Spanish Bohemian Inspired Wedding in Mexico

Justin and Andrea used their venue, Los Tamarindos in San Jose del Cabo, as the main inspiration for their 2019 wedding. The location already had tipis all around the property, which they loved, so they took that idea and ran with it.

“It really felt like an authentic Mexican Hacienda”, the bride told us. “We wanted the wedding to feel authentic to Mexican culture. We spend a lot of time in Cabo with our family and friends. We really love the food, drinks, music, language and how friendly the people are. We tried to really incorporate that.”

“The venue was an authentic farm to table restaurant located on a farm that dates back to the 19th century. We had Palomas, a worm salt tequila shot bar and we skipped the traditional cake to have Panna Cotta, a churro cart as well as Paletas.”

Modern & Minimalistic Woodland Wedding

Who says a woodland wedding needs to be rustic or boho? Both lovers of clean lines and modern minimalistic décor, Aaron and Katie wanted that reflected in their September day. The bride also always wanted to get married in a forest location so finding Pinewood Weddings & Events, located an hour north of Minneapolis, in was the perfect combination for their vision.

“Honestly, we just chose the things we love the most to feature (darts, great music, hot sauce etc)”, the bride explained. “We DIY’d a seating chart installation with darts and cork boards. Aaron and I spray painted each dart ourselves to match the colours of our
wedding. Our colours were sage green, emerald green, chartreuse green, burnt orange, marigold yellow and blush pink. We also used hand drawn trees and plants for the table names and numbers.” Another unique touch was their ‘guest book’ where they asked guests to sign some of their favourite records. They then hung them up in their house afterwards.

The Night Sky, Skulls & Rock n Roll Inspired Tipi Wedding in the Rain

Brad and Joolz chose 27th July 2019 for their wedding so didn’t think they’d have to worry about the weather… however the universe had other ideas! Despite having a mostly outdoor day planned, and it being scorching hot the week before, it chucked it down all day. Rather than stress about it through, they grabbed some umbrellas, moved their ceremony inside the tipi and embraced the chaos.

“If there was one thing I had repeatedly said for the year leading up to the wedding, it was that I wanted a beautiful hot summer wedding and no rain!” Joolz began. “Well, it rained non-stop ALL WEEKEND but oh how we didn’t care! When it comes down to it, after all the planning, stress, organisation, creating, making and everything else that you think is important, it turns out none of it’s important at all. When I stepped out of the car my brother drove with my dad, ducked under my umbrella laughing with the girls in the rain, it all just seemed so trivial and ridiculous! We were about to have the best day of our lives, and the rain just made it all the more special.”

Woodland Party Wedding with A Basketball Tournament, A Pop Up Tattoo Studio & the Bride in a Fuchsia Cape

If Little Red Riding Hood was a Rock n Roll bride and got married in 2020, we’re pretty sure her wedding would look a little something like this. Vero and Oscar (who were actually married pre-Covid in the summer of 2019) live in Barcelona and got married at Arborètum Mas Joan, a 12th century farmhouse where the owners’ family has lived since 1710.

Surrounded by the tallest trees in Catalonia, the couple hosted their wedding entirely on their own terms and complete with a basketball tournament, a pop up tattoo studio, painting activities for the kids and a football table to keep everyone entertained. For catering they had food trucks each covering some of their favourite counties and cuisines (Italian, Japanese, Indian and Spanish).

Metal Music Lovers’ Italian Wedding with a Black Wedding Dress & A First Dance to Rammstein

When you picture an Italian wedding, you might be forgiven for thinking it would be super traditional and definitely in a church, but when the couple in question met at one of Italy’s biggest metal music festivals, their wedding was definitely going to go down a little differently. Erica and Antonio chose to tie the knot at Cà del Facco, a farm meets holiday home in the Lombardy countryside where they brought their relaxed, romantic wedding (that still felt totally ‘them’) to life.

One of the most unique elements about the day was that the bride chose to wear black in the form of a black lace and layered tulle gown from Clara Couture and she paired it with a matching black veil. The groom wore a deep blue damask suit with a walking stick and a top hat!

Dreamy and Glamorous Boho Wedding

Megan and Mike wanted a glamorous boho theme, with a feeling of dreamy freedom and elements of a fairytale. They hired wedding planner AMV Weddings to help them bring together their theme and vision and also coordinate on the day.

Their favourite part of the day was their outdoor ceremony. Their florist, Desiree Dean Designs, made them a beautiful arch to get married under and the aisle was strewn with white rose petals. Flowers were one of their biggest expenses but they wanted both the ceremony and reception spaces to feel very lush and green.

“I remember standing at the start of the aisle, staring at Mike, and saying to my dad ‘is this seriously real life right now?'”, Megan said. “I felt like I was in a dream. Everyone we loved was at the same place and watching me marry the man I love. it was an insane feeling. We shared vows that made our ceremony super personal. I cried and we laughed, It couldn’t have been more perfect.”
