Zandra's cemetery wedding #Real Weddings: Canada#british columbia#cemetery#wedding in the round October 30 2007 | Ariel offbeatresilience The offbeat bride: Zandra, Art Director My offbeat groom: Jordan, Creative Director Location & date of wedding: Ross Bay Cemetery, Victoria, BC May 13th 2006 What made our wedding offbeat: We got married in a cemetery overlooking the ocean — it was beautiful. Our biggest challenge: Getting an approval for the ceremony by the city, they wanted to make sure we weren't having a freak show or being disrespectful but it was not a difficult thing to prove. We just walked them through what we were doing. Ultimately they were more amused because no-one had ever made that request before so we were the first. My favorite moment: We could really feel the love from all our guests and that made the ceremony magical. Also because we were in a big circle we could see everyone we invited so it was much more intimate. My offbeat advice: It's your wedding, so do what makes you happy and don't worry about pleasing everyone because you can't. And have FUN, hopefully you're only doing this once. 😉 Enough talk — show me the wedding porn: Photos here, and wedding info over here. Tell me all about your offbeat wedding!

I especially like the orange and brown color scheme. We also considered a cemetary at one point; it's fun to see how that turned out for someone else. Reply I bet that was beautiful .. I think that cemetary's are beautiful places the dramatic headstones and trees … the sense of peace .. congratulations … Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
