Urban Industrial Wedding in Lithuania

The Lithuanian wedding of Evelina and Martynas was set in an industrial venue, which set the tone for the day. They used lots of black and grey in their decor with brass and some bright pink accents. They also wanted to combine lots of different textures with their choice of plants.

“The wedding style inspiration was based on ourselves, our relationship, things and rituals what are usual for us and entertains us in daily life”, said the bride. “We grew up in the city, we are the children of asphalt, and nowadays we can’t imagine not spending all our time in the city  We love the energy so there was no way we were going to get married in a castle, mansion or in the countryside! We just wanted to be open to ourselves and our closest people on our wedding day.”

DIY Wedding in Chile with their Dog as the Videographer!

Wedding photographers Cathy and Seba really knew what they wanted, but also what they didn’t want, for their own wedding. They were married in Chile in August and put their biggest effort into enjoying the whole process and into making as much as possible with their own hands.

“Our wedding was, relaxed, DIY and focused on us and our friends,” said Cathy.  “We didn’t have one specific inspiration, but we made a Pinterest moodboard with all the things we saw all over the internet and wanted for our day.”

Vintage Pin Up Wedding with a Touch of The Great Gatsby

Bre and Matt’s wedding had a vintage yet moody theme with some Great Gatsby references. They were married in British Columbia in Canada in September. Their ceremony was on a rooftop overlooking the Okanagan Lake.

“We met when were were 13 and aged 17 we agreed that if we weren’t married to other people by 25 we’d marry each other!” Bre began. “Life took us on separate paths for a while, but we reconnected and actually started dating when we were 23. Not long after we started dating, we went on a big road trip, and one night on the California coast Matt told me he loved me. Fast forward two years and Matt planned another trip for us, which brought us back to the exact same place he told me he loved me. That night he proposed to me on the balcony overlooking the ocean. That promise we made when we were 17 had been kept, and at 25 we were engaged!”

Romantic, Gothic, Addams Family Inspired Wedding

Hollianne and Jonathan’s New Jersey wedding was inspired by their favourite couple: Gomez and Morticia from the Aadam’s Family.

The bride opted for a black evening gown from Sherri Hill instead of a traditional white dress. “I tried to find black wedding gowns but no one carries them in stock and it’s hard to try on something white and imagine it, yuck! At least buying an evening gown came at a severely discounted price ($480 if I remember correctly). My shoes were grey velvet brocade Doc Martens that I found on Amazon, three days before the wedding! I also wore a cute $5 headband I found at the mall (no shame in my thrift game). We didn’t have any flowers in the wedding and I made my own bouquet and the centrepieces with fake flowers from Michael’s and craft stores.”

Bohemian & Industrial Wedding in Michigan with a $900 Budget!

Ally and Jeff wanted their wedding to really reflect who they are so they chose a bohemian industrial theme. They wanted the styling to be pretty and light but with rough edges. Their wedding budget was just $900, and they saved money by enlisting the help of family and friends where possible.

“Our ceremony was super short and to the point” began Ally, “We only had maybe 40 people there so it was very intimate, with a lot of happy tears. Our favourite part of the wedding had to be seeing how happy and excited our family and close friends were for us both, it really meant a lot.”
