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.”

Unconventionally Geeky Wedding

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!”

Krystal and Jarrod have been married for ten years and so wanted to do a photo shoot which would document them and their relationship as it stands today. Jarrod owns a garage which is where the session took place.

“I knew Krystal and Jarrod were celebrating their upcoming 10 year anniversary and wanted to do a shoot for them capturing the love they still have for each other, especially showing their comfort together”, explained photographer Kelley. “Engagement photos tend to be so over-the-top with love and affection – it ’s new, they’re excited to be getting married, life is some what easy… But having been married for 10 years is an accomplishment – still liking (and loving) each other after all that time even more so!”

A November Rain Inspired Wedding Dress

Yes that’s right – Kitty and Stu’s wedding, or more specifically the bride’s dress, was inspired by the November Rain music video. They had lots of other musical influences throughout the day too.

“We wanted music to be a huge part of our day, and for it to be as chilled out as possible”, said the bride. “We opted to ditch the traditional three course meal and instead served fish n chips and burgers and fries. My dress was inspired by the Guns n Roses November Rain video and we had a friend’s cover band play in the evening. We also spent weeks working on our wedding playlist.”

Spanish-born Vero and Agus had been living in London for five years before their wedding so they wanted to bring a bit of ‘Britishness’ into their wedding back home. They chose their venue, Jardín Müller in Granada, because it reminded them of the gardens in the UK.

“Our wedding theme was shabby chic”, said the bride, “and I got a lot of ideas from wedding blogs. I wanted the wedding to be a celebration with family and friends.”

“On the day, everything was perfect. Time flew from the morning to the night. There were so many unique moments: the time I spent with my sister in the hotel, the arrival to the gardens, that moment when Agus saw me, our proud and happy parents, the excitement, the happiness, the tears… It was a magical day.”
