have to say, I was at Rebecca & Kwame's wedding and it was the most amazing wedding I've ever witnessed. Proud to be a friend of them both.

  10. The photos on the beach are gorgeous! Wonderful coordination too, she looks like a carefree jellyfish princess and he looks so earthy and handsome! wow!
