Eclectic & Modern Bohemian Wedding

Sara and Thom made their family and friends the focus for their summer wedding; they wanted to create a comfortable space for everyone to hang out, get to know each other, have good food and just enjoy themselves. Most of their friends and family were travelling out of state to join them in their celebrations, so they wanted to make it kid friendly so everyone could relax together, too.

Aesthetically, they didn’t really have a theme, but they wanted their personal styles to be reflected in their decor. “We wanted sort of an eclectic vintage boho modern vibe without looking too trendy,” said Sara.  “But I have to admit we didn’t need to do much because our venue was already perfect. I mean – open air chapel built with antique doors found in Paris, overlooking a pasture where horses are galloping by during the ceremony? We didn’t need a theme!”

Glitter & Grunge: An Acrobatic Wedding in Brooklyn

Rob and Hannah wanted to throw a fun party for their friends and family for their wedding day, and were inspired by the juxtaposition in their personalities; Rob is a born and bred New Yorker who loves 90s grunge cultures, and Hannah is an acrobatic performer that is always covered in glitter.

Hosted at House of Yes in Brooklyn, NY, where Hannah works regularly, they took away a lot of the formalities of a traditional wedding. They didn’t have flowers or a bridal/groom party. Instead they each had a wrangler to make sure they were both hydrated and feeling good. They had cocktail hour before the ceremony, not after, and they served Mexican food instead of a sit-down dinner as a wedding breakfast.

As an aerial performer, there was no question that Hannah was going to make an entrance on her big day – she came in from the ceiling on her aerial cube for the ceremony. They were married by a friend. “I have a non-traditional family,” said Hannah. “Two gay dads and my mum. We found a way to incorporate all three of them into bringing me to Rob. Rob’s father and older brother passed away a few years ago; so it was very important to have his mum and nephew on stage for the ceremony as well.”

Red Rock Roadtrip Elopement – with Irn Bru toast!

Lauren (from Fife in Scotland) and Matt met while Lauren was solo travelling in the USA in 2015 – they met in New York and bonded over music, live shows and wine on a Brooklyn brownstone rooftop overlooking the Manhattan skyline. They stayed in touch, talking everyday, after that and their love blossomed. He even sold his car to visit Scotland to meet her family and friends!

After doing long distance for a while. flying back and forth and having epic road trip adventures in both countries, Lauren was lucky enough to get a work visa and move to Philadelphia with her company for a year. In 2017, Matt proposed at the top of a mountain on one of their many road trips, and Lauren made the move to Brooklyn to be with him full time.

With their love of travel, it made perfect sense for them to elope – and get married at the top of another mountain – this time in Sedona, Arizona. They finished off with another road trip down the West Coast – catching places like Vegas, Bryce Canyon, LA and San Diego.

Playful Adventure Themed Wedding… with a Husky Ring Bearer!

Chris and Luana met completely through happenstance: Chris was on his way home from a pool party with friends, when they decided to stop for food. Luana happened to be working the counter that fateful evening, and the rest, they say, is history. They had their rehearsal dinner at the very same restaurant nearly 10 years later.

After Chris proposed at their annual trip to Coachella, the couple married at the Los Angeles River Centre and Gardens in an outdoor ceremony, with a reception at the same venue after.

The couple knew from the start that their rescue pup, Roky, would be involved in the ceremony, and he made the most of his moment in the spotlight by barking at the priest during their blessing! “Everyone else was quiet so he thought it was his turn to speak up and give us his own blessing” laughed Luana. “It was one of my favourite moments of the whole day”.

The Big Lebowski Inspired Wedding Powered By Nature… and Tacos!

Kelly and Buck were married in September in an outdoor ceremony at Riveredge Nature Centre in Wisconsin, with a barn reception at the same venue.

Kelly, a print maker and paper artist extraordinaire, met Buck through her best friend Molly. They soon discovered a shared love for drawing, and Kelly, who works as an Admissions Counsellor for a Milwaukee art college, encouraged Buck to pursue his passion for drawing professionally. Buck picked up an apprenticeship and now works as a tattoo artist.

Heavily inspired by creativity and nature for their decor choices on the day, Kelly, together with best friend Molly created all the paper florals by hand; the reception decor, the bouquets and the flower crowns from crepe paper. Place names and table numbers were displayed with handwritten delicate paper leaves. The couple also included deer in their decor, with antlers on the top table and adorable an golden deer cake topper too.
