Sustainable, Bohemian, Backyard Wedding with Homemade Macrame & Self-Grown Succulents

Andrew and Brittney gave themselves just four months to plan their August 2018 wedding. It was important to the couple to keep sustainability and frugality in mind with all the decision making for their wedding day. They had a $10,000 maximum budget, but in reality they managed to keep it just under $9,000. They held the day at Brittney’s parents back garden which meant they didn’t have to shell out for expensive venue hire.

For decor they used a lot of things they had already acquired throughout their relationship, and anything they purchased would have a purpose and place after the wedding day. They rented the majority of larger items, and skipped things like favours and invitations as they wanted to limit the amount of disposable stuff that was involved in their day. They wanted as much natural beauty as possible in their day. They had plants everywhere, even hanging in macrame from the trees.

Artistic, Laidback, Backyard Style Wedding with Tacos and Succulents

Jocelyn and Nathan met when Nathan was playing in a band and Jocelyn happened to be at one of their shows. After locking eyes before Nathan headed on stage, Jocelyn did what any good millennial would do – found him on Facebook to say hey… and the rest, as they say is, history!

When it came to planning their wedding day, they were heavily inspired by the look and feel of the events that their venue, Workshop, Pittsburgh, were already holding, so used that as a starting off point. With it’s art-covered walls and whiskey lounge basement it had all the makings of a unique venue, so aside from dressing the hell out of it with flowers, they let the space do the talking!

Moody, Boho Wedding with Smoke Bombs, Succulents & Two Dresses!

Selena and Simon met on a dating site almost ten years ago, and have a son together. As life has a habit of doing, they never seemed to have the time to get married – so when they did, they went all out! They had the mindset that they were only going to get married once, so they’d do it how they wanted to.

For them, this meant mashing together all the things they love, and foregoing what was expected of them. They ignored traditions that didn’t suit them, like throwing the bouquet, and kept those that did, like a father-daughter dance. They had one impetus only; ensuring all their decision sat well with both of them, and having lots of fun!

Succulent-Filled South of France Themed Wedding… with a Rice Krispie Wedding Cake!

Although they’d gone to the same school and have family members who’ve known each other since they were tiny, Kirsten and Jack’s paths didn’t cross until a Christmas Eve pub visit in 2013. They had their first date that same Boxing Day and have been together ever since! As it has a way of doing, life tried to throw a spanner in the works when a month into their relationship, Jack was offered a job in Nice. They did long distance for a year and then Kirsten followed her heart and moved to France to be with Jack. It’s there, after three years, that they got engaged, so it made sense for the South of France to feature heavily in their Glaswegian wedding!

Kirsten, with a background in theatre and events design, took great delight in designing the look of the wedding and let her creativity go wild. Inspired by the tropical flowers and foliage of Nice, palm trees, birds of paradise and succulents featured heavily throughout.

They collected pebbles from the beach (and ferried them home in their suitcases for 18 months before the wedding!) to use along the aisle and as place settings. Their guests also enjoyed chocolate pebbles as favours, and each went home with a cactus, palm tree or leaf enamel pin as a memento from the day, which Kirsten loved seeing everyone wear in the evening.

Romantic Rustic Jewish Mountain Wedding

Emyli and Matt’s Denver wedding was rustic and romantic, understated and unbelievably pretty. Inspired by the mountains and an open bar, they brought slick style to the gorgeous wildness for their guests, drawing on their love of the outdoors, motocross, and Emyli’s Jewish traditions for a celebration with serious flair.

Emyli walked down the aisle in a beautiful backless halterneck Sarah Seven dress (and gorgeous lilac hair that’s total #hairgoals) to Hans Zimmer’s You’re So Cool. “Looking back, I wish I’d walked slower down the aisle but I was too excited!” she says. “The sun came out just for our ceremony underneath a chuppah on the Strawberry Creek Ranch lawn and it was perfect. Our small dog, Sarah, fell asleep during the ceremony – in spite of us trying to keep it super short and sweet – so I guess it was a little boring!”
