Ru and Matt’s wedding perfectly reflected them. The bride wore a striking Jenny Packham dress with messy, boho hair and they both had their tattoos proudly on display! Their epic cake played homage to their favourite 80s movie, Lost Boys, and they used lots of deep colours in the flowers and decor to show their love of all things Moroccan.
“Our wedding was very music-orientated”, said Ru, “we were also influenced by travel mostly, colour, Morocco, Thailand, elephants and boho! One of my favourite things was our cake from Little Cherry Cake Company. We didn’t want everything to be serious. We also had a Game of Thrones themed card box which I made.”
Meg and Jeremiah’s wedding had a gypsy and viking theme with a couple of special guests – a baby goat and their unborn child! They were married on a friend’s farm in June.
“I have always loved the romanticised version of gypsies and growing up my dad would always say I have gypsy blood”, explained Meg. “Jeremiah’s background is Acadian and Norwegian and we wanted to bring both of these things into our wedding. This was really a natural theme for us.”
“The main inspiration was the Solstice and Full Moon together. After picking the date based on those two things, everything just fell into place. We had tarot cards on all the tables and when it was time to eat, the MC randomly drew cards to see which table went first.”
“About one year before the wedding I started brewing mead, which is viking honey wine”, she said. “I wanted to have it on all the tables, instead of normal wine. I bought glass bottles from Ikea, and had an artist friend draw up a label that said ‘Gypsy Tears’ and the wedding date with a sad gypsy on it. I asked my cousin to make me a carnival cutout for people to take photos with that looked like a giant tarot card.”
But not just any pink dress, the most gorgeous, unusual thing you’ve ever seen! This bride caused quite a stir when I sneak peeked a shot of her on Instagram and Facebook, with so many of you asking where her outfit was from and
asking demanding to see more!
I am so excited to share Audri and Cody’s amazing Vegas elopement today. This one might just have become a contender for one of my all time favourite weddings too!
The couple were married at the Little White Wedding Chapel. “Our ceremony was short and sweet with a few of our close family members and friends”, said the bride. “We chose the drive thru option to be seated in there 60s pink Cadillac under the ‘tunnel of love’ that’s painted with baby cherubs hidden in clouds in a starry night sky scene!”
“We wanted our wedding to look unique, and to have a sort of dreamy feel to our photos. We just wanted to have fun and look back at our pictures with our son and that he’d think we were pretty cool! For the actual vibe of the wedding and our photos we got a LOT of ideas from another couple that was featured on Rock n Roll Bride – Ainsley and Sebastian! Their whole look was everything!”
Aubrey and Noah met in 2010 while both working at the venue where they chose to get married. They started dating two years later, and within four months of that Aubrey was pregnant!
“Our wedding was meaningful and representative of our relationship”, said the bride. “We also had a dash of purple and gold as our colour scheme. I tried to incorporate things we love throughout such as tattoos, so we had a temporary tattoo booth. We both like baseball, but love two different teams so I had bobble heads made to represent them both. Since we share a love for music, having the wedding at the music venue we met at was awesome. We made a concert poster and custom guitar picks as favours. Noah is a beer fanatic so we had beer koozies as favours too.”
Patrick and Nicolle didn’t want a big, fancy wedding. Instead they wanted to get married in a way that felt meaningful to them. They decided to elope, but to invite a few very close friends… although they didn’t tell them they were getting married until they arrived!
“We were married at sunset on a cliff overlooking Elliot Bay and the Olympic Mountains on the Puget Sound in Washington ,” said the bride. “It was beautiful! Ryan, the officiant, is one of my closest friends. When we asked him to get ordained and wed us, we only had one request – to start it like the clergy in the classic movie The Princess Bride. He did one better and performed the entire ceremony from the movie. He nailed it! We wrote our own vows and just had fun with it.”
Kat and Halo both have pretty unconventional looks, so their wedding was going to be anything but boring! They brought lots of geeky elements into their May wedding.
“We honestly couldn’t pick just one thing as our theme, so we chose all the nerdy things we enjoyed and made sure they had their place”, said the bride. “We were inspired by our daily lives, and our desire to always find things fun or happy.”
They wanted their wedding to feel like them, but they also included some traditions to keep their families happy. “I think our wedding was pretty different in how we incorporated some traditional aspects for our conservative families but did it in a way which stayed true to ourselves. I think we blended alternative and conventional pretty well!”
